External Compatibility Breaks


New Features

* New option ``--overwrite-tags`` for ``bzr pull`` and ``bzr push``.
  (Jelmer Vernooij, #681792)


* Colocated branches can now be addressed using the 'co:NAME' rather than
  the more complex 'file://.,branch=NAME'. (Jelmer Vernooij, #833665)

Bug Fixes

* "bzr missing" now shows tag names when displaying revision information.
  (#559072, Neil Martinsen-Burrell)

* Fix ``branch.conf`` saving when unlocking the branch for BranchFormat4.
  (Vincent Ladeuil, #1020007)

* Implement ``ResponseFile.readline`` and ``ReponseFile.tell``,
  fixing some clones over HTTP. (Jelmer Vernooij, #963769)

* Option values set on locked branches should be saved only when the branch
  is finally unlocked. (Vincent Ladeuil, #948339)


* Document "bzr lp-propose", "bzr register-branch" and
  the other Launchpad plugin commands in bzr(1).
  (Jelmer Vernooij, #843801, #163995)

* Force format registration to avoid traceback when the
  registry is empty. (Vincent Ladeuil, #956860)

* Generate ``ENVIRONMENT`` section in bzr(1) from known environment variable
  list rather than hardcoding. (Jelmer Vernooij, #197618)

API Changes

* ``register_filter_stack_map`` and ``lazy_register_filter_stack_map``
  are noew deprecated. Instead, use ``filter_stacks_registry.register``
  and ``filter_stacks_registry.register_lazy``.
  (Jelmer Vernooij)

* Remove deprecated Branch.import_last_revision(). (Jelmer Vernooij)

* Remove deprecated ``RepositoryFormat.register_format``.
  (Jelmer Vernooij)

* Remove deprecated Repository.get_ancestry(). (Jelmer Vernooij)

* Remove deprecated Repository.iter_reverse_revision_history().
  (Jelmer Vernooij)

* The previously deprecated ``bzrlib.annotate.annotate_file`` function
  has been removed. (Jelmer Vernooij)




* Fix test failures by removing a remaining reference to ``features.sphinx``
  which isn't needed anymore since we don't test the texinfo sphinx builder
  anymore either. (Vincent Ladeuil)
