-= TortoiseHg 1.0 =
-
-Released on March 5, 2010
-
-Codenamed **Varnish**
-
-== Packaged Versions ==
-
-The following products are included in our TortoiseHg Windows installers.
-
-* Mercurial 1.5
-* Python 2.6.4 [1]
-* GTK 2.18.7
-* PyGtk 2.16.0
-* python-svn 1.6.6 (for use by hgsubversion and hg convert)
-* dulwich (for use by hg-git and others)
-* Perfarce extension
-* hgeol extension
-* mercurial keychain extension
-* TortoiseSVN's doc diff scripts 
-* See extension-versions.txt in the install directory for the complete
-* list of bundled extensions and modules and their versions
-
-[1] If you used any hooks or extensions with previous versions of
-TortoiseHg, and those hooks or extensions added local Python
-site-packages to sys.path, you will have to upgrade your Python to 2.6
-to stay current with TortoiseHg 1.0.  Failure to do so will cause hgtk
-to not function correctly.  You will see errors on the console about
-failing to import gdialog.
-
-== Behavior Changes ==
-
-=== Entirely new installer ===
-
-The new MSI installers can perform installs and upgrades/downgrades (of
-previous MSI installs) without reboot and perform silent installs. The
-MSI installer packages are now digitally signed. 
-
-There are two important details to be aware of:
-
-1) **You must uninstall pre-1.0 (InnoSetup based) installers before
-installing 1.0.  Before uninstalling the old version, backup your user
-Mercurial.ini file.**  The old installers have a tendency to delete your
-user Mercurial.ini file when they are uninstalled.
-
-2) **There are now separate x86 and x64 installer packages.**  Download
-the appropriate package for your platform.
-
-After the first install of an msi installer (not an upgrade or downgrade
-from a previously installed msi installer), a logout/login of all users
-is required to have the overlay icon handler initialized. The context
-menu works without logout/login. Later upgrade (or downgrade) installs
-won't need a logout/login on Vista and Windows 7, as all affected
-programs are shut down by the installer and explorer is restarted
-automatically by the installer.
-
-On Windows XP, a logout/login of all users after every msi upgrade or
-downgrade install is required. If in doubt, doing a reboot will make
-sure all users will get the updated files loaded.
-
-If you don't install any shell extension at all (overlay icons and shell
-context menu), then no logout/login is needed at all.
-
-If you don't install the 32 bit ("x86") shell extension on 64 bit
-versions of Windows, there will be no need to shutdown any 32 bit
-programs on later upgrades/downgrades (which may be handy, because,
-typically, lots of programs -- e.g. email clients, browsers -- are still
-32 bit only). On 64 bit Windows Vista and Windows 7, explorer is a 64
-bit process, so there is no need to install the 32 bit shell extension
-on these systems in order to have the overlay icons and context menu
-working in explorer. 
-
-There are more installer details near the end of the release notes.
-
-=== Branch Head Detection ===
-
-In Mercurial 1.5, the 'hg heads' command was changed to make it more
-branch centric.  In particular, a revision with children on other
-branches but no child on it's own branch is still considered a branch
-head.  For example, if you merge the head of branch A into branch B,
-branch A's head is still considered a repository head even though it has
-a child in branch B.
-
-TortoiseHg tries to follow along with this semantic change, primarily in
-the commit tool.  We no longer warn of creating new heads when
-committing on a branch head that has children in other branches.  And
-similarly merging heads of two branches no longer indicates the reducing
-of the number of heads.  Refs #953
-
-=== Shell extension configuration removed from taskbar app ===
-
-The Shell extension configuration tool is now launched from its own
-shell context menu option named "Explorer extension settings".  The
-dialog no longer has a logging feature, so debugging overlay refresh
-issues must be done by manually starting the thgtaskbar.exe application
-from a command line window.
-
-=== CopyHash configurable removed ===
-
-The tortoisehg.copyhash configurable, marked deprecated in 0.9, was
-removed in this release.  Use the 'Copy Hash' context menu option in the
-Repository Explorer instead.
