The darcs team is pleased to announce the release of darcs 2.5.2, a
minor upgrade for the 2.5 release.
This release bumps the parsec dependency that was missed in 2.5.1,
ensuring full compatibility with the recent 2011.2.0.0 release. It also
fixes a nasty regression from 2.4 where darcs allowed you to add files
inside boring directories to the repository.
The easiest way to install darcs 2.5.2 from source is by first
installing the Haskell Platform (http://www.haskell.org/platform). If
you have installed the Haskell Platform or cabal-install, you can
install this release by doing:
$ cabal update
$ cabal install darcs-2.5.2
Alternatively, you can download the tarball from
http://darcs.net/releases/darcs-2.5.2.tar.gz and build it by hand as
explained in the README file.
Versions of GHC from 6.10.x to 7.0.x are supported.
The 2.5 branch is also available as a darcs repository from

* Refuse to add files that are inside boring directories
This was a regression from the 2.4 series and led to broken patches
because the parent directory was not added.
