We've finally implemented another bash-compatible feature in mksh, namely variable substitution with substrings. Try print ${var:2:3}. The first character after the (first) colon must be numeric, an opening parenthesis, a dollar sign or a space right now; use ${var: n: m} for the bash ${var:n:m} (or ${var:$n:m} or even ${var:(n):m}). All of these are bash-compatible. This doesn't nest in either mksh or bash.

More features are to follow ☺

To install MirOS BSD, please use a direct download (or even netinstall from the same place) at the moment. We will provide MirOS #10RC2 as a Live+Install ISO image again at some time in the future (give us 1-2 weeks); MirOS #10RC1 contained a bug regarding the live CD part which went for a few days undetected; the creation of the ISO fell into that timeframe.

On a side note, the series of GNOME port updates is continuing.
