Just when I learned bash programming, bash 4, number 5 comes out. It never ends ;)

bash 5.0 was released today. unfortunately, the authors are new to revision control systems, so the entire release was one commit: git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/bash

You can even do !g and do an anonymous untracked google search
