The MirBSD Korn Shell R37b has been released, incorporating a plethora of changes from R37, which was only available from CVS, and a few news by itself.

The new ‘-combine’ Build.sh option (gcc4 only) is about as noteworthy as the Minix 3 support. Users of Emdebian, FreeWRT and Beastiebox however will find that the new memory allocator has less overhead, i.e. the shell shrank in size. On the other hand, it is now much more standards compliant, especially wrt. “set -e”.

As such, mksh R37b is a strongly suggested upgrade.

Note: Freshmeat has a new website. I am utterly confused from it, both in Lynx and Opera, so I don’t know if this announcement has made it to there. I probably will cease to use Freshmeat, similarily as Slashdot, when it became unusable in Lynx. Damn “Web 2.0”!
