* Mon Jan 17 2011
  - 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
    * 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.
* Mon Oct 18 2010
  - fix czech message
* Thu Oct 14 2010
  - Update bash 4.1 to patch level 9
    * When declaring an associative array and implicitly assigning a
      value to element "0", bash does not correctly allocate memory,
      leading to a segmentation violation when that element or the
      array itself is unset.
    * 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.
* Fri Sep 03 2010
  - builtin "man2html"generates html manual with a timestamp
    that causes the package to be published over and over again.
* Mon Aug 16 2010
  - A modified version of the pipe patch which should handle
    the PIPESTATUS array
* Fri Aug 13 2010
  - Disable the pipe patch from Thu Jun 24 10:40:09 CEST 2010
    as this resets the PIPESTATUS array to the status of the
    forground process only
* Thu Jul 29 2010
  - Add fix from mailing list to avoid crash
* Mon Jul 19 2010
  - Comment out recommendation of bash-completion, as I'd like
    no to see the bugs of bash-completion in my bugzilla
* Sat Jul 17 2010
  - Do not package static libraries
  - Fix Recommends/Suggests
* Thu Jun 24 2010
  - Add fix from upstream: restore the parser state over changing
    readline editing mode otherwise e.g. set alias before the
    change are lost.
* Thu Jun 24 2010
  - Avoid running the last member of a pipe command sequence to run
    in its own subshell, this makes know lines like the simple
    echo 1 2 | read a b; echo $a $b
    work as expected by the users
* Tue May 25 2010
  - Update bash 4.1 to patch level 7
    * Bash did not correctly print/reproduce here documents attached
      to commands inside compound commands such as for and while.
    * A typo caused bash to not honor a precision specification in a
      printf format.
* Mon Apr 12 2010
  - Add fix for memory double free in array handling
* Tue Apr 06 2010
  - 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.
* Tue Mar 09 2010
  - Add patch from bash-bug list to avoid crahs on some strange
    TAB completions
* Mon Mar 01 2010
  - fix warning no return statement in function returning non-void
    to fix build (in bashline.c)
* Wed Feb 24 2010
  - Avoid hang due malloc()/free() within signal handler (bnc#522351)
* Thu Feb 18 2010
  - Add patch to reflect the usage of /etc/bash.bashrc (bnc#577221)
* Mon Feb 15 2010
  - 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
    * 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
    * `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.
