Announcement ID: SUSE-RU-2020:1266-1
Rating: moderate
References: #1170838
Affected Products:
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Module for Basesystem 15-SP1

An update that has one recommended fix can now be installed.


This update for jq fixes the following issues:
jq was updated to version 1.6:

  • Destructuring Alternation
  • many new builtins (see docs)
  • Add support for ASAN and UBSAN
  • Make it easier to use jq with shebangs
  • Add $ENV builtin variable to access environment
  • Add JQ_COLORS env var for configuring the output colors
  • change: Calling jq without a program argument now always assumes "." for the program, regardless of stdin/stdout
  • fix: Make sorting stable regardless of qsort.

  • Make jq depend on libjq1, so upgrading jq upgrades both
