:2.0.5: 2010-03-23

This fifth release in our 2.0 series addresses several user-inconvenience
bugs. None are critical, but upgrading is recommended for all users on
earlier 2.0 releases.

Bug Fixes
*********

* Avoid ``malloc(0)`` in ``patiencediff``, which is non-portable.
  (Martin Pool, #331095)

* Concurrent autopacking is more resilient to already-renamed pack files.
  If we find that a file we are about to obsolete is already obsoleted, we
  do not try to rename it, and we leave the file in ``obsolete_packs``.
  The code is also fault tolerant if a file goes missing, assuming that
  another process already removed the file.
  (John Arbash Meinel, Gareth White, #507557)

* Cope with the lockdir ``held/info`` file being empty, which seems to
  happen fairly often if the process is suddenly interrupted while taking
  a lock.
  (Martin Pool, #185103)

* Give the warning about potentially slow cross-format fetches much
  earlier on in the fetch operation. Don't show this message during
  upgrades, and show the correct format indication for remote
  repositories.
  (Martin Pool, #456077, #515356, #513157)

* Handle renames correctly when there are files or directories that
  differ only in case. (Chris Jones, Martin Pool, #368931)

* If ``bzr push --create-prefix`` triggers an unexpected ``NoSuchFile``
  error, report that error rather than failing with an unhelpful
  ``UnboundLocalError``.
  (Andrew Bennetts, #423563)

* Running ``bzr`` command without any arguments now shows bzr
  version number along with rest of the help text.
  (Parth Malwankar, #369501)

* Use osutils.O_NOINHERIT for some files on win32 to avoid PermissionDenied
  errors.
  (Inada Naoki, #524560)

Documentation
*************

* Added ``location-alias`` help topic.
  (Andrew Bennetts, #337834)

* Fixed CHM generation by moving the NEWS section template into
  a separate file. (Ian Clatworthy, #524184)