-
-=== Skip Diff Window removed ===
-
-The tortoisehg.nodiffwin configurable has been made obsolete by an
-overhaul of the visual diff system.  The system automatically detects
-when the visual diff window is required.
-
-== Enhancements ==
-
-=== Visual Diff Overhaul ===
-
-The visual diff infrastructure was largely overhauled in this release to
-detect diff tools on your computer and use them optimally.  Among other
-improvements, it now supports visual diffs of renames and copies, as
-well as many common binary formats.  For details, see
-
-http://tortoisehg.bitbucket.org/manual/1.0/common.html#visual-diffs
-
-Refs #567, #166
-
-=== Import Dialog ===
-
-TortoiseHg can now import (or qimport) patches from a dialog which
-supports file and folder drag-n-drop.
-
-See http://tortoisehg.bitbucket.org/manual/1.0/patches.html#import-patches for details
-
-=== Perforce Integration via perfarce extension ===
-
-TortoiseHg can now operate as a front end to a Perforce client via the
-use of the perfarce extension.
-
-See http://tortoisehg.bitbucket.org/manual/1.0/extensions.html#perfarce for details
-
-=== HTTP(s)/SMTP keychain integration ===
-
-The mercurial-keyring extension is now bundled.  It caches passwords for
-HTTP(S) and SMTP requests.  It must be enabled and configured to
-activate the cache behavior.
-
-See http://tortoisehg.bitbucket.org/manual/1.0/extensions.html#mercurial-keyring
-for details.
-
-Refs #103, #854
-
-=== Changeset Message Links ===
-
-The Repository Explorer now parses your commit messages for changeset
-hashes, HTTP(S) URLs, and bug tracker links.  For more information, see 
-
-http://tortoisehg.bitbucket.org/manual/1.0/changelog.html#message-parsing
-

-
-== Installer Changes ==
-
-TortoiseOverlays are now included as "merge modules" so they no longer
-appear in **Add/Remove Programs** as separate applications.  It should
-be safe to uninstall old versions of TortoiseOverlays you find on your
-computer at the same time you uninstall your older TortoiseHg installs,
-so long as you do not have other Tortoise utilities that use them
-(TortoiseCVS or TortoiseBzr, for instance).  Future upgrades and
-uninstalls should handle TortoiseOverlays seamlessly.
-
-Similarly, we include the MSVC CRT redistributables using MS's approved
-merge modules.
-
-Because of these first two changes, the MSI installers require elevated
-install privileges.  We do not intend to make any ZIP style installers
-for download, though users are free to make them for their own use.
-Refs #677
-
-The new MSI packages will refuse to upgrade an old InnoSetup install.
-The old install must be removed and rebooted before installing the MSI
-package. The good news is this should be the last reboot required by
-THG. MSI packages will upgrade or downgrade other MSI packages without
-reboot.
-
-If the old InnoSetup installer created your user Mercurial.ini file (if
-it asked for your username and email address) the old installer will try
-to delete that file when you uninstall it. We *highly* recommend you
-backup your user Mercurial.ini file before uninstalling your existing
-TortoiseHg package. The new MSI installers do not have this problem. 
-
-MSI's use the Windows Installer framework, so you get safer upgrades,
-repair facilities, and safe rollbacks after errors.
-
-There are now separate packages for x86 and x64 targets. They will
-refuse to install on inappropriate architectures so just be aware of the
-split.
-
-The x64 package correctly installs the x86 portions under
-${ProgramFiles(x86)} and the x64 portion under ${CommonProgramFiles}.
-This is a change from the pre-1.0 installers.
-
-
-
-== TortoiseHg 0.9 ==
-
-Released November 16, 2009
-
-Codenamed **Sandpaper**
-
-=== Packaged Versions ===
-
-TortoiseHg 0.9 requires Mercurial version 1.4
-
-=== Behavior Changes ===
-
-* dropped support for external commit tools
-* potentially harmful extensions are no longer loaded for you.  MQ, qup,
-rebase, transplant, and fetch must be enabled by the user to unlock their
-support inside the TortoiseHg tools.
