February development summary

Fri, 2 Mar 2012 17:14 by mpm in Uncategorized (link)

What I was up to in February:

  • released Mercurial 2.1
  • reviewed and merged 103 changesets
  • authored 27 changesets
  • wrote 160 mailing list messages
  • worked on 156 bug tracker issues
  • begin work on generic templating for all commands
  • various bug fixes
  • daily IRC office hours

The generic templating feature is an idea I’ve been kicking around for a while. The idea is be able to add templating support to commands with minimal code impact, while simultaneously adding support for generic formats like XML and JSON. You can read about the basics in this thread.

(The other big recent feature, of course, is phases, which were released in Mercurial 2.1.)
