Release Notes: This release fully supports Python 3 (Python2 is still supported and the default), which additionally requires ConfigObj of at least version 5.0.0. Bash 4.3 introduced the new features direxpand, gloabasciiranges, and show-mode-in-prompt, which have been added. Minor UI improvmenents have been made, along with a "report bugs"-button in the about dialog. The German translation was updated and completed. Some minor bugs have been squashed.
Release Notes: This release fixes bugs in the build system which prevented building rpm packages, as well as bugs which made the prompt style "clock advanced" not display properly when switching users or using the monochrome version. A new option for colorshell allows returning to the default color after the prompt. The "reload" command works again (broken in 8.2). This release introduces "--no-postinstall" and "--no-installdocs" configure flags for package maintainers.
