Hi everybody,

I am pleased to announce the release of darcs 2.1.2, which you can
download from


This is deliberately a very modest release, containing as few changes
from darcs 2.1.0 as we can manage.  The changes we have included are
GHC 6.10 support and a bugfix for Windows (notably, one which makes
darcs help work from the DOS prompt without the need for MSYS or
Cygwin).  See the attached ChangeLog for details.

So what's next?  We have been doing a lot of work and we're eager to
show you some of the results.  Our next release is scheduled for January
of 2009, with performance improvements from the darcs hacking sprint,
improved Windows support, a new optional Cabal-based build and a first
cut at libdarcs.
