Upcoming release

Features

Bugfixes

  • Disable jemalloc on Android, see #662

Changes

Other

v8.1.1

Bugfixes

  • Support colored output on older Windows versions if either (1) --color=always is set or (2) the TERM environment variable is set. See #469

v8.1.0

Features

  • Add new --owner [user][:group] filter. See #307 (pull #581) (@alexmaco)
  • Add support for a global ignore file (~/.config/fd/ignore on Unix), see #575 (@soedirgo)
  • Do not exit immediately if one of the search paths is missing, see #587 (@DJRHails)

Bugfixes

  • Reverted a change from fd 8.0 that enabled colors on all Windows terminals (see below) in order to support older Windows versions again, see #577. Unfortunately, this re-opens #469
  • Fix segfault caused by jemalloc on macOS Catalina, see #498
  • Fix --glob behavior with empty pattern, see #579 (@SeamusConnor)
  • Fix --list-details on FreeBSD, DragonFly BSD, OpenBSD and NetBSD. See #573 (@t6)

Changes

  • Updated documentation for --size, see #584

v8.0.0

Features

  • Add a new -l/--list-details option to show more details about the search results. This is basically an alias for --exec-batch ls -l with some additional ls options. This can be used in order to:
    • see metadata like permissions, owner, file size, modification times (#491)
    • see symlink targets (#482)
    • achieve a deterministic output order (#324, #196, #159)
  • Add a new --max-results=<count> option to limit the number of search results, see #472, #476 and #555 This can be useful to speed up searches in cases where you know that there are only N results. Using this option is also (slightly) faster than piping to head -n <count> where fd can only exit when it finds the search results <count> + 1.
  • Add the alias -1 for --max-results=1, see #561. (@SimplyDanny).
  • Add new --type socket and --type pipe filters, see #511.
  • Add new --min-depth <depth> and --exact-depth <depth> options in addition to the existing option to limit the maximum depth. See #404.
  • Support additional ANSI font styles in LS_COLORS: faint, slow blink, rapid blink, dimmed, hidden and strikethrough.

Bugfixes

  • Preserve non-UTF8 filenames: invalid UTF-8 filenames are now properly passed to child-processes when using --exec, --exec-batch or --list-details. In fd's output, we replace non-UTF-8 sequences with the "�" character. However, if the output of fd goes to another process, we print the actual bytes of the filename. For more details, see #558 and #295.
  • LS_COLORS entries with unsupported font styles are not completely ignored, see #552

Changes

  • Colored output will now be enabled by default on older Windows versions. This allows the use of colored output if the terminal supports it (e.g. MinTTY, Git Bash). On the other hand, this will be a regression for users on older Windows versions with terminals that do not support ANSI escape sequences. Affected users can use an alias fd="fd --color=never" to continue using fd without colors. There is no change of behavior for Windows 10. See #469.
  • When using --glob in combination with --full-path, a * character does not match a path separation character (/ or \\) anymore. You can use ** for that. This allows things like fd -p -g '/some/base/path/*/*/*.txt' which would previously match to arbitrary depths (instead of exactly two folders below /some/base/path. See #404.
  • "Legacy" support to use fd -exec (with a single dash) has been removed. Use fd -x or fd --exec instead.
  • Overall improved error handling and error messages.

Other

v7.5.0

Features

  • Added --one-file-system (aliases: --mount, --xdev) to not cross file system boundaries on Unix and Windows, see #507 (@FallenWarrior2k).
  • Added --base-directory to change the working directory in which fd is run, see #509 and #475 (@hajdamak).
  • fd will not use colored output if the NO_COLOR environment variable is set, see #550 and #551 (@metadave).
  • fd --exec will return exit code 1 if one of the executed commands fails, see #526 and #531 (@fusillicode and @Giuffre)

Bug Fixes

Changes

  • A flag can now be passed multiple times without producing an error, see #488 and #496 (@rootbid).
  • Search results are sorted when using the -X option to match the behaviour of piping to xargs, see #441 and #524 (@Marcoleni @crash-g).

v7.4.0

Performance improvements

  • Reduce number of stat syscalls, improving the performance for searches where file metadata is required (--type, --size, --changed-within, …), see #434 (@tavianator)
  • Use jemalloc by default, improving the performance for almost all searches, see #481. Note that Windows and *musl* builds do not profit from this.

Features

  • Added a new -g/--glob option to switch to glob-based searches (instead of regular expression based searches). This is accompanied by a new --regex option that can be used to switch back, if users want to alias fd="fd --glob". See #284
  • Added a new --path-separator <sep> option which can be useful for Windows users who want/need fd to use / instead of \, see #428 and #153 (@mookid)
  • Added support for hidden files on Windows, see #379
  • When fd is run with the --exec-batch/-X option, it now exposes the exit status of the command that was run, see #333.
  • Exit immediately when Ctrl-C has been pressed twice, see #423

Bugfixes

  • Make --changed-within/--changed-before work for directories, see #470

Other

v7.3.0

Features

  • New --exec-batch <cmd>/-X <cmd> option for batch execution of commands, see #360 (@kimsnj). This allows you to do things like:
    fd … -X vim  # open all search results in vim (or any other editor)
    fd … -X ls -l  # view detailed stats about the search results with 'ls'
    fd -e svg -X inkscape  # open all SVG files in Inkscape
    
  • Support for 24-bit color codes (when specified via LS_COLORS) as well as different font styles (bold, italic, underline).

Changes

  • A few performance improvements, in particular when printing lots of colorized results to the console, see #370
  • The LS_COLORS handling has been "outsourced" to a separate crate (https://github.com/sharkdp/lscolors) that is now being used by other tools as well: fselect, lsd. For details, see #363.

Other

  • fd will be available in Ubuntu Disco DIngo (19.04), see #373 (@sylvestre)
  • This release should come with a static ARM binary (arm-unknown-linux-musleabihf), see #320 (@duncanfinney)
  • Various documentation improvements, see #389

Thanks

Special thanks to @alexmaco for his awesome work on refactoring and code improvements! (see #401, #398, and #383)

v7.2.0

Features

  • Added support for filtering by file modification time by adding two new options --changed-before <date|duration> and --changed-within <..>. For more details, see the --help text, the man page, the relevant issue #165 and the PR #339 (@kimsnj)
  • Added --show-errors option to enable the display of filesystem error messages such as "permission denied", see #311 (@psinghal20 and @majecty)
  • Added --maxdepth as a (hidden) alias for --max-depth, see #323 (@mqudsi)
  • Added --search-path option which can be supplied to replace the positional path argument at any position.

Changes

  • Loosen strict handling of missing --ignore-file, see #280 (@psinghal20)
  • Re-enabled .ignore files, see #156.

Bugfixes

  • fd could previously get stuck when run from the root directory in the presence of zombie processes. This curious bug has been fixed in Rust 1.29 and higher. For more details, see #288, rust-lang/rust#50619 and the fix

Other

  • fd has officially landed in Debian! See #345 for details. Thanks goes to @sylvestre, @paride and possibly others I don't know about.
  • Added Chinese translation of README (@chinanf-boy)

Thanks

A special thanks goes to @joshleeb for his amazing improvements throughout the code base (new tests, refactoring work and various other things)!

  • Added ripgrep aliases -u and -uu for --no-ignore and --no-ignore --hidden, respectively (@unsignedint, see #92)
  • Added -i, --ignore-case (@iology, see #95)
  • Made smart case really smart (@reima, see #103)
  • Added RedoxOS support (@goyox86, see #131)

Changes
