Since v2.04, bash has allowed you to intelligently program and extend its standard completion behavior to achieve complex command lines with just a few keystrokes. Imagine typing ssh [Tab] and being able to complete on hosts from your ~/.ssh/known_hosts files. Or typing man 3 str [Tab] and getting a list of all string handling functions in the UNIX manual. mount system: [Tab] would complete on all exported file-systems from the host called system, while make [Tab] would complete on all targets in Makefile. This project was conceived to produce programmable completion routines for the most common Linux/UNIX commands, reducing the amount of typing sysadmins and programmers need to do on a daily basis.

Release Notes: Bugfixes and feature enhancements.
Release Notes: Many new completion functions have been added, and many existing ones have been improved or optimised. In addition, innumerable bugs have been fixed, including important bash 3.1 compatibility issues. This release is believed to be bash 3.1 compliant.
Release Notes: The disabling of glob expansion in _filedir() has itself been disabled, as this triggered a bug in bash, which had the annoying effect of temporarily disabling alias expansion. mc completion has been greatly extended. A bug in lilo completion has been fixed. Improvements have been made to iwconfig completion. tcpdump and dhclient completion have been fixed to use the correct interfaces function. MPlayer options should now use dashes, not underscores.
