Fedora 8 Update: mksh-36b-1.fc8



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2008-11369
2008-12-17 03:33:51
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : mksh
Product     : Fedora 8
Version     : 36b
Release     : 1.fc8
URL         : http://www.mirbsd.de/mksh/
Summary     : MirBSD enhanced version of the Korn Shell
Description :
mksh is the MirBSD enhanced version of the Public Domain Korn shell (pdksh),
a bourne-compatible shell which is largely similar to the original AT&T Korn
shell. It includes bug fixes and feature improvements in order to produce a
modern, robust shell good for interactive and especially script use, being a
bourne shell replacement, pdksh successor and an alternative to the C shell.

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

Relevant changes in this release for Linux are as follows (taken from the
official change description for this release):    __typeof__ is not used.
Statements can be used as expressions. An alias expansion bug was fixed. bashiop
use inside a function was fixed. strings.h is pulled if it exists. Some format
string warnings, dead code, and casts were cleaned up.    Several of these
former issues have been noticed by Fedora users (with and without a bug report,
partially directly to upstream) and upstream suggested me personally to perform
this update for all branches.
