Description

This release fixes a crash when finding a Unicode property for a character with a code point greater than 0x10ffff in UTF-32 library while UTF mode is disabled and JIT mode is enabled. It also fixes an incortect cast in UTF validation routine.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora update system website. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
