 Zsh version 3.1.0 (beta) has been released!
 -------------------------------------------

This is the first in the zsh-3.1 series.  These are beta versions which
means that they are not as throughly tested as zsh-3.0.2 and may have
serious bugs.

This release supports dynamically loadable binary modules on systems
which have the dlopen/dlsym interface.  You have to give the
- --enable-dynamic option to configure if you want to try dynamic loading.
This will compile zle and the compctl builtin into a loadable module.  You
have do `make install.modules' before starting zsh otherwise it will be
unable to find the zle module.

Dynamic loading is only tested on Linux and SunOS 4.  On SunOS 4 the
compctl module does not work since it uses symbols from the zle module and
I do not know how can I export these from the zle module in a way that
compctl will find it.  On elf systems this should not be a problem.

There is a new builtin, zmodload which can be used to load/unload modules,
define module dependencies and declare autoloaded builtins (so that the
module is only loaded when it is actually needed).

There are several other non-module related changes.  See the ChangeLog for
more details.

The latest release, the zsh FAQ and documentation is available from 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
marked with a star may mirror ftp.math.gatech.edu instead of the primary
site.

444f837f4c3c7d0f0c67df80a0a5e967  zsh-beta.doc.tar.gz

The complete source is in zsh-3.1.0.tar.gz.
zsh-doc.tar.gz contains preformatted PostScript, dvi, html and info
documentation for those who do not have the necessary tools to compile
these from the sources.

The RCS file is trimmed (it become so big that it did not fit on a single
floppy) and now only contains revisions since zsh-3.0.1.  It has two
branches: the zsh-3.0.1 branch contains the final zsh-3.0 release and the
zsh-3.1.0 branch the zsh-3.1.0 release.

Merry Christmas and happy new year to everyone.
