now available. This release features numerous usability improvements,
performance enhancements, and bug fixes over previous releases.

Many thanks to Mercurial contributors and supporters for making the
continued rapid improvement of this software possible!

Upgrade notes:

- diff and status command are now repo-wide by default
  (use 'hg diff .' for the old behavior)
- GPG signing is now done with the gpg extension
- the --text option for commit, rawcommit, and tag has been removed
- the copy/rename --parents option has been removed

Major changes from 0.7 to 0.8:

- faster status, diff, and commit
- reduced memory usage for push and pull
- improved extension API
- new bisect, gpg, hgk, and win32text extensions
- short URLs, binary file handling, and optional gitweb skin for hgweb
- numerous new command options including log --keyword and pull --rev
- improved hooks and file filtering

Mathematics is the supreme nostalgia of our time.
