Fedora Update Notification

Name        : mksh
Product     : Fedora 15
Version     : 40d
Release     : 1.fc15
URL         : http://www.mirbsd.de/mksh.htm
Summary     : MirBSD enhanced version of the Korn Shell
Description :
mksh is the MirBSD enhanced version of the Public Domain Korn shell (pdksh),
a bourne-compatible shell which is largely similar to the original AT&T Korn
shell. It includes bug fixes and feature improvements in order to produce a
modern, robust shell good for interactive and especially script use, being a
bourne shell replacement, pdksh successor and an alternative to the C shell.

Update Information:

mksh R40d is a must-have bugfix update:

  * New test.sh ‘-f’ option (same as ‘-C fastbox’)
  * Drop using set -o noglob inside pushd/popd/dirs
  * Use += more in dot.mkshrc and keep strings shorter
  * Correct interworking between local and set -A
  * Fix out-of-bounds memory access on strings of 32 KiB length
  * MKSH_DISABLE_DEPRECATED (for integrators)
  * test(1) built-in behaves exactly as POSIX says
  * Move compile-time assertions to Build.sh from misc.c#ifdef DEBUG
  * Invocation documentation is at the bottom of Build.sh
  * test.sh: verbosely look for perl(1) interpreter to use
  * New tests for integers (base 1‥36, base unspecified, base OOB)
  * Correct error paths for typeset -n global state
  * Deprecate interpreting "010" as octal number, will go
  * Improvements re. integer handling; more explicit manpage text
  * Do not use caddr_t on Linux, so dietlibc stops bitching
  * Catch division/modulo overflow 0x80000000/-1
  * Emacs mode ^O regression fix when the fetched lines are edited
