Updated zsh packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The zsh shell is a command interpreter usable as an interactive login shell and as a shell script command processor. Zsh resembles the ksh shell, but includes many enhancements. The zsh shell supports command line editing, built-in spelling correction, programmable command completion, shell functions with autoloading, a history mechanism, and more.
Prior to this update, zsh interpreted variable assignments as other commands and tried to execute them when running zsh in ksh compatibility mode due to a parser error. This update modifies the underling code to interpret variable assignments as expected.
Prior to this update, the tab completion for Apache Subversion (SVN) did not work as expected when running the "svn diff" command in zsh. This update modifies the underlying code to ensure that SVN runs as expected.
All users of zsh are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
