    The opposite action top is renamed to first, but top is still

    (( i % 200 == 0 )) && printf "\033[2J"

    selected items even when no item is selected

    [#] 100/100
    seq 100 | fzf --multi

  - It is now possible to split a composite bind action over
    multiple --bind expressions by prefixing the later ones with
    fzf --bind 'ctrl-a:up+up'
    [#] Can be now written as
    fzf --bind 'ctrl-a:up' --bind 'ctrl-a:+up'
    [#] This is useful when you need to write special
    [#] execute/reload form (i.e. `execute:...`)
    [#] to avoid parse errors and add more actions to the same key
    fzf --multi --bind 'ctrl-l:select-all+execute:less {+f}' --bind 'ctrl-l:+deselect-all'
  - Fixed parse error of --bind expression where concatenated
    execute/reload action contains + character.

* Sun Nov 17 2019 Ismail Dönmez <>
- Update to 0.19.0
  - Added --phony option which completely disables search functionality.
    Useful when you want to use fzf only as a selector interface. See below.
  - Added "reload" action for dynamically updating the input list without
    restarting fzf. See to
    learn more about it.
  - --multi now takes an optional integer argument which indicates the
    maximum number of items that can be selected
  - If a placeholder expression for --preview and execute action
    (and the new reload action) contains f flag, it is replaced to
    the path of a temporary file that holds the evaluated list.
    This is useful when you multi-select a large number of items
    and the length of the evaluated string may exceed ARG_MAX.
  - deselect-all no longer deselects unmatched items. It is now
    consistent with select-all and toggle-all in that it only affects
    matched items.
  - Due to the limitation of bash, fuzzy completion is enabled by
    default for a fixed set of commands. A helper function for easily
    setting up fuzzy completion for any command is now provided.
  - Info line style can be changed by --info=STYLE
  - Preview window border can be disabled by adding noborder to --preview-window.
  - When you transform the input with --with-nth, the trailing white spaces are removed.
  - ctrl-\, ctrl-], ctrl-^, and ctrl-/ can now be used with --bind
  - See for more details
* Sat Apr 20 2019 Jan Engelhardt <>
- Remove pointless double extraction of tarball again.
* Thu Apr 18 2019 Matej Cepl <>
- Update to 0.18.0:
  - 0.18.0
  - Added placeholder expression for zero-based item index: {n}
    and {+n} fzf --preview 'echo {n}: {}'
  - Added color option for the gutter: --color gutter:-1
  - Added --no-unicode option for drawing borders in
    non-Unicode, ASCII characters
    preview process fzf still overrides LINES and COLUMNS as
    before, but they may be reset by the default shell.
  - Bug fixes and improvements See
  - Update to 0.17.5:
  - Bug fixes and improvements See
  - Search query longer than the screen width is allowed (up to

  is also more extensive third party plugin on
* Mon Jun 11 2018
- update to 0.17.4
  * Added --layout option with a new layout called reverse-list.
  - -layout=reverse is a synonym for --reverse
  - -layout=default is a synonym for --no-reverse
  * Preview window will be updated even when there is no match for
    the query if any of the placeholder expressions (e.g. {q}, {+})
    evaluates to a non-empty string.
  * More keys for binding: shift-{up,down}, alt-{up,down,left,
  * fzf can now start when /dev/tty is not available by making
    an educated guess.
  * bash/zsh completion improvements
  * install and uninstall scripts support generating files under
    XDG_CONFIG_HOME on --xdg flag.
