Trying to decide if I want to bother upgrading my bash shell to v4.x; if it comes with Mavericks, I probably won't, but I can't find much information on what versions of bash come with what versions of OS X, let alone with Mavericks specifically.

Anyone running a Mavericks beta want to bash --version for me?

    I can't see it as much of a bother, install bash from macports and use that. Takes a couple minutes, you're not disturbing anything else, and you're not modifying your system. – Kuba Ober Oct 23 '13 at 17:21

  • For completeness sake, the same version is shipped with the release version of Mavericks. – mjturner Oct 29 '13 at 12:02

That should spell it out.
