./devel/py-mercurial, Fast, lightweight source control management system

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 5.0.2, Package name: py27-mercurial-5.0.2, Maintainer: wiz

Mercurial is a free, distributed source control management tool.
It efficiently handles projects of any size and offers an easy and
intuitive interface.

Mercurial efficiently handles projects of any size and kind. Every
clone contains the whole project history, so most actions are local,
fast and convenient. Mercurial supports a multitude of workflows
and you can easily enhance its functionality with extensions.

It is easy to learn: You can follow our simple guide to learn how
to revision your documents with Mercurial, or just use the quick
start to get going instantly. A short overview of Mercurial's
decentralized model is also available.

And it just works: Mercurial strives to deliver on each of its
promises. Most tasks simply work on the first try and without
requiring arcane knowledge.

Log message:
mercurial: update to 5.0

Still building with python-2.7 only, but this version has beta support
for python 3.x.

Mercurial 5.0 release

This is an overview of the 5.0 release.

1. New Features

    ui.relative-paths option for getting relative path output from most \ 
commands. This is enabled when ui.tweakdefaults is enabled.

    expectsize() revset errors out if revset has unexpected number of elements.

    config() template function for getting a config value.

    {negrev} template keyword shows the negative revision number. This is \ 
convenient because it is usually shorter than the positive number, but note that \ 
it is less stable.

    hg uncommit now has an --allow-dirty-working-copy option.

    hg shelve now has --keep option, which shelves but also leaves the working \ 
directory unchanged.

    hg diff will now include specified files in subrepos.

    hg recover now has a --no-verify option

1.1. Python 3 Support (Beta)

Mercurial 5.0 has beta level support for running on Python 3.5, 3.6, and 3.7. \ 
The Mercurial distribution itself and all extensions bundled with it should work \ 
on these Python versions.

To use Mercurial with Python 3, invoke setup.py with a Python 3 interpreter or \ 
set the PYTHON variable to a Python 3 interpreter when invoking the Makefile. \ 
e.g. python3.7 setup.py install or make install-home PYTHON=python3.7.

3rd party extensions will likely need to be ported to support running on Python \ 
3 and attempts to run many existing extensions with a Python 3 powered Mercurial \ 
will result in extension loading failures. See the Python3 page for more.

While the Mercurial test suite has a >99% pass rate when running with Python \ 
3.5, 3.6, and 3.7, we anticipate that there are still many Python 3 bugs \ 
lingering in Mercurial. Please report Python 3 issues using the instructions at \ 
BugTracker.

If you package Mercurial or distribute it to users, we do not recommend making \ 
Python 3 the default at this time.

Python 3 is not yet very well tested on Windows and there are likely several \ 
more lingering issues on Windows compared to Linux, macOS, and other UNIX-like \ 
platforms.

1.2. Updated Windows Installers

Windows installer packaging has been transitioned away from ad-hoc processes \ 
employed on individual contributors' personal machines to occurring in \ 
reproducible infrastructure driven by code in the Mercurial repository itself. \ 
This transition should enable Windows packaging and releasing to be more \ 
reliable and reproducible.

As part of this transition, there are changes to the Windows installers.

1.2.1. Inno Setup .exe Installer Changes

    Python has been upgraded from 2.7.15 to 2.7.16
    add_path.exe has been removed and the Inno installer now updates PATH via a \ 
Pascal script that is part of the installer
    The dulwich package has been upgraded from version 0.18.3 to 0.19.11
    The keyring package has been upgraded to version 18.0.1
    The pygments package has been upgraded to version 2.3.1
    The urllib3 package is now included
    The MSVC Runtime DLLs (msvcm90.dll, msvcp90.dll, and msvcr90.dll) have been \ 
upgraded from version 9.0.21022.8 to 9.0.30729.9518
    Various tcl/tk Python packages are now included (making the Python \ 
distribution more complete)
    The pywin32 package is no longer included (pywin32 has not been required by \ 
Mercurial for years)
    Known issue: the distutils package is broken
    (x86 only) Python .pyd and .dll extension modules and support libraries are \ 
now installed as standalone files instead of bundled in the library.zip file. \ 
This behavior is now consistent with 64-bit installers.

