I didn't see any documentation in the What's New/What's Changed
document saying that the following no longer works:
<cmd> <drive letter>:
$ ls C:
ls: cannot access C:: No such file or directory
This had worked fine on earlier versions.
This has broken several of my shell scripts so I am surprised it isn't
either documented (if a desired change) or fixed (if a bug).
I agree it's worth documenting.
Am I missing something?
Note using C:\\ does work.
C:/ also works.
