Updated bash packages are available for Fedora Core 3

Fedora Update Notification

Product : Fedora Core 3
Name : bash
Version : 3.0
Release : 18
Summary : The GNU Bourne Again shell (bash) version 3.0.
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 3.0, 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:

The only difference this bash has to the previous version is a small snippet of code that is run during the logoff process for new root users; combined with the newest gpm, the cut/copy/paste buffer in gpm is cleared (in addition
to the screen being cleared as usual) to prevent the next user from discovering anything sensitive the previous root user may have drag-copied (password, etc).
* Thu Nov 04 2004 Adrian Havill havill@redhat.com 3.0-18

- add code to /etc/skel/.bash_logout to support the gpm selection buffer invalidation on virtual terminals (#115493)
