Fedora Test Update Notification
FEDORA-2003-033

---------------------------------------------------------------------

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).
