Some distribs (Gentoo) have it out already, at least in unstable.

Of course, other interested users already HAVE it shipping in their
favorite distribution, and have been using it for several days, if they
are running unstable, anyway.
Gentoo, anyone? A FreeBSD user on my ISP reported it was out for them as
well, altho that's obviously not a /Linux/ "distribution".
One bug confirmed both on Gentoo and FBSD, so it's apparently upstream, so
far: Where history scrollback (using the arrow keys, for instance) used
to let you go back in your command list, and then return to the normally
blank initial command, with 3.0, if one scrolls back at least two
commands, one can only scroll back forward to the last /history/ command,
the one BEFORE the previously blank command. To get back to the blank
command, one must use ^C. (If one scrolls only one command up, one can
still scroll that single command back down. It only breaks if one scrolls
at least two commands up.)
Or maybe that's a POSIX compliance thing? Do they standardize even
history scrolling to /that/ extent?
