This release of fish fixes a number of major issues discovered in fish 3.0.0.

Download links: To download the source code for fish, we suggest the file named "fish-3.0.1.tar.gz". The file downloaded from "Source code (tar.gz)" will not build correctly. The SHA-256 sum of this file is 21677a5755ee1738bad2cf8179c104068f8bb81b969660d5a2af4ba6eceba5e4. A GPG signature from David Adam (0x7A67D962D88A709A) is available as "fish-3.0.1.tar.gz.asc".

Fixes and improvements

  • exec does not complain about running foreground jobs when called (#5449).
  • while loops now evaluate to the last executed command in the loop body (or zero if the body was empty), matching POSIX semantics (#4982).
  • read --silent no longer echoes to the tty when run from a non-interactive script (#5519).
  • On macOS, path entries with spaces in /etc/paths and /etc/paths.d now correctly set path entries with spaces. Likewise, MANPATH is correctly set from /etc/manpaths and /etc/manpaths.d (#5481).
  • fish starts correctly under Cygwin/MSYS2 (#5426).
  • The pager-toggle-search binding (Ctrl-S by default) will now activate the search field, even when the pager is not focused.
  • The error when a command is not found is now printed a single time, instead of once per argument (#5588).
  • Fixes and improvements to the git completions, including printing correct paths with older git versions, fuzzy matching again, reducing unnecessary offers of root paths (starting with :/) (#5578, #5574, #5476), and ignoring shell aliases, so enterprising users can set up the wrapping command (via set -g __fish_git_alias_$command $whatitwraps) (#5412).
  • Significant performance improvements to core shell functions (#5447) and to the kill completions (#5541).
  • Starting in symbolically-linked working directories works correctly (#5525).
  • The default fish_title function no longer contains extra spaces (#5517).
  • The nim prompt now works correctly when chosen in the Web-based configuration (#5490).
  • string now prints help to stdout, like other builtins (#5495).
  • Killing the terminal while fish is in vi normal mode will no longer send it spinning and eating CPU. (#5528)
  • A number of crashes have been fixed (#5550, #5548, #5479, #5453).
  • Improvements to the documentation and certain completions.

Known issues

There is one significant known issue that was not corrected before the release:

  • fish does not run correctly under Windows Services for Linux before Windows 10 version 1809/17763, and the message warning of this may not be displayed (#5619).

If you are upgrading from version 2.7.1 or before, please also review the release notes for 3.0.0 and 3.0b1.

fish 3 is a major release, which introduces some breaking changes alongside improved functionality. Although most existing scripts will continue to work, they should be reviewed against the list contained below.

Download links: To download the source code for fish, we suggest the file named "fish-3.0.0.tar.gz". The file downloaded from "Source code (tar.gz)" may not build correctly. The SHA-256 sum of this file is ea9dd3614bb0346829ce7319437c6a93e3e1dfde3b7f6a469b543b0d2c68f2cf. A GPG signature from David Adam (0x7A67D962D88A709A) is available as "fish-3.0.0.tar.gz.asc".

Compared to the beta release of fish 3.0b1, fish version 3.0.0:

  • builds correctly against musl libc (#5407)
  • handles huge numeric arguments to test correctly (#5414)
  • removes the history colouring introduced in 3.0b1, which did not always work correctly

There is one significant known issue which was not able to be corrected before the release:

  • fish 3.0.0 builds on Cygwin (#5423), but does not run correctly (#5426) and will result in a hanging terminal when started. Cygwin users are encouraged to continue using 2.7.1 until a release which corrects this is available.

If you are upgrading from version 2.7.1 or before, please also review the release notes for 3.0b1, which follow.

