Installing on macOS kills zsh history?

Just installed using the latest installer from on latest Ventura (13.4).

Immediately zsh in stops remembering history.

The way I found to get zsh to remember history at the moment is adding


to ~/.zshrc

Is there another way around this? This has happened to me on two seperate machines. I explicitly tested zsh before installing.

No clue what would cause that. I did see some general stuff about the terminal not saving history depending on how you close it:

Wondering if that could be related. Did you try ITerm2? I use it when I develop on MacOS and it’s really good.

No I didn’t try iterm2. Like I said, I had tested the history immediately before installing and immediately afterwards.
