If you are concerned about upgrading your login shell, don't worry - you don't actually need to do that - you just need to have a copy of Bash 4.3 in your path before the OSX included Bash executable (version 3.2.57).

Fortunately, if you install the updated version through Homebrew, it will automatically match those requirements.
