Bourne Shell: The printf conformance tests that need "od" now use a better sed filter to be able to deal with non-POSIX versions of od (e.g. on Linux/NetBSD). Bourne Shell: The conformance tests for printf now contain tests for negative numbers. Bourne Shell: The conformance tests that check the sh -x output now set PS4 to avoid wrong results from users that export a non-standard PS4 value. star: "star -c H=exustar -pax-o binary" now created unencoded strings in the POSIX.1-2001 headers. star: the time stamp setting has been reworked and gives now correct results with symbolic links. star: star -x -to-stdout no longer tries to set time stamps to 1/1/1970 in case of errors. star: The option -secure-links has been made the default to make star more secure. ved: avoid a coredump if the .vedtmp file contains a negative file offset.
2018-08-2424 Aug 2018 14:59 major feature: configure now works around a possible gcc installation bug on Gentoo. rules.conf.in has now better comment Makefile system: Th smake specific rules are now closer to the rules used with SunPro make and gmake. Makefile system: the man pages and other localized files are now created with "make all" already. This avoids that a "make install" that usually needs root privileges creates root owned files in the build tree. CFLAGS and CPPFLAGS are no longer "owned" by the makefile system. This help people who do not read documentation. libschily: several functions have been missing from the linker map file and caused these functions to be hidden once versioned libraries work. libfind: new primaries -newerat, -newermt, -newerct. strar/libstreamar: better eror messages for non-plain files when archiving files without meta data. star: the star archive format man page has been updated.

Makefilesystem: Added a workaround for a GNU linker bug that previously prevented to create versioned shared libraries on Linux. libschily: Avoid an endless loop from fgetline() with too small buffer. libfind: added a new primary "-call" that allows to call back into the program instead of calling exec(). Bourne Shell: the builtin "find" command now supports "-call" to directly call code in the shell. This is approx. 40x faster than -exec. star: using -xattr now prints a warning when the local platform does not support NFSv4 extended attributes. star: Linux-type xattrs are now supported on Mac OS X also. star: Fixed a bug from schily-2018-07-16 that caused a core dump with "star -diff". star: Y/N answers now read up to a newline even with long answers. bsh/libshedit: reordered some #includes to avoid a warning with fdopendir() on MacOS X.

Bourne Shell manpage now mentions that unlike bash or ksh, the Bourne Shell implements parameterizable aliases. Bourne Shell: set -o hostprompt enables a bsh like default prompt. Bourne Shell: Support for the POSIX PS4 string was added. bsh: fixed a memory leak with #-commands. Bourne Shell: reading the history and the cursor maps is now done buffered. ved: The man page no longer makes man2html believe that some overview tables are headlines.
2015-08-0303 Aug 2015 11:07 major feature: Cdrtools bumped to version 3.01a30 plus some minor bugfixes. README.compile now contains a better example for Android compilation. Libshedit (the command line history editor from 1982) fixed some name space problems that apply to static linking. diff now prints POSIX compliant time stamps on AIX and HP-UX. bsh and Bourne Shell added new ulimit/limit limit names for FreeBSD and Linux. Bourne Shell added a new builtin command "builtin". Bourne Shell added a new builtin "find". Bourne Shell now supports ksh exit codes 126/127. Bourne Shell added new .sh.codename values NOTFOUND and NOEXEC. Bourne Shell: "type" now reports reserved words as well. Bourne Shell: A new builtin "@" now speeds up computations in scripts. Bourne Shell: "sync" is now a builtin. Bourne Shell: New builtin "pgrp". Bourne Shell: New builtin "killpg". Bourne Shell: New builtin "errstr". Bourne Shell: "suspend" now works better.

Bourne Shell: "set -o fullexitcode" no longer masks ? with 0xFF. Bourne Shell: Builtin "times" now uses getrusage() instead of times() and increases resolution. Bourne Shell: "set -o time" now allows to enable default timing for all foreground commands. bsh and Bourne Shell: tilde expansion now works in the history editor.
2015-07-0707 Jul 2015 09:55 major feature: The Bourne Shell finished integration for support for full 32 bit exit codes. The Bourne Shell is the first shell to support the unmasked exit code on modern UNIX systems via .sh.* readonly variables, .sh.signo and .sh.signame is set to the signal that causes execution of a trap(1) command. The Bourne Shell also added .sh.shell and .sh.version. Bourne Shell: ulimit now prints option names to make it usable. Bourne Shell: kill -l signo now works (POSIX). A new autoconf test was added to check for working linker support for weak symbols. This allows to work around a Cygwin bug.
2015-06-2424 Jun 2015 10:44 major feature: Configure now correctly deals with broken waitid() on non-POSIX platforms such as Mac OS X. Bourne Shell: the wait procedure was converted from waitpid() to waitid(). This allows to get the full 32 bits from the exit(2) parameter of the terminated child if run on a POSIX compliant platform. The related value is in variable "exstatus". Bourne Shell: On POSIX platforms variable "?" no longer contains 0 but 128 when exitcode 0xFF == 0. Bourne Shell: again handles sh -ce command correctly when the builtin "false" is used. Bourne Shell: "times" no longer prints wrong second values as a result of a mistaken round-up. Bourne Shell: "exit" now permits negative exit values. Fixed a typo in schily/wait.h that affected Haiku. The "cstyle" program is now included. The "scut" program is now included. The "spaste" program is now included.
2015-06-0404 Jun 2015 10:50 minor feature: POSIX patch now uses a one clause BSD license - thanks to Larry Wall.

