-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Zsh version 3.1.4 has been released, and an announcement posted to
For your convenience, the MD5 message digests:
I wasn't able to put in all the patches I wanted to in this release.
My development machine is on its last elbows, such that over the last
couple of days gcc was hitting a memory error every other compile.
I thought it better to release now, rather than wait until I get a new
machine, in order to have a release with the configure bug fixed.
Some significant patches NOT included in 3.1.4 are:
3933 Dynamic loading on AIX
No objection in principle, but I want the .export lists to be
generated automatically. I was going to add a "#define mod_export"
into zsh.h, and have makepro.awk add to the export lists any symbols
declared using this pseudo-keyword. As I said, practical problems
prevented me from doing this.
3950 set blocking read on stdin
I'm rather dubious about this EWOULDBLOCK business. I think this
should be EAGAIN. I'm also a bit suspicious about where the blocking
status is being changed, but I haven't examined it in detail yet.
3969 fix spaceinline() to fix yank
I think spaceinline() already has the correct behaviour, and
callers that invoke the boundary case should explicitly implement
the behaviour they actually want.
3983 exporting unset special parameters
I wanted to do this properly, to get consistent behaviour.
Practical problems again.
3990 PWD parameter
Not decided what the correct behaviour is. It might be good to aim
for the pure sh/ksh situation of having no actual special parameters
(in the zsh sense) when in sh/ksh mode.
