./shells/nushell, New type of shell

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.44.0, Package name: nushell-0.44.0, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Hello, and welcome to the Nushell project. The goal of this project is to take
the Unix philosophy of shells, where pipes connect simple commands together, and
bring it to the modern style of development.

Nu takes cues from a lot of familiar territory: traditional shells like bash,
advanced shells like PowerShell, functional programming, systems programming,
and more. But rather than trying to be the jack of all trades, Nu focuses its
energy on doing a few things well:
-Create a flexible cross-platform shell with a modern feel
-Allow you to mix and match commandline applications with a shell that
understands the structure of your data
-Have the level of UX polish that modern CLI apps provide

The easiest way to see what Nu can do is to start with some examples, so let's
dive in, https://www.nushell.sh/book/

Log message:
shells/nushell: update to 0.40.0

Today, we're releasing 0.40 of Nu. This release is includes better table imports
and much smaller release size.

What's New
-Detecting columns (jt)
 Nushell now supports a new command: detect columns. This command is intended as
 an easy way to handle tabular data that's written as text. Commands like ps,
 ls -l, netstat, df, and others commonly output their output as text.
 With detect columns, you can run the external command, and convert them into
 Nushell's tabular data format.

-Smaller binaries (fdncred)
 The size of the Nushell release binaries has come up as regular feedback from
 Nushell users. "Why does the shell have to be so big?" And we've \ 
heard you!
 Today's release now uses a combination of strip and upx to bring considerable
 savings in binary size. The Linux release (plugins incl.) has dropped from
 475mb to 58mb(!!), making it 88% smaller. We're seeing similar improvements in
 the sizes of the macOS and Windows releases.

Log message:
shells/nushell: update to 0.39.0

Today, we're releasing 0.39 of Nu. This release is a bugfix release of 0.38.

What's New:
-History file is now removed when the history is cleared (fdncred)
-HTML selector has a regression fixed (lucassmmg)
-Unused dependencies were removed (lucassmmg)
-Updated clippy warnings were fixed (jt)

Engine-q progress
You'll notice that this release is pretty light, only a set of fixes on 0.38.
his is because our energy is now largely focused on engine-q.
We're excited to get this in front of you.

Just to tease a little of what will be possible, this week we added support for
processing streams in parallel in engine-q using a new par-each command.
We'll talk more about this as it develops.