-* The synchronize tool has been deprecated.  Most of it's functionality has
-been merged into the changelog tool.  Synchronize will be removed in a future
-release.
-* commit tool - after a commit, all remaining files are unchecked
-* commit/status/etc - context menus were refactored as per issue #133
-
-**Note** During upgrade, it is possible for the taskbar app to crash when the
-installer closes it.  This only happens if the taskbar config dialog has been
-opened, and it only seems to happen on slower XP machines.  It is also
-harmless.  The installer was trying to kill it, it just happened to die in a
-non-orderly fashion.  Just ignore the crash.  If you don't want to see this
-happen, simply exit the taskbar app before starting the upgrade.
-
-=== Enhancements ===

-* shelve - 'shelf contents' tab
-
-=== Bug fixes ===
-
-* changelog - clicking on cset links loads revisions if needed
-* status - catch IOErrors during repo.status
-* rename - fix error handling when no arguments specified
-* too many more to enumerate
-
-=== Installer / Source Changes ===
-
-* Spell Checker depends on gtkspell.  In Debian 5 it is included in the package
-python-gnome2-extras, in sid probably in python-gtkspell
-* [[http://code.google.com/p/iniparse/|iniparse]] was unbundled from the source repository
-* The hggtk and thgutil python packages were moved into tortoisehg/hgtk and tortoisehg/util, respectively

-= 0.8 Release July 1, 2009 =
-
-== C++ Shell Extension ==
-
-The Python shell extension has been removed in favor of a pure C++ shell
-extension which directly reads the Mercurial dirstate for overlays, and
-produces hard-coded context menus.  This should fix much of the
-interoperability problems reported in issue #67, and it fixes the
-overlay performance problems we have suffered since version 0.1.
-
-To support fast overlay icons, we have introduced a taskbar application
-(thgtaskbar.exe, programmed in Python) that externalizes the refreshing
-of cache information (new cache file ".hg/thgstatus") into a separate
-server process (started on user logon), controlled by the shell
-extension over a named pipe. thgtaskbar.exe adds a systray icon with an
-options dialog to control settings affecting the shell extension.
-
-== X64 Support ==
-
-The C++ TortoiseHg shell extension works properly in x64 Vista and Win7
-environments.  Release 0.8 does not support having 32bit and 64bit
-extensions installed on the same machine.  We do plan to support this in
-0.9.
-

-TortoiseHg 0.8 is the first release to include translations. This
-release has translations for 13 locales.  Eight of those are full or

-* Uses apple key for command sequences (%-W, %-Q, %-D)
-
-== Behavior Changes ==
-
-The Ctrl-O accelerator in the commit tool removed, replaced by a
-Ctrl-Enter generic accelerator that is common to many dialogs.
-
-Shell extension configuration removed from Mercurial.ini.  However they
-are editable in the taskbar options dialog and changes made there take
-effect immediately.
-
-There is no supported method in 0.8 for de-registering the shell
-extension without uninstalling THG.  You can globally disable the
-overlays via it's configurable option, but the context menu is always
-present.
-
-Merge and unmerge were removed from the shell context menu.  You must
-use the changelog tool to perform merges.
-
-The changelog tool does not show all file diffs in a changeset right
-away.  It only shows the first file's diffs.  To see all diffs at once,
-the user must click 'All Files' at the top of the file list.
-
-Changelog, commit, status, etc all obey a maximum file size for showing
-diffs (default is 1MB).  Files above this size will not be diffed for
-performance reasons (obviously you can still commit them).  This max
-diff limit is configurable per-repository via the settings dialog.
-
-The default dbl-click action in the Changelog tool is now visual diff.
-In previous releases it was 'Display Change'.
-
-Commit, status, shelve no longer show all diffs at once.  They only show
-diffs for the selected file.  This change was made for performance
-reasons.
-
-The 'show diffs' button was removed from commit, status, shelve.
-
-hgtk forks a separate process for GUI commands, freeing up the CLI.
-HGTK_NOFORK environment variable and the --nofork argument disable the
-forking behavior.  This will be user configurable in 0.9.
