What's new since 0.3.2?

  • Various bug fixes.
  • Updated git to 2.11.0 for cinnabar-helper.
  • Now supports bundle2 for both fetch/clone and push (https://www.mercurial-scm.org/wiki/BundleFormat2).
  • Now Supports git credential for HTTP authentication.
  • Now supports git push --dry-run.
  • Added a new git cinnabar fetch command to fetch a specific revision that is not necessarily a head.
  • Added a new git cinnabar download command to download a helper on platforms where one is available.
  • Removed upgrade path from repositories used with version < 0.3.0.
  • Experimental (and partial) support for using git-cinnabar without having mercurial installed.
  • Use a mercurial subprocess to access local mercurial repositories.
  • Cinnabar-helper now handles fast-import, with workarounds for performance issues on macOS.

  • Fixed some correctness issues in file parenting when pushing changesets pulled from one mercurial repository to another.
  • Various improvements to the rules to build the helper.
  • Experimental (and slow) support for pushing merges, with caveats. See issue #20 for details about the current status.
