Log message:
PR/53841: Update shells/xonsh to 0.8.8.

====================
Xonsh Change Log
====================

v0.8.8
====================

**Added:**

* ``vox new`` has an added ``-p --interpreter`` flag for choosing the python \ 
interpreter to use for virtualenv creation
* The default Python intrepreter vox uses to create virtual environments can be \ 
set using the ``$VOX_DEFAULT_INTERPRETER`` environment variable.

**Changed:**

* ``lib.ChainDB`` now resolves results to the type of the inputs if possible

v0.8.7
====================

**Added:**

* New xonsh syntax ``pf`` strings -- combining path strings with f-strings.

  Usage:

  .. code-block:: bash

       gil@bad_cat ~ $ repos = 'github.com'
       gil@bad_cat ~ $ pf"~/{repos}"
       PosixPath('/home/gil/github.com')
       gil@bad_cat ~ $ pf"{$HOME}"
       PosixPath('/home/gil')
       gil@bad_cat ~ $ pf"/home/${'US' + 'ER'}"
       PosixPath('/home/gil')

**Fixed:**

* Set ``ls`` to ``predict_true`` in ``default_threadable_predictors``.  This \ 
prevents ``ls`` on OSX
  from being flagged on OSX as unthreadable (incorrectly) because it relies on \ 
``ncurses``.

v0.8.6
====================

**Added:**

* Doco about how to update xonsh and how to set and unset environment variables

**Fixed:**

* Updated behavior of the ``cat`` coreutils function so that it properly
  handles as vareity of cases such as:

    * Exits after concatenating normal files which have a finite size
    * Continues to run for special files which do not have a size,
      such as ``/dev/random``
    * Is interruptable in all cases with Crtl-C.
* Callable aliases were not properly raising a ``CalledProcessError`` when they
  returned a non-zero exist status when ``$RAISE_SUBPROC_ERROR = True``. This has
  been fixed.
* Fixed interpretation of color names with PTK2 and Pygments 2.3.1.

v0.8.5
====================

**Added:**

* Add alias to `base16 shell <https://github.com/chriskempson/base16-shell>`_

* Installation / Usage
    1. To install use pip

    .. code-block:: bash

        python3 -m pip install xontrib-base16-shell

    2. Add on ``~/.xonshrc``

    .. code:: python
        :number-lines:

        $BASE16_SHELL = $HOME + "/.config/base16-shell/"
        xontrib load base16_shell

    3. See image

    .. image:: \ 
https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Erick … rminal.png
        :width: 600px
        :alt: terminal.png
* New ``DumbShell`` class that kicks in whenever ``$TERM == "dumb"``.
  This usually happens in emacs. Currently, this class inherits from
  the ``ReadlineShell`` but adds some light customization to make
  sure that xonsh looks good in the resultant terminal emulator.
* Aliases from foreign shells (e.g. Bash) that are more than single expressions,
  or contain sub-shell executions, are now evaluated and run in the foreign shell.
  Previously, xonsh would attempt to translate the alias from sh-lang into
  xonsh. These restrictions have been removed.  For example, the following now
  works:

  .. code-block:: sh

      $ source-bash 'alias eee="echo aaa \$(echo b)"'
      $ eee
      aaa b

* New ``ForeignShellBaseAlias``, ``ForeignShellFunctionAlias``, and
  ``ForeignShellExecAlias`` classes have been added which manage foreign shell
  alias execution.

**Changed:**

* String aliases will now first be checked to see if they contain sub-expressions
  that require evaluations, such as ``@(expr)``, ``$[cmd]``, etc. If they do,
  then an ``ExecAlias`` will be constructed, rather than a simple list-of-strs
  substitutiuon alias being used. For example:

  .. code-block:: sh

      $ aliases['uuu'] = "echo ccc $(echo ddd)"
      $ aliases['uuu']
      ExecAlias('echo ccc $(echo ddd)\n', filename='<exec-alias:uuu>')
      $ uuu
      ccc ddd

* The ``parse_aliases()`` function now requires the shell name.
* ``ForeignShellFunctionAlias`` now inherits from ``ForeignShellBaseAlias``
  rather than ``object``.

**Fixed:**

* Fixed issues where the prompt-toolkit v2 shell would print an extra newline
  after Python evaluations in interactive mode.

v0.8.4
====================

**Added:**

* Added the possibility of arbitrary paths to the help strings in ``vox \ 
activate`` and
  ``vox remove``; also updated the documentation accordingly.
* New ``xonsh.aliases.ExecAlias`` class enables multi-statement aliases.
* New ``xonsh.ast.isexpression()`` function will return a boolean of whether
  code is a simple xonsh expression or not.
* Added top-level ``run-tests.xsh`` script for safely running the test suite.

**Changed:**

* String aliases are no longer split with ``shlex.split()``, but instead use
  ``xonsh.lexer.Lexer.split()``.
* Update xonsh/prompt/cwd.py _collapsed_pwd to print 2 chars if a directory \ 
begins with "."
* test which determines whether a directory is a virtualenv

  previously it used to check the existence of 'pyvenv.cfg'
  now it checks if 'bin/python' is executable

**Fixed:**

* Fixed issue with ``and`` & ``or`` being incorrectly tokenized in implicit
  subprocesses. Auto-wrapping of certain subprocesses will now correctly work.
  For example::

      $ echo x-and-y
      x-and-y
* Fix EOFError when press `control+d`
* fix no candidates if no permission files in PATH
* Fixed interpretation of color names with PTK2 and Pygments 2.3.
* Several ResourceWarnings: unclosed file in tests
* AttributeError crash when using --timings flag
* issue #2929

v0.8.3
====================

**Added:**

* Dociumentation paragrapgh about gow to run xonsh in Emacs shell

**Changed:**

* Updated what pip requirements are needed to build the documnetaion
* ``$XONSH_TRACEBACK_LOGFILE`` now beside strings also accepts ``os.PathLike``
  objects.
* Updated vended version of ``ply`` to 3.11
* Deprecation warnings now print from stacklevel 3.

**Fixed:**

* Annotation assignment statements (e.g. ``x : int = 42``) are now supported.
* Fixed error output wording for fg and bg commands
* Flake8 errors
* xonsh can now properly parse import statements with trailing comma within
  parentheses, e.g.::

    from x import (y, z,)
* ResourceWarning: unclosed scandir iterator in imphooks.py
* Removed use of deprecated ``inspect.formatargspec()`` for ``inspect.signature()``
* ``Makefile`` directive that updates vended version of ``ply``

v0.8.2
====================

**Changed:**

* Now there is only a single instance of ``string.Formatter()`` in the
  code base, which is called ``xonsh.tools.FORMATTER``.

**Fixed:**

* f-strings (``f"{expr}"``) are now fully capable of executing xonsh \ 
expressions.
  The one exception to this is that ``![cmd]`` and ``!(cmd)`` don't work because
  the ``!`` character interferes with Python string formatting. If you need to
  run subprocesses inside of f-strings, use ``$[cmd]`` and ``$(cmd)`` instead.
* Fixed occasional "no attribute 'settitle' error"

v0.8.1
====================

**Added:**

* ``SubprocSpec`` has a new ``pipeline_index`` integer attribute that indicates
  the commands position in a pipeline. For example, in

  .. code-block:: sh

    p = ![ls -l | grep x]

  The ``ls`` command would have a pipeline index of 0
  (``p.specs[0].pipeline_index == 0``) and ``grep`` would have a pipeline index
  of 1 (``p.specs[1].pipeline_index == 1``).  This may be usefule in callable
  alaises which recieve the spec as an argument.

**Changed:**

* Removed ``fish`` from list of supported foreign shells in the wizard.
* Circle CI config updated to use a pinned version of ``black`` (18.9b0)
* Pytest plugin now uses ``xonsh.main.setup()`` to setup test environment.
* Linux platform discovery will no longer use ``platform.linux_distribution()``
  on Python >=3.6.6. due to pending deprecation warning.
* Updated Linux Guide as Xonsh is now available in Arch Linux official repositories.

**Fixed:**

* Builtin dynamic proxies and deprecation warning proxies were not deleting
  attributes and items properly.
* Fixed stdout/sdterr writing infinite recurssion error that would occur in
  long pipelines of callable aliases.
* Fixed a bug which under very rare conditions could cause the shell
  to die with PermissionError exception while sending SIGSTOP signal
  to a child process.
* Fixed further raw string deprecation warnings thoughout the code base.

v0.8.0
====================

**Added:**

* Windows CI jobs on Azure Pipelines
* The ``cryptop`` command will no longer have its output captured
  by default.
* Added new env-var ``PTK_STYLE_OVERRIDES``. The variable is
  a dictionary containing custom prompt_toolkit style definitions.
  For instance::

    $PTK_STYLE_OVERRIDES['completion-menu'] = 'bg:#333333 #EEEEEE'

  will provide for more visually pleasing completion menu style whereas::

    $PTK_STYLE_OVERRIDES['bottom-toolbar'] = 'noreverse'

  will prevent prompt_toolkit from inverting the bottom toolbar colors
  (useful for powerline extension users)

  Note: This only works with prompt_toolkit 2 prompter.

