metashell is a lightweight, heavy punch, interactive, intelligent command line shell. The difference lies in its ability to determine a file's data type, and automatically run your desired applications. It uses file data types (MIME types) to determine a file's type, and then using user-defined applications automatically opens the file.

Release Notes: The code was cleaned up. Handling of tilde (~) versus /home/ was fixed. The configuration editing engine was rewritten to be independent of the OS binary formats. Auto-install bugs were fixed. Directory listing of filetypes (filetype and wildcards) was added. Auto-update was added, which will update metashell without changeing configuration.

Aliases have been added. ~/.msh_apps has been added for default applications, as well as ~/.msh_aliases for command aliases. The need for "whereis" (a Linux binary) has been removed.
