Description Rainer Alves 2005-12-29 00:10:09 UTC
- Update to 3.1.1
- Portlint cleanups
- Add SHA256 checksum

This is the first maintenance release for the third major release of bash.

As with all odd-numbered minor releases, the focus is on bug fixes;
there are several dozen important fixes included.  A few new features
have been added:  the `+=' assignment operator, the `-v var' option to
printf, and the `nocasematch' shell option are the most notable.

Short list of new features:

o  This version of bash can be configured to provide strict POSIX conformance
   by default using a new option to `configure'.

o  The `+=' assignment operator (append to the value of a string or array) is
   now supported for assignment statements and arguments to builtin commands
   that accept assignment statements.

o  The `printf' builtin takes a new option: -v var.  That causes the output
   to be placed into var instead of on stdout.

o  New shell option: nocasematch.  If non-zero, shell pattern matching ignores
   case when used by `case' and `[[' commands.
