    The PCRE library has been updated to fix the security issues reported against it in previous Debian Security Advisories. This update ensures that kazehakase uses that supported library, and not its own embedded and insecure version.

    Debian Bug     : 464756
    
    Andrews Salomon reported that kazehakase, a GTK+-base web browser that
    allows pluggable rendering engines, contained an embedded copy of the
    PCRE library in its source tree which was compiled in and used in preference
    to the system-wide version of this library.
    
    The PCRE library has been updated to fix the security issues reported
    against it in previous Debian Security Advisories.  This update ensures that
    kazehakase  uses that supported library, and not its own embedded and
    insecure version.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
    0.4.2-1etch1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your kazehakase package.