Notable non-backward compatible changes

  • Process and job expansion has largely been removed. % will no longer perform these expansions, except for %self for the PID of the current shell. Additionally, job management commands (disown, wait, bg, fg and kill) will expand job specifiers starting with % (#4230, #1202).
  • set x[1] x[2] a b, to set multiple elements of an array at once, is no longer valid syntax (#4236).
  • A literal {} now expands to itself, rather than nothing. This makes working with find -exec easier (#1109, #4632).
  • Literally accessing a zero-index is now illegal syntax and is caught by the parser (#4862). (fish indices start at 1)
  • Successive commas in brace expansions are handled in less surprising manner. For example, {,,,} expands to four empty strings rather than an empty string, a comma and an empty string again (#3002, #4632).
  • for loop control variables are no longer local to the for block (#1935).
  • Variables set in if and while conditions are available outside the block (#4820).
  • Local exported (set -lx) vars are now visible to functions (#1091).
  • The new math builtin (see below) does not support logical expressions; test should be used instead (#4777).
  • Range expansion will now behave sensibly when given a single positive and negative index ($foo[5..-1] or $foo[-1..5]), clamping to the last valid index without changing direction if the list has fewer elements than expected.
  • read now uses -s as short for --silent (à la bash); --shell's abbreviation (formerly -s) is now -S instead (#4490).
  • cd no longer resolves symlinks. fish now maintains a virtual path, matching other shells (#3350).
  • source now requires an explicit - as the filename to read from the terminal (#2633).
  • Arguments to end are now errors, instead of being silently ignored.
  • The names argparse, read, set, status, test and [ are now reserved and not allowed as function names. This prevents users unintentionally breaking stuff (#3000).
  • The fish_user_abbreviations variable is no longer used; abbreviations will be migrated to the new storage format automatically.
  • The FISH_READ_BYTE_LIMIT variable is now called fish_byte_limit (#4414).
  • Environment variables are no longer split into arrays based on the record separator character on startup. Instead, variables are not split, unless their name ends in PATH, in which case they are split on colons (#436).
  • The history builtin's --with-time option has been removed; this has been deprecated in favor of --show-time since 2.7.0 (#4403).
  • The internal variables __fish_datadir and __fish_sysconfdir are now known as __fish_data_dir and __fish_sysconf_dir respectively.

Deprecations

With the release of fish 3, a number of features have been marked for removal in the future. All users are encouraged to explore alternatives. A small number of these features are currently behind feature flags, which are turned on at present but may be turned off by default in the future.

A new feature flags mechanism is added for staging deprecations and breaking changes. Feature flags may be specified at launch with fish --features ... or by setting the universal fish_features variable. (#4940)

  • The use of the IFS variable for read is deprecated; IFS will be ignored in the future (#4156). Use the read --delimiter option instead.
  • The function --on-process-exit switch will be removed in future (#4700). Use the fish_exit event instead: function --on-event fish_exit.
  • $_ is deprecated and will removed in the future (#813). Use status current-command in a command substitution instead.
  • ^ as a redirection deprecated and will be removed in the future. (#4394). Use 2> to redirect stderr. This is controlled by the stderr-nocaret feature flag.
  • ? as a glob (wildcard) is deprecated and will be removed in the future (#4520). This is controlled by the qmark-noglob feature flag.

Notable fixes and improvements

Syntax changes and new commands

  • fish now supports && (like and), || (like or), and ! (like not), for better migration from POSIX-compliant shells (#4620).
  • Variables may be used as commands (#154).
  • fish may be started in private mode via fish --private. Private mode fish sessions do not have access to the history file and any commands evaluated in private mode are not persisted for future sessions. A session variable $fish_private_mode can be queried to detect private mode and adjust the behavior of scripts accordingly to respect the user's wish for privacy.
  • A new wait command for waiting on backgrounded processes (#4498).
  • math is now a builtin rather than a wrapper around bc (#3157). Floating point computations is now used by default, and can be controlled with the new --scale option (#4478).
  • Setting $PATH no longer warns on non-existent directories, allowing for a single $PATH to be shared across machines (eg via dotfiles) (#2969).
  • while sets $status to a non-zero value if the loop is not executed (#4982).
  • Command substitution output is now limited to 10 MB by default, controlled by the fish_read_limit variable (#3822). Notably, this is larger than most operating systems' argument size limit, so trying to pass argument lists this size to external commands has never worked.
  • The machine hostname, where available, is now exposed as the $hostname reserved variable. This removes the dependency on the hostname executable (#4422).
  • Bare bind invocations in config.fish now work. The fish_user_key_bindings function is no longer necessary, but will still be executed if it exists (#5191).
  • $fish_pid and $last_pid are available as replacements for %self and %last.

