Changelog for bash-doc-4.4-lp150.7.3.noarch.rpm :

* Wed Apr 18 2018 wernerAATTsuse.de- Add patch bash-4.4-wait-sigint-handler.patch to fix bug bsc#1086247 that is repeating self inserting trap due external command in the trap.
* Tue Feb 27 2018 wernerAATTsuse.de- Create readline-devel-static package to re-enable static libraries again (boo#1082913)
* Thu Feb 22 2018 fvogtAATTsuse.com- Use %license (boo#1082318)
* Tue Feb 06 2018 avindraAATTopensuse.org- Add patch 19 to bash-4.4-patches.tar.bz2
* With certain values for PS1, especially those that wrap onto three or more lines, readline will miscalculate the number of invisible characters, leading to crashes and core dumps.
* Tue Jan 30 2018 avindraAATTopensuse.org- Add patches 13-18 to bash-4.4-patches.tar.bz2
* 13: If a here-document contains a command substitution, the command substitution can get access to the file descriptor used to write the here-document.
* 14: Under some circumstances, functions that return via the `return\' builtin do not clean up memory they allocated to keep track of FIFOs.
* 15: Process substitution can leak internal quoting to the parser in the invoked subshell.
* 16: Bash can perform trap processing while reading command substitution output instead of waiting until the command completes.
* 17: There is a memory leak when `read -e\' is used to read a line using readline.
* 18: Under certain circumstances (e.g., reading from /dev/zero), read(2) will not return -1 even when interrupted by a signal. The read builtin needs to check for signals in this case.- partial cleanup with spec-cleaner
* Wed Jan 24 2018 wernerAATTsuse.de- Modify patch bash-4.3-pathtemp.patch to avoid crash at full file system (boo#1076909)
* Fri Dec 08 2017 wernerAATTsuse.de- Enable multibyte characters by default
* Mon Sep 25 2017 wernerAATTsuse.de- Modify patch bash-4.4.dif to let bashline.h install as well as this header file is included by general.h due to the same patch (boo#1060069)
* Thu May 25 2017 bwiedemannAATTsuse.com- Make build reproducible in spite of profile based optimizations (boo#1040589)
* Wed May 24 2017 bwiedemannAATTsuse.com- Allow to disable do_profiling in builds (related to boo#1040589)
* Wed Apr 26 2017 wernerAATTsuse.de- Simplify patch readline-5.2-conf.patch
* Tue Apr 25 2017 wernerAATTsuse.de- Do not throw info and manual pages away
* Fri Feb 17 2017 wernerAATTsuse.de- Remove bash-4.0-async-bnc523667.dif as this one is fixed (and was disabled and nobody had reported trouble)
* Mon Jan 30 2017 wernerAATTsuse.de- Add upstream patch readline70-002 which replace old one There is a race condition in add_history() that can be triggered by a fatal signal arriving between the time the history length is updated and the time the history list update is completed. A later attempt to reference an invalid history entry can cause a crash.- Add upstream patch readline70-003 Readline-7.0 uses pselect(2) to allow readline to handle signals that do not interrupt read(2), such as SIGALRM, before reading another character. The signal mask used in the pselect call did not take into account signals the calling application blocked before calling readline().
* Fri Jan 27 2017 wernerAATTsuse.de- Add upstream patch bash44-006 Out-of-range negative offsets to popd can cause the shell to crash attempting to free an invalid memory block.- Remove patch popd-offset-overflow.patch to use bash44-006- Add upstream patch bash44-007 When performing filename completion, bash dequotes the directory name being completed, which can result in match failures and potential unwanted expansion.- Duplicate bash44-007 as readline70-002 as it seems to be missed- Add upstream patch bash44-008 Under certain circumstances, bash will evaluate arithmetic expressions as part of reading an expression token even when evaluation is suppressed. This happens while evaluating a conditional expression and skipping over the failed branch of the expression.- Add upstream patch bash44-009 There is a race condition in add_history() that can be triggered by a fatal signal arriving between the time the history length is updated and the time the history list update is completed. A later attempt to reference an invalid history entry can cause a crash.- Add upstream patch bash44-010 Depending on compiler optimizations and behavior, the `read\' builtin may not save partial input when a timeout occurs.- Add upstream patch bash44-011 Subshells begun to run command and process substitutions may attempt to set the terminal\'s process group to an incorrect value if they receive a fatal signal. This depends on the behavior of the process that starts the shell.- Add upstream patch bash44-012 When -N is used, the input is not supposed to be split using $IFS, but leading and trailing IFS whitespace was still removed.
* Thu Jan 19 2017 wernerAATTsuse.de- Remove -L option on screen call dues API change, now we depend on environment variables only.
* Fri Dec 09 2016 mliskaAATTsuse.cz- Enable -fprofile-correction to cover misleading profile created due to terminating_signal which does not return.