The Bourne Shell man page now better describes the effects of parameter substitutions. Change now supports lines of arbitrary lengths. Cdrtools have been bumped to 3.01a29.
2015-05-1919 May 2015 08:46 minor feature: libschily now contains a getdelim() implementation. libschily: *mem.c may now have user defined exit() code. Various forgotten entries in various linker map files have been added. POSIX patch no longer has artificial limits and now permits lines of arbitrary length. POSIX patch no longer dumps core when out of memory. POSIX patch now conforms to the POSIX exit code list. POSIX patch now follows the POSIX filename determination rules. POSIX patch now has new options -W+ -Wposix and -Wall. POSIX patch now passes extensive automated tests. POSIX patch now reports version 3.0.
2015-05-0606 May 2015 12:46 minor feature: Trying to always use W*() macros for wait(2) status. Initially publish old man pages for libschily. Libfind fixed a bug in the idcache implementation. Star now again correctly deals with non-null-terminated user/group-names on old star archives. Many bug-fixes for the POSIX patch implementation. A bug-fix for the Solaris based diff(1) with -U0. SCCS now passes all regression tests on Haiku except for the ones caused by a localtime() bug in libc on Haiku.
2015-04-2424 Apr 2015 10:49 minor feature: The Bourne Shell and SCCS now work on Haiku. The problem was UNIX incompatible signal numbering and a different bit-ordering in the wait(2) status that was not address by historic UNIX code. A new program isaexec(1) was added. Isaexec is an attempt to write a portable version of the Solaris isaexec program.
2015-04-1616 Apr 2015 10:44 minor feature: Support for Haiku on x86-64 was added. Some bug-fixes and speedups for smake have been introduced. bsh/wait3.c now returns pid_t - report if this causes problems with UnixWare. bsh and Bourne Shell now write HOME /.globals and .locls with mode 0600 and do not read them in case that other people have write access to that files. The Bourne Shell now supports to specify options in more than one argument. The Bourne Shell now supports "set -o vi" and "set -o ved". Fixed a bug in libgetopt that could cause a SIGSEGV in the Bourne Shell in case that getopts(1) was used incorrectly.
2015-04-0808 Apr 2015 10:13 minor feature: Several fixes in the Bourne Shell (mainly for bugs introduced with vfork() support and the portability change sbrk() - malloc()) discovered by Heiko Eißfeldt. CPP now supports the environment SUNPRO_DEPENDENCIES.
2015-03-3030 Mar 2015 15:00 minor feature: smake version bumped to 1.2.5 cdrtools version bumped to 3.01a28 Support for ARM-64 (aarch64) was added.

Several Bugs in the Bourne Shell fixed, thanks to Heiko Eißfeldt
2015-03-1616 Mar 2015 10:38 minor feature: The key SCCS programs admin, delta, get have been enhanced to support the upcomming project mode. The next step will enhance the program sccs(1) and give basic functions for the project mode. Smake fixed several bugs that are triggered when using unusual makefiles.
2015-03-0303 Mar 2015 11:30 minor feature: SCCS has been enhanced and is now close to a state that supports whole projects instead of just single files. cpp now implements new options -M -noinclude -xuc -xsc. Several bugs in smake have been fixed that could cause smake to dump core. mkisofs: isodump no longer needs a C99 compiler. libdbgmalloc now verifies the whole heap for corruption when the program exits.
2015-02-1212 Feb 2015 10:50 minor feature: Cpp no longer has static limits for macro string space and the number of macros. The install make rules for man pages and scripts have been corrected to avoid perpetual overwriting. SCCS admin -N no longer writes corrupt checksums if a previous file was uuencoded. "sccs -R clean" no longer prints many "file not found" messages. SCCS sccs has been restructured to prepare the upcomming project support. Several small fixes in the SCCS library to prevent buffer overflows.
2015-01-2929 Jan 2015 11:34 cleanup: SCCS was bumped to version 5.07. The SCCS get command now implements an experimental option -A that annotates the gotten lines with programmer names and dates. Diagnostic mkisofs helper programs like "isoinfo" first check for the existence of Rock Ridge date before trying to access that data.
2015-01-0126 Jan 2015 17:06 cleanup: Cdrtools documentation updated to mention sourceforge instead of berlios. Fixed a bug in star's pax CLI that caused spax -X to dump core. Thanks to Pavel Raiskup for reporting.
