Hopefully this will really be the last pre-release before zsh-3.0.  I'm
going to a holiday for a week and after that I'd like to make the final
zsh-3.0 release.  If you find a bug, please reoprt it to
zsh-workers@math.gatech.edu.

A fatal bug in zfree is fixed (this only affects those using
 --enable-zsh-mem).  LANG and LC_* variables now behave as POSIX requires.
There are some minor sh compatibility fixes and now even perl configure
scripts work with sh linked to zsh.

The malloc() debug routines in mem.c are further improved.  Developers
and beta-testers my find it useful to configure zsh with

./configure --enable-zsh-{mem,{mem-,}debug,secure-free}

This will create a bigger and slower executable but it may catch some
hidden bugs.  Unfortunately it does not work on all systems, e.g. I did not
manage to get it work on IBM AIX 3.2.

The texinfo documentation is finally really up-to-date.  For those who do
not have the necessary tools to process texinfo there is precompiled
documentation in zsh-doc.tar.gz in PostScript, dvi, info and html formats.
It also contains the PostScript and plain text version of intro.ms but that
hasn't been updated since the release of zsh-2.5.0.

See the ChangeLog for the full list of the changes.

The new release can be found on the following anonymous ftp sites.  The
first is the official archive site.  The rest are mirror sites which are
kept frequently up to date.  The sites maked with a star may mirror
ftp.math.gatech.edu instead of the primary site.

If you already have zsh-3.0-pre5, you can apply the patch in
zsh-3.0-pre6.diff.gz and you do not need to download the full source.
To do this just cd into the directory where the zsh-3.0-pre5 sources are
kept and issue

gzip -dc zsh-3.0-pre6.diff.gz | patch -p
touch stamp-h.in configure