* Mon Nov 28 2016 wernerAATTsuse.de- Add upstream patch popd-offset-overflow.patch to fix boo#1010845 CVE-2016-9401: bash: popd controlled free (Segmentation fault) Remark: this is a simple Segmentation fault, no security risk
* Thu Nov 17 2016 wernerAATTsuse.de- Add upstream patch bash44-001 Bash-4.4 changed the way the history list is initially allocated to reduce the number of reallocations and copies. Users who set HISTSIZE to a very large number to essentially unlimit the size of the history list will get memory allocation errors- Add upstream patch bash44-002 Bash-4.4 warns when discarding NUL bytes in command substitution output instead of silently dropping them. This patch changes the warnings from one per NUL byte encountered to one warning per command substitution.- Drop no-null-warning.patch as bash44-002 is official replacement- Add upstream patch bash44-003 Specially-crafted input, in this case an incomplete pathname expansion bracket expression containing an invalid collating symbol, can cause the shell to crash.- Add upstream patch bash44-004 There is a race condition that can result in bash referencing freed memory when freeing data associated with the last process substitution.- Add upstream patch bash44-005 Under certain circumstances, a simple command is optimized to eliminate a fork, resulting in an EXIT trap not being executed. (boo#1008459)- Add upstream patch readline70-001 Readline-7.0 changed the way the history list is initially allocated to reduce the number of reallocations and copies. Users who set the readline history-size variable to a very large number to essentially unlimit the size of the history list will get memory allocation errors
* Mon Oct 24 2016 schwabAATTsuse.de- no-null-warning.patch: Don\'t warn about null bytes in command substitution
* Tue Oct 04 2016 wernerAATTsuse.de- Avoid confusing library path
* Fri Sep 16 2016 wernerAATTsuse.de- Update bash 4.4 final
* Latest bug fixes since 4.4 rc2- Update readline 7.0 final
* Latest bug fixes since 7.0 rc2
* New application-callable function: rl_pending_signal(): returns the signal number of any signal readline has caught but not yet handled.
* New application-settable variable: rl_persistent_signal_handlers: if set to a non-zero value, readline will enable the readline-6.2 signal handler behavior in callback mode: handlers are installed when rl_callback_handler_install is called and removed removed when a complete line has been read.- Drop patch bash-4.3-async-bnc971410.dif as this one is part of 4.4- Drop patch bash-3.2-longjmp.dif as now long time be fixed- Drop patch bash-4.3-headers.dif as loadables now simply work- Drop readline-6.1-wrap.patch as this seems to be fixed- Disable patch bash-4.0-async-bnc523667.dif for now as it seems to be fixed in an other way
* Wed Sep 14 2016 wernerAATTsuse.de- Update bash 4.4 rc2 -- Bugfixes- Update readline 7.0 rc2 -- Bugfixes
* Mon Aug 01 2016 wernerAATTsuse.de- Make clear that the files /etc/profile as well as /etc/bash.bashrc may source other files as well even if the bash does not. Therefore modify patch bash-4.1-bash.bashrc.dif (bsc#959755)
* Thu Jul 14 2016 wernerAATTsuse.de- Update bash 4.4 beta 2
* Value conversions (arithmetic expansions, case modification, etc.) now happen when assigning elements of an array using compound assignment.
* There is a new option settable in config-top.h that makes multiple directory arguments to `cd\' a fatal error.
* Bash now uses mktemp() when creating internal temporary files; it produces a warning at build time on many Linux systems.- Update to readline library 7.0 beta 2 (not enabled as not standalone)
* The default binding for ^W in vi mode now uses word boundaries specified by Posix (vi-unix-word-rubout is bindable command name).
* rl_clear_visible_line: new application-callable function; clears all screen lines occupied by the current visible readline line.
* rl_tty_set_echoing: application-callable function that controls whether or not readline thinks it is echoing terminal output.
* Handle >| and strings of digits preceding and following redirection specifications as single tokens when tokenizing the line for history expansion.
* Fixed a bug with displaying completions when the prefix display length is greater than the length of the completions to be displayed.
* The :p history modifier now applies to the entire line, so any expansion specifying :p causes the line to be printed instead of expanded.
* Tue Mar 08 2016 wernerAATTsuse.de- Update bash 4.4 release candidate 1
* There is now a settable configuration #define that will cause the shell to exit if the shell is running setuid without the -p option and setuid to the real uid fails.
* Command and process substitutions now turn off the `-v\' option when executing, as other shells seem to do.
* The default value for the `checkhash\' shell option may now be set at compile time with a #define.
* The `mapfile\' builtin now has a -d option to use an arbitrary character as the record delimiter, and a -t option to strip the delimiter as supplied with -d.
* The maximum number of nested recursive calls to `eval\' is now settable in config-top.h; the default is no limit.
* The `-p\' option to declare and similar builtins will display attributes for named variables even when those variables have not been assigned values (which are technically unset).
* The maximum number of nested recursive calls to `source\' is now settable in config-top.h; the default is no limit.
* All builtin commands recognize the `--help\' option and print a usage summary.
* Bash does not allow function names containing `/\' and `=\' to be exported.
* The `ulimit\' builtin has new -k (kqueues) and -P (pseudoterminals) options.
* The shell now allows `time ; othercommand\' to time null commands.
* There is a new `--enable-function-import\' configuration option to allow importing shell functions from the environment; import is enabled by default.
* `printf -v var \"\"\' will now set `var\' to the empty string, as if `var=\"\"\' had been executed.
* GLOBIGNORE, the pattern substitution word expansion, and programmable completion match filtering now honor the value of the `nocasematch\' option.
* There is a new ${parameterAATTspec} family of operators to transform the value of `parameter\'.
* Bash no longer attempts to perform compound assignment if a variable on the rhs of an assignment statement argument to `declare\' has the form of a compound assignment (e.g., w=\'(word)\' ; declare foo=$w); compound assignments are accepted if the variable was already declared as an array, but with a warning.
* The declare builtin no longer displays array variables using the compound assignment syntax with quotes; that will generate warnings when re-used as input, and isn\'t necessary.
* Executing the rhs of && and || will no longer cause the shell to fork if it\'s not necessary.
* The `local\' builtin takes a new argument: `-\', which will cause it to save and the single-letter shell options and restore their previous values at function return.