New features in commands

  • alias has a new --save option to save the generated function immediately (#4878).
  • bind has a new --silent option to ignore bind requests for named keys not available under the current terminal (#4188, #4431).
  • complete has a new --keep-order option to show the provided or dynamically-generated argument list in the same order as specified, rather than alphabetically (#361).
  • exec prompts for confirmation if background jobs are running.
  • funced has a new --save option to automatically save the edited function after successfully editing (#4668).
  • functions has a new --handlers option to show functions registered as event handlers (#4694).
  • history search supports globs for wildcard searching (#3136) and has a new --reverse option to show entries from oldest to newest (#4375).
  • jobs has a new --quiet option to silence the output.
  • read has a new --delimiter option for splitting input into arrays (#4256).
  • read writes directly to stdout if called without arguments (#4407).
  • read can now read individual lines into separate variables without consuming the input in its entirety via the new /--line option.
  • set has new --append and --prepend options (#1326).
  • set has a new --show option to show lots of information about variables (#4265).
  • string match with an empty pattern and --entire in glob mode now matches everything instead of nothing (#4971).
  • string split supports a new --no-empty option to exclude empty strings from the result (#4779).
  • string has new subcommands split0 and join0 for working with NUL-delimited output.
  • string no longer stops processing text after NUL characters (#4605)
  • string escape has a new --style regex option for escaping strings to be matched literally in string regex operations.
  • test now supports floating point values in numeric comparisons.

Interactive improvements

  • A pipe at the end of a line now allows the job to continue on the next line (#1285).
  • Italics and dim support out of the box on macOS for Terminal.app and iTerm (#4436).
  • cd tab completions no longer descend into the deepest unambiguous path (#4649).
  • Pager navigation has been improved. Most notably, moving down now wraps around, moving up from the commandline now jumps to the last element and moving right and left now reverse each other even when wrapping around (#4680).
  • Typing normal characters while the completion pager is active no longer shows the search field. Instead it enters them into the command line, and ends paging (#2249).
  • A new input binding pager-toggle-search toggles the search field in the completions pager on and off. By default, this is bound to Ctrl-S.
  • Searching in the pager now does a full fuzzy search (#5213).
  • The pager will now show the full command instead of just its last line if the number of completions is large (#4702).
  • Abbreviations can be tab-completed (#3233).
  • Tildes in file names are now properly escaped in completions (#2274).
  • Wrapping completions (from complete --wraps or function --wraps) can now inject arguments. For example, complete gco --wraps 'git checkout' now works properly (#1976). The alias function has been updated to respect this behavior.
  • Path completions now support expansions, meaning expressions like python ~/<TAB> now provides file suggestions just like any other relative or absolute path. (This includes support for other expansions, too.)
  • Autosuggestions try to avoid arguments that are already present in the command line.
  • Notifications about crashed processes are now always shown, even in command substitutions (#4962).
  • The screen is no longer reset after a BEL, fixing graphical glitches (#3693).
  • vi-mode now supports ';' and ',' motions. This introduces new {forward,backward}-jump-till and repeat-jump{,-reverse} bind functions (#5140).
  • The *y vi-mode binding now works (#5100).
  • True color is now enabled in neovim by default (#2792).
  • Terminal size variables ($COLUMNS/$LINES) are now updated before fish_prompt is called, allowing the prompt to react (#904).
  • Multi-line prompts no longer repeat when the terminal is resized (#2320).
  • xclip support has been added to the clipboard integration (#5020).
  • The Alt-P keybinding paginates the last command if the command line is empty.
  • $cmd_duration is no longer reset when no command is executed (#5011).
  • Deleting a one-character word no longer erases the next word as well (#4747).
  • Token history search (Alt-Up) omits duplicate entries (#4795).
  • The fish_escape_delay_ms timeout, allowing the use of the escape key both on its own and as part of a control sequence, was applied to all control characters; this has been reduced to just the escape key.
  • Completing a function shows the description properly (#5206).
  • Added completions for
    • ansible, including ansible-galaxy, ansible-playbook and ansible-vault (#4697)
    • bb-power (#4800)
    • bd (#4472)
    • bower
    • clang and clang++ (#4174)

