   SUSE Recommended Update: Recommended update for jq

Announcement ID:    SUSE-RU-2020:1266-1
Rating:             moderate
References:         #1170838 
Affected Products:
                    SUSE Linux Enterprise Module for Basesystem 15-SP1

   An update that has one recommended fix can now be installed.


   This update for jq fixes the following issues:

   jq was updated to version 1.6:

   * Destructuring Alternation
   * many new builtins (see docs)
   * Add support for ASAN and UBSAN
   * Make it easier to use jq with shebangs
   * Add $ENV builtin variable to access environment
   * Add JQ_COLORS env var for configuring the output colors
   * change: Calling jq without a program argument now always assumes "." for
     the program, regardless of stdin/stdout
   * fix: Make sorting stable regardless of qsort.

   - Make jq depend on libjq1, so upgrading jq upgrades both
