  • SECURITY: make unset HISTFILE actually work
  • Document some more issues with the current history code
  • Remove some unused code
  • RCSID-only sync with OpenBSD, for bogus and irrelevant changes
  • Also disable field splitting for alias 'local= ypeset'
  • Fix read -n-1 to not be identical to read -N-1
  • Several fixes and improvements to lksh(1) and mksh(1) manpages
  • More code (int → size_t), comment and testsuite fixes
  • Make dot.mkshrc more robust (LP#1441853)
  • Fix issues with IFS='' read, found by edualbus
  • Fix integer overflows related to file descriptor parsing, found by Pawel Wylecial (LP#1440685); reduce memory usage for I/O redirs
  • Document in the manpage how to set ±U according to the current locale settings via LANG/LC_* parameters (cf. Debian #782225)
  • Some code cleanup and restructuring
  • Handle number parsing and storing more carefully