* `complete\' and `compgen\' have a new `-o nosort\' option, which forces readline to not sort the completion matches.
* Bash now allows waiting for the most recent process substitution, since it appears as $!.
* The `unset\' builtin now unsets a scalar variable if it is subscripted with a `0\', analogous to the ${var[0]} expansion.
* `set -i\' is no longer valid, as in other shells.
* BASH_SUBSHELL is now updated for process substitution and group commands in pipelines, and is available with the same value when running any exit trap.
* Bash now checks $INSIDE_EMACS as well as $EMACS when deciding whether or not bash is being run in a GNU Emacs shell window.
* Bash now treats SIGINT received when running a non-builtin command in a loop the way it has traditionally treated running a builtin command: running any trap handler and breaking out of the loop.
* New variable: EXECIGNORE; a colon-separate list of patterns that will cause matching filenames to be ignored when searching for commands.
* Aliases whose value ends in a shell metacharacter now expand in a way to allow them to be `pasted\' to the next token, which can potentially change the meaning of a command (e.g., turning `&\' into `&&\').
* `make install\' now installs the example loadable builtins and a set of bash headers to use when developing new loadable builtins.
* `enable -f\' now attempts to call functions named BUILTIN_builtin_load when loading BUILTIN, and BUILTIN_builtin_unload when deleting it. This allows loadable builtins to run initialization and cleanup code.
* There is a new BASH_LOADABLES_PATH variable containing a list of directories where the `enable -f\' command looks for shared objects containing loadable builtins.
* The `complete_fullquote\' option to `shopt\' changes filename completion to quote all shell metacharacters in filenames and directory names.
* The `kill\' builtin now has a `-L\' option, equivalent to `-l\', for compatibility with Linux standalone versions of kill.
* BASH_COMPAT and FUNCNEST can be inherited and set from the shell\'s initial environment.
* inherit_errexit: a new `shopt\' option that, when set, causes command substitutions to inherit the -e option. By default, those subshells disable - e. It\'s enabled as part of turning on posix mode.
* New prompt string: PS0. Expanded and displayed by interactive shells after reading a complete command but before executing it.
* Interactive shells now behave as if SIGTSTP/SIGTTIN/SIGTTOU are set to SIG_DFL when the shell is started, so they are set to SIG_DFL in child processes.
* Posix-mode shells now allow double quotes to quote the history expansion character.
* OLDPWD can be inherited from the environment if it names a directory.
* Shells running as root no longer inherit PS4 from the environment, closing a security hole involving PS4 expansion performing command substitution.
* If executing an implicit `cd\' when the `autocd\' option is set, bash will now invoke a function named `cd\' if one exists before executing the `cd\' builtin.- Update to readline library 7.0 release candidate 1
* The history truncation code now uses the same error recovery mechansim as the history writing code, and restores the old version of the history file on error. The error recovery mechanism handles symlinked history files.
* There is a new bindable variable, `enable-bracketed-paste\', which enables support for a terminal\'s bracketed paste mode.
* The editing mode indicators can now be strings and are user-settable (new `emacs-mode-string\', `vi-cmd-mode-string\' and `vi-ins-mode-string\' variables). Mode strings can contain invisible character sequences. Setting mode strings to null strings restores the defaults.
* Prompt expansion adds the mode string to the last line of a multi-line prompt (one with embedded newlines).
* There is a new bindable variable, `colored-completion-prefix\', which, if set, causes the common prefix of a set of possible completions to be displayed in color.
* There is a new bindable command `vi-yank-pop\', a vi-mode version of emacs- mode yank-pop.
* The redisplay code underwent several efficiency improvements for multibyte locales.
* The insert-char function attempts to batch-insert all pending typeahead that maps to self-insert, as long as it is coming from the terminal.
* rl_callback_sigcleanup: a new application function that can clean up and unset any state set by readline\'s callback mode. Intended to be used after a signal.
* If an incremental search string has its last character removed with DEL, the resulting empty search string no longer matches the previous line.
* If readline reads a history file that begins with `#\' (or the value of the history comment character) and has enabled history timestamps, the history entries are assumed to be delimited by timestamps. This allows multi-line history entries.
* Readline now throws an error if it parses a key binding without a terminating `:\' or whitespace.- Remove patches which are upstream solved bash-3.2-longjmp.dif bash-4.3-headers.dif readline-6.1-wrap.patch- Rename patches bash-4.3.dif become bash-4.4.dif readline-6.3.dif become readline-7.0.dif- Refresh other patches as well
* Mon Oct 19 2015 wernerAATTsuse.de- Define the USE_MKTEMP and USE_MKSTEMP cpp macros as the implementation is already there.- Add patch bash-4.3-pathtemp.patch to allow root to clear the file systems. Otherwise the completion does not work if /tmp if full (ENOSPC for here documents)
* Fri Oct 16 2015 wernerAATTsuse.de- Remove --hash-size options as there is no any change in the final binary nor library anymore
* Mon Aug 31 2015 wernerAATTsuse.de- Add upstream patch bash43-039 Using the output of `declare -p\' when run in a function can result in variables that are invisible to `declare -p\'. This problem occurs when an assignment builtin such as `declare\' receives a quoted compound array assignment as one of its arguments.- Add upstream patch bash43-040 There is a memory leak that occurs when bash expands an array reference on the rhs of an assignment statement.- Add upstream patch bash43-041 There are several out-of-bounds read errors that occur when completing command lines where assignment statements appear before the command name. The first two appear only when programmable completion is enabled; the last one only happens when listing possible completions.- Add upstream patch bash43-042 There is a problem when parsing command substitutions containing `case\' commands within pipelines that causes the parser to not correctly identify the end of the command substitution.
