Version 0.1.7 2013-10-10

  • bugfix: invalid comparison results for different-length strings
    es_strcmp, es_strcasecmp, es_strbufcmp, and es_strcasebufcmp returned incorrect results if the first string was smaller than the second. In that case, the first string was always assumed to be lexially lower than the second. If the second string was larger than the first, the same issue occured. This did not affect equal comparisons, but LT/GT checks lead to invalid result, with potentially harsh consequences (e.g. qsort() did not work properly). This bug is present for a very long time, potentially down to the initial implementation of libestr.
