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,
built-in spelling correction, programmable command completion,
shell functions (with autoloading), a history mechanism, and a
host of other features.

zsh (5.3.1-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* [348c47bd] Cherry-pick four stability patches from upstream:
+ [48cadf48] 40285: Src/Zle/zle_hist.c: more care needed managing
patterns in history isearch if there are hooks around.
+ [2e76fb80] 40372: Completion/compinit: turn off POSIX_IDENTIFIERS
option for completion.
+ [8d4c9854] 40260: Src/prompt.c: Set newly allocated space in prompt
buffer to zero as it may be tested.
+ [ebd7fdd9] 40362: Src/Zle/computil.c: need duplicated values for
setting parameter in compvalues.  Was causing obscure but
surprisingly rare crashes in value completion.
