2006-07-16 - Legacy love!
Yes it's true, Bashish now magically displays prompts correctly on non-UTF-8 terminals, however, be sure to bring your own VGA font. Time to give some Bashish to Eterm, aterm and the console.

Bashish is still looking for sponsorship in Debian, and a maintainer for Gentoo.

A lot of updates are avaliable "under the hood":
- the new theme library (replacing the 1.x needmod system).
- Winchupdate - the prompt updates when the window size changes.

documentation so people can explore the wonders of Bashish :)
- Functions are now ksh93 style - however this release still remain untested on ksh93.
