* bzip2recover: Fix use after free issue with outFile (CVE-2016-3189)
* Make sure nSelectors is not out of range (CVE-2019-12900)

+1.0.8 (13 Jul 19)
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+* Accept as many selectors as the file format allows.
+ This relaxes the fix for CVE-2019-12900 from 1.0.7
+ so that bzip2 allows decompression of bz2 files that
+ use (too) many selectors again.
+
+* Fix handling of large (> 4GB) files on Windows.
+
+* Cleanup of bzdiff and bzgrep scripts so they don't use
+ any bash extensions and handle multiple archives correctly.
+
+* There is now a bz2-files testsuite at
+ https://sourceware.org/git/bzip2-tests.git
