Thanks to INADA Naoki (and friends?), Bazaar documentation is now available in Japanese.Read more
A number of new features have been added to QBzr, related to the management of your working tree. These feature are available from both qbrowse, and qcommit, and are available in the qbzr 0.16 release.
As you can see in the screen shot, we now show conflicts in the status column. Behind the scenes, “Merge conflict” uses extmerge, so that need installed and configured to work. “Mark conflict resolved” does a bzr resolve on the selected file.
“Remove” will unversion, and remove the file. It will prompt you if there are uncommitted changed that will be removed.
There are 3 new features that allow you to move or rename a file:
Neil Martinsen-Burrell just announced MCREPOGEN, a tool to generate random version control histories for Bazaar or anything that can read the fastimport format.
It uses a Markov Chain model where the states are directory trees and various changes to the tree have associated probabilities. The intent is that by giving complete control over the characteristics of the history, performance testing of different aspects of VCS can be improved.
As part of my drive to make it easier for users to switch to Bazaar, I’ve been working with some of our community members on a Bazaar Survival Guide, a manual explaining Bazaar to refugees of other tools in terms they already know. We now have sections for CVS, Subversion, Mercurial, Darcs, Monotone and ClearCase users. Hopefully, we’ll have sections soon for other popular tools.
A huge thanks to everyone who has helped with this! I think it is coming along nicely.
Are you a Bazaar fan and need some help explaining to others why Bazaar is cool? I published a document last week called Why switch to Bazaar? that may help. I’ve tried hard to present the big picture together with some concrete examples, explaining what we stand for and what that means to users, teams and communities in reality. Furthermore, if you tried Bazaar 1.x but found it too slow or inefficient, I’m sure you’ll find the Bazaar 2.0 benchmarks included in the document great news.
I hope you find the document interesting and food for thought. If there are any mistakes or you’ll like to translate the document to another language, please let me know.