* Wed Jul 01 2015 cooloAATTsuse.com- add bash-4.3-perl522.patch to fix texi2html for perl 5.22 (defined(AATTarray) has been deprecated since at least 2012)
* Thu May 28 2015 wernerAATTsuse.de- Add upstream patch bash43-034 If neither the -f nor -v options is supplied to unset, and a name argument is found to be a function and unset, subsequent name arguments are not treated as variables before attempting to unset a function by that name.- Add upstream patch bash43-035 A locale with a long name can trigger a buffer overflow and core dump. This applies on systems that do not have locale_charset in libc, are not using GNU libiconv, and are not using the libintl that ships with bash in lib/intl.- Add upstream patch bash43-036 When evaluating and setting integer variables, and the assignment fails to create a variable (for example, when performing an operation on an array variable with an invalid subscript), bash attempts to dereference a null pointer, causing a segmentation violation.- Add upstream patch bash43-037 If an associative array uses `AATT\' or `
*\' as a subscript, `declare -p\' produces output that cannot be reused as input.- Add upstream patch bash43-038 There are a number of instances where `time\' is not recognized as a reserved word when the shell grammar says it should be.
* Mon May 18 2015 meissnerAATTsuse.com- move info deletion to %preun sections
* Wed Mar 04 2015 jdelvareAATTsuse.de- bash-4.3-loadables.dif: One more warning fixed, in examples/loadables/logname.c.- bash-4.3-loadables.dif: Reverted one warning fix, which was introducing another warning and possibly a bug.
* Wed Mar 04 2015 jdelvareAATTsuse.de- bash-4.3-loadables.dif: Split changes to shell.h to a separate patch \"bash-4.3-include-unistd.dif\", as the loadables build just fine without these changes.- bash-4.3-loadables.dif: Drop all header file inclusion fixups, upstream fixed the problem differently 5 years ago.
* Wed Feb 18 2015 wernerAATTsuse.de- Do not restart all signal handlers for bash 4.3 as this breaks trap handler in subshells waotiug for a process
* Fri Jan 16 2015 wernerAATTsuse.de- Remove -DMUST_UNBLOCK_CHLD(=1) as this breaks waitchild(2) on linux
* Fri Jan 09 2015 wernerAATTsuse.de- Add upstream patch bash43-031 The new nameref assignment functionality introduced in bash-4.3 did not perform enough validation on the variable value and would create variables with invalid names.- Add upstream patch bash43-032 When bash is running in Posix mode, it allows signals -- including SIGCHLD -- to interrupt the `wait\' builtin, as Posix requires. However, the interrupt causes bash to not run a SIGCHLD trap for all exited children. This patch fixes the issue and restores the documented behavior in Posix mode.- Add upstream patch bash43-033 Bash does not clean up the terminal state in all cases where bash or readline modifies it and bash is subsequently terminated by a fatal signal. This happens when the `read\' builtin modifies the terminal settings, both when readline is active and when it is not. It occurs most often when a script installs a trap that exits on a signal without re-sending the signal to itself.
* Wed Dec 03 2014 jdelvareAATTsuse.de- Fix the sed command that fixes up the patch headers. It was printing a duplicate header line, which suprisingly did not confuse patch, but could in the future.- Fix all patches that had the duplicate header line issue.
* Tue Nov 04 2014 wernerAATTsuse.de- Use tail command to follow run-tests instead of a simpe cat command

* Mon Oct 06 2014 wernerAATTsuse.de- Add upstream patches bash43-030 which fixes CVE-2014-6278 bash43-029 which fixes CVE-2014-6277 bash43-028 which fixes CVE-2014-7186/CVE-2014-7187
* Tue Sep 30 2014 wernerAATTsuse.de- Add patch bash-4.2-extra-import-func.patch which is based on the BSD patch of Christos. As further enhancements the option import-functions is mentioned in the manual page and a shopt switch is added to enable and disable import-functions on the fly- Rename bash-4.2-extra-import-func.patch to bash-4.3-extra-import-func.patch
* Mon Sep 29 2014 wernerAATTsuse.de- Add upstream patches bash43-027 which fixed bsc#898604 bash43-026 which fixes CVE-2014-7169 and bsc#898346 bash43-025 which replaces bash-4.3-CVE-2014-6271.patch and fixes bnc#896776- Remove patch bash-4.3-CVE-2014-6271.patch due patch bash43-027- Add patch bash-4.2-CVE-2014-7187.patch for bsc#898603, CVE-2014-7186, CVE-2014-7187: bad handling of HERE documents and for loop issue
* Fri Sep 26 2014 wernerAATTsuse.de- Use a version linker script for libreadline 6.3 as there are new symbols in this 6.3 version like the rl_executing_keyseq and those are used by the new bash 4.3
* Thu Sep 18 2014 wernerAATTsuse.de- Add bash-4.3-CVE-2014-6271.patch to fix CVE-2014-6271, the unexpected code execution with environment variables (bnc#896776)
* Tue Aug 19 2014 wernerAATTsuse.de- Update to bash 4.3 with patch level 24
* The -t timeout option to `read\' does not work when the -e option is used
* When PS2 contains a command substitution, here-documents entered in an interactive shell can sometimes cause a segmentation fault.
* When the readline `revert-all-at-newline\' option is set, pressing newline when the current line is one retrieved from history results in a double free and a segmentation fault.
* Using nested pipelines within loops with the `lastpipe\' option set can result in a segmentation fault.
* Bash does not correctly parse process substitution constructs that contain unbalanced parentheses as part of the contained command.
