Name        : mksh
Product : Fedora 20
Version : 50f
Release : 1.fc20
URL : https://www.mirbsd.org/mksh.htm
Summary : MirBSD enhanced version of the Korn Shell
Description :
mksh is the MirBSD enhanced version of the Public Domain Korn shell (pdksh),
a bourne-compatible shell which is largely similar to the original AT&T
shell. It includes bug fixes and feature improvements in order to produce a
modern, robust shell good for interactive and especially script use, being a
bourne shell replacement, pdksh successor and an alternative to the C shell.

Update Information:

R50f is a required security and bugfix release:

* Add a patch marker for vendor patch versioning to mksh.1
* SECURITY: make unset HISTFILE actually work
* Document some more issues with the current history code
* Remove some unused code
* RCSID-only sync with OpenBSD, for bogus and irrelevant changes
* Also disable field splitting for alias 'local= ypeset'
* Fix read -n-1 to not be identical to read -N-1
* Several fixes and improvements to lksh(1) and mksh(1) manpages
* More code (int → size_t), comment and testsuite fixes
* Make dot.mkshrc more robust (LP#1441853)
* Fix issues with IFS='' read, found by edualbus
* Fix integer overflows related to file descriptor parsing, found by Pawel
Wylecial (LP#1440685); reduce memory usage for I/O redirs
* Document in the manpage how to set ±U according to the current locale
settings via LANG/LC_* parameters (cf. Debian #782225)
* Some code cleanup and restructuring
* Handle number parsing and storing more carefully
