    Release Notes: Tilde expansion now works during chown completion. tar completion now performs path completion to tar files correctly, at the expense of path completion *within* tar files, due to shortcomings in bash. The old behavior can be obtained by setting $COMP_TAR_INTERNAL_PATHS prior to sourcing. The FAQ section of the README was expanded.

      Release Notes: Tilde expansion has been put back in place, as its removal broke too many parts of the code.

        Release Notes: The expansion of ~us<Tab> to /home/user on the command line is now avoided. gdb completion now completes correctly on paths to binaries. unzip now recognises Java Enterprise Application Archive files (.ear).

          Release Notes: In this version, edit and unedit options were added to CVS completion. .o files are no longer excluded from make completion. {gzip,bzip2} -t should also complete on .gz and .bz2 files, respectively, and the man completion still needed one more fix for FreeBSD.

            Release Notes: Some minor fixes were made for BSD portability. .tbz is now accepted as a valid extension by the tar completion code.

                Release Notes: $BASH_COMPLETION_DIR was accidentally set to /etc/bash_completion instead of /etc/bash_completion.d. In tar completion, completing on files within a tar file would consume all memory in bash 2.05a, due to a known bug in bash. This is now worked around.

                  Release Notes: tar completion now recognises the .tbz2 extension. Additionally, 'tar cf' completed properly, but 'tar -cf' did not. This has been fixed. Galeon, links, and curl now also complete on .html files. unzip and zipinfo now recognise the .wsz extension, as used by XMMS.

                    Release Notes: .html file completion was added for Netscape, Mozilla, lynx, and w3m. The code now uses 'command ls' instead of '\ls', since while the latter avoids unwanted aliases, it will still call functions. newgrp has been added to the list of commands that complete on group names. tar completion now completes first on tar files, then on their contents. Completion for the bash built-in 'complete' has been added. lilo(8) completion has been added. A complete overhaul of the Java completion code was performed.

                      Release Notes: Basic completion for the RCS suite (rcs, rlog, ci, co) has been added. A bug in the known hosts completion on platforms with no GNU sed has been fixed. A bug present in both the _comp-dpkg-installed-packages() and _comp-dpkg-hold-packages() functions has been fixed.