* Indirect variable references do not work correctly if the reference variable expands to an array reference using a subscript other than 0
* Sun Jun 29 2014 schwabAATTlinux-m68k.org- Don\'t use outdated C standard
* Tue May 20 2014 wernerAATTsuse.de- Update to bash 4.3 with patch level 18
* When a SIGCHLD trap runs a command containing a shell builtin while a script is running `wait\' to wait for all running children to complete, the SIGCHLD trap will not be run once for each child that terminates.
* Using reverse-i-search when horizontal scrolling is enabled doe not redisplay the entire line containing the successful search results.
* Under certain circumstances, $AATT is expanded incorrectly in contexts where word splitting is not performed.
* When completing directory names, the directory name is dequoted twice. This causes problems for directories with single and double quotes in their names.
* An extended glob pattern containing a slash (`/\') causes the globbing code to misinterpret it as a directory separator.
* The code that creates local variables should not clear the `invisible\' attribute when returning an existing local variable. Let the code that actually assigns a value clear it.
* When assigning an array variable using the compound assignment syntax, but using `declare\' with the rhs of the compound assignment quoted, the shell did not mark the variable as visible after successfully performing the assignment.- Update to readline library 6.3 with patch level 6
* Using reverse-i-search when horizontal scrolling is enabled does not redisplay the entire line containing the successful search results.- Remove readline-horizontal-redisplay.patch as now upstream- Rename readline-6.2.dif to readline-6.3.dif and bash-4.2.dif to bash-4.3.dif
* Wed Apr 30 2014 wernerAATTsuse.de- Add readline-horizontal-redisplay.patch from upstream as a temporary fix for failing incremental search in horizontal-scroll-mode
* Thu Apr 17 2014 wernerAATTsuse.de- Make patch command work on older products
* Thu Apr 17 2014 wernerAATTsuse.de- Update to bash 4.3 with patch level 11
* The `helptopic\' completion action now maps to all the help topics, not just the shell builtins.
* The `help\' builtin no longer does prefix substring matching first, so `help read\' does not match `readonly\', but will do it if exact string matching fails.
* The shell can be compiled to not display a message about processes that terminate due to SIGTERM.
* Non-interactive shells now react to the setting of checkwinsize and set LINES and COLUMNS after a foreground job exits.
* There is a new shell option, `globasciiranges\', which, when set to on, forces globbing range comparisons to use character ordering as if they were run in the C locale.
* There is a new shell option, `direxpand\', which makes filename completion expand variables in directory names in the way bash-4.1 did.
* In Posix mode, the `command\' builtin does not change whether or not a builtin it shadows is treated as an assignment builtin.
* The `return\' and `exit\' builtins accept negative exit status arguments.
* The word completion code checks whether or not a filename containing a shell variable expands to a directory name and appends `/\' to the word as appropriate. The same code expands shell variables in command names when performing command completion.
* In Posix mode, it is now an error to attempt to define a shell function with the same name as a Posix special builtin.
* When compiled for strict Posix conformance, history expansion is disabled by default.
* The history expansion character (!) does not cause history expansion when followed by the closing quote in a double-quoted string.
* `complete\' and its siblings compgen/compopt now takes a new `-o noquote\' option to inhibit quoting of the completions.
* Setting HISTSIZE to a value less than zero causes the history list to be unlimited (setting it 0 zero disables the history list).
* Setting HISTFILESIZE to a value less than zero causes the history file size to be unlimited (setting it to 0 causes the history file to be truncated to zero size).
* The `read\' builtin now skips NUL bytes in the input.
* There is a new `bind -X\' option to print all key sequences bound to Unix commands.
* When in Posix mode, `read\' is interruptible by a trapped signal. After running the trap handler, read returns 128+signal and throws away any partially-read input.
* The command completion code skips whitespace and assignment statements before looking for the command name word to be completed.
* The build process has a new mechanism for constructing separate help files that better reflects the current set of compilation options.
* The -nt and -ot options to test now work with files with nanosecond timestamp resolution.
* The shell saves the command history in any shell for which history is enabled and HISTFILE is set, not just interactive shells.
* The shell has `nameref\' variables and new -n(/+n) options to declare and unset to use them, and a `test -R\' option to test for them.
* The shell now allows assigning, referencing, and unsetting elements of indexed arrays using negative subscripts (a[-1]=2, echo ${a[-1]}) which count back from the last element of the array.
* The {x}* There is a new CHILD_MAX special shell variable; its value controls the number of exited child statues the shell remembers.
* There is a new configuration option (--enable-direxpand-default) that causes the `direxpand\' shell option to be enabled by default.
* Bash does not do anything special to ensure that the file descriptor assigned to X in {x}* The `wait\' builtin has a new `-n\' option to wait for the next child to change status.
* The `printf\' %(...)T format specifier now uses the current time if no argument is supplied.
* There is a new variable, BASH_COMPAT, that controls the current shell compatibility level.
* The `popd\' builtin now treats additional arguments as errors.
* The brace expansion code now treats a failed sequence expansion as a simple string and will continue to expand brace terms in the remainder of the word.
* Shells started to run process substitutions now run any trap set on EXIT.
* The fc builtin now interprets -0 as the current command line.
* Completing directory names containing shell variables now adds a trailing slash if the expanded result is a directory.
* `cd\' has a new `-AATT\' option to browse a file\'s extended attributes on systems that support O_XATTR.
* The test/[/[[ `-v variable\' binary operator now understands array references.- Update to readline library 6.3 with patch level 5
* Readline is now more responsive to SIGHUP and other fatal signals when reading input from the terminal or performing word completion but no longer attempts to run any not-allowable functions from a signal handler context.