    • makensis (#5242)
    • meson
    • mkdocs (#4906)
    • ngrok (#4642)
    • OpenBSD's pkg_add, pkg_delete, pkg_info, pfctl, rcctl, signify, and vmctl (#4584)
    • openocd
    • optipng
    • opkg (#5168)
    • pandoc (#2937)
    • port (#4737)
    • powerpill (#4800)
    • pstack (#5135)
    • serve (#5026)
    • ttx
    • unzip
    • virsh (#5113)
    • xclip (#5126)
    • xsv
    • zfs and zpool (#4608)
  • Lots of improvements to completions (especially darcs (#5112), git, hg and sudo).
  • Completions for yarn and npm now require the all-the-package-names NPM package for full functionality.
  • Completions for bower and yarn now require the jq utility for full functionality.
  • Improved French translations.

Other fixes and improvements

  • Significant performance improvements to abbr (#4048), setting variables (#4200, #4341), executing functions, globs (#4579), string reading from standard input (#4610), and slicing history (in particular, $history[1] for the last executed command).
  • Fish's internal wcwidth function has been updated to deal with newer Unicode, and the width of some characters can be configured via the fish_ambiguous_width (#5149) and fish_emoji_width (#2652) variables. Alternatively, a new build-time option INTERNAL_WCWIDTH can be used to use the system's wcwidth instead (#4816).
  • functions correctly supports -d as the short form of --description. (#5105)
  • /etc/paths is now parsed like macOS' bash path_helper, fixing $PATH order (#4336, #4852) on macOS.
  • Using a read-only variable in a for loop produces an error, rather than silently producing incorrect results (#4342).
  • The universal variables filename no longer contains the hostname or MAC address. It is now at the fixed location .config/fish/fish_variables (#1912).
  • Exported variables in the global or universal scope no longer have their exported status affected by local variables (#2611).
  • Major rework of terminal and job handling to eliminate bugs (#3805, #3952, #4178, #4235, #4238, #4540, #4929, #5210).
  • Improvements to the manual page completion generator (#2937, #4313).
  • suspend --force now works correctly (#4672).
  • Pressing Ctrl-C while running a script now reliably terminates fish (#5253).

For distributors and developers

  • fish ships with a new build system based on CMake. CMake 3.2 is the minimum required version. Although the autotools-based Makefile and the Xcode project are still shipped with this release, they will be removed in the near future. All distributors and developers are encouraged to migrate to the CMake build.
  • Build scripts for most platforms no longer require bash, using the standard sh instead.
  • The hostname command is no longer required for fish to operate.

  • Terminal size variables ($COLUMNS/$LINES) are now updated before fish_prompt is called, allowing the prompt to react (#904).
  • Multi-line prompts no longer repeat when the terminal is resized (#2320).
  • xclip support has been added to the clipboard integration (#5020).
  • The Alt-P keybinding paginates the last command if the command line is empty.

  • Deleting a one-character word no longer erases the next word as well (#4747).
  • Token history search (Alt-Up) omits duplicate entries (#4795).
  • The fish_escape_delay_ms timeout, allowing the use of the escape key both on its own and as part of a control sequence, was applied to all control characters; this has been reduced to just the escape key.
  • Completing a function shows the description properly (#5206).

  • Lots of improvements to completions (especially darcs (#5112), git, hg and sudo).
  • Completions for yarn and npm now require the all-the-package-names NPM package for full functionality.
  • Completions for bower and yarn now require the jq utility for full functionality.
  • Improved French translations.

Other fixes and improvements

  • Significant performance improvements to abbr (#4048), setting variables (#4200, #4341), executing functions, globs (#4579), string reading from standard input (#4610), and slicing history (in particular, $history[1] for the last executed command).
  • Fish's internal wcwidth function has been updated to deal with newer Unicode, and the width of some characters can be configured via the fish_ambiguous_width (#5149) and fish_emoji_width (#2652) variables. Alternatively, a new build-time option INTERNAL_WCWIDTH can be used to use the system's wcwidth instead (#4816).
  • functions correctly supports -d as the short form of --description. (#5105)
  • /etc/paths is now parsed like macOS' bash path_helper, fixing $PATH order (#4336, #4852) on macOS.
  • Using a read-only variable in a for loop produces an error, rather than silently producing incorrect results (#4342).
  • The universal variables filename no longer contains the hostname or MAC address. It is now at the fixed location .config/fish/fish_variables (#1912).
  • Exported variables in the global or universal scope no longer have their exported status affected by local variables (#2611).
  • Major rework of terminal and job handling to eliminate bugs (#3805, #3952, #4178, #4235, #4238, #4540, #4929, #5210).
  • Improvements to the manual page completion generator (#2937, #4313).
  • suspend --force now works correctly (#4672).
  • Pressing Ctrl-C while running a script now reliably terminates fish (#5253).

