Bash 3.0

Bash 3.0 released, looks like some neat stuff. My favorite bash tip is to put set completion-ignore-case On in your .inputrc file for case-insensitive completion. Lately I’ve been playing with zsh and it seems very powerful.

If you like that with bash, you might like this setting for zsh, which allows lower case characters to match case-insensitively:
zstyle ':completion:*' matcher-list 'm:{a-z}={A-Z}'

There is help at the the zshiwiki page about changing shells: http://www.zshwiki.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?ZshSwitchingTo Also the zsh-users mailing list is a great resource if you’re stuck. It would be nice to see any progress/problems you hit while trying zsh. It would be nifty if you actually changed shells.