-
-== Installer / Source Changes ==
-
-The hgtk script has been moved from contrb/ into the project root.
-
-The hgproc script and batch file have been removed.
-
-The tortoise python package has been removed.
-
-The thgutil package has been added.
-
-The tracelog application has been removed, since THG no longer uses
-win32traceutil.  Dbgview from sysinternals can be used to debug the new
-shell extension.
-
-The forest and qct extensions are no longer bundled.  Forest is being
-replaced by a core Mercurial feature (subrepo) in hg-1.3, and qct has
-not been included in THG since 0.6.  Both extensions can still be used
-with THG 0.8, you must download them and then specify their full path in
-your user Mercurial.ini file.
-
-We no longer bundle extra GTK themes.  We only ship MS-Windows since it
-now works correctly on all the platforms we're interested in.
-
-We no longer bundle msvcp71.dll and msvcr.dll
-
-We no longer bundle Putty.exe and Puttygen.exe, but Pageant is still
-included.
-
-We now bundle win32 and x64 versions of TortoiseOverlays.
-
-
-= Release 0.7 March 1, 2009 =
-
-Bug fixes since 0.7:
-
-* thgutil: UNC paths should be filtered by 'localdisks' config
-* serve: direct web browser at loopback address
-* shlib: moved app data to %APPDATA%\TortoiseHg on Windows
-* thgconfig: UTF-8 fixes
-* thgconfig: show description of selected item
-* thgconfig: move 'bottom diffs' to tortoisehg page
-* datamine: fix markup problem in status bar
-* sync: allow bundles without .hg extension
-* sync: handle non-ascii paths and aliases
-* status: prevent traceback caused by toggling rename diffs
-* update: fix update to rev 0 from changelog viewer
-* hgtK: follow 'hg version' convention for 'hgtk version'
-
-New features and improvements in 0.7:
-
-  * Status window now supports shelving of selected changes.
-    Unknown files are now displayed by default, hg status convention.
-
-  * Commit window now supports commit of selected changes (record-style)
-    or shelving of selected changes.

-    Added a ctrl-o key accelerator for initiating a commit.
-    Added support for refreshing an applied MQ patch.
-    Improved support for merge (two parent) commits.
-
-  * Qct has been unbundled and must be downloaded separately.  We
-    strongly suggest you use the internal tool instead, as it has better
-    change selection support than Qct and it is much better integrated
-    into TortoiseHg.
-
-  * The tortoisehg.commit configuration setting has been obsoleted.
-    TortoiseHg will always use the internal commit tool by default,
-    unless the user selects Qct as the prefered *external* commit tool.
-    Settings->Global->Commit tab->External Commit Tool
-
-  * Synchronize window now supports reading bundle files (*.hg).
-    Recognizes whether it has been launched in push or pull mode
-
-  * The changelog window can now generate bundle files 
-    Multiline change summaries can optionally be concatenated
-
-  * New rename window for simple file or directory renames.
-
-  * New rename guessing dialog for detecting renames after they happen.
-
-  * New tool for managing an .hgignore file.
-
-  * The configuration window has been reorganized for simplicity.
-
-  * Nautilus: Fixed file version detection.
-
-  * Hgtk: added --limit option to log.
-          added aliases to dialogs that support many operations.
-          added rename and guess commands.
-
-New features and improvement in 0.6:
-
-  * Updated to Mercurial 1.1.X (1.1.2, as of release). 
-  
-    WARNING:
-    The GUI tools in TortoiseHg 0.6, including hgtk, have been updated to work
-    exclusively with Merecurial 1.1.X, and will not work with older (pre 1.1), 
-    and perhaps even the later, releases of Mercurial.
-  
-  * Explorer shell extensions:
-    - Display all available menus in primary context menu, with non-applicable
-      menu items disabled per selected objects.
-    - Improved 'sensitivity' of context menus. For example, the 'Create 
-      Repository Here' menu will be disabled if the selected object is a file.
-
-  * General improvement and updates:

-New features in 0.3
-
-  * Major improvements to changelog browser.  It is now good enough to
-    deprecate both hgk and hgview.  Neither are bundled with the 0.3
-    binary installer, but both can be added by the user if they wish.