**Changed:**

* All ``__xonsh_*__`` builtins have been migrated to a ``XonshSession`` instance at
  ``__xonsh__``. E.g. ``__xonsh_env__`` is now ``__xonsh__.env``.
* Other xonsh-specific builtins (such as ``XonshError``) have been proxied to
  the ``__xonsh__`` session object as well.

**Deprecated:**

* All ``__xonsh_*__`` builtins are deprected. Instead, the corresponding
  ``__xonsh__.*`` accessor should be used. The existing ``__xonsh_*__`` accessors
  still work, but issue annoying warnings.

**Fixed:**

* Fixed deprecation warnings from unallowed escape sequences as well as \ 
importing abstract base classes directly from ``collections``
* Fix for string index error in stripped prefix
* bash_completions to include special characters in lprefix

  Previously, glob expansion characters would not be included in lprefix for \ 
replacement

  .. code-block:: sh

    $ touch /tmp/abc
    $ python
    >>> from bash_completion import bash_completions
    >>>
    >>> def get_completions(line):
    ...     split = line.split()
    ...     if len(split) > 1 and not line.endswith(' '):
    ...         prefix = split[-1]
    ...         begidx = len(line.rsplit(prefix)[0])
    ...     else:
    ...         prefix = ''
    ...         begidx = len(line)
    ...     endidx = len(line)
    ...     return bash_completions(prefix, line, begidx, endidx)
    ...
    >>> get_completions('ls /tmp/a*')
    ({'/tmp/abc '}, 0)

  Now, lprefix begins at the first special character:

  .. code-block:: sh

    $ python
    >>> from bash_completion import bash_completions
    >>>
    >>> def get_completions(line):
    ...     split = line.split()
    ...     if len(split) > 1 and not line.endswith(' '):
    ...         prefix = split[-1]
    ...         begidx = len(line.rsplit(prefix)[0])
    ...     else:
    ...         prefix = ''
    ...         begidx = len(line)
    ...     endidx = len(line)
    ...     return bash_completions(prefix, line, begidx, endidx)
    ...
    >>> get_completions('ls /tmp/a*')
    ({'/tmp/abc '}, 7)
* The ``xonsh.main.setup()`` function now correctly passes the
  ``shell_type`` argument to the shell instance.
* try_subproc_toks now works for subprocs with trailing and leading whitespace

  Previously, non-greedy wrapping of commands would fail if they had leading and \ 
trailing whitespace:

  .. code-block:: sh

    $ true && false || echo a
    xonsh: For full traceback set: $XONSH_SHOW_TRACEBACK = True
    NameError: name 'false' is not defined

    $ echo; echo && echo a

    xonsh: For full traceback set: $XONSH_SHOW_TRACEBACK = True
    NameError: name 'echo' is not defined

  Now, the commands are parsed as expected:

  .. code-block:: sh

    $ true && false || echo a
    a

    $ echo; echo && echo a

    a

v0.7.10
====================

**Added:**

* 'off' can be passed as falsy value to all flags accepting boolean argument.
- DragonFly BSD support
* Format strings (f-strings) now allow environment variables to be looked up.
  For example, ``f"{$HOME}"`` will yield ``"/home/user"``. \ 
Note that this will
  look up and fill in the ``detype()``-ed version of the environment variable,
  i.e. it's native string representation.

**Changed:**

* Running ``aurman`` command will now be predicted to be unthreaded by default.

**Fixed:**

* The xonsh ``xonfig wizard`` would crash if an unknown foreign shell was
  provided. This has been fixed.
* The ``hg split`` command will now predict as unthreadable.
* Fixed path completer crash on attempted f-string completion

v0.7.9
====================

**Added:**

* The python-mode ``@(expr)`` syntax may now be used inside of subprocess
  arguments, not just as a stand-alone argument. For example:

  .. code-block:: sh

    $ x = 'hello'
    $ echo /path/to/@(x)
    /path/to/hello

  This syntax will even properly expand to the outer product if the ``expr``
  is a list (or other non-string iterable) of values:

  .. code-block:: sh

    $ echo /path/to/@(['hello', 'world'])
    /path/to/hello /path/to/world

    $ echo @(['a', 'b']):@('x', 'y')
    a:x a:y b:x b:y

  Previously this was not possible.
* New ``$DOTGLOB`` environment variable enables globs to match
  "hidden" files which start with a literal ``.``. Set this
  variable to ``True`` to get this matching behavior.
  Cooresponding API changes have been made to
  ``xonsh.tools.globpath()`` and ``xonsh.tools.iglobpath()``
* New environment variable ``$FOREIGN_ALIASES_SUPPRESS_SKIP_MESSAGE``
  enables the removal of skipping foreign alias messages.
* New ``--suppress-skip-message`` command line option for skipping
  foreign alias messages when sourcing foreign shells.

**Fixed:**

* In Bash completions, if there are no files to source, a ``set()`` will
  no longer be inserted into the completion script.
* Fixed issue with TAB completion in readline not replacing values
  with spaces properly when the prefix was unquoted.

v0.7.8
====================

**Added:**

* ``xonsh.lib.collections.ChainDB``, a chain map which merges mergable fields

**Fixed:**

* Pass all params to voxapi.create
* PTK tab-completion now auto-accepts completion if only one option is present
  (note that fix is only for PTK2)

v0.7.7
====================

**Added:**

* A xontrib which adds support for autojump to xonsh
* Added new env-var ``XONSH_HISTORY_MATCH_ANYWHERE``. If set to ``True`` then
  up-arrow history matching will match existing history entries with the search
  term located anywhere, not just at the beginning of the line. Default value is
  ``False``

**Changed:**

* Improved iteration over virtual environments in ``Vox.__iter__``

**Fixed:**

* Fix for ``Enter`` not returning from Control-R search buffer
* Fixed automatic wrapping of many subprocesses that spanned multiple lines via
  line continuation characters with logical operators separating the commands.
  For example, the following now works:

  .. code-block:: sh

        echo 'a' \
        and echo 'b'
* Environment swapping would not properly reraise errors due to weird
  Python name binding issue.

v0.7.6
====================

**Added:**

* Callable aliases may now accept a ``stack`` argument. If they do, then the
  stack, as computed from the aliases call site, is provided as a list of
  ``FrameInfo`` objects (as detailed in the standard library ``inspect``
  module). Otherwise, the ``stack`` parameter is ``None``.
* ``SubprocSpec`` now has a ``stack`` attribute, for passing the call stack
  to callable aliases. This defaults to ``None`` if the spec does not
  need the stack. The ``resolve_stack()`` method computes the ``stack``
  attribute.

**Changed:**

* xonsh/environ.py
  Exceptions are caught in the code executed under Env.swap()

**Fixed:**

* Scripts are now cached by their realpath, not just abspath.
* Fixed a potential crash (``AssertionError: wrong color format``) on Python 3.5 \ 
and prompt_toolkit 1.
* The ``completer`` command now correctly finds completion functions
  when nested inside of other functions.
* Fixed a crash when using the ``$XONSH_STDERR_PREFIX/POSTFIX`` with
  prompt_toolkit and Pygments 2.2.

v0.7.5
====================

**Fixed:**

* Recent command history in ptk2 prompt now returns most recently executed
  commands first (as expected)
* Fixed a regression taat prevented the readline backend from beeing used. This
  regression was caused by the new ansi-color names, which are incompatible with
  pygments 2.2.

v0.7.4
====================

**Added:**

* New ``xonsh-cat`` command line utility, which is a xonsh replacement
  for the standard UNIX ``cat`` command.
* The new ``xonsh.xoreutils.cat.cat_main()`` enables the ``xonsh.xoreutils.cat``
  module to be run as a command line utility.
* New ``CommandsCache.is_only_functional_alias()`` and
  ``CommandsCache.lazy_is_only_functional_alias()`` methods for determining if
  if a command name is only implemented as a function, and thus has no
  underlying binary command to execute.
* ``xonsh.xontribs.xontribs_load()`` is a new first-class API for loading
  xontribs via a Python function.
* ``$COMPLETIONS_DISPLAY`` now supports readline-like behavior on
  prompt-toolkit v2.

**Changed:**

* The xonsh Jupyter kernel now will properly redirect the output of commands
  such as ``git log``, ``man``, ``less`` and other paged commands to the client.
  This is done by setting ``$PAGER = 'cat'``. If ``cat`` is not available
  on the system, ``xonsh-cat`` is used instead.
* The ``setup()`` function for starting up a working xonsh has ``aliases``,
  ``xontribs``, and ``threadable_predictors`` as new additional keyword
  arguments for customizing the loading of xonsh.

