Aaron has announced a bzr plugin fault-line:

It works by looking at previous revisions where the file was changed,
and seeing what test files were changed at the same time. You can
specify the files, or it will autodetect them by looking at your working
tree.

For example:

$ bzr faultline
lib/lp/soyuz/test/test_archive.py
lib/lp/soyuz/scripts/tests/test_copypackage.py
lib/lp/soyuz/browser/tests/test_archive_webservice.py
lib/lp/code/windmill/tests/test_recipe_request_build.py

We’re going to release bzr 2.2b4 this week, which will be the final beta for the bzr 2.2 series and the start of the 2.2 release branch.  From this point on the 2.2 will be an API freeze, so that any plugins that are updated to work with 2.2b4 will also work with 2.2.0 and future bugfix updates.  We plan to do 2.2.0 at the end of July.

2.2 brings a bunch of performance, correctness and usability improvements.

Parth announced bzr-grep 0.2.0.  Amongst other things there are performance enhancements such that Eli says:

Thanks, this looks great. I just tried it on Windows XP searching for a fixed string in the Emacs repository — took 28 seconds with a cold cache and only 7.5 with a warm cache, which is impressive.

By contrast, “grep -F -R” (with suitable –exclude patterns, to prevent it from searching binary files and inside .bzr) took about 12.5 seconds with a warm cache.
