Fedora Core 1 Update: bash-2.05b-34



---------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2003-033
2003-12-23
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : bash
Version     : 2.05b                      
Release     : 34                  
Summary     : The GNU Bourne Again shell (bash) version 2.05b.
Description :
The GNU Bourne Again shell (Bash) is a shell or command language
interpreter that is compatible with the Bourne shell (sh). Bash
incorporates useful features from the Korn shell (ksh) and the C shell
(csh). Most sh scripts can be run by bash without modification. This
package (bash) contains bash version 2.05b, which improves POSIX
compliance over previous versions. However, many old shell scripts
will depend upon the behavior of bash 1.14, which is included in the
bash1 package. Bash is the default shell for Red Hat Linux.  It is
popular and powerful, and you'll probably end up using it.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

When interactively editing a command line with UTF-8 encoding, the GNU
bash shell can be very inefficient (bug #102353, bug #110777).  A
method for speeding up UTF-8 processing in bash has been incorporated
in this updated package.

Other bugs fixed in this package include bug #83776 (bash.info
problem), bug #109269 (apply official patches) and bug #111171 (build
requirements).
