mksh 28.0-2 source package in Ubuntu


mksh (28.0-2) unstable; urgency=low

  * Fix unaligned memory access on IA-64 (same fix was applied
    upstream for the next full release)

mksh (28.0-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * sample file (dot.mkshrc) is now in upstream
  * New upstream release; summary of (Debian user relevant) changes:
    - Fix some more -Wchar-subscripts
    - Adjust manual page to the fact that mksh can be used as
      /bin/sh although it's not specifically designed to
    - Correct and enhance book citation list in the manual page
    - Bring back the "version" editing command in both emacs and
      vi modes, at ESC ^V like AT&T ksh93r+
    - Fix typo which resulted in the wrong names for signals being
      printed (error codes were used instead) on GNU/Linux, Solaris
      and GNU/Cygwin. Ease changing signame/siglist sources.
    - Some more code, manual page, build system and regression test
      changes, cleanup and redundancy removal
    - Merge a few OpenBSD changes, yielding better multiline prompt
      support and textual improvements in the manual page
    - Adjust $PS1 sizing, printing, and redrawal routines
      for mksh behaviour and single- and multiline prompts
    - For the AT&T $PS1 hack (second char = CR), do not
      output the delimiting characters any more, even if they
      are printable - fixes platforms without non-printable
      characters (Interix, Cygwin) and prompt size calculation
    - Calculate length of prompt in lines and columns-of-last-line
      instead of using some tricks to skip the beginning of the prompt,
      resulting in correct redrawing of prompts with ANSI colour codes
    - Correct displaying of prompts spanning more than one line
      and/or with embedded newlines or carriage returns; correct
      documentation of $PS1 and the redraw editing command
    - Change one of the testsuite "expected failure" tests from bug
      to feature - it might actually be required by BSD make
    - Enable to bind key sequences which consist of the usual optional
      one or two praefices and the control character, as well as an
      optional trailing tilde (if the trailing character is not a tilde,
      it's processed as usual, but processing of the editing command is
      postponed until after the trailing character has been read)
    - Bind the NetBSD(R) wscons (vt220 / wsvt25), GNU screen and
      XFree86(R) (xterm-xfree86) "home", "end"
      and "delete" keys to ^A, ^E and ^D, respectively, except
      that "delete" does not act as logoff switch
    - Make sure ^T is bound to 'transpose' as documented
      (bug spotted by hondza)
    - Remove the 'stuff' and 'stuff-reset' editing commands
    - Correct the manual page regarding the 'abort' command, its
      interaction with 'search-history' and how to exit the latter
    - Bring back "set -o posix" turning off 'braceexpand'
    - Mention IRC support channel and mailing list in manual page
    - Make the "last command of a pipeline is executed in a
      subshell" issue a dependable mksh feature
    - Improve regression test comments and a few tests
    - If $RANDOM is generated from arc4random(3), display at
      most 31 bits of it like nbsh(1), instead of only 15 bits.
