- Update to 2014-06-26 of ksh93v- version
  * A bug on some systems in which cd to a directory without execute
    permission would not fail has been fixed.
  * The BASH_SOURCE variable was added when ksh is run in bash mode.
  * The -D and -E options have been added to the complete builtin.
  * References to were deleted.
  * The -l flag to trap and the -p flag to umask were added as in bash.
  * In bash mode ${!parameter} is treated like ${$parameter}.
  * Fixed a bug in which eval inside a dot script invoked by a profile file
    terminated the dot script prematurely after running the eval command.
  * Added parameter expansion operator ${$parameter} for variables and
    positional parameters.
  * Added -a option to read which is equivalent to -A.
  * Fixed a bug in builtin -p.
  * Added -n option to builtin to disable builtins.
  * Fixed a couple of file completion bugs.
  * When compiled with the SHOPT_BASH and run with the name bash,
    the shell now uses dynamic scoping for name() and function name.
    In addition the builtins declare and local are supported.
    The SHOPT_BASH option is on by default in the Makefile.
    More work remains with the bash compatibility option.
  * Fixed a bug in vi command completion in which tab did not work
    after a space.
  * Replaced the -p option for read with -p prompt.  For backword
    compatibility, if a coprocess is running and prompt begins with -
    or is a valid variable name, -p causes the read from a pipe.
  * Modified the -u option for read and print so that it accepts the
    option argument p to indicate the coprocess file descriptor.
- Remove patch ksh93-cd_pwd.dif and ksh93-jobs.dif as now upstream
* Fri Jun 27 2014

  ksh93-cd_pwd.dif to see error if a directory does not have execution bit

* Wed May 14 2014

  * A bug in the option parser which could cause 'X -a v=((...)...) to
    core dump has been fixed.
  * A change to improve the performance of appending an element to an
    array has been fixed.
  * A complilation option to add programmable completion with the two
    new builtins, complete and compgen has been added.  It should behave
    the same as it does with bash.  Please try this out and report any
    problems you find.  Use compgen --man and complete --man to get the
    man pages.  Use the bash documentation for now for information about
    programmable completion.  The compilation is on by default for now.
