An updated version of zsh (zsh-5.0.8-1) has been released and should be
at a mirror near you real soon. This is an upstream release.
Version 5.0.8 has just been released for both 32-bit and 64-bit Cygwin.
(From the release notes: http://zsh.sourceforge.net/releases.html)
This version contains some minor feature enhancements and many bug fixes,
including fixes for some basic parsing problems and long-standing
compatibility issues in POSIX / sh compatibility mode. There are the usual
enhancements to completion functions.
See ChangeLogs for full details.
Zsh is a UNIX command interpreter (shell) usable as an interactive login
shell and as a shell script command processor. Of the standard shells,
zsh most closely resembles `ksh' but includes many enhancements. Zsh has
command line editing, builtin spelling correction, programmable command
completion, shell functions (with autoloading), a history mechanism, and
a host of other features.
