bzr 1.1rc1 2008-01-05
---------------------

  CHANGES:

   * The syntax ``bzr diff branch1 branch2`` is no longer supported.
     Use ``bzr diff branch1 --new branch2`` instead. This change has
     been made to remove the ambiguity where ``branch2`` is in fact a
     specific file to diff within ``branch1``.

  FEATURES:

   * New option to use custom template-based formats in ``bzr version-info``.
     (Lukáš Lalinský)

   * diff '--using' allows an external diff tool to be used for files.
     (Aaron Bentley)

   * New "lca" merge-type for fast everyday merging that also supports
     criss-cross merges. (Aaron Bentley)

  IMPROVEMENTS:

   * ``annotate`` now doesn't require a working tree. (Lukáš Lalinský,
     #90049)

   * ``branch`` and ``checkout`` can now use files from a working tree to
     to speed up the process. For checkout, this requires the new
     --files-from flag. (Aaron Bentley)

   * ``bzr diff`` now sorts files in alphabetical order. (Aaron Bentley)

   * ``bzr diff`` now works on branches without working trees. Tree-less
     branches can also be compared to each other and to working trees using
     the new diff options ``--old`` and ``--new``. Diffing between branches,
     with or without trees, now supports specific file filtering as well.
     (Ian Clatworthy, #6700)

   * ``bzr pack`` now orders revision texts in topological order, with newest
     at the start of the file, promoting linear reads for ``bzr log`` and the
     like. This partially fixes #154129. (Robert Collins)

   * Merge directives now fetch prerequisites from the target branch if
     needed. (Aaron Bentley)

   * pycurl now handles digest authentication.
     (Vincent Ladeuil)

   * ``reconfigure`` can now convert from repositories. (Aaron Bentley)

   * ``-l`` is now a short form for ``--limit`` in ``log``. (Matt Nordhoff)

   * ``merge`` now warns when merge directives cause cherrypicks.
     (Aaron Bentley)

   * ``split`` now supported, to enable splitting large trees into smaller
     pieces. (Aaron Bentley)

  BUGFIXES:

   * Better handle short reads when processing multiple range requests.
     (Vincent Ladeuil, #179368)

   * build_tree acceleration uses the correct path when a file has been moved.
     (Aaron Bentley)

   * ``commit`` now succeeds when a checkout and its master branch share a
     repository. (Aaron Bentley, #177592)

   * Fixed error reporting of unsupported timezone format in
     ``log --timezone``. (Lukáš Lalinský, #178722)

   * Fixed Unicode encoding error in ``ignored`` when the output is
     redirected to a pipe. (Lukáš Lalinský)

   * Fix traceback when sending large response bodies over the smart protocol
     on Windows. (Andrew Bennetts, #115781)

   * Fix ``urlutils.relative_url`` for the case of two ``file:///`` URLs
     pointed to different logical drives on Windows.
     (Alexander Belchenko, #90847)

   * HTTP test servers are now compatible with the http protocol version 1.1.
     (Vincent Ladeuil, #175524)

   * _KnitParentsProvider.get_parent_map now handles requests for ghosts
     correctly, instead of erroring or attributing incorrect parents to ghosts.
     (Aaron Bentley)

   * ``merge --weave --uncommitted`` now works. (Aaron Bentley)

   * pycurl authentication handling was broken and incomplete. Fix handling of
     user:pass embedded in the urls.
     (Vincent Ladeuil, #177643)

   * Files inside non-directories are now handled like other conflict types.
     (Aaron Bentley, #177390)

   * ``reconfigure`` is able to convert trees into lightweight checkouts.
     (Aaron Bentley)

   * Reduce lockdir timeout to 0 when running ``bzr serve``. (Andrew Bennetts,
     #148087)

   * Test that the old ``version_info_format`` functions still work, even
     though they are deprecated. (John Arbash Meinel, ShenMaq, #177872)

   * Transform failures no longer cause ImmortalLimbo errors (Aaron Bentley,
     #137681)

   * ``uncommit`` works even when the commit messages of revisions to be
     removed use characters not supported in the terminal encoding.
     (Aaron Bentley)

   * When dumb http servers return whole files instead of the requested ranges,
     read the remaining bytes by chunks to avoid overflowing network buffers.
     (Vincent Ladeuil, #175886)

  DOCUMENTATION:

   * Minor tweaks made to the bug tracker integration documentation.
     (Ian Clatworthy)

   * Reference material has now be moved out of the User Guide and added
     to the User Reference. The User Reference has gained 4 sections as
     a result: Authenication Settings, Configuration Settings, Conflicts
     and Hooks. All help topics are now dumped into text format in the
     doc/en/user-reference directory for those who like browsing that
     information in their editor. (Ian Clatworthy)

   * *Using Bazaar with Launchpad* tutorial added. (Ian Clatworthy)

  INTERNALS:

    * find_* methods available for BzrDirs, Branches and WorkingTrees.
      (Aaron Bentley)

    * Help topics can now be loaded from files.
      (Ian Clatworthy, Alexander Belchenko)

    * get_parent_map now always provides tuples as its output. (Aaron Bentley)

    * Parent Providers should now implement ``get_parent_map`` returning a
      dictionary instead of ``get_parents`` returning a list.
      ``get_parents`` is now considered deprecated. (John Arbash Meinel)

    * Patience Diff now supports arbitrary python objects, as long as they
      support ``hash()``. (John Arbash Meinel)

  API BREAKS:

  TESTING:

   * Modules can now customise their tests by defining a ``load_tests``
     attribute. ``pydoc bzrlib.tests.TestUtil.TestLoader.loadTestsFromModule``
     for the documentation on this attribute. (Robert Collins)

   * New helper function ``bzrlib.tests.condition_id_re`` which helps
     filter tests based on a regular expression search on the tests id.
     (Robert Collins)

   * New helper function ``bzrlib.tests.condition_isinstance`` which helps
     filter tests based on class. (Robert Collins)

   * New helper function ``bzrlib.tests.exclude_suite_by_condition`` which
     generalises the ``exclude_suite_by_re`` function. (Robert Collins)

   * New helper function ``bzrlib.tests.filter_suite_by_condition`` which
     generalises the ``filter_suite_by_re`` function. (Robert Collins)

   * New helper method ``bzrlib.tests.exclude_tests_by_re`` which gives a new
     TestSuite that does not contain tests from the input that matched a
     regular expression. (Robert Collins)

   * New helper method ``bzrlib.tests.randomize_suite`` which returns a
     randomized copy of the input suite. (Robert Collins)

   * New helper method ``bzrlib.tests.split_suite_by_re`` which splits a test
     suite into two according to a regular expression. (Robert Collins)

   * Parametrize all http tests for the transport implementations, the http
     protocol versions (1.0 and 1.1) and the authentication schemes.
     (Vincent Ladeuil)

   * The ``exclude_pattern`` and ``random_order`` parameters to the function
     ``bzrlib.tests.filter_suite_by_re`` have been deprecated. (Robert Collins)

   * The method ``bzrlib.tests.sort_suite_by_re`` has been deprecated. It is
     replaced by the new helper methods added in this release. (Robert Collins)