For distributors and developers

  • fish ships with a new build system based on CMake. CMake 3.2 is the minimum required version. Although the autotools-based Makefile and the Xcode project are still shipped with this release, they will be removed in the near future. All distributors and developers are encouraged to migrate to the CMake build.
  • Build scripts for most platforms no longer require bash, using the standard sh instead.
  • The hostname and bc commands are no longer required for fish to operate.

This release of fish fixes an issue where iTerm 2 on macOS would display a warning about paste bracketing being left on when starting a new fish session (#4521).

If you are upgrading from version 2.6.0 or before, please also review the release notes for 2.7.0 and 2.7b1 (included below).


The release notes for fish 2.7.0 are as follows:

Xcode builds and macOS packages could not be produced with 2.7b1, but this is fixed in 2.7.0.


The release notes for fish 2.7b1 are as follows:

Notable improvements

  • A new cdh (change directory using recent history) command provides a more friendly alternative to prevd/nextd and pushd/popd (#2847).
  • A new argparse command is available to allow fish script to parse arguments with the same behavior as builtin commands. This also includes the fish_opt helper command. (#4190).
  • Invalid array indexes are now silently ignored (#826, #4127).
  • Improvements to the debugging facility, including a prompt specific to the debugger (fish_breakpoint_prompt) and a status is-breakpoint subcommand (#1310).
  • string supports new lower and upper subcommands, for altering the case of strings (#4080). The case changing is not locale-aware yet.
  • string escape has a new --style=xxx flag where xxx can be script, var, or url (#4150), and can be reversed with string unescape (#3543).
  • History can now be split into sessions with the fish_history variable, or not saved to disk at all (#102).
  • Read history is now controlled by the fish_history variable rather than the --mode-name flag (#1504).
  • command now supports an --all flag to report all directories with the command. which is no longer a runtime dependency (#2778).
  • fish can run commands before starting an interactive session using the new --init-command/-C options (#4164).
  • set has a new --show option to show lots of information about variables (#4265).

Other significant changes

  • The COLUMNS and LINES environment variables are now correctly set the first time fish_prompt is run (#4141).
  • complete's --no-files option works as intended (#112).
  • echo -h now correctly echoes -h in line with other shells (#4120).
  • The export compatibility function now returns zero on success, rather than always returning 1 (#4435).
  • Stop converting empty elements in MANPATH to "." (#4158). The behavior being changed was introduced in fish 2.6.0.
  • count -h and count --help now return 1 rather than produce command help output (#4189).
  • An attempt to read which stops because too much data is available still defines the variables given as parameters (#4180).
  • A regression in fish 2.4.0 which prevented pushd +1 from working has been fixed (#4091).
  • A regression in fish 2.6.0 where multiple read commands in non-interactive scripts were broken has been fixed (#4206).
  • A regression in fish 2.6.0 involving universal variables with side-effects at startup such as set -U fish_escape_delay_ms 10 has been fixed (#4196).
  • Added completions for:

Since the beta release of fish 2.6b1, fish version 2.6.0 contains a number of minor fixes, new completions for magneto (#4043), and improvements to the documentation.

Known issues

  • Apple macOS Sierra 10.12.5 introduced a problem with launching web browsers from other programs using AppleScript. This affects the fish Web configuration (fish_config); users on these platforms will need to manually open the address displayed in the terminal, such as by copying and pasting it into a browser. This problem will be fixed with macOS 10.12.6.

If you are upgrading from version 2.5.0 or before, please also review the release notes for 2.6b1 (included below).


