Fedora Update Notification
2014-07-03 23:38:43

Name        : zsh
Product     : Fedora 20
Version     : 5.0.5
Release     : 1.fc20
URL         : http://zsh.sourceforge.net/
Summary     : Powerful interactive shell
Description :
The zsh shell is a command interpreter usable as an interactive login
shell and as a shell script command processor.  Zsh resembles the ksh
shell (the Korn shell), but includes many enhancements.  Zsh supports
command line editing, built-in spelling correction, programmable
command completion, shell functions (with autoloading), a history
mechanism, and more.

Update Information:

This update brings the latest release of Zsh in version 5.0.5 to you. Please read the release notes at 

A detailed change log may be found here:


Please note this update will install the Zsh binary in /usr/bin now instead of /bin and accordingly will append /usr/bin/zsh to your /etc/shells file. Installing this update will not remove any reference to /bin/zsh from /etc/shells, you probably want to maintain /etc/shells yourself accordingly.
