Changelog for bash-devel-4.4-106.1.x86_64.rpm :
Tue Jan 30 13:00:00 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 13:00:00 2018 wernerAATTsuse.de

file system (boo#1076909)

Fri Dec 8 13:00:00 2017 wernerAATTsuse.de
- Enable multibyte characters by default

Mon Sep 25 14:00:00 2017 wernerAATTsuse.de

this header file is included by general.h due to the same patch
(boo#1060069)

Thu May 25 14:00:00 2017 bwiedemannAATTsuse.com
- Make build reproducible in spite of profile based optimizations (boo#1040589)

- Simplify patch readline-5.2-conf.patch

Tue Apr 25 14:00:00 2017 wernerAATTsuse.de
- Do not throw info and manual pages away

Fri Feb 17 13:00:00 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 13:00:00 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 13:00:00 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 13:00:00 2017 wernerAATTsuse.de
- Remove -L option on screen call dues API change, now we depend
on environment variables only.

Fri Dec 9 13:00:00 2016 mliskaAATTsuse.cz
- Enable -fprofile-correction to cover misleading profile created due
to terminating_signal which does not return.

Mon Nov 28 13:00:00 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 13:00:00 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 14:00:00 2016 schwabAATTsuse.de
- no-null-warning.patch: Don\'t warn about null bytes in command
substitution

Tue Oct 4 14:00:00 2016 wernerAATTsuse.de
- Avoid confusing library path

Fri Sep 16 14:00:00 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 14:00:00 2016 wernerAATTsuse.de
- Update bash 4.4 rc2 -- Bugfixes
- Update readline 7.0 rc2 -- Bugfixes

Mon Aug 1 14:00:00 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 14:00:00 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 8 13:00:00 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.

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 14:00:00 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 14:00:00 2015 wernerAATTsuse.de
- Remove --hash-size options as there is no any change in the final
binary nor library anymore

Mon Aug 31 14:00:00 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 1 14:00:00 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 14:00:00 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 14:00:00 2015 meissnerAATTsuse.com
- move info deletion to %preun sections

Wed Mar 4 13:00:00 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 4 13:00:00 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.

- Remove -DMUST_UNBLOCK_CHLD(=1) as this breaks waitchild(2) on linux

Fri Jan 9 13:00:00 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 3 13:00:00 2014 jdelvareAATTsuse.de
- Fix the sed command that fixes up the patch headers. It was

Tue Aug 19 14:00:00 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 14:00:00 2014 schwabAATTlinux-m68k.org
- Don\'t use outdated C standard

Tue May 20 14:00:00 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.

- 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} can use variables with special meanings to the shell (e.g., BASH_XTRACEFD).

* 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} completes.

* 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).

- Disable workaround for bnc#382214 due bnc#806628, let\'s see when

- Update bash 4.2 to patch level 45

* 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.

Mon Jul 9 14:00:00 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.

Mon Jan 17 13:00:00 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.

- Update bash 4.1 to patch level 9

* When declaring an associative array and implicitly assigning a

leading to a segmentation violation when that element or the

* 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.

Tue Apr 6 14:00:00 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.

- 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.
