      Release Notes: This release adds a new "if" builtin, a new "forfile" builtin ("forfile *.txt less $_" is equivalent to bash's "for i in #.txt; do less $i; done"), a new redirection and piping syntax ("ls >[=FILEHANDLE]", incompatible with the old sh-like syntax), a strategy for finding and running Darwin/Mac OS X Appbundle programs, support for && and || with simple commands, themes, and major startup time reduction. Backticks now work.

          Release Notes: New and enhanced built-ins (cd, dirs, complete, firsttime, function, history, unalias), an extended completion code for Perl (supports $#foo, $foo->{key, $foo->method, subroutine without &, and Perl reserved symbols), functionality after initial ! for shell escape, support for a global .pshrc file at /etc/pshrc in Unix, and piping and nesting are now possible with aliases.

            Release Notes: Support for window titles (the behavior is like prompt strings), a builtin kill which now supports sending a signal to a named job (e.g. emacs & ; kill emacs), properly pipeable aliases, a new builtin set which acts like bash's set and returns environment, and a fix to make the Unix resize handler work correctly in big xterms.

              Release Notes: "Manifest Filters" (to make simple filter writing easier), recursive globbing (similar to zsh), and a new delenv builtin have been added. kill now takes multiple process IDs, and some more work has been done on I18N.

                Release Notes: New builtins (builtin, env, help, unalias), enhanced builtins (alias, bg, cd, fg), a working Win32 port, enhancements to TAB completions, including bookmarks, hash keys, package names, and custom, locales for Default (English), French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish, and prompt evaluation is now more bash compatible and handles even more complex prompts.

                  Release Notes: Bug fixes, background process management much more like bash, and new built-ins: 'alias', 'export', and 'setenv'.

                    Release Notes: This version of the Perl Shell adds significant functionality. However, it is still an early development release. New features include rudimentary background jobs handling and job management, signal handling, filename completion, updates to history handling, flexible %built_ins mechanism for adding built-in functions and smart mode is now on by default.

                      Release Notes: A couple of typos and the code that detects the presence of Term::ReadLine have been fixed, the prompt string is now passed to iget(), which passes it to Term::ReadLine::readline or prints it out if the ReadLine module is not available, history handling has been changed so that empty lines and those consisting entirely of whitespace are not recorded, the regular expression for "smart mode" now allows "vi +3 psh" in addition to "ls -l", Getopt::Std is now used for option processing, more use is made of debug mode to print advisory information, and zero is now used instead of undef to set Term::ReadLine::MinLine to avoid undef usage trouble in Term::ReadLine::Gnu.
