fish-3.1.2-2

Ken Brown via Cygwin-announce
fish 3.1.2-2 is now available in Cygwin. This release updates the default
fish_prompt function to the version shipped in the upstream fish 3.1.2.

The new default prompt function has lots more stuff in it, like a colored
username, version control branch name, and numerical exit status code of
the previous command, if it ended in an error status.

Personally, I find all of that to be too much information for a shell
prompt. But it's what the fish project ships now, so Cygwin is including
it. If you want to change/simplify the prompt, you can:

* Change fish's colors. For example, you can set the username color in the
prompt from bright green (!) back to normal by

  set -U fish_user_color normal

* Create your own fish_prompt function. You can start by copying it from
/usr/share/fish/vendor_functions.d/fish_prompt.fish into either of:

  /etc/fish/functions (for all users on the host)
  ~/.config/fish/functions (for just your account)

Then edit the function, for example to remove fish_vcs_prompt (which I find
also slows down the prompt) or prompt_status.

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.
