[ANNOUNCEMENT] fish-3.0.2-1 (test)

fish 3.0.2-1 is now available as a test release in Cygwin.

fish version 3 introduces backwards-incompatible changes with version 2:

* See https://fishshell.com/release_notes.html for the list of upstream
changes. See especially the release notes for fish 3.0.0.

* Universal variables are saved in a different file now (fish_variables,
instead of fishd.$HOSTNAME.$ARCH, in ~/.config/fish), and fish doesn't port
the stored values from the old file to the new one. So you'll have to reset
your universal variables in fish version 3. If you want to import all of
the old values, you can probably develop a sed script to do it by
inspecting the (different) formats of the old and new files. If you just
want to reset them manually as needed, you can look up the old values in

* In Cygwin only, fish version 2 saved different sets of universal
variables for the i686 and x86_64 architectures. In version 3 I haven't
reapplied the patch to do that yet, so for now the two architectures share
universal variables. I'm considering whether they should still be separate,
so please reply with your comments about whether separating them is a
good/bad/indifferent thing to do.

fish is the friendly interactive shell. It's a Unix shell that focuses on
interactive use, discoverability, and user friendliness. The design goal of
fish is to give the user a rich set of powerful features in a way that is
easy to discover, remember, and use.