**Fixed:**

* Fixed a bug with converting new PTK2 colors names to old names when using PTK1 \ 
or Jupyter
    as the shell type.
* ``CommandsCache.locate_binary()`` will now properly return None when
  ``ignore_alias=False`` and the command is only a functional alias,
  such as with ``cd``. Previously, it would return the name of the
  command.
* Fixed issue with ``$COMPLETIONS_DISPLAY`` raising an error on
  prompt-toolkit v2 when the value was not set to ``multi``.
* ValueError when executing ``vox list``

v0.7.3
====================

**Added:**

* Add the ``PROMPT_TOOLKIT_COLOR_DEPTH`` environment to xonsh default environment.
  Possible values are ``DEPTH_1_BIT``/``MONOCHROME``,
  ``DEPTH_4_BIT``/``ANSI_COLORS_ONLY``, ``DEPTH_8_BIT``/``DEFAULT``, or \ 
``DEPTH_24_BIT``/``TRUE_COLOR``.
  Note: not all terminals support all color depths.
* New way to fix unreadable default terminal colors on Windows 10. Windows 10
  now supports true color in the terminal, so if prompt toolkit 2 is
  installed Xonsh will use a style with hard coded colors instead of the
  default terminal colors. This will give the same color experience as on linux \ 
an mac.
  The behaviour can be disabled with ``$INTENSIFY_COLORS_ON_WIN``
  environment variable.
* New ``JupyterShell`` for interactive interfacing with Jupyter.

**Changed:**

* All ansicolor names used in styles have ben updated to the color names used by \ 
prompt_toolkit 2.
  The new names are are much easier to understand
  (e.g. ``ansicyan``/``ansibrightcyan`` vs. the old \ 
``#ansiteal``/``#ansiturquoise``). The names are automatically
  translated back when using prompt_toolkit 1.

**Removed:**

* Removed support for pygments < 2.2.

**Fixed:**

* New ansi-color names fixes the problem with darker colors using prompt_toolkit \ 
2 on windows.
* Fixed a problem with the color styles on prompt toolkit 2. The default pygment
  style is no longer merged into style selected in xonsh.
* The JupyterKernel has been fixed from a rather broken state.

v0.7.2
====================

**Added:**

* ``history show`` builtin now supports optional ``-0`` parameter that switches
  the output to null-delimited. Useful for piping history to external filters.

**Fixed:**

* If exception is raised in indir context manager, return to original directory
* Fixed issue that autocomplete menu does not display
  at terminal's maximum height

v0.7.1
====================

**Added:**

* Added feature to aliases.
* ``xonsh.lib.os.rmtree()`` an rmtree which works on windows properly (even with
  git)

**Changed:**

* set default value of ``$AUTO_SUGGEST_IN_COMPLETIONS=False``
* Use the ``pygments_cache.get_all_styles()`` function instead of
  interacting directly with pygments.

**Fixed:**

* Fixed issue with ``$ARG<N>`` varaibles not being passed to subprocesses \ 
correctly.
* Fixed issue with multiline string inside of ``@(expr)`` in
  unwrapped subprocesses. For example, the following now works::

    echo @("""hello
    mom""")
* ``CommandPipeline.output`` now does properly lazy, non-blocking creation of
  output string. ``CommandPipeline.out`` remains blocking.
* Fix regression in ``INTENSIFY_COLORS_ON_WIN`` functionality due to \ 
prompt_toolkit 2 update.
* Fixed issue that can't insert quotation marks and double quotes
  for completion.
* Fixed issue with ``SyntaxErrors`` being reported on the wrong line
  when a block of code contained multiple implicit subprocesses.
* ``prompt_toolkit >= 2`` will start up even if Pygments isn't present
* Fixed a regression with ``xonfig styles`` reporting ``AttributeError: module \ 
'pygments' has no attribute 'styles'``
* ptk dependent xontribs (that use custom keybindings) now work with both ptk1
  and ptk2
* Fixed async tokenizing issue on Python v3.7.

v0.7.0
====================

**Added:**

* Added a hook for printing a spcial display method on an object.
* Support for ``prompt_toolkit 2.0``
* The ``--shell-type`` (``$SHELL_TYPE``) may now be specified using
  shortcuts, such as ``rl`` for ``readline`` and ``ptk2`` for
  ``prompt_toolkit2``. See ``xonsh --help`` for a full listing
  of available aliases.

**Fixed:**

- Restored AUGASSIGN_OPS definition, which was inadvertently removed.

v0.6.10
====================

**Added:**

* ``xonsh.lib.subprocess.check_output`` as a ``check_output`` drop in

**Fixed:**

* ``xonsh.lib.subprocess.run`` doesn't change dirs unless asked

v0.6.9
====================

**Added:**

* New xonsh standard library ``xonsh.lib`` subpackage
* ``xonsh.lib.os.indir`` a context manager for temporarily entering into a directory
* ``xonsh.lib.subprocess.run`` and ``xonsh.lib.subprocess.check_call``
  subprocess stubs using ``xonsh`` as the backend

**Fixed:**

* update xoreutils._which.which() for python 3.x support.
* Fixed issue with incorrect strip lengths for prefixes with quotes in them
* Fixed bash script to also consider leading double quotes and not just single
  quotes
* Launching xonsh with prompt_toolkit version 2.x no longer fails, and instead \ 
fallsback to readline shell. This is a patch for until prompt_toolkit 2.x \ 
support is fully implemented. See PR #2570

v0.6.8
====================

**Fixed:**

* completions relative to ``CDPATH`` only trigger when used with ``cd``
* Import of ``ctypes.util`` is now explictly performed, as needed.
  Python v3.7 no longer imports this module along with ``ctypes``.
* Fixed issue with pygments-cache not properly generating a cache the first
  time when using prompt-toolkit. This was due to a lingering lazy import
  of ``pkg_resources`` that has been removed.
* Removed duplicate ``pip`` completer
* ``bash_completion`` no longer returns invalid prefix lengths for directories
  containing escape file names
* Fixed error when using redirection (e.g., >) on Windows.

v0.6.7
====================

**Changed:**

* Xonsh live example has been re-added back to the documentation.

**Fixed:**

* Fixed issue where xonsh would fail to properly return the terminal prompt
  (and eat up 100% CPU) after a failed subprocess command in interactive mode
  if ``$RAISE_SUBPROC_ERROR = True``.
* ``xonsh.tokenize.tok_name`` no longer mutates the standard library \ 
``tokenize.tok_name``.
  A copy is made on import instead.

v0.6.6
====================

**Added:**

* A multipurpose add method to EnvPath. For example:

  .. code-block:: xonshcon

    $ $PATH
    EnvPath(
    ['/usr/bin', '/usr/local/bin', '/bin']
    )
    $ $PATH.add('~/.local/bin', front=True); $PATH
    EnvPath(
    ['/home/user/.local/bin', '/usr/bin', '/usr/local/bin', '/bin']
    )
    $ $PATH.add('/usr/bin', front=True, replace=True); $PATH
    EnvPath(
    ['/usr/bin', '/home/user/.local/bin', '/usr/local/bin', '/bin']
    )
* Added ``pygments-cache`` project in order to reduce startup time.

**Changed:**

* built_ins.py, corrected a typo.
* test/test_news.py
  It now uses regex to verify the format of rst files
* Mercurial (``hg``) will no longer run in a threadable subprocess when
  it is run in interactive mode.

**Fixed:**

* issue 2313

v0.6.5
====================

**Added:**

* Wizard ``FileInsterter`` node class now has ``dumps()`` method for
  converting a mapping to a string to insert in a file.

**Fixed:**

* Fixed issue with ``xonfig wizard`` writer failing to write valid run control
  files for environment variables that are containter types. In particular,
  the storage of ``$XONSH_HISTORY_SIZE`` has been fixed.

v0.6.4
====================

**Changed:**

* Error message improved for sourcing foreign shells, when file cannot be found
  or there is a syntax error.

**Fixed:**

* Fixed issues with readline completer tab completing entries
  with spaces.
* Fixed ``xonsh.tools.columnize()`` bug the prevented single-row
  input from being columnized correctly.
* Now honor ASYNC and AWAIT as keywords in tokenizer on
  Python 3.7.

v0.6.3
====================

**Added:**

* Docs for using ``@(<expr>)`` as a way to run commands and a gotcha about
  list of strings vs single string expressions.
* Ubuntu versions which xonsh is packaged for (with xonsh versions)

**Changed:**

* When reporting errors without a traceback (i.e. ``$XONSH_SHOW_TRACEBACK = \ 
False``) and the error is a ``XonshError``
  the exception type is not longer printed.
* ``CommandPipeline.proc`` may now be ``None``, to accomodate when the process
  fails to even start (i.e. a missing command or incorrect permisions).