The release notes for fish 2.6b1 are as follows:

Notable fixes and improvements

  • Jobs running in the background can now be removed from the list of jobs with the new disown builtin, which behaves like the same command in other shells (#2810).
  • Command substitutions now have access to the terminal, like in other shells. This allows tools like fzf to work properly (#1362, #3922).
  • In cases where the operating system does not report the size of the terminal, the COLUMNS and LINES environment variables are used; if they are unset, a default of 80x24 is assumed.
  • New French (#3772 & #3788) and improved German (#3834) translations.
  • fish no longer depends on the which external command.

Other significant changes

  • Performance improvements in launching processes, including major reductions in signal blocking. Although this has been heavily tested, it may cause problems in some circumstances; set the FISH_NO_SIGNAL_BLOCK variable to 0 in your fish configuration file to return to the old behaviour (#2007).
  • Performance improvements in prompts and functions that set lots of colours (#3793).
  • The Delete key no longer deletes backwards (a regression in 2.5.0).
  • functions supports a new --details option, which identifies where the function was loaded from (#3295), and a --details --verbose option which includes the function description (#597).
  • read will read up to 10 MiB by default, leaving the target variable empty and exiting with status 122 if the line is too long. You can set a different limit with the FISH_READ_BYTE_LIMIT variable.
  • read supports a new --silent option to hide the characters typed (#838), for when reading sensitive data from the terminal. read also now accepts simple strings for the prompt (rather than scripts) with the new -P and --prompt-str options (#802).
  • export and setenv now understand colon-separated PATH, CDPATH and MANPATH variables.
  • bind supports a new --list-modes option (#3872).
  • bg will check all of its arguments before backgrounding any jobs; any invalid arguments will cause a failure, but non-existent (eg recently exited) jobs are ignored (#3909).
  • funced warns if the function being edited has not been modified (#3961).
  • printf correctly outputs "long long" integers (#3352).
  • status supports a new current-function subcommand to print the current function name (#1743).
  • string supports a new repeat subcommand (#3864). string match supports a new --entire option to emit the entire line matched by a pattern (#3957). string replace supports a new --filter option to only emit lines which underwent a replacement (#3348).
  • test supports the -k option to test for sticky bits (#733).
  • umask understands symbolic modes (#738).
  • Empty components in the CDPATH, MANPATH and PATH variables are now converted to "." (#2106, #3914).
  • New versions of ncurses (6.0 and up) wipe terminal scrollback buffers with certain commands; the C-l binding tries to avoid this (#2855).
  • Some systems' su implementations do not set the USER environment variable; it is now reset for root users (#3916).
  • Under terminals which support it, bracketed paste is enabled, escaping problematic characters for security and convience (#3871). Inside single quotes ('), single quotes and backslashes in pasted text are escaped (#967). The fish_clipboard_paste function (bound to C-v by default) is still the recommended pasting method where possible as it includes this functionality and more.
  • Processes in pipelines are no longer signalled as soon as one command in the pipeline has completed (#1926). This behaviour matches other shells mre closely.
  • All functions requiring Python work with whichever version of Python is installed (#3970). Python 3 is preferred, but Python 2.6 remains the minimum version required.
  • The color of the cancellation character can be controlled by the fish_color_cancel variable (#3963).
  • Added completions for:
  • caddy (#4008)
  • castnow (#3744)
  • climate (#3760)
  • flatpak
  • gradle (#3859)
  • gsettings (#4001)

  • pv (#3773)
  • setsid (#3791)
  • terraform (#3960)
  • usermod (#3775)
  • xinput
  • yarn (#3816)
  • Improved completions for adb (#3853), apt (#3771), bzr (#3769), dconf, git (including #3743), grep (#3789), go (#3789), help (#3789), hg (#3975), htop (#3789), killall (#3996), lua, man (#3762), mount (#3764 & #3841), obnam (#3924), perl (#3856), portmaster (#3950), python (#3840), ssh (#3781), scp (#3781), systemctl (#3757) and udisks (#3764).

There are no major changes between 2.5b1 and 2.5.0. If you are upgrading from version 2.4.0 or before, please also review the release notes for 2.5b1 (included below).

Notable fixes and improvements

  • The Home, End, Insert, Delete, Page Up and Page Down keys work in Vi-style key bindings (#3731).

The release notes for fish 2.5b1 are as follows:

Platform Changes

Starting with version 2.5, fish requires a more up-to-date version of C++, specifically C++11 (from 2011). This affects some older platforms:

Linux

For users building from source, GCC's g++ 4.8 or later, or LLVM's clang 3.3 or later, are known to work. Older platforms may require a newer compiler installed.

