The Xtla development team is proud to announce the release of Xtla,
version 1.1 (following two release candidates).
Xtla is the Emacs front-end to GNU Arch client (either tla or bazaar
branch, at your option). It mainly provides user-friendly wrappers for
tla and baz native commands.
The main features are:
* PCL-CVS like interface for tla inventory and tla changes
* Archive browser - navigate painlessly through archives, categories,
branches, versions, etc.
* Good integration in Emacs - almost everything can be done from
within the editor
* Bookmark manager - keep the most frequently used arch locations in
your bookmark buffer
* Integration with ediff, Emacs's graphical diff tool
- to view changes made in a local tree.
- to view and resolve conflicts after a merge.
* Interface to view missing patches from all your partners with a
* An Emacs mode for arch-related files (log files, =tagging-method,
The main new features for the 1.1 release are:
* Support for baz, and for baz added commands like "switch",
"annotate", "status", "resolved".
* Many performances improvements, like
- Mode displaying revision lists are faster. Even faster if you
use bazaar 1.5
- Searching subtrees asynchronously in tla-changes
- Computation of the merged-by field no longer O(n^2).
- Process sentinel now use tla--capturing-lambda that allows a
byte-compilation as opposed to `(lambda ...). This also
eliminated the runtime dependency on 'cl.
- marking/unmarking in inventory buffer are much faster
* The list of files to be committed displayed in the log buffer (but
removed before committing).
* tla-update is now recursive.
* Improved installation and configuration procedure. Default values
for some variables can be provided as options to the ./configure
* A mode for input file of GNU arch's build-config
* Many minor bugfixes and usability improvements. See
* Better Gnus support.
* Support for sealing an fixing archives
