Mercurial hits long-awaited 1.0
In my first-ever entry in this blog, on the 9th of November 2005, I wrote that Conary was moving to Mercurial for source code control. This conversion was a big success.
Today, I’m happy to spread the news that Mercurial 1.0 has finally been released. We continue to be very pleased by our choice of source code control systems. Continued development has made it even easier to use as well as more powerful, and new documentation has made it easy to introduce to others, including non-developers. In particularly, I would like to highlight:
- Distributed revision control with Mercurial, the "unofficial manual"
- Mercurial Usage "cheat sheet" that has enabled non-developers (documentation, marketing, product management, etc.) to use mercurial effectively.
The mercurial community continues to be friendly to “refugees” from other source code control tools, and its use is becoming widespread. Thanks again to everyone who has been involved in Mercurial development! I can’t wait to see what Mercurial looks like in another three years!
