Release Notes: The EL_SHELL environment variable was added when using EL_CONNECTION_METHOD=none. *TIMESTAMP output now goes to the *LOG file. *LOGAPPEND now correctly appends to the default log file name. String, math, search/replace, and concat functions were added. *NOINCLUDE was added to prevent include files from being included.
Release Notes: Bugfixes and improvements. Improves foreach loops using code blocks by normalizing the list variable before executing, Improved login prompt detection, eliminating delay when using EL_CONNECTION_METHOD=none, Improved copy/paste into INTERACT/IDE from Windows and PuTTY.
Release Notes: A bug in the new *LOG feature when used on the command line was fixed.
Release Notes: This release adds include file passing var=values with spaces, adds el_shell.elt, a helpful dev script for easy copy and pasting commands, and has more small bugfixes: "send" bug "bad flag -1", dyn var capture when "=" are present e.g. +$var=(\d) = STRING, single number expect, and a bug if a number was not on a line by itself.
Release Notes: This release fixes Ubuntu bug #994386, login sending an incorrect env setup command, while loop test blank (undefined) variables, infinite loop counters (it was still counting too many), and install.sh configuring as an unprivileged user (a fix for NFS-mounted home directories). An expect-lite blog has been created.
Release Notes: This release fixes a path bug with include files, ssh (no key) login prompt detection, an *INFINITE_LOOP bug which would double/triple the countdown, and CLI -v,-vv,-vvv overrides of logging (*INFO, *WARN, *DEBUG). It works with older versions of expect (older than 5.44.x, such as cygwin, and old Linux installations) and validates EL_CONNECT_METHOD at startup (default=none).
Release Notes: This release has full IPv6 support and fixes a bug in Library mode.
Release Notes: This release fixed a bug in labels where trailing spaces would not be trimmed.
Release Notes: This release fixes a bug where line 2 of the script was not interpreted. A random example (test_expect_random.txt) shows how to add randomness to a test (and recreate the test with $seed).
Release Notes: This release fixes bug #1839620 (dynamic variables only support "$ " prompt). It specifically adds "% " to the list of prompts. The documentation has been updated regarding prompt detection.
