Nushell, or Nu for short, is a new shell that takes a modern, structured approach to your commandline. It works seamlessly with the data from your filesystem, operating system, and a growing number of file formats to make it easy to build powerful commandline pipelines.
Today, we're releasing 0.42 of Nu. This release is a bugfix release of 0.41.
Where to get it
If you want all the goodies, you can install
cargo install nu --features=extra.
As part of this release, we also publish a set of plugins you can install and use with Nu. To install, use
cargo install nu_plugin_<plugin name>.
- Can optionally use an insecure SSL cert (nibon7)
- Fixed a crash when viewing text files (nibon7)
- Build fixed for NetBSD (0323pin)
- For naming consistency,

Engine-q is now able to be used as a standalone shell. It includes the full set of dataframe functionality and most of the nushell commands. We aren't yet making nightly builds available, but you should be able to clone and build engine-q on your machine in the same way you might grab the latest Nushell. As you try out engine-q, also give a read over the in-progress breaking change list, as it shows where the new engine will differ from Nushell's current engine.
There are still some commands left to port if you'd like to jump in and give porting a try. If you're interested, you can also help us by testing out engine-q itself as a shell and report your experiences with it. And of course, come join us on the discord. We'd be happy to show you around.
