Bash 4.0 released

The fourth major version of the popular Unix shell, bash, has been released.

This release fixes all the outstanding bugs and introduces some new functionalities: associative arrays, improvements to the programmable completion functionality, case-modifying word expansions, co-processes, support for the ‘**’ special glob pattern (that matches all directories and files within them, when appropriate, recursively) and additions to the shell syntax and redirections (like ‘|&’ as a synonym for ‘2>&1 |’, that I use frequently).
You can read the official announcement here.
