wrong release date for 2.3.0

At http://fishshell.com, under Release History it says that 2.3.0 was released
on April 22.  But as the Release Notes show, it was released on May 20. Andrew

OS X update to 2.3

I updated OS X Fish 2.2 to 2.3 and now I get the following warning when I open a shell:

set: Warning: path component /usr/local/sbin:/opt/X11/bin /usr/local/MacGPG2/bin /usr/local/bin /usr/bin /bin /usr/local/sbin /usr/sbin /sbin may not be valid in PATH.
set: No such file or directory
set: Did you mean 'set PATH $PATH /opt/X11/bin /usr/local/MacGPG2/bin /usr/local/bin /usr/bin /bin /usr/local/sbin /usr/sbin /sbin’?

Please help me understand what the warning is telling me, why it happened and how to fix it.  Appreciate any help.

Fish 2.3.0 release


Hi all,

I am very pleased to announce the release of version 2.3.0 of fish.

There are a whole stack of improvements and fixed issues, including the 
useful new `string` tool, the much-awaited Escape-as-Meta, and more.

A big thank you to all those who have contributed code, documentation, 
problem reports, and chocolate, over the last ten months.

The tarball and packages for Linux, OS X and Windows will soon be 
available from https://fishshell.com/ and the release notes will be at 
https://fishshell.com/release_notes.html - but in the meantime I have 
uploaded the release to the GitHub releases page at:
  https://github.com/fish-shell/fish-shell/releases/tag/2.3.0

As always, before upgrading, please read the release notes carefully as 
there are a number of known issues and backward-incompatible changes.

The Linux packages will be released to the release:2 channel shortly, and 
if you are using your system package manager to install fish from these 
channels a new version will make its way to you soon.

For our distributors, the tarball is available at 
https://github.com/fish-shell/fish-shell/releases/tag/2.3.0 - the SHA-256 
sum is 912bac47552b1aa0d483a39ade330356632586a8f726c0e805b46d45cfad54e5 
and the tarball has a signature from my personal PGP key, as does this 
message.

Happy fishing!

Pining for !$ and !!

Hello!

I'm a recent migrant from zsh and overall I'm overall happy with fish,
but I do sorely miss the !$ and !! constructs. As an example, I often
type a command only to have it error because I forgot to precede it with
sudo. In zsh I would normally just type "sudo !!" to execute the
previous command again, properly prefixed with sudo.

I understand that !$ and !! are not super discoverable, and that this is
an explicit design goal in fish. Does fish have an alternative mechanism
for this case that I just haven't discovered yet because I'm not
thinking outside my zsh-shaped box? All suggestions welcome.

Stig

do you use a non-UTF-8 locale?

Do you use fish with a ISO 8859 locale? Or any locale that doesn't use UTF-8 encoding?

The fish maintainers want to change how characters are handled internally by the fish source code. It would greatly simplify the code if we could assume (i.e., require) a locale that uses UTF-8 character encoding. The primary effect is that characters with code points in the range 128 to 255 (the non-ASCII characters defined by the ISO 8859 standards) would now be interpreted as potential UTF-8 sequences and invalid sequences would be replaced with a question mark.

Beta release of fish: 2.3b2


Hi all,

We're getting close!

Following a number of problems reported with fish 2.3b1, particularly in 
building on certain platforms, we're releasing a second beta today with a 
number of low-risk but last-minute changes, as well as fixes for Cygwin 
and RHEL/CentOS 5 builds.

Any further testing would be greatly appreciated. Assuming no 
show-stopping issues are found, this release will be essentially identical 
to the 2.3.0 release.

The release notes are available at:
   https://github.com/fish-shell/fish-shell/releases/tag/2.3b2

As always, please make sure you read them before upgrading as there are
a number of known issues and minor backward-incompatible changes.

You can report problems with the beta:
 * To this mailing list (making sure you tell us which version you are
   running)
 * In the GitHub issue tracker at
   https://github.com/fish-shell/fish-shell/

You can get help with fish:
 * On this mailing list, <fish-users@...>;
 * On IRC, in #fish on irc.oftc.net; or
 * At https://gitter.im/fish-shell/fish-shell using the Gitter chat room.

 * For Ubuntu Linux: packages & PPA at
   http://launchpad.net/~fish-shell/+archive/beta-2
 * For Debian, Fedora, openSUSE and RedHat/CentOS: packages and repository at

PATH unset — tab-completion for commands does not work

Hi Fishers,

Recently, I noticed that tab-completion no longer works for the first
word on a command line.  More specifically, it works for functions but
not regular commands.  For example,

	$ ma^I

suggests

	man math

but nothing else.  It turns out that PATH is not set (as reported by
‘set -q PATH’).  However, fish does find the commands when I press
enter, and ‘type’ finds them; it just does not complete them.

I had PATH set as a universal variable, but it seems that it was somehow
lost (or partially lost??).  Similar problems with universal variables
are a recurring issue for me.  What is the recommended way to manage
universal variables (e.g., back them up somehow)?

Thanks,

	Elias

Feature wishes for a next generation shell

Found this post on Y-Combinator https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=11540960 , and was happy to see a ton of fish users!

In one post they mentioned a feature request of a next gen shell, namely 'Undo'.

What are some initial thoughts on implementing an undo ( undo a dir rename, or a recursive rm ) ?  How feasible would it be in the current source of fish ?

Thanks!

~/.config/fish replaced by Firefox

Hi Fishers!

It seems that Iceweasel (aka Firefox) is replacing my ~/.config/fish/.

> ls -l .config/fish/
ls: cannot access .config/fish/aborted-session-ping: No such file or
directory
total 36
?????????? ? ?      ?          ?            ? aborted-session-ping
drwx------ 8 assman ag-avp  2048 Apr  1 00:00 archived/
-rw-r--r-- 1 assman ag-avp 31781 Apr 20 10:52 fish_history
-rw------- 1 assman ag-avp   137 Apr 20 00:00 session-state.json
-rw------- 1 assman ag-avp    51 Sep  7  2015 state.json

Note: The read error on ‘aborted-session-ping’, might be due to network
file system issues.  Earlier it showed up as

-rw------- 0 assman ag-avp 10175 Apr 20 07:49 aborted-session-ping

That is, ~/.config/fish/ looks just like the Firefox directory
~/.mozilla/firefox/$PROFILE/datareporting/.  (Except for ‘fish_history’,
of course.)

Our system makes nightly backups of the home directories, which means
that not only do I have a backup (whew!), I can also verify that
yesterday, things were still “normal”.  In fact, the PC was turned on
and I remained logged in during the night, with both fish and Firefox
running.

In the morning, the fish instances that I had open lost their
configuration the first time I pressed ‘enter’ (e.g., they reverted to
the standard prompt).

Also, ~/.config/fish/ is being updated every now and then as reported by
‘ls -ld’, though I see no changes to the contents (except for
‘fish_history’ being updated, of course, but that does not trigger the
change to the directory's time stamp).

Any ideas what could be happening here?

Incidentally, the first command I tried to run today was ‘help’, which
calls Firefox through ‘xdg-open’.  That fish instance crashed on that
command, but that is not so unusual.  It happens to me sometimes that
fish crashes after longer periods of inactivity.

My fish, in case that turns out to be relevant, is a self-compiled 2.1.2.

	Elias
