Branch: CURRENT, Version: 3.6.1nb1, Package name: fish-3.6.1nb1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

fish is a user friendly command line shell for UNIX-like operating
systems, written mainly with interactive use in mind. It differs
from other shells in that it only provides as few commands as
built-ins as possible and has a daemon which allows it to have
shared variables and command-line history between shell instances.
It also features feature-rich tab-completion and has command-line
syntax highlighting.

fish: remove incorrect workaround

libterminfo symbols are used directly by fish, so this is not
a problem in pkgsrc or curses.

Fixed properly in patch-cmake_ConfigureChecks.cmake

fish: fix build on NetBSD-current

fish uses symbols from libterminfo, so it needs to link against it.

Log message:
shells/fish: fix ncurses linkage, from Chavdar Ivanov and RVP in PR 57365

Only add -lterminfo when using base curses on NetBSD, not ncurses.
Also put it in LIBS, not LDFLAGS :-)

The previous behavior gives a bad build, but only with non-default
settings, so I'm not bumping the revision.

XXX: the magic to add -lterminfo probably belongs in curses.bl3.mk

fish: update to 3.6.1.

fish 3.6.1 (released March 25, 2022)

This release of fish contains a number of fixes for problems identified in fish \ 
3.6.1, as well as some enhancements.

Notable improvements and fixes
- ``abbr --erase`` now also erases the universal variables used by the old abbr \ 
function. That means::
    abbr --erase (abbr --list)

  can now be used to clean out all old abbreviations (:issue:`9468`).
- ``abbr --add --universal`` now warns about ``--universal`` being \ 
non-functional, to make it easier to detect old-style ``abbr`` calls \ 

Deprecations and removed features
- The Web-based configuration for abbreviations has been removed, as it was not \ 
functional with the changes abbreviations introduced in 3.6.0 (:issue:`9460`).

Scripting improvements
- ``abbr --list`` no longer escapes the abbr name, which is necessary to be able \ 
to pass it to ``abbr --erase`` (:issue:`9470`).
- ``read`` will now print an error if told to set a read-only variable, instead \ 
of silently doing nothing (:issue:`9346`).
- ``set_color -v`` no longer crashes fish (:issue:`9640`).

Interactive improvements
- Using ``fish_vi_key_bindings`` in combination with fish's ``--no-config`` mode \ 
works without locking up the shell (:issue:`9443`).
- The history pager now uses more screen space, usually half the screen \ 
- Variables that were set while the locale was C (the default ASCII-only locale) \ 
will now properly be encoded if the locale is switched (:issue:`2613`, \ 
- Escape during history search restores the original command line again (fixing \ 
a regression in 3.6.0).
- Using ``--help`` on builtins now respects the ``$MANPAGER`` variable, in \ 
preference to ``$PAGER`` (:issue:`9488`).
- :kbd:`Control-G` closes the history pager, like other shells (:issue:`9484`).
- The documentation for the ``:``, ``[`` and ``.`` builtin commands can now be \ 
looked up with ``man`` (:issue:`9552`).
- fish no longer crashes when searching history for non-ASCII codepoints \ 
case-insensitively (:issue:`9628`).
- The :kbd:`Alt-S` binding will now also use ``please`` if available (:issue:`9635`).
- Themes that don't specify every color option can be installed correctly in the \ 
Web-based configuration (:issue:`9590`).
- Compatibility with Midnight Commander's prompt integration has been improved \ 
- A spurious error, noted when using fish in Google Drive directories under WSL \ 
2, has been silenced (:issue:`9550`).
- Using ``read`` in ``fish_greeting`` or similar functions will not trigger an \ 
infinite loop (:issue:`9564`).
- Compatibility when upgrading from old versions of fish (before 3.4.0) has been \ 
improved (:issue:`9569`).

Improved prompts
- The git prompt will compute the stash count to be used independently of the \ 
informative status (:issue:`9572`).

- Added completions for:
  - ``apkanalyzer`` (:issue:`9558`)
  - ``neovim`` (:issue:`9543`)
  - ``otool``
  - ``pre-commit`` (:issue:`9521`)
  - ``proxychains`` (:issue:`9486`)
  - ``scrypt`` (:issue:`9583`)
  - ``stow`` (:issue:`9571`)
  - ``trash`` and helper utilities ``trash-empty``, ``trash-list``, \ 
``trash-put``, ``trash-restore`` (:issue:`9560`)
  - ``ssh-copy-id`` (:issue:`9675`)
- Improvements to many completions, including the speed of completing \ 
directories in WSL 2 (:issue:`9574`).
- Completions using ``__fish_complete_suffix`` are now offered in the correct \ 
order, fixing a regression in 3.6.0 (:issue:`8924`).
- ``git`` completions for ``git-foo``-style commands was restored, fixing a \ 
regression in 3.6.0 (:issue:`9457`).
- File completion now offers ``../`` and ``./`` again, fixing a regression in \ 
3.6.0 (:issue:`9477`).
- The behaviour of completions using ``__fish_complete_path`` matches standard \ 
path completions (:issue:`9285`).

Other improvements
- Improvements and corrections to the documentation.

For distributors
- fish 3.6.1 builds correctly on Cygwin (:issue:`9502`).
