This update has introduced a potential breaking change: variables now need to be defined before usage otherwise the commandline will fail. Read notes to learn how to disable this feature where needed. Also included in this release is the
select command as part of the standard build.
strict-varsis enabled by default. This means if a variable doesn't exist / hasn't been instantiated then your command will fail. You can disable this by putting
config: set proc strict-vars falseinside any affected
functions and/or in your
selectbuiltin now added to the default build. This built in will stream tabulated data into an in memory sqlite3 database and take SQL arguments to query that data. Thus allowing you to inline SQL queries as part of your native command line. This addition will add complications for anyone building from source on Windows. If you are a Windows user you are recommended to use WSL or, if you desperately need to use Murex natively on Windows, download the appropriate per-compiled binary from the downloads page
When used in WSL, any Windows mounts included in
$PATHwill now be subject to the same inclusion rules as Windows file systems when Murex is used in Windows. This means only executables (ie files with
.exe, amongst other, extensions are present). This has dramatically cleaned up autocomplete suggestions when running Murex in WSL.
FileRegexp. Use this if you want to return only files where the file name matches a defined pattern (eg only .txt files:

.tfstate(Terraform state files) have been added to supported JSON extensions

debug message added to warn when fork FIDs are being killed
Non-user facing changes (internal changes to the Murex code base):
Older function definitions replaced with the newer (correct) way to define functions and methods. This allows for greater discovery in the interactive terminal
Root unit tests finish quicker
HTTP client (as used by
open, etc) wasn't breaking down the
Content-Typeheader correctly. This only affected unknown MIME types where Murex had to guess the correct data type to assign to STDOUT. This is an edge case bug.
while, when used without a separate parameter for the conditional logic, was buffering the STDOUT for each loop and outputting it after that iteration had ended.
whilenow uses a "tee" stdio writer which means it can stream STDOUT while the iteration is in progress Synonyms:
