+ One True Awk has been updated to the latest from upstream
+ (20210215). All the FreeBSD patches, but one, have now been
+ either up streamed or discarded. Notable changes include:
+ o Locale is no longer used for ranges
+ o Various bugs fixed
+ o Better compatibility with gawk and mawk
+
+ The one FreeBSD change, likely to be removed in FreeBSD 14, is that
+ we still allow hex numbers, prefixed with 0x, to be parsed and
+ interpreted as hex numbers while all other awks (including one
+ true awk now) interpret them as 0 in line with awk's historic
+ behavior.
