I've just uploaded a new darcsweb rc. I named it 1.0-rc1 because it's
been stable so far, and I'm not aware of any bugs.

I plan to do the release in about two weeks, if nothing goes wrong, as
it is today. So if you test it, please let me know how it went.

You can get it with

  $ darcs get http://auriga.wearlab.de/~alb/repos/darcsweb/

Since the darcsweb darcsweb is not available due to hosting problems (I
can't run CGIs at darcsweb's site, and the site who was running darcsweb
darcsweb has connectivity issues), here is a summary of the patches
included since 0.16:

 * Change my email address (me)
 * string.join is deprecated (Kirill Smelkov)
 * Add support for regexp-based replacing (based on Kirill Smelkov's
 * The DARCS_DONT_ESCAPE_8BIT environment variable is now set using
   os.environ before running da rcs and restored to its original state
   after running darcs - makes darcsweb work on Windows (Jonathan
 * Check python version before running darcsweb (me)
 * typo in sample config autoprojurl description (Alexandre Rossi)
 * closing <a> tag in project url link (Alexandre Rossi)
 * new optional config varuable: author_links (VMiklos)
 * new optional config varuable: disable_annotate (VMiklos)
 * make color commitdiff more readable when parts of a file are skipped
   (Alexandre Rossi)
 * only read the first line of _darcs/third_party/darcsweb/* files
   (Alexandre Rossi)
 * Soften some colors in commitdiff. (me)
 * display the size of the files in tree view (VMiklos)
 * Fixed a path problem when running on Windows (Jonathan Buchanan)
 * Fixed bad links in RSS feed when darcsweb URL is automatically
   detected (Jonathan Buchanan)
 * Adjust URI scheme according to CGI environment variable HTTPS
   (Jonathan Buchanan)
 * Add /etc/darcsweb after '.' in sys.path (me)

I think you should also know that I've been using git as my primary SCM
for some time, so while I'll continue to support darcsweb, I won't be
personally adding more features to it, and I'll just fix bugs and
review/apply patches written by other people.

If you are aware of any bugs, please let me know. If you have patches
for darcsweb (either for 1.0 or post 1.0), please (re)send* them (using
diff -u is highly appreciated).

Thanks a lot,

*: if you sent me a patch that I have not applied, please resend it. I
think I had two patches in this status, but I couldn't find them in my
mailboxes, so I'm going to assume I'm just confused about this until
(hopefully) proven wrong ;)
