External Compatibility Breaks


New Features



* ``bzr rmbranch`` now supports removing colocated branches.
  (Jelmer Vernooij, #920653)

* ``bzr rmbranch`` no longer removes active branches unless ``--force``
  is specified. (Jelmer Vernooij, #922953)

Bug Fixes

* Connecting with HTTPS via HTTP now correctly uses the host name of the
  destination rather than the proxy when checking certificates.
  (Martin Packman, #944696)

* Fixed merge tool availability checking and invocation to search the
  Windows App Path registry in addition to the PATH. (Gordon Tyler, #939605)

* Fixed problem with getting errors about failing to open /dev/tty when using
  Bazaar Explorer to sign commits. (Mark Grandi, #847388)

* Fix UnicodeEncodeError when translated progress task messages contain
  non-ascii text. (Martin Packman, #966934)

* Make sure configuration options can provide their own help topic.
  (Jelmer Vernooij, #941672)


* The alpha-quality texinfo sphinx builder has been deprecated. Sphinx >=
  1.1.2 now provides a better one. Most of the documentation can now be
  generated to the texinfo format with ``make texinfo-sphinx``. This will
  generate both the ``.texi`` files and the ``.info`` ones.
  (Vincent Ladeuil, #940164)

API Changes



* Add support for pyftpdlib >= 0.7.0 and drop support for previous pyftpdlib
  versions. (Vincent Ladeuil, #956027)

* Run smoketest for isolated in a tempdir. (Martin Packman, #140874)