Unfortunately, because of the complexity of the toolchain, binary packages are no longer published by the fish-shell developers for the following platforms:

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux and CentOS 5 & 6 for 64-bit builds
  • Ubuntu 12.04 (EoLTS April 2017)
  • Debian 7 (EoLTS May 2018)

Installing newer version of fish on these systems will require building from source.

OS X SnowLeopard

Starting with version 2.5, fish requires a C++11 standard library on OS X 10.6 ("SnowLeopard"). If this library is not installed, you will see this error: dyld: Library not loaded: /usr/lib/libc++.1.dylib

MacPorts is the easiest way to obtain this library. After installing the SnowLeopard MacPorts release from the install page, run:

sudo port -v install libcxx

Now fish should launch successfully. (Please open an issue if it does not.)

This is only necessary on 10.6. OS X 10.7 and later include the required library by default.

Other significant changes

  • Attempting to exit with running processes in the background produces a warning, then signals them to terminate if a second attempt to exit is made. This brings the behaviour for running background processes into line with stopped processes. (#3497)
  • random can now have start, stop and step values specified, or the new choice subcommand can be used to pick an argument from a list (#3619).
  • A new key bindings preset, fish_hybrid_key_bindings, including all the Emacs-style and Vi-style bindings, which behaves like fish_vi_key_bindings in fish 2.3.0 (#3556).
  • function now returns an error when called with invalid options, rather than defining the function anyway (#3574). This was a regression present in fish 2.3 and 2.4.0.
  • fish no longer prints a warning when it identifies a running instance of an old version (2.1.0 and earlier). Changes to universal variables may not propagate between these old versions and 2.5b1.
  • Improved compatiblity with Android (#3585), MSYS/mingw (#2360), Solaris (#3456, #3340)
  • Like other shells, the test builting now returns an error for numeric operations on invalid integers (#3346, #3581).
  • complete no longer recognises --authoritative and --unauthoritative options, and they are marked as obsolete.
  • status accepts subcommands, and should be used like status is-interactive. The old options continue to be supported for the foreseeable future (#3526), although only one subcommand or option can be specified at a time.
  • Selection mode (used with "begin-selection") no longer selects a character the cursor does not move over (#3684).
  • List indexes are handled better, and a bit more liberally in some cases (echo $PATH[1 .. 3] is now valid) (#3579).
  • The fish_mode_prompt function is now simply a stub around fish_default_mode_prompt, which allows the mode prompt to be included more easily in customised prompt functions (#3641).

Notable fixes and improvements

  • alias, run without options or arguments, lists all defined aliases, and aliases now include a description in the function signature that identifies them.
  • complete accepts empty strings as descriptions (#3557).
  • command accepts -q/--quiet in combination with --search (#3591), providing a simple way of checking whether a command exists in scripts.
  • Abbreviations can now be renamed with abbr --rename OLD_KEY NEW_KEY (#3610).
  • The command synopses printed by --help options work better with copying and pasting (#2673).
  • help launches the browser specified by the $fish_help_browser variable if it is set (#3131).
  • History merging could lose items under certain circumstances and is now fixed (#3496).
  • The $status variable is now set to 123 when a syntactically invalid command is entered (#3616).
  • Exiting fish now signals all background processes to terminate, not just stopped jobs (#3497).
  • A new prompt_hostname function which prints a hostname suitable for use in prompts (#3482).
  • The __fish_man_page function (bound to Alt-h by default) now tries to recognize subcommands (e.g. git add will now open the "git-add" man page) (#3678).
  • A new function edit_command_buffer (bound to Alt-e & Alt-v by default) to edit the command buffer in an external editor (#1215, #3627).
  • set_color now supports italics (--italics), dim (--dim) and reverse (--reverse) modes (#3650).
  • Filesystems with very slow locking (eg incorrectly-configured NFS) will no longer slow fish down (#685).
  • Improved completions for apt (#3695), fusermount (#3642), make (#3628), netctl-auto (#3378), nmcli (#3648), pygmentize (#3378), and tar (#3719).
  • Added completions for:
