Re: zsh stable release, or is 4.3.4 stable enough for Fedora?

Strictly speaking, 4.3.4 isn't stable in quite the same way 4.2 is.
How ever, that's less because it's broken than because it's a moving
target; "unstable" means "it keeps changing" rather than "it doesn't
work".  I don't think there are big problems with broken code.


This doesn't answer the question about when it's going to appear because
I don't yet know.

Thanks for the detailed update on the project status.

On balance, I think most users would probably benefit from upgrading.
The thing to worry about is less stability in terms of bugs, since I
don't see much evidence that's a problem, and more stability in terms of
features; see for example the list of incompatibilities in the README

From my (little) experience, what you said and the fact that both
Ubuntu and Gentoo (other well-known distros) are already using 4.3.x
somehow, I think it's time to Fedora go this way too. Anyway, I'll
report your answer in Fedora bugzilla and see what the package
maintainers think about.
