+New features and improvement in 0.6:
+  * Updated to Mercurial 1.1.X (1.1.2, as of release). 
+    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 menus, with non-applicable
+      menus 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 'Tab Width' config option in 'TortoiseHG' page to expand tab
+      characters in source lines displayed, with maximum of 16 spaces

+      [defaults] section of mercurial.ini)

+  * Status window (changes apply also to the internal commit window):
+    - Support Mercurial's new 'resolve' command: with new 'ms' (merge state)
+      column in file-list area, plus new context menus to resolve merge
+      conflict and mark/unmark merge state.
+    - Replace Select & Deselect tool buttons with checkbox on the file-list
+      header.
+    - Add preliminary support for moving, renaming and copying of clean
+      (managed) files.
