Welcome to Mercurial for Windows!

For configuration and usage directions, please read the ReadMe.html
file that comes with this package.

Release Notes

2005-09-21  v0.7 with modifications

* New INI files have been added to control Mercurial's behaviour:

    System-wide -  C:\Mercurial\Mercurial.ini
    Per-user    -  C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Mercurial.ini

  A default version of the system-wide INI file is installed with
  Mercurial.  No per-user INI file is installed, but it will be
  honoured if you create one.

* Windows line endings are now handled automatically and correctly by
  the update and commit commands.  See the INI file for how to
  customise this behaviour.

* NOTE: Much of the rest of the Mercurial code does not handle Windows
  line endings properly.  Accordingly, the output of the diff command,
  for example, will appear huge until I fix this.

* Packaged text files now have correct Windows line endings.

2005-09-21  v0.7 with modifications

* This is the first standalone release of Mercurial for Windows.

* I believe it to be mostly functional, with one exception: there is
  no support yet for DOS <-> Unix line ending conversion.