**Fixed:**

* The ``curl`` command will now be run in a thread, which prevents documents that
  do not end in a newline from writing over the next prompt and vice versa.
* Fix bug on Windows when ``PATHEXT`` environment variable did not exist.
  This also fixes building the xonsh documentation on Windows.
* Fixed a bug in the `free_cwd <http://xon.sh/xontribs.html#free-cwd>`__ \ 
Windows Xontrib, which caused the prompt to error if the current directory is
  deleted/renamed from an other process.
* Fixed issue with ``$XONSH_SHOW_TRACEBACK`` not being respected in subprocess
  mode when the command could not be found or had incorrect permissions.

v0.6.2
====================

**Added:**

* Release tarballs now include licenses and minimal documentation for xonsh and ply
* Wizard now has a ``FileInserter`` node that allows blocks to be
  inserted and replaced inside of a file. This adheres to conversion
  rules fordumping as provided on this node.
* New ``xonsh.wizard.StateVisitor.flatten()`` method for flattening the
  current state.

**Changed:**

* The xonsh startup wizard will only be triggered if no xonshrc files exist
  and the file ``~/.local/config/xonsh/no-wizard`` is not present.
* The ``xonfig wizard`` command will now run write out to the xonshrc file.
* Wizard nodes ``Save`` and ``Load`` had their names changed to ``SaveJSON``
  and ``LoadJSON``.

**Removed:**

* Static configuration is dead (``config.json``), long live run control \ 
(``xonshrc``)!
* The following evironment variables have been removed as they are no longer needed:
  ``$LOADED_CONFIG`` and ``$XONSHCONFIG``.
* Many support functions for static configuration have also been removed.

**Fixed:**

* Files starting with ``#`` are auto-escaped by TAB completion

v0.6.1
====================

**Added:**

* Support for MSYS2.
* New ``xonsh.main.setup()`` function for starting up xonsh in 3rd party
  packages.

**Changed:**

* Updated CircleCI to use circle version 2.0
* Replaced StopIteration with return in CommandPipeline.iterraw.
* Xonsh run control now also looks for the XDG-compliant file
  ``~/.config/xonsh/rc.xsh`` at startup.

**Fixed:**

* Clean out ``$LINES`` and ``$COLUMNS`` if set, preventing some programs from \ 
drawing weirdly
* cat from xoreutils now outputs in configured encoding
* Fixed hanging issue with pipelines whose middle processes exit before the
  first or last process.
* Fixed issue where xonsh would deduplicate spaces from bash autocompletions.
* Fixed failing redirections from stderr to stdout when the command
  being executed was a callable alias.
* Ensure that the ``free_cwd`` contrib can only be active on pure Windows.
* Made an exceptional case in ``iglobpath()`` more robust when Python globbing
  fails for due to strange scrandir issue.
* Unexpected process suspension on Cygwin and MSYS2.
* ``$XONSH_APPEND_NEWLINE`` will now default to True when in interactive mode.
* Fixed issue with uncalled lambdas being run in subproc mode.
* Lambda nodes not have proper line and column numbers in AST.
* Properly throw ``SyntaxError`` when no kwargs are defined
  in a kwarg-only function. This used to throw a
  ``TypeError: 'NoneType' object is not iterable``.
* Addressed issue where encoding and errors were None when teeing output.
* Commands like ``git c`` would complete to ``git 'checkout '`` because git adds \ 
an extra space
  to the end of the completion, which was being captured in the completion. \ 
Xonsh now fixes the git issue
  while retaining all whitespace when there is other internal whitespace.

v0.6.0
====================

**Added:**

* Added an alias command, matching bash's implementation, available as part of \ 
bashisms.
* New ``$AUTO_SUGGEST_IN_COMPLETIONS`` environment variable that enables/disables
  whether the auto-suggestion result appears in the tab completions.
* Added ``__add__()`` and ``__radd__()`` methods to ``EnvPath``.
* Xonsh now supports f-strings, as in Python v3.6+.
* Added ``ipython`` as unthreadable in command cache threadabilty predictors.
* Added ``whole_word_jumping`` xontrib
* Added ``$XONSH_APPEND_NEWLINE`` environment variable
* Support for PEP 515: Underscores in Numeric Literals
*  ``xonsh.color_tools.make_palette()``

   Simple rename of the pre-existing
   ``xonsh.color_tools.make_pallete()`` function.

*  ``xonsh.tools.decorator()`` function/method decorator.

   This allows for an API function to be annotated with a
   decorator that documents deprecation, while also tying in
   functionality that will warn a user that the function has
   been deprecated, and, raise an ``AssertionError`` if the
   function has passed its expiry date.
* New xontrib ``schedule`` (Xonsh Task Scheduler)

**Changed:**

* ``on_pre_prompt`` is now fired before prompt calculations are made, allowing \ 
modifications to the prompt.
* ``emacsclient`` will now return false in the threadable predictors.
* Improved the autopair behavior to match that of popular code editors.
* Moved the lazy ``pkg_resources`` package back to its original
  place. The will hopefully address some of the slowdown issues
  experiances on some platforms.
* When xonsh is used to run an ``xsh`` script, the ``xonshrc`` is not loaded
* Change in the behavior of the default predictor with binary analysis. The \ 
pattern ``libgpm`` is use, assuming when ``gpm`` is used the program is not \ 
threadable. This change solves issues with programs as ``links``.
* Error messages added to the ``source`` command if it is used with a language
  that is not xonsh or Python.

**Deprecated:**

*  ``xonsh.color_tools.make_pallette()``

   Deprecated in release 0.5.10 and will be removed in release 0.6.0.

**Fixed:**

* Now f-strings can be used inside @() without explicit enclosing command in ![]
* Fix for ``x, y, *z = ...`` unpacking.
* Git branch detection now correctly passes the environment down to the subprocess
  call.  This allows for branch detection when git is installed into a non-standard
  location.
* Escape regex characters in ``path_complete`` to avoid regex parsing errors for
  certain combinations of characters in path completer
* gistatus: Fixed hash not being shown when in detaced HEAD and there are no tags
* Fix branch colorization when ``git`` or ``hg`` are aliases.
* Fixed leftover ``.git/index.lock`` in ``gitstatus``
* Made JSON history loading more robust to corrupt files.
* Starting a new command with an open parentheses will no longer
  throw a traceback when ``$UPDATE_COMPLETIONS_ON_KEYPRESS`` is
  ``True``.
* Automatically wrapping subprocess calls would sometimes include
  semincolons and other line-ending tokens, rather than stopping at them.
  This has been fixed.
*  Numerous spelling errors in documentation, docstrings/comments, text
   strings and local variable names.

*  Spelling error in the ``xonsh.color_tools.make_pallete()`` public
   function declaration. This was fixed by renaming the function to
   ``xonsh.color_tools.make_palette()`` while maintaining a binding
   of ``make_pallete()`` to the new ``make_palette()`` in case users
   are already used to this API.
* Fixed issue with starting triple quote strings being run as a command.
* Fixed a problem with escaping charet (^) character for cmd.exe in the \ 
source-cmd function.
* ``EOF in multi-line statement`` errors were misreported as being on line 0.
  Now they are correctly reported as being on the last line of the file.

v0.5.12
====================

**Fixed:**

* Fixed ``release.xsh`` to prevent it from dirtying the repo on release and
  leading to an unwanted ``.dev`` suffix on the version number

v0.5.11
====================

**Added:**

* ``release.xsh`` creates a github release with the merged news entries as the
  release body

**Fixed:**

* ``xonfig`` now displays the proper value for "on linux"

v0.5.10
====================

**Added:**

* Added ``xclip`` and ``repo`` to default threadable predictors (Issues #2355
  and #2348)
* Pretty printing of the $PATH variable
* Add "fzf-widgets" xontrib which provides fuzzy search productivity \ 
widgets
  with on custom keybindings to xontrib list.
* New ``free_cwd`` xontrib for Windows, which prevent the current directory from \ 
being locked when the prompt is shown.
  This allows the other programs or Windows explorer to delete the current or \ 
parent directory. This is accomplished by
  resetting the CWD to the users home directory temporarily while the prompt is \ 
displayed. The directory is still locked
  while any commands are processed so xonsh still can't remove it own working \ 
directory.

**Changed:**

* Codecov threshold to 2%

**Removed:**

* On Windows environments variables in wrapped like``%foo%`` are no longer \ 
expanded automatically.

**Fixed:**

* Fixed the ``--rc`` option so it now runs xonsh with the specified rc file
* ``@$`` operator now functions properly when returned command is an alias
* Correct line continuation would not work on Windows if the line continuations \ 
were used
  in the ``xonshrc`` file.
* Fixed a regression in the Windows ``sudo`` command, that allows users to run \ 
elevated commands in xonsh.
* Fix echo command from xoreutils.
* Fixed a bug on Windows which meant xonsh wasn't using PATH environment \ 
variable but instead relying on a default
  value from the windows registry.

v0.5.9
====================

**Added:**

* Add ``Alt .`` keybinding to ``bashisms-xontrib`` to insert last argument of
  previous command into current buffer

**Fixed:**

* Fix crash when openSSH version of bash is on PATH on Windows.
* Added missing ensurers to make sure that ``bool`` env_vars are bools and
  ``int`` env_vars are integers:

  * ``DIRSTACK_SIZE``
  * ``EXPAND_ENV_VARS``
  * ``PUSHD_MINUS``
  * ``PUSHD_SILENT``
  * ``SUGGEST_COMMANDS``
  * ``SUGGEST_MAX_NUM``
  * ``SUGGEST_THRESHOLD``

v0.5.8
====================

**Changed:**

* The ``xonsh.platform.os_environ`` wrapper is  now case-insensitive and
  case-preserving on Windows.
* The private ``_TeeStd`` class will no longer attempt to write to a
  standard buffer after the tee has been 'closed' and the standard
  buffer returned to the system.

