bzr 2.4b3 released

Written for Bazaar by Vincent Ladeuil on 2011-05-31

We have a new beta release: the third one in the 2.4 series (2.4.0 is planned to be released in August 2011).

Our beta releases are suitable for everyday use but you may encounter small incompatibilities with some plugins.

Since this is our third beta, most of them have already been addressed though; so file bugs for the remaining ones !

All fixes done on our previous stable releases are included (it's always the case but it's worth reminding).

I'm happy to thank everyone who contributed to this release whether you sent merge proposals, patches, suggestions and feedback, this is much appreciated, keep them coming !

Bazaar is now available for download from as a source tarball.

Installers have been built in record time after the source freeze for windows and OSX.

Packages for Ubuntu are available in the beta ppa:

Note that we've stopped supporting python-2.4/2.5 and hardy there for the *beta*, the 2.3 stable series will maintain compatibility with python2.4.
