1.174.1. RHBA-2010:0804: bug fix update
An updated zsh package that fixes two bugs is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The zsh shell is a command interpreter which can be used as an interactive login shell and as a shell script command processor. Zsh resembles the ksh shell (the Korn shell), but includes many enhancements. Zsh supports command line editing, built-in spelling correction, programmable command completion, shell functions (with autoloading), a history mechanism, and more.
This updated package provides fixes the following bugs:
* Previously, zsh could fail when searching the history in vi mode. With this update, searching the history in vi mode works as expected and the issue is resolved. ( BZ#610505)
* Previously, running zsh in ksh mode caused incorrect error messages during syntax only check. With this update, zsh in ksh mode behaves as expected and no more incorrect messages appear during syntax only check. ( BZ#488943)
Users of zsh are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves these issues.