* There are new bindable commands to search the history for the string of characters between the beginning of the line and the point (history-substring-search-forward, history-substring-search-backward)
* Readline allows quoted strings as the values of variables when setting them with `set\'. As a side effect, trailing spaces and tabs are ignored when setting a string variable\'s value.
* The history library creates a backup of the history file when writing it and restores the backup on a write error.
* New application-settable variable: rl_filename_stat_hook: a function called with a filename before using it in a call to stat(2). Bash uses it to expand shell variables so things like $HOME/Downloads have a slash appended.
* New bindable function `print-last-kbd-macro\', prints the most-recently- defined keyboard macro in a reusable format.
* New user-settable variable `colored-stats\', enables use of colored text to denote file types when displaying possible completions (colored analog of visible-stats).
* New user-settable variable `keyseq-timout\', acts as an inter-character timeout when reading input or incremental search strings.
* New application-callable function: rl_clear_history. Clears the history list and frees all readline-associated private data.
* New user-settable variable, show-mode-in-prompt, adds a characters to the beginning of the prompt indicating the current editing mode.
* New application-settable variable: rl_input_available_hook; function to be called when readline detects there is data available on its input file descriptor.
* Readline calls an application-set event hook (rl_event_hook) after it gets a signal while reading input (read returns -1/EINTR but readline does not handle the signal immediately) to allow the application to handle or otherwise note it.
* If the user-settable variable `history-size\' is set to a value less than 0, the history list size is unlimited.
* New application-settable variable: rl_signal_event_hook; function that is called when readline is reading terminal input and read(2) is interrupted by a signal. Currently not called for SIGHUP or SIGTERM.
* rl_change_environment: new application-settable variable that controls whether or not Readline modifies the environment (currently readline modifies only LINES and COLUMNS).- Removed patches audit-rl-patch and audit-patch which are now upstream readline-6.2-msgdynamic.patch which is upstream bash-4.2-nsec.dif which is upstream config-guess-sub-update.patch which is upstream- Modify patches bash-4.2-2.4.4.patch becomes bash-4.3-2.4.4.patch bash-3.0-decl.patch becomes bash-4.3-decl.patch bash-4.0-loadables.dif becomes bash-4.3-loadables.dif bash-4.2-sigrestart.patch becomes bash-4.3-sigrestart.patch bash-4.0-headers.dif becomes bash-4.3-headers.dif bash-4.2-winch.dif becomes bash-4.3-winch.dif readline-4.3-input.dif becomes readline-6.3-input.dif readline-6.2-destdir.patch becomes readline-6.3-destdir.patch readline-6.2-rltrace.patch becomes readline-6.3-rltrace.patch
* Tue Apr 15 2014 wernerAATTsuse.de- Add bash upstream patch 47 to fix a problem where the function that shortens pathnames for $PS1 according to the value of $PROMPT_DIRTRIM uses memcpy on potentially-overlapping regions of memory, when it should use memmove. The result is garbled pathnames in prompt strings.- Remove bash-4.2-prompt-dirtrim.patch as this was the original report of above.
* Tue Apr 01 2014 wernerAATTsuse.de- Add bash upstream patch 46 to fix a problem introduced by patch 32 a problem with \"$AATT\" and arrays expanding empty positional parameters or array elements when using substring expansion, pattern substitution, or case modfication. The empty parameters or array elements are removed instead of expanding to empty strings (\"\").- Add readline upstream patch 5: The readline shared library helper script needs to be updated for Mac OS X 10.9
* Tue Mar 18 2014 wernerAATTsuse.de- CVE-2014-2524: bash,readline: temporary file misuse in _rl_tropen (bnc#868822) Even if used only by developers to debug readline library do not open temporary files from public location without O_EXCL

* When SIGCHLD is trapped, and a SIGCHLD trap handler runs when a pending `read -t\' invocation times out and generates SIGALRM, bash can crash with a segmentation fault.
* When converting a multibyte string to a wide character string as part of pattern matching, bash does not handle the end of the string correctly, causing the search for the NUL to go beyond the end of the string and reference random memory. Depending on the contents of that memory, bash can produce errors or crash.
* The <&n- and >&n- redirections, which move one file descriptor to another, leave the file descriptor closed when applied to builtins or compound commands.- Use screen to provide a controlling terminal for running the test suite

* Mon Jul 09 2012 wernerAATTsuse.de- Update bash 4.2 to patch level 36
* Patch 25: When used in a shell function, `declare -g -a array=(compound assignment)\' creates a local variable instead of a global one.
* Patch 26: The `lastpipe\' option does not behave correctly on machines where the open file limit is less than 256.
* Patch 27: When the `extglob\' shell option is enabled, pattern substitution does not work correctly in the presence of multibyte characters.
* Patch 28: When using a word expansion for which the right hand side is evaluated, certain expansions of quoted null strings include spurious ^? characters.
* Patch 29: Bash-4.2 tries to leave completed directory names as the user typed them, without expanding them to a full pathname. One effect of this is that shell variables used in pathnames being completed (e.g., $HOME) are left unchanged, but the `$\' is quoted by readline because it is a special character to the shell.
* Patch 30: When attempting to glob strings in a multibyte locale, and those strings contain invalid multibyte characters that cause mbsnrtowcs to return 0, the globbing code loops infinitely.
* Patch 31: A change between bash-4.1 and bash-4.2 to prevent the readline input hook from being called too frequently had the side effect of causing delays when reading pasted input on systems such as Mac OS X. This patch fixes those delays while retaining the bash-4.2 behavior.
