Nushell 0.92.1

Nushell, or Nu for short, is a new shell that takes a modern, structured approach to your command line. 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 command line pipelines.

Today, we're releasing version 0.92.1 of Nu, a hotfix release for 0.92.0. This release fixes the following bugs and regressions present in 0.92.0:

  • The configured hooks should again properly affect the scope (e.g. virtualenv integrations using a hook to activate as an overlay) (#12383open in new window)
  • mkdir/touch did not correctly resolve relative paths after using cd. This is now fixed. (#12394open in new window)
  • The default config file created by 0.92.0 assumed that you built with the default feature set including the system-clipboard. This is not working on platforms like Android/Termux (termux builds with default-no-clipboard). Now we only create keybindings in that are supported on all platforms and provide suggestions as comments. You may want to recreate with 0.92.1 if you run into this issue. (#12385open in new window)
  • The timing of drop notifications sent to plugins has been corrected. (#12341open in new window)

Breaking change

A breaking change to the Rust API of nu-protocol was inadvertently added to the 0.92.1 patch release in PR #12341open in new window. Specifically, the method as_mut_any() was added to CustomValue, for accessing custom values' data with a mutable reference. This change requires custom value types to implement the method, which breaks API compatibility. Nushell scripts are not affected.
