Zsh is a UNIX command interpreter (shell) which of the standard shells most resembles the Korn shell (ksh). It includes enhancements of many types, notably in the command-line editor, options for customising its behaviour, filename globbing, features to make C-shell (csh) users feel more at home and extra features drawn from tcsh.

Release Notes: This release mostly fixes bugs, with some minor additions noted in the NEWS file. If you were waiting for 5.0.1, you haven't missed it. A significant bug turned up at the last minute, so it wasn't announced, and 5.0.2 replaces it.
Release Notes: Version 5.0.0 of zsh is the new stable release. There are many changes since the last stable release series, 4.2, of which the most important is handling of multibyte characters. The file NEWS in the distribution gives more information. The file README details some incompatibilities with previous versions, mostly minor. Users of the development release series will not see major changes since the previous release, 4.3.17.
Release Notes: This is a bugfix release. It fixes a problem in 4.3.15 which caused the command hash table to take a long time to build on systems with commands stored on the network. 4.3.16 was not widely announced, and anyone upgrading should go straight to 4.3.17.
Release Notes: This release fixes a significant bug in process management in POSIX compatibility mode reported since 4.3.14, although the problem has been present since 4.3.10.
Release Notes: This is a bugfix release for the 4.3 development branch; there are no significant new features, although there are the usual improvements to completion and other shell functions.