-    Support for external revision log viewers will be dropped in 0.4.
-
-  * The new changelog browser supports filtering by file pattern,
-    keywords, dates, and branches.  It is capable of graphing both the
-    repository changelog and individual filelogs.  Changeset coloring by
-    author is optional (tortoisehg.authorcolor).  All changeset graphing
-    is done incrementally in batches (tortoisehg.graphlimit: 500)
-
-  * New DataMine application for searching history (hg grep) and
-    inspecting file histories (hg annotate).  This new application is
-    tabbed to facilitate debugging sessions where search results and
-    annotations can be grouped together for easy cross-reference.
-
-  * New changeset browser, supports multiple parents intrinsically and
-    supports a number of file-revision features (view at revision, save
-    at revision, annotate at revision, revert to revision, etc).  The
-    new changeset browser is also integrated into the changelog browser.
-
-  * Standardized window layouts.  Close buttons have been moved to the
-    toolbar.  Dialogs that use progress bars now use a standard status
-    bar/progress bar widget.  Tooltips have been added.
-
-  * Hgtk wrapper application for launching TortoiseHg dialogs from the
-    command line
-
-  * Support for an external visual editor: tortoisehg.editor.  Takes
-    precedence over ui.editor when viewing files with TortoiseHg
-
-  * Performance improvements in Mercurial itself (cset 0973501e5f4a)
-
-  * New installer bitmap from Peer Sommerlund
-
-  * Misc: The Synchronize dialog has been improved.  The Web Serve
-    dialog no longer requires a subprocess to run the web server.  The
-    configuration dialog has a number of bug fixes for the paths tab,
-    and now has separators in the drop-down boxes for the varying value
-    types (current, suggested, history). Http authentication has been
-    fixed.  The hg integration library has seen major cleanups.
-
-Bug Fixes in 0.3:
-
-  * [ 1863086 ] "Revision Graph" fail on UNC path
-    Fixed by removing hgk from base install.  Integrated log viewer
-    is UNC path safe.
-  * [ 1851395 ] Total Commander problem
-  * [ 1882074 ] global name 'p' is not defined
-  * [ 1854443 ] View changelog fails
-
-New features in 0.2
-
-  * Gtools has been integrated into TortoiseHg proper. It is no longer
-    bundled as a Mercurial extension. The graphlog extension is now enabled
-    again by default (only usable from the CLI, however).
-
-  * Context menu icons, application window icons. The context menu has been
-    simplified.
-
-  * The changelog browser has a number of new features (filters and context
-    menu options). The tag browser and changelog tagging features have been
-    merged into this tool.
-
-  * Hgview is now the default history viewer, hgk is being deprecated.
-
-  * An email dialog for interfacing with the patchbomb extension. It can be
-    reached from the synchronize dialog and from the changelog browser.
-
-  * A new configuration tool (replacing hg-config dialogs) that allows you
-    to configure TortoiseHg and Mercurial.
-
-  * Most dialogs now use HgThread and GtkUI to run hg commands. These
-    classes run the command in a background thread and provide GUI prompts
-    for when user interaction is necessary (http web auth, etc). For some
-    commands, it also provides a progress bar.
-
-  * A preview of the new Mercurial merge back end. The python hgmerge.py
-    script is being integrated into Mercurial, and this installer has a
-    preview of how that will work. You need to unset any ui.merge in your
-    Mercurial.ini file in order for it to work properly. If you don't
-    configure anything it will use simplemerge to automatically perform
-    merges. If conflicts are found it falls back to kdiff3 to resolve
-    them interactively.
-
-  * Slight improvement on speed of overlay icons display.
-
-  * A new 'about' dialog.
-
-Bugs fixed in 0.2
-
-  * [SF Bug #1851395] Overlay icons and context menus are no longer
-    restricted to MS-Explorer. So other file managers, such as Total
-    Commander, should be supported.
-
-  * [SF Bug #1844722] Users can now create repositories inside repository
-     via the context menu.
