Version 1.7 available

Item posted by Sergey Poznyakoff <gray> on Thu 08 Jul 2010 12:22:23 AM EEST.

GNU Rush version 1.7 is available for download from, and mirrors worldwide.

New in this release:

New configuration statements

The new statements acct-umask, acct-dir-mode, acct-file-mode set the value of umask used when accessing accounting
database files, and permissions for the accounting directory and
database files, correspondingly.

Conditions `uid' and `gid'

These conditions now accept symbolic as well as numeric arguments, e.g.:

The `newgrp' command

The `newgrp' command changes the current group ID to the one given as its argument, which must be either a numeric GID or a name of an existing group.

Default regex flags affect the `transform' statement

New translations

Dutch, by Koen Torfs.
Vietnamese, by Clytie Siddall.


  • Fix memory allocation in make_file_name (puszcza#127).
  • Fix handling of numeric options in `rushlast'.
  • A single fall-through rule caused infinite loop (puszcza#127#comment7).
  • Accounting mode is off by default, as described in the documentation.