**Fixed:**

* Fixed a bug on py34 where os.scandir was used by accident.
* Line continuations (``\\``) is subproc mode will no longer consume the
  surrounding whitespace.
* Fixed a bug if foreign_shell name was not written in lower case in
  the static configuration file ``config.json``
* Fixed a regression on Windows where caused ``which`` reported that the
  ``PATH`` environment variable could not be found.
* Fixed issue with foregrounding jobs that were started in the background.
* Fixed that ``Ctrl-C`` crashes xonsh after running an invalid command.
* Fixed an potential ``ProcessLookupError`` issue, see #2288.

v0.5.7
====================

**Added:**

* New ``color_tools`` module provides basic color tools for converting
  to and from various formats as well as creating palettes from color
  strings.
* Redirections may now be used in string and list-of-strings
  aliases.
* Subprocess redirection may now forego the whitespace between the
  redirection and a file name.  For example,
  ``echo hello world >/dev/null``.
* Add a ``-P`` flag to the ``cd`` function in order to change directory and
  following symlinks.
* ``xonfig tutorial`` command to launch the http://xon.sh/tutorial in the
  browser.
* ``@(...)`` syntax now supports generators and tuples without parentheses.
* Sourcing foreign shells now have the ``--show`` option, which
  lets you see when script will be run, and the ``--dryrun``
  option which prevents the source from actually taking place.
  Xonsh's foreign shell API also added these keyword arguments.
* Subprocess mode now supports subshells. Place any xonsh
  code between two parentheses, e.g. ``(cmd)``, to run
  this command in a separate xonsh subprocess.
* Foreign shell aliases now have the ability to take extra arguments,
  if needed.
* Xonsh will issue a warning message when the current working
  directory has been remove out from under it and not replaced
  prior to running the next command.
* Line continuation backslashes are respected on Windows in the PTK shell if
  the backspace is is preceded by a space.
* Added ``ponysay`` as a command which will usually not run in a
  threaded mode in the commands cache.
* New ``jsonutils`` module available for serializing special
  xonsh objects to JSON.

**Changed:**

* The literal tokens ``and`` and ``or`` must be surrounded by
  whitespace to delimit subprocess mode. If they do not have
  whitespace on both sides in subproc mode, they are considered
  to be part of a command argument.
* The ``xontrib`` command is now flagged as unthreadable and will be
  run on the main Python thread. This allows xontribs to set signal
  handlers and other operations that require the main thread.
* nvim (Neovim) has been flagged as unthreadable
* The interactive prompt will now catch ``SystemExit`` and, instead
  of exiting the session, will refresh the prompt. This is the same
  process as for keyboard interrupts.
* Xonsh no longer launches the wizard for new users. Instead a welcome screen is
  shown which says how to launch the wizard.
* Added Windows ``expanduser()``-like function which prevents
  the expansion of ``~`` that are not followed by a path
  separator.
* Collecting xonsh history files was reported to have random runtime
  OSError failures. This exception is now handled, just in case. The
  The exception will still be printed in debug mode.
* ``Shell.stype`` has been renamed to ``Shell.shell_type``.
* The configuration wizard now displays the proper control sequence to leave
  the wizard at the to start of the wizard itself. Note that this is Ctrl+D for
  readline and Ctrl+C for prompt-toolkit.
* Callable alias proxy functions are now more friendly to
  ``functools.partial()``.
* ``prompt.vc.get_hg_branch`` now uses ``os.scandir`` to walk up the filetree
  looking for a ``.hg`` directory. This results in (generally) faster branch
  resolution compared to the subprocess call to ``hg root``.
* Xonsh's script and code caches will are now invalidated whenever the
  xonsh version changes for a given Python version.
* Autowrapping of subprocess globs has been improved to cover
  more cases that are ambiguous with Python syntax.
* Job control info when foregrounding or backgrounding jobs will now
  only be displayed when xonsh is in interactive mode.
* Enabled virtual terminal processing in the prompt-toolkit shell for Windows.

**Fixed:**

* 3rd party pygments styles (like solorized or monokailight) are now
  able to be used in xonsh. These styles are dynamically created upon
  first use, rather than being lazily loaded by xonsh.
* On Windows, ``os.environ`` is case insensitive. This would potentially
  change the case of environment variables set into the environment.
  Xonsh now uses ``nt.environ``, the case sensitive counterpart, to avoid
  these issues on Windows.
* Fix how ``$PWD`` is managed in order to work with symlinks gracefully
* ``history replay`` no longer barfs on ``style_name`` when setting up the
  environment
* ``Shell.shell_type`` is now properly set to the same value as ``$SHELL_TYPE``.
* Fixed ``source-zsh`` to work with zsh v5.2.
* Fixed issue where ``del (x, y)`` would raise a syntax error.
* Certain vim commands issue commands involving subshells,
  and this is now supported.
* Null bytes handed to Popen are now automatically escaped prior
  to running a subprocess. This prevents Popen from issuing
  embedded null byte exceptions.
* Xonsh will no longer crash is the current working directory is
  removed out from under it.
* Multiline strings can now be written in subprocess mode.
* PTK completions will now correctly deduplicate autosuggest completions
  and display completions values based on the cursor position.
* Fixed bug where trailing backspaces on Windows paths could be interpreted
  as line continuations characters. Now line continuation characters must be
  preceded by a space on Windows. This only applies to xonsh in interactive
  mode to ensure  scripts are portable.
* Importing ``*.xsh`` files will now respect the encoding listed in
  that file and properly fallback to UTF-8. This behaviour follows
  the rules described in PEP 263.
* Wizard is now able to properly serialize environment paths.

v0.5.6
====================

**Added:**

* New core utility function aliases (written in pure Python) are now
  available in ``xonsh.xoreutils``. These include: ``cat``, ``echo``,
  ``pwd``, ``tee``, ``tty``, and ``yes``. These are not enabled by default.
  Use the new ``coreutils`` xontrib to load them.
* CircleCI test post codecov run
* The ``trace`` will automatically disable color printing when
  stdout is not a TTY or stdout is captured.
* New ``jedi`` xontrib enables jedi-based tab completions when it is loaded.
  This supersedes xonsh's default Python-mode completer.
* The lexer has a new ``split()`` method which splits strings
  according to xonsh's rules for whitespace and quotes.
* New events for hooking into the Python import process are now available.
  You can now provide a handler for:

  - ``on_import_pre_find_spec``
  - ``on_import_post_find_spec``
  - ``on_import_pre_create_module``
  - ``on_import_post_create_module``
  - ``on_import_pre_exec_module``
  - ``on_import_post_exec_module``

**Changed:**

* The prompt toolkit shell's first completion will now be the
  current token from the auto-suggestion, if available.
* Sourcing foreign shells will now safely skip applying aliases
  with the same name as existing xonsh aliases by default.
  This prevents accidentally overwriting important xonsh standard
  aliases, such as ``cd``.

**Fixed:**

* Threadable prediction for subprocesses will now consult both the command
  as it was typed in and any resolved aliases.
* The first prompt will no longer print in the middle of the line if the user has
  already started typing.
* Windows consoles will now automatically enable virtual terminal processing
  with the readline shell, if available. This allows the full use of ANSI
  escape sequences.
* On the Windows readline shell, the tab-completion suppression prompt will no
  longer error out depending on what you press.
* Fixed issue with subprocess mode wrapping not respecting line continuation
  backslashes.
* Handle a bug where Bash On Windows causes platform.windows_bash_command()
  to raise CalledProcessError.
* Fixed issues pertaining to completing from raw string paths.
  This is particularly relevant to Windows, where raw strings
  are inserted in path completion.
* Replace deprecated calls to ``time.clock()`` by calls to
  ``time.perf_counter()``.
* Use ``clock()`` to set the start time of ``_timings`` in non-windows instead
  of manually setting it to ``0.0``.
* The ``trace`` utility will now correctly color output and not
  print extraneous newlines when called in a script.
* The ``@$(cmd)`` operator now correctly splits strings according to
  xonsh semantics, rather than just on whitespace using ``str.split()``.
* The ``mpl`` xontrib has been updated to improve matplotlib
  handling. If ``xontrib load mpl`` is run before matplotlib
  is imported and xonsh is in interactive mode, matplotlib
  will automatically enter interactive mode as well. Additionally,
  ``pyplot.show()`` is patched in interactive mode to be non-blocking.
  If a non-blocking show fails to draw the figure for some reason,
  a regular blocking version is called.
* Fixed issues like ``timeit ls`` causing OSError - "Inappropriate ioctl
  for device".
* Fixed a potential "OSError: [Errno 22] Invalid argument" to increase job
  control stability.

v0.5.5
====================

**Added:**

* New ``--rc`` command line option allows users to specify paths to run control
  files from the command line. This includes both xonsh-based and JSON-based
  configuration.
* New ``$UPDATE_COMPLETIONS_ON_KEYPRESS`` controls whether or not completions
  will automatically display and update while typing. This feature is only
  available in the prompt-toolkit shell.

**Changed:**

* Xonsh scripts now report ``__file__`` and ``__name__`` when run as scripts
  or sourced. These variables have the same meaning as they do in Python
  scripts.
* ``$XONSHRC`` and related configuration variables now accept JSON-based
  static configuration file names as elements. This unifies the two methods
  of run control to a single entry point and loading system.
* The ``xonsh.shell.Shell()`` class now requires that an Execer instance
  be explicitly provided to its init method. This class is no longer
  responsible for creating an execer an its dependencies.
* Moved decorators ``unthreadable``, ``uncapturable`` from
  ``xonsh.proc`` to ``xonsh.tools``.
* Some refactorings on jobs control.

**Deprecated:**

* The ``--config-path`` command line option is now deprecated in favor of
  ``--rc``.

**Removed:**

* ``xonsh.environ.DEFAULT_XONSHRC`` has been removed due to deprecation.
  For this value, please check the environment instead, or call
  ``xonsh.environ.default_xonshrc(env)``.

**Fixed:**

* Command pipelines that end in a callable alias are now interruptable with
  ``^C`` and the processes that are piped into the alias have their file handles
  closed. This should ensure that the entire pipeline is closed.
* Fixed issue where unthreadable subprocs were not allowed to be
  captured with the ``$(cmd)`` operator.
* The ``ProcProxy`` class (unthreadable aliases) was not being executed and would
  hang if the alias was capturable. This has been fixed.
* Fixed a ``tcsetattr: Interrupted system call`` issue when run xonsh scripts.
* Fixed issue with ``ValueError`` being thrown from ``inspect.signature()``
  when called on C-extension callables in tab completer.
* Fixed issue that ``ls | less`` crashes on Mac.
* Threadable prediction was incorrectly based on the user input command, rather than
  the version where aliases have been resolved. This has been corrected.

v0.5.4
====================

**Added:**

* Add alias ``xip`` ("kip") so that xonsh's Python environment \ 
(whatever that is) can be modified.
* HistoryEntry, a SimpleNamespace object that represents a command in history.
* ``xonsh.completers.bash_completion`` module
* Added option to report timing information of xonsh startup times. Start xonsh
  with the ``--timings`` flag to use the feature.
* The Python tab completer will now complete the argument names of functions
  and other callables.
* Uptime module added to ``xonsh.xoreutils``. This can report the system
  boot time and up time.
* The environment variable ``XONSH_HISTORY_BACKEND`` now also supports a
  value of class type or a History Backend instance.
* ``on_envvar_new`` event that fires after a new envvar is created.
* ``on_envvar_change`` event that fires after an envvar is changed.

**Changed:**

* history indexing api to be more simple, now returns HistoryEntry.
* Decoupled ``bash_completion`` from xonsh project and added shim back to
  xonsh.
* The JSON history backend will now unlock history files that were created
  prior to the last reboot.

**Fixed:**

* Fixed broken bash completions on Windows if 'Windows Subsystem for Linux' is \ 
installed.
* Readline history would try to read the first element of history prior to
  actually loading any history. This caused an exception to be raised on
  Windows at xonsh startup when using pyreadline.
* Fixed issue with readline tab completer overwriting initial prefix in
  some instances.
* Fixed issue wherein if ``git`` or (presumably) ``hg`` are aliased, then branch
  information no longer appears in the ``$PROMPT``
* Fixed an issue with commands that background themselves (such as
  ``gpg-connect-agent``) not being able to be run from within xonshrc.

v0.5.3
====================

**Added:**

* Tab completion xontrib for python applications based on click framework.
* Added ``on_transform_command`` event for pre-processing that macros can't handle.
* Autodetection of backgroundability by binary analysis on POSIX.
* New argument ``expand_user=True`` to ``tools.expand_path``.
* New ``$COMPLETION_QUERY_LIMIT`` environment variable for setting the
  number of completions above which the user will be asked if they wish to
  see the potential completions.
* Users may now redirect stdout to stderr in subprocess mode.

**Changed:**

* The ``Block`` and ``Functor`` context managers from ``xonsh.contexts`` have been
  rewritten to use xonsh's macro capabilities. You must now enter these via the
  ``with!`` statement, e.g. ``with! Block(): pass``.
* The ``distributed`` xontrib now needs to use the ``with!`` statement, since it
  relies on ``Functor``.
* ``telnet`` has been flagged as unthreadable.
* When ``$DYNAMIC_CWD_ELISION_CHAR`` is non empty and the last dir of cwd is too
  long and shortened, the elision char is added at the end.
* ``pygments`` is no longer a strict dependency of the ``prompt_toolkit``
  backend. If ``pygments`` is not installed, the PTK backend will use the
  default ansi color settings from the terminal. Syntax highlighting requires
  that ``pygments`` is installed.
* Events are now keyword arguments only
* Restored ``on_precommand`` to its original signature.
* Move ``built_ins.expand_path`` to ``tools.expand_path``.
* Rename ``tools.expandpath`` to ``tools._expandpath``.
* Added ``gvim`` command to unthreadable predictors.
* The ``source`` alias now passes ``$ARGS`` down to file it is sourcing.

**Removed:**

* ``XonshBlockError`` has been removed, since it no longer serves a purpose.

**Fixed:**

* ``PopenThread`` will now re-issue SIGINT to the main thread when it is
  received.
* Fixed an issue that using sqlite history backend does not kill unfinished
  jobs when quitting xonsh with a second "exit".
* Fixed an issue that xonsh would fail over to external shells when
  running .xsh script which raises exceptions.
* Fixed an issue with ``openpty()`` returning non-unix line endings in its buffer.
  This was causing git and ssh to fail when xonsh was used as the login shell on the
  server. See https://mail.python.org/pipermail/pytho … 50460.html for
  more details.
* Restored the ability to ^Z and ``fg`` processes on posix platforms.
* CommandPipelines were not guaranteed to have been ended when the return code
  was requested. This has been fixed.
* Introduce path expansion in ``is_writable_file`` to fix
  ``$XONSH_TRACEBACK_LOGFILE=~/xonsh.log``.
* Backgrounding a running process (^Z) now restores ECHO mode to the terminal
  in cases where the subprocess doesn't properly restore itself. A major instance
  of this behaviour is Python's interactive interpreter.
* Readline backend would not ask the user to confirm the printing of completion
  options if they numbered above a certain value. Instead they would be dumped to
  the screen. This has been fixed.
* Jupyter kernel was no longer properly running subprocess commands.
  This has been fixed.
* The filename is applied to the target of the ``source`` alias, providing better
  tracebacks.

v0.5.2
====================

**Added:**

* Added ``weechat`` to default predictors
* ``$DYNAMIC_CWD_ELISION_CHAR`` environment variable to control how a shortened
  path is displayed.

**Changed:**

* ``_ret_code`` function of ``prompt_ret_code`` xontrib return now ``None`` when
  return code is 0 instead of empty string allowing more customization of prompt
  format.

**Fixed:**

* Minor Python completer token counting bug fix.
* multiline syntax error in PTK shell due to buffer not being reset
* Segfaults and other early exit signals are now reported correctly,
  again.
* ``tests/bin/{cat,pwd,wc}`` shebang changed to python3

v0.5.1
====================

**Fixed:**

* Fixed xonfig raising error when xonsh is not installed from source.

v0.5.0
====================

**Added:**

* $XONTRIB_MPL_MINIMAL environment variable can be set to change if plots are \ 
minimalist or as-seen
* xontrib-mpl now supports iTerm2 inline image display if iterm2_tools python \ 
package is installed

  starting up.
* Added entry to customization faq re: ``dirs`` alias (#1452)
* Added entry to customization faq re: tab completion selection (#1725)
* Added entry to customization faq re: libgcc core dump (#1160)
* Section about quoting in the tutorial.
* The ``$VC_HG_SHOW_BRANCH`` environment variable to control whether to hide the \ 
hg branch in the prompt.
* xonfig now contains the latest git commit date if xonsh installed
  from source.
* Alt+Enter will execute a multiline code block irrespective of cursor position
* Windows now has the ability to read output asynchronously from
  the console.
* Use `doctr <https://drdoctr.github.io/doctr/>`_ to deploy dev docs to \ 
github pages
* New ``xonsh.proc.uncapturable()`` decorator for declaring that function
  aliases should not be run in a captured subprocess.
* New history backend sqlite.
* Prompt user to install xontrib package if they try to load an uninstalled
  xontrib
* Callable aliases may now take a final ``spec`` argument, which is the
  corresponding ``SubprocSpec`` instance.
* New ``bashisms`` xontrib provides additional Bash-like syntax, such as ``!!``.
  This xontrib only affects the command line, and not xonsh scripts.
* Tests that create testing repos (git, hg)
* New subprocess specification class ``SubprocSpec`` is used for specifying
  and manipulating subprocess classes prior to execution.
* New ``PopenThread`` class runs subprocesses on a a separate thread.
* New ``CommandPipeline`` and ``HiddenCommandPipeline`` classes manage the
  execution of a pipeline of commands via the execution of the last command
  in the pipeline. Instances may be iterated and stream lines from the
  stdout buffer. These pipelines read from the stdout & stderr streams in a
  non-blocking manner.
* ``$XONSH_STORE_STDOUT`` is now available on all platforms!
* The ``CommandsCache`` now has the ability to predict whether or not a
  command must be run in the foreground using ``Popen`` or may use a
  background thread and can use ``PopenThread``.
* Callable aliases may now use the full gamut of functions signatures:
  ``f()``, ``f(args)``,  ``f(args, stdin=None)``,
  ``f(args, stdin=None, stdout=None)``, and `
  ``f(args, stdin=None, stdout=None, stderr=None)``.
* Uncaptured subprocesses now receive a PTY file handle for stdout and
  stderr.
* New ``$XONSH_PROC_FREQUENCY`` environment variable that specifies how long
  loops in the subprocess framework should sleep. This may be adjusted from
  its default value to improved performance and mitigate "leaky" pipes on
  slower machines.
* ``Shift+Tab`` moves backwards in completion dropdown in prompt_toolkit
* PromptFormatter class that holds all the related prompt methods
* PromptFormatter caching when building the prompt
* p-strings: ``p'/foo/bar'`` is short for ``pathlib.Path('/foo/bar')``
* byte strings: prefixes other than ``b'foo'`` (eg, ``RB'foo'``) now work
* Backticks for regex or glob searches now support an additional modifier
  ``p``, which causes them to return Path objects instead of strings.
* New ``BOTTOM_TOOLBAR`` environment variable to control a bottom toolbar as \ 
specified in prompt-toolkit
* New ``$XONSH_STDERR_PREFIX`` and ``$XONSH_STDERR_POSTFIX`` environment
  variables allow the user to print a prompt-like string before and after
  all stderr that is seen. For example, say that you would like stderr
  to appear on a red background, you might set
  ``$XONSH_STDERR_PREFIX = "{BACKGROUND_RED}"`` and
  ``$XONSH_STDERR_PREFIX = "{NO_COLOR}"``.
* New ``xonsh.pyghooks.XonshTerminal256Formatter`` class patches
  the pygments formatter to understand xonsh color token semantics.
* Load events are now available
* New events added: ``on_post_init``, ``on_pre_cmdloop``, ``on_pre_rc``, \ 
``on_post_rc``, ``on_ptk_create``
* Completion for ``xonsh`` builtin functions ``xontrib`` and ``xonfig``
* Added a general customization FAQ page to the docs to collect various
  tips/tricks/fixes for common issues/requests
* ``test_single_command`` and ``test_redirect_out_to_file`` tests in \ 
``test_integrations``
* Add note that the target of redirection should be separated by a space.

**Changed:**

* CircleCI now handles flake8 checks
* Travis doesn't allow failures on nightly
* ``get_hg_branch`` runs ``hg root`` to find root dir and check if we're in repo
* The default style will now use the color keywords (#ansired, #ansidarkred)
  to set colors that follow the terminal color schemes. Currently, this requires
  prompt_toolkit master (>1.0.8) and pygments master (2.2) to work correctly.
* ``vox activate`` now accepts relative directories.
* Updated the effectivity of ``$XONSH_DEBUG`` on debug messages.
* Better documentation on how to get nice colors in Windows' default console
* All custom prompt_toolkit key binding filters now declared with the
  ``@Condition`` decorator
* The style for the prompt toolkit completion menu is now lightgray/darkgray \ 
instead of turquoise/teal
* landscape.io linting now ignores ply directory
* ``history`` help messages to reflect subcommand usage
* Quote all paths when completion if any of the paths needs be quoted,
  so that bash can automatically complete to the max prefix of the paths.
* Tee'd reads now occur in 1kb chunks, rather than character-by-character.
* The ``which`` alias no longer has a trailing newline if it is captured.
  This means that ``$(which cmd)`` will simply be the path to the command.
* The following commands are, by default, predicted to be not threadable
  in some circumstances:

    * bash
    * csh
    * clear
    * clear.exe
    * cls
    * cmd
    * ex
    * fish
    * htop
    * ksh
    * less
    * man
    * more
    * mutt
    * nano
    * psql
    * ranger
    * rview
    * rvim
    * scp
    * sh
    * ssh
    * startx
    * sudo
    * tcsh
    * top
    * vi
    * view
    * vim
    * vimpager
    * xo
    * xonsh
    * zsh
* The ``run_subproc()`` function has been replaced with a new implementation.
* Piping between processes now uses OS pipes.
* ``$XONSH_STORE_STDIN`` now uses ``os.pread()`` rather than ``tee`` and a new
  file.
* The implementation of the ``foreground()`` decorator has been moved to
  ``unthreadable()``.
* ``voxapi.Vox`` now supports ``pathlib.Path`` and ``PathLike`` objects as \ 
virtual environment identifiers
* Renamed FORMATTER_DICT to PROMPT_FIELDS
* BaseShell instantiates PromptFormatter
* readline/ptk shells use PromptFormatter
* Updated the bundled version of ``ply`` to current master available
* vended ``ply`` is now a git subtree to help with any future updates
* ``WHITE``  color keyword now means lightgray and ``INTENSE_WHITE`` completely white
* Removed ``add_to_shell`` doc section from ``*nix`` install pages and instead
  relocated it to the general customization page
* Moved a few ``*nix`` customization tips from the linux install page to the general
  customization page

**Removed:**

* coverage checks
* ``CompletedCommand`` and ``HiddenCompletedCommand`` classes have been removed
  in favor of ``CommandPipeline`` and ``HiddenCommandPipeline``.
* ``SimpleProcProxy`` and ``SimpleForegroundProcProxy`` have been removed
  in favor of a more general mechanism for dispatching callable aliases
  implemented in the ``ProcProxyThread``  and ``ProcProxy`` classes.
* ``test_run_subproc.py`` in favor of ``test_integrations.py``
* Unused imports in many tests
* Many duplicated tests (copypasta)

**Fixed:**

* xontrib-mpl now preserves the figure and does not permanently alter it for viewing
* Fix up small pep8 violations
* Fixed a bug where some files are not showing using bash completer
* Fixed some issues with subprocess capturing aliases that it probably
  shouldn't.
* ``safe_readable()`` now checks for ``ValueError`` as well.
* The scroll bars in the PTK completions menus are back.
* Jupyter kernel installation now respects the setuptools ``root`` parameter.
* Fix ``__repr__`` and ``__str__`` methods of ``SubprocSpec`` so they report
  correctly
* Fixed the message printed when which is unable to find the command.
* Fixed a handful of sphinx errors and warnings in the docs
* Fixed many PEP8 violations that had gone unnoticed
* Fix failure to detect an Anaconda python distribution if the python was \ 
install from the conda-forge channel.
* current_branch will try and locate the vc binary once
* May now Crtl-C out of an infinite loop with a subprocess, such as
  ```while True: sleep 1``.
* Fix for stdin redirects.
* Backgrounding works with ``$XONSH_STORE_STDOUT``
* ``PopenThread`` blocks its thread from finishing until command has completed
  or process is suspended.
* Added a minimum time buffer time for command pipelines to check for
  if previous commands have executed successfully.  This is helpful
  for pipelines where the last command takes a long time to start up,
  such as GNU Parallel. This also checks to make sure that output has occurred.
  This includes piping 2+ commands together and pipelines that end in
  unthreadable commands.
* ``curr_branch`` reports correctly when ``git config status.short true`` is used
* ``pip`` completion now filters results by prefix
* Fixed streaming ``!(alias)`` repr evaluation where bytes where not
  streamed.
* Aliases that begin with a comma now complete correctly (no spurious comma)
* Use ``python3`` in shebang lines for compatibility with distros that still use \ 
Python 2 as the default Python
* STDOUT is only stored when ``$XONSH_STORE_STDOUT=True``
* Fixed issue with alias redirections to files throwing an OSError because
  the function ProcProxies were not being waited upon.
* Fixed issue with callable aliases that happen to call sys.exit() or
  raise SystemExit taking out the whole xonsh process.
* Safely flushes file handles on threaded buffers.
* Proper default value and documentation for ``$BASH_COMPLETIONS``
* Fixed readline completer issues on paths with spaces
* Fix bug in ``argvquote()`` functions used when sourcing batch files on \ 
Windows. The bug meant an extra backslash was added to UNC paths.
  Thanks to @bytesemantics for spotting it, and @janschulz for fixing the issue.
* pep8, lint and refactor in pytest style of ``test_ptk_multiline.py``, \ 
``test_replay.py``
* Tab completion of aliases returned a upper cased alias on Windows.
* History show all action now also include current session items.
* ``proc.stream_stderr`` now handles stderr that doesn't have buffer attribute
* Made ``history show`` result sorted.
* Fixed issue that ``history gc`` does not delete empty history files.
* Standard stream tees have been fixed to accept the possibility that
  they may not be backed by a binary buffer. This includes the pipeline
  stdout tee as well as the shell tees.
* Fixed a bug when the pygments plugin was used by third party editors etc.
* CPU usage of ``PopenThread`` and ``CommandPipeline`` has been brought
  down significantly.

  override xonsh aliases with the same name.

* Warning on tutorial about foreign aliases being ignored if a xonsh alias
  exist with the same name if not FOREIGN_ALIASES_OVERRIDE.
* The prompt-toolkit shell now auto-inserts matching parentheses, brackets, and \ 
quotes. Enabled via the ``XONSH_AUTOPAIR`` environment variable
* Better syntax highlights in prompt-toolkit, including valid command / path \ 
highlighting, macro syntax highlighting, and more
* More info on tutorial about history interaction
* Entry on bash_to_xsh
* Macro context managers are now available via the ``with!``
  syntax.

**Changed:**

* Devguide reflects the current process of releasing through ``release.xsh``
* moved ``which`` from ``xonsh.aliases`` into ``xoreutils.which``
* ``xonsh.prompt.gitstatus.gitstatus`` now returns a namedtuple

* implementation of ``xonsh.prompt.vc_branch.get_git_branch`` and
  ``xonsh.prompt.vc_branch.git_dirty_working_directory`` to use 'git status \ 
--procelain'
* moved prompt formatting specific functions from ``xonsh.environ``
  to ``xonsh.prompt.base``
* All prompt formatter functions moved to ``xonsh.prompt`` subpackage
* Printing the message about foreign aliases being ignored happens only
  if XONSH_DEBUG is set.
* Use ``SetConsoleTitleW()`` on Windows instead of a process call.
* Tutorial to reflect the current history command argument functionality
* Macro function arguments now default to ``str``, rather than ``eval``,
  for consistency with other parts of the macro system.

**Removed:**

* aliases that use '!' in their name cause they clash with the macro syntax

**Fixed:**

* Fix regression where bash git completions where not loaded
  automatically when GitForWindows is installed.
* More tokens are now supported in subproc args, such as ``==``.
* Python completions now work without space delimiters, e.g. ``a=matpl<TAB>``
  will complete to ``a=matplotlib``
* Parser would fail on nested, captured suprocess macros. Now, it works,
  hooray!?
* now fires chdir event if OS change in working directory is detected.
* ``xonsh.prompt.vc_branch.git_dirty_working_directory``
   uses ``porcelain`` option instead of using the bytestring
   ``nothing to commit`` to find out if a git directory is dirty
* Fix bug where know commands where not highlighted on windows.
* Fixed completer showing executable in upper case on windows.
* Fixed issue where tilde expansion was occurring more than once before an
  equals sign.
* test_dirstack test_cdpath_expansion leaving stray testing dirs
* Better completer display for long completions in prompt-toolkit
* Automatically append newline to target of ``source`` alias, so that it may
  be exec'd.
* test_news fails when single graves around word

* Completion now works on subcommands after pipe, ``&&``, ``||`` and so on.
* cd . and cd <singleCharacter> now work.  Fix indexerror in AUTO_PUSHD \ 
case, too.
* Fixed issue with accidentally wrapping generators inside of function calls.
* History indexing with string returns most recent command.

v0.4.6
====================

**Added:**

* New option ``COMPLETIONS_CONFIRM``. When set, ``<Enter>`` is used to confirm
  completion instead of running command while completion menu is displayed.
* NetBSD is now supported.
* Macro function calls are now available. These use a Rust-like
  ``f!(arg)`` syntax.
* Macro subprocess call now available with the ``echo! x y z``
  syntax.
* A new `event subsystem <http://xon.sh/tutorial_events.html>`_ has been added.
* howto install sections for Debian/Ubuntu and Fedora.
* ``History`` methods ``__iter__`` and ``__getitem__``

* ``tools.get_portions`` that yields parts of an iterable
* Added a py.test plugin to collect ``test_*.xsh`` files and run ``test_*()`` \ 
functions.
* ``__repr__`` and ``__str__`` magic method on LazyObject

**Changed:**

* ``create_module`` implementation on XonshImportHook
* Results of the ``bash`` tab completer are now properly escaped (quoted) when \ 
necessary.
* Foreign aliases that match xonsh builtin aliases are now ignored with a warning.
* ``prompt_toolkit`` completions now only show the rightmost portion
  of a given completion in the dropdown
* The value of ``'none'`` is no longer allowed for ``$SHELL_TYPE`` just during \ 
the initial
  load from the environment. ``-D``, later times, and other sources still work.
* ``yacc_debug=True`` now load the parser on the same thread that the
  Parser instance is created. ``setup.py`` now uses this synchronous
  form as it was causing the parser table to be missed by some package
  managers.
* Tilde expansion for the home directory now has the same semantics as Bash.
  Previously it only matched leading tildes.
* Context sensitive AST transformation now checks that all names in an
  expression are in scope. If they are, then Python mode is retained. However,
  if even one is missing, subprocess wrapping is attempted. Previously, only the
  left-most name was examined for being within scope.
* ``dirstack.pushd`` and ``dirstack.popd`` now handle UNC paths (of form \ 
``\\<server>\<share>\...``), but only on Windows.
  They emulate behavior of `CMD.EXE` by creating a temporary mapped drive letter \ 
(starting from z: down) to replace
  the ``\\<server>\<share>`` portion of the path, on the ``pushd`` \ 
and unmapping the drive letter when all references
  to it are popped.

* And ``dirstack`` suppresses this temporary drive mapping funky jive if \ 
registry entry
  ``HKCU\software\microsoft\command processor\DisableUNCCheck`` (or HKLM\...) is \ 
a DWORD value 1.  This allows Xonsh
  to show the actual UNC path in your prompt string and *also* allows subprocess \ 
commands invoking `CMD.EXE` to run in
  the expected working directory. See \ 
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/156276 to satisfy any lingering \ 
curiosity.
* ``lazy_locate_binary`` handles binary on different drive letter than current \ 
working directory (on Windows).
* ``_curr_session_parser`` now iterates over ``History``
* New implementation of bash completer with better performance and compatibility.
* ``$COMPLETIONS_BRACKETS`` is now available to determine whether or not to
  include opening brackets in Python completions
* ``xonsh.bat`` tries to use `pylauncher \ 
<https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0397/>`_ when available.

**Removed:**

* ``History`` method ``show``
* ``_hist_get_portion`` in favor of ``tools.get_portions``
* Unused imports in proc, flake8.

**Fixed:**

* xonsh modules imported now have the __file__ attribute
* Context sensitive AST transformer was not adding argument names to the
  local scope. This would then enable extraneous subprocess mode wrapping
  for expressions whose leftmost name was function argument. This has been
  fixed by properly adding the argument names to the scope.
* Foreign shell functions that are mapped to empty filenames no longer
  receive aliases since they can't be found to source later.
* Correctly preserve arguments given to xon.sh, in case there are quoted ones.
* Environment variables in subprocess mode were not being expanded
  unless they were in a sting. They are now expanded properly.
* Fixed a bug that prevented xonsh from running scripts with code caching disabled.
* Text of instructions to download missing program now does not get off and
  appears in whole.
* Fix some test problems when win_unicode_console was installed on windows.
* Fixed bug that prompt string and ``$PWD`` failed to track change in actual \ 
working directory if the
  invoked Python function happened to change it (e.g via ```os.chdir()```.  Fix \ 
is to update ``$PWD``
  after each command in ```BaseShell.default()```.
* The interactive prompt now correctly handles multiline strings.
* ``cd \\<server>\<share>`` now works when $AUTO_PUSHD is set, \ 
either creating a temporary mapped drive or simply
  setting UNC working directory based on registry ``DisableUNCCheck``.  However, \ 
if $AUTO_PUSHD is not set and UNC
  checking is enabled (default for Windows), it issues an error message and \ 
fails.  This improves on prior behavior,
  which would fail to change the current working directory, but would set $PWD \ 
and prompt string to the UNC path,
  creating false expectations.
* fix parsing for tuple of tuples (like `(),()`)
* ``sys.stdin``, ``sys.stdout``, ``sys.stderr`` no longer complete with
  opening square brackets
* xonsh now properly handles syntax error messages arising from using values in \ 
inappropriate contexts (e.g., ``del 7``).

Import xonsh-0.4.5 as shells/xonsh

xonsh is a Python-ish, BASHwards-looking shell language and command prompt. The
language is a superset of Python 3.4+ with additional shell primitives. xonsh
(pronounced conch) is meant for the daily use of experts and novices alike.