2. New Experimental Features

3. Other Notable Features

4. Other Improvements

    Improved color scheme for histedit's curses interface, making it more \ 
consistent with the curses hunk selector.

5. Bug Fixes

    Histedit's curse interface has improved support for non ascii characters.

6. Backwards Compatibility Changes

    color: change color of grep.rev label (BC)
    commit: if interactive, look elsewhere for whitespace settings (BC)

    diff: make sure we output stat even when --git is not passed (issue4037) (BC)
    uncommit: abort if an explicitly given file cannot be uncommitted (BC)
    The Windows Inno installers no longer ship the pywin32 package. This package \ 
was being bundled for historical reasons. Mercurial stopped using pywin32 \ 
several years ago and the disappearance of this package should not have any \ 
meaningful impact.
    The 32-bit Windows Inno installers no longer distribute w9xpopen.exe. This \ 
should only impact people running Mercurial on Windows 95, 98, or ME.
    The Windows MSI installers no longer include the Python sphinx package and \ 
its various dependencies.
    The Windows MSI installers no longer include the pywin32 Python package.
    The Windows MSI installers no longer include the enum and future Python packages.

Log message:
py-mercurial: update to 4.9.1.

Mercurial 4.9.1 (2019-03-19)

A regularly scheduled bugfix release, late due to vacations and similar \ 
disruptions at the regular time.

1.1. commands

    record: prevent commits that don't pick up dirty subrepo changes (issue6102)

1.2. extensions

    rebase: add missing dashes in help text

1.3. unsorted

Log message:
py-mercurial: Add upstream test fix.

Now all tests pass on NetBSD.
   2019-02-14 10:53:06 by Thomas Klausner | Files touched by this commit (4) | Package updated
Log message:
py-mercurial: update to 4.9.

1. Security Fixes

It was possible to use symlinks and subrepositories to defeat
Mercurial's path-checking logic and write files outside a repository.
This has been fixed. Users on older versions can either disable
subrepositories with

[subrepos] allowed = false

in their configuration or by ensuring any cloned repositories don't
contain malicious symlinks.

2. New Features

    'hg histedit' will now present a curses UI if curses is available
    and 'ui.interface' or 'ui.interface.histedit' is set to 'curses'.
    The 'sparse-revlog' delta strategy is enabled by default for
    new repositories.

    See hg help config.format.sparse-revlog for details.

3. Other Notable Features

    New rewrite.update-timestamp=True option to update the commit
    timestamp on history editing (e.g. amend.)

    New ui.message-output=stderr option for scripting, which prevents
    status messages from interleaved.

    New rootglob: filename pattern for a glob that is rooted at
    the root of the repository. See hg help patterns and hg help
    hgignore for details.  Some more reimplementation of ancestry
    algorithms in Rust for better performance.

4. Backwards Compatibility Changes

    Boolean options passed to the logtoprocess extension are now
    formatted as "0" or "1" instead of "None", \ 
"False", or "True".
    The logtoprocess extension no longer supports invalid "ui.log()"
    arguments. A log message is always formatted and passed in to
    the "$MSG1" environment variable.

5. Internal API Changes

    Status messages may be sent to a dedicated stream depending on
    configuration. Don't use "ui.status()", etc. as a shorthand
    for conditional writes. Use "ui.write()" for data output.  Add
    'exthelper' class to simplify extension writing by allowing
    functions, commands, and configitems to be registered via
    annotations. The previous APIs are still available for use.
    The extension hook "extsetup" without a 'ui' argument has been
    deprecated, and will be removed in the next version. Add a 'ui'
    argument to avoid the deprecation warning.