* Patch 32: Bash-4.2 has problems with DEL characters in the expanded value of variables used in the same quoted string as variables that expand to nothing.
* Patch 33: Bash uses a static buffer when expanding the /dev/fd prefix for the test and conditional commands, among other uses, when it should use a dynamic buffer to avoid buffer overflow.
* Patch 34: In bash-4.2, the history code would inappropriately add a semicolon to multi-line compound array assignments when adding them to the history.
* Patch 35: When given a number of lines to read, `mapfile -n lines\' reads one too many.
* Patch 36: Bash-4.2 produces incorrect word splitting results when expanding double-quoted $AATT in the same string as and adjacent to other variable expansions. The $AATT should be split, the other expansions should not.- Add patch to avoid double free or corruption due expanding number sequence with huge numbers. Patch will go upstream (bnc#763591)
* Tue Jun 26 2012 cfarrellAATTsuse.com- license update: GPL-3.0+ Upstream declares the bash license to be GPL-3.0+ - not GPL-2.0+

* Mon Jan 17 2011 wernerAATTsuse.de- Update to bash 4.2 rc1
* `exec -a foo\' now sets $0 to `foo\' in an executable shell script without a leading #!.
* Subshells begun to execute command substitutions or run shell functions or builtins in subshells do not reset trap strings until a new trap is specified. This allows $(trap) to display the caller\'s traps and the trap strings to persist until a new trap is set.
* `trap -p\' will now show signals ignored at shell startup, though their disposition still cannot be modified.
* $\'...\', echo, and printf understand \\uXXXX and \\UXXXXXXXX escape sequences.
* declare/typeset has a new `-g\' option, which creates variables in the global scope even when run in a shell function.
* test/[/[[ have a new -v variable unary operator, which returns success if `variable\' has been set.
* Posix parsing changes to allow `! time command\' and multiple consecutive instances of `!\' (which toggle) and `time\' (which have no cumulative effect).
* Posix change to allow `time\' as a command by itself to print the elapsed user, system, and real times for the shell and its children.
* $((...)) is always parsed as an arithmetic expansion first, instead of as a potential nested command substitution, as Posix requires.
* A new FUNCNEST variable to allow the user to control the maximum shell function nesting (recursive execution) level.
* The mapfile builtin now supplies a third argument to the callback command: the line about to be assigned to the supplied array index.
* The printf builtin has a new %(fmt)T specifier, which allows time values to use strftime-like formatting.
* There is a new `compat41\' shell option.
* The cd builtin has a new Posix-mandated `-e\' option.
* Negative subscripts to indexed arrays, previously errors, now are treated as offsets from the maximum assigned index + 1.
* Negative length specifications in the ${var:offset:length} expansion, previously errors, are now treated as offsets from the end of the variable.
* Parsing change to allow `time -p --\'.
* Posix-mode parsing change to not recognize `time\' as a keyword if the following token begins with a `-\'. This means no more Posix-mode `time -p\'. Posix interpretation 267.
* There is a new `lastpipe\' shell option that runs the last command of a pipeline in the current shell context. The lastpipe option has no effect if job control is enabled.
* History expansion no longer expands the `$!\' variable expansion.
* Posix mode shells no longer exit if a variable assignment error occurs with an assignment preceding a command that is not a special builtin.
* History expansion no longer expands the `$!\' variable expansion.
* Posix mode shells no longer exit if a variable assignment error occurs with an assignment preceding a command that is not a special builtin.
* Non-interactive mode shells exit if -u is enabled and an attempt is made to use an unset variable with the % or # expansions, the `//\', `^\', or `,\' expansions, or the parameter length expansion.
* Posix-mode shells use the argument passed to `.\' as-is if a $PATH search fails, effectively searching the current directory. Posix-2008 change.- Update to readline 6.2 rc1
* The history library does not try to write the history filename in the current directory if $HOME is unset. This closes a potential security problem if the application does not specify a history filename.
* New bindable variable `completion-display-width\' to set the number of columns used when displaying completions.
* New bindable variable `completion-case-map\' to cause case-insensitive completion to treat `-\' and `_\' as identical.
* There are new bindable vi-mode command names to avoid readline\'s case- insensitive matching not allowing them to be bound separately.
* New bindable variable `menu-complete-display-prefix\' causes the menu completion code to display the common prefix of the possible completions before cycling through the list, instead of after.
* Mon Oct 18 2010 jslabyAATTsuse.de- fix czech message
* Thu Oct 14 2010 wernerAATTsuse.de- Update bash 4.1 to patch level 9
* When declaring an associative array and implicitly assigning a value to element \"0\", bash does not correctly allocate memory, leading to a segmentation violation when that element or the array itself is unset.
* An arriving SIGCHLD will interrupt `slow\' system calls such as write(2) to or read(2) from a terminal. This results in an error message and truncated input or output.
* Fri Sep 03 2010 cristian.rodriguezAATTopensuse.org- builtin \"man2html\"generates html manual with a timestamp that causes the package to be published over and over again.
* Mon Aug 16 2010 wernerAATTsuse.de- A modified version of the pipe patch which should handle the PIPESTATUS array
* Fri Aug 13 2010 wernerAATTsuse.de- Disable the pipe patch from Thu Jun 24 10:40:09 CEST 2010 as this resets the PIPESTATUS array to the status of the forground process only
* Thu Jul 29 2010 wernerAATTsuse.de- Add fix from mailing list to avoid crash
* Mon Jul 19 2010 wernerAATTsuse.de- Comment out recommendation of bash-completion, as I\'d like no to see the bugs of bash-completion in my bugzilla
* Sat Jul 17 2010 cristian.rodriguezAATTopensuse.org- Do not package static libraries- Fix Recommends/Suggests
* Thu Jun 24 2010 wernerAATTsuse.de- Add fix from upstream: restore the parser state over changing readline editing mode otherwise e.g. set alias before the change are lost.
