Hi all,

The darcs team would like to announce the immediate availability of darcs 2.5
beta 1. Important changes since darcs 2.4.4 are:

   * trackdown can now do binary search with the --bisect option
   * darcs always stores patch metadata encoded with UTF-8
   * obliterate has a -o flag to save obliterated patch
   * amend-record now supports --ask-deps
   * apply now supports --match
   * amend-record has a new --keep-date option
   * inventory-changing commands (like record and pull) now operate in
     constant time with respect to the number of patches in the repository

If you have installed the Haskell Platform or cabal-install, you can install
this beta release by doing:

  $ cabal update
  $ cabal install darcs-beta

Alternatively, you can download the tarball from 
http://darcs.net/releases/darcs- and build it by hand as 
explained in the README file. 

Kind Regards,
the darcs release manager,
Reinier Lamers
