Gmane
From: Tommy Pettersson <ptp <at> lysator.liu.se>
Subject: darcs 1.0.6rc1 release
Newsgroups: gmane.comp.version-control.darcs.user
Date: Monday 20th February 2006 02:02:22 UTC (over 11 years ago)
This is what darcs 1.0.6 will look like, if noone finds anything
that needs to be fixed. I'm thinking mainly of build problems,
scripting and interfacing problems and undetected bugs
introduced by the fixes and new features.

Important bugfixes:
  * Fix bug in Get --tag that produced a corrupt repository (issue67, Edwin
    Thomson).
  * Revert optimization that sometimes applied patches incorrectly and
    corrupted the repository. This make darcs somewhat slower when applying
    patches. A full pull of the darcs repository itself takes 50% longer.
    (issue128, Tommy Pettersson).

Noticeable changes:
  * Remote apply does not use cd to change current directory to target
    directory any more. It uses --repodir when invoking remote darcs. This
may
    break some darcs wrappers. (Victor Hugo Borja Rodriguez)
  * Add newline between long comment and changed files list in dry-run
summary
    to remove ambiguity (Edwin Thomson).
  * Removed the helper program darcs-createrepo. It was used for guided
settup
    of a darcs repository and a corresponding user account to accept
patches
    from signed emails. (issue14, Jason Dagit)

Bugfixes:
  * Fix --set-scripts-executable to work also when getting a local
repository.
    (issue38, Eric Kow)
  * Fix bug with non-existing directories. (David Roundy)
  * Allow rename to different case (RT #466, Eric Kow).
  * Bugfix for handling of absolute paths in Windows (issue47, Will Glozer)
  * Bugfix for --sendmail-command in Windows (Esa Ilari Vuokko).
  * Make apply --verify work with GnuPG in Windows (Esa Ilari Vuokko)

New features:
  * Extended date matching functionality: ISO 8601 dates and intervals, a
    larger subset of English like "yesterday at noon" (issue31/RT#34, Eric
    Kow).
  * Added support for pulling from multiple repositories with one pull. The
    choice of --union/--intersection determines whether all new patches are
    pulled, or just those which are in all source repositories. This
feature
    implements a suggestion by Junio Hamano of git. (David Roundy)
  * Support --interactive option in changes command (issue59, Zachary P.
    Landau).
  * Check paths when applying patches to files and directories to stop
    maliciously handcrafted patches from modifying files outside of the
    repository or inside darcs private directories (issue48, Tommy
    Pettersson).

Noticeable contributions:
  * Ian Lynagh refactored the unix/window compatibility code.
  * Peter Strand made several fixes to make darcs build on Windows.
  * Bill Trost updated and improved the documentation.
  * Jason Dagit removed several annoying errors from the test suite so it
    runs smother.
  * Zooko made fixes to and improved the cygwin-wrapper.
