Release notes 

bzr 1.6rc2 2008-08-13

This release candidate has a few minor bug fixes, and some regression
fixes for Windows.


    * ``bzr upgrade`` on remote branches accessed via bzr:// and
      bzr+ssh:// now works. (Andrew Bennetts)

    * Change the ``get_format_description()`` strings for
      ``RepositoryFormatKnitPack5`` et al to be single line messages.
      (Aaron Bentley)

    * Fix for a regression on Win32 where we would try to call
      ``os.listdir()`` on a file and not catch the exception properly.
      (Windows raises a different exception.) This would manifest in
      places like ``bzr rm file`` or ``bzr switch``.
      (Mark Hammond, John Arbash Meinel)

    * ``Inventory.copy()`` was failing to set the revision property for
      the root entry. (Jelmer Vernooij)

    * sftp transport: added missing ``FileExists`` case to
      ``_translate_io_exception`` (Christophe Troestler, #123475)

    * The help for ``bzr ignored`` now suggests ``bzr ls --ignored`` for
      scripting use. (Robert Collins, #3834)

    * The default ``annotate`` logic will now always assign the
      last-modified value of a line to one of the revisions that modified
      it, rather than a merge revision. This would happen when both sides
      claimed to have modified the line resulting in the same text. The
      choice is arbitrary but stable, so merges in different directions
      will get the same results. (John Arbash Meinel, #232188)
