Hi,

not the most recent news (about four weeks old), but I haven't found
any mentioning of this in the Zsh mailing lists so far: Kali Linux (a
popular Debian derivative for pen-testing) is switching its default
Shell to Zsh:

https://www.kali.org/news/kali-2020-3-release/

Citing from there:

»Today, we are announcing the plan to switch over to ZSH shell. This
is currently scheduled to be the default shell in 2020.4«

		Kind regards, Axel

Thanks for the heads up.

They mention they'll be shipping a custom /etc/skel/.zshrc.  Is it
available online somewhere?  I couldn't find it in their git
repositories.

Cheers,

Daniel

Found it, it's in one of their own base packages, not in the zsh
package:
https://gitlab.com/kalilinux/packages/kali-defaults/-/blob/kali/master/.zshrc

Thanks, Axel.

Overall that file seems pretty reasonable, but there are a few things
that should probably be changed (e.g., installing z-sy-h flips the
default value of the KSH_ARRAYS option).  I've reported those to Kali:

Cheers,

Daniel