* Thu Jun 24 2010 wernerAATTsuse.de- Avoid running the last member of a pipe command sequence to run in its own subshell, this makes know lines like the simple echo 1 2 | read a b; echo $a $b work as expected by the users
* Tue May 25 2010 wernerAATTsuse.de- Update bash 4.1 to patch level 7
* Bash did not correctly print/reproduce here documents attached to commands inside compound commands such as for and while.
* A typo caused bash to not honor a precision specification in a printf format.
* Mon Apr 12 2010 wernerAATTsuse.de- Add fix for memory double free in array handling
* Tue Apr 06 2010 wernerAATTsuse.de- Update bash 4.1 to patch level 5 (related to bnc#522351)
* If command completion is attempted on a word with a quoted globbing character (e.g., `
*\' or `?\'), bash can reference a NULL pointer and dump core.
* When running in Posix mode and executing a shell function without local variables, bash will not propagate a variable in a special builtin\'s temporary environment to have global scope.
* When the `read\' builtin times out after the timeout specified with -t is exceeded, it does not reset the flags that tell signal handlers to process signals immediately instead of deferring their handling. This can result in unsafe functions being called from signal handlers, which can cause bash to hang or dump core.
* Tue Mar 09 2010 wernerAATTsuse.de- Add patch from bash-bug list to avoid crahs on some strange TAB completions
* Mon Mar 01 2010 roAATTsuse.de- fix warning no return statement in function returning non-void to fix build (in bashline.c)

* Mon Feb 15 2010 wernerAATTsuse.de- Update bash 4.1 to patch level 2
* Here-documents within $(...) command substitutions may once more be delimited by the closing right paren, instead of requiring a newline.
* Bash\'s file status checks (executable, readable, etc.) now take file system ACLs into account on file systems that support them.
* Bash now passes environment variables with names that are not valid shell variable names through into the environment passed to child processes.
* The `execute-unix-command\' readline function now attempts to clear and reuse the current line rather than move to a new one after the command executes.
* `printf -v\' can now assign values to array indices.
* New `complete -E\' and `compopt -E\' options that work on the \"empty\" completion: completion attempted on an empty command line.
* New complete/compgen/compopt -D option to define a `default\' completion: a completion to be invoked on command for which no completion has been defined. If this function returns 124, programmable completion is attempted again, allowing a user to dynamically build a set of completions as completion is attempted by having the default completion function install individual completion functions each time it is invoked.
* When displaying associative arrays, subscripts are now quoted.
* Changes to dabbrev-expand to make it more `emacs-like\': no space appended after matches, completions are not sorted, and most recent history entries are presented first.
* The [[ and (( commands are now subject to the setting of `set -e\' and the ERR trap.
* The source/. builtin now removes NUL bytes from the file before attempting to parse commands.
* There is a new configuration option (in config-top.h) that forces bash to forward all history entries to syslog.
* A new variable $BASHOPTS to export shell options settable using `shopt\' to child processes.
* There is a new confgure option that forces the extglob option to be enabled by default.
* New variable $BASH_XTRACEFD; when set to an integer bash will write xtrace output to that file descriptor.
* If the optional left-hand-side of a redirection is of the form {var}, the shell assigns the file descriptor used to $var or uses $var as the file descriptor to move or close, depending on the redirection operator.
* The < and > operators to the [[ conditional command now do string comparison according to the current locale if the compatibility level is greater than 40.
* Programmable completion now uses the completion for `b\' instead of `a\' when completion is attempted on a line like: a $(b c.
* Force extglob on temporarily when parsing the pattern argument to the == and != operators to the [[ command, for compatibility.
* Changed the behavior of interrupting the wait builtin when a SIGCHLD is received and a trap on SIGCHLD is set to be Posix-mode only.
* The read builtin has a new `-N nchars\' option, which reads exactly NCHARS characters, ignoring delimiters like newline.
* The mapfile/readarray builtin no longer stores the commands it invokes via callbacks in the history list.
* There is a new `compat40\' shopt option.- Update readline 6.1 to patch level 1
* New bindable function: menu-complete-backward.
* In the vi insertion keymap, C-n is now bound to menu-complete by default, and C-p to menu-complete-backward.
* When in vi command mode, repeatedly hitting ESC now does nothing, even when ESC introduces a bound key sequence. This is closer to how historical vi behaves.
* New bindable function: skip-csi-sequence. Can be used as a default to consume key sequences generated by keys like Home and End without having to bind all keys.
* New application-settable function: rl_filename_rewrite_hook. Can be used to rewite or modify filenames read from the file system before they are compared to the word to be completed.
* New bindable variable: skip-completed-text, active when completing in the middle of a word. If enabled, it means that characters in the completion that match characters in the remainder of the word are \"skipped\" rather than inserted into the line.
* The pre-readline-6.0 version of menu completion is available as \"old-menu-complete\" for users who do not like the readline-6.0 version.
* New bindable variable: echo-control-characters. If enabled, and the tty ECHOCTL bit is set, controls the echoing of characters corresponding to keyboard-generated signals.
* New bindable variable: enable-meta-key. Controls whether or not readline sends the smm/rmm sequences if the terminal indicates it has a meta key that enables eight-bit characters.
