Fedora Update Notification
2007-09-10 09:53:06.471568

Name        : mksh
Product     : Fedora 7
Version     : 31
Release     : 1.fc7
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:

This release supports building with TenDRA and Fabrice Bellard's tcc, improves some mirtoconf checks so availability of, for example, mknod() is checked more reliably, fixes the OpenBSD port, supports MidnightBSD, adds the new Emacs binding ESC ^L (clear-screen), and adds the commands "source" (like the dot command, but with just the current working directory searched, like GNU bash), "rename" (an absolutely minimal version of mv, for rescue purposes), and "set +/-o arc4random" (for controlling what algorithm is used to produce $RANDOM numbers).
