Software-update: TortoiseHg 1.0

TortoiseHg wordt primair ontwikkeld voor het Windows-platform en bestaat uit een verzameling van applicaties om met Mercurial te kunnen werken. Mercurial wordt door onder andere softwareontwikkelaars gebruikt om de broncode te beheren. Voor meer informatie verwijzen we jullie door naar deze pagina en op deze pagina kan je een aantal screenshots bekijken van de gebruikersinterface. De ontwikkelaars hebben versie 1.0 uitgebracht voor zowel het Windows-platform als een extentie voor Gnome/Nautilus. De aankondiging van TortoiseHg 1.0 ziet er als volgt uit:

Packaged Versions

The following products are included in our TortoiseHg Windows installers.
  • Mercurial 1.5
  • Python 2.6.4 [1]
  • GTK 2.18.7
  • PyGtk 2.16.0
  • python-svn 1.6.6 (for use by hgsubversion and hg convert)
  • dulwich (for use by hg-git and others)
  • Perfarce extension
  • hgeol extension
  • mercurial keychain extension
  • TortoiseSVN's doc diff scripts
  • See extension-versions.txt in the install directory for the complete list of bundled extensions and modules and their versions
[1] If you used any hooks or extensions with previous versions of TortoiseHg, and those hooks or extensions added local Python site-packages to sys.path, you will have to upgrade your Python to 2.6 to stay current with TortoiseHg 1.0. Failure to do so will cause hgtk to not function correctly. You will see errors on the console about failing to import gdialog.

Behavior Changes

Entirely new installer

The new MSI installers can perform installs and upgrades/downgrades (of previous MSI installs) without reboot and perform silent installs. The MSI installer packages are now digitally signed.

There are two important details to be aware of:
  • You must uninstall pre-1.0 (InnoSetup based) installers before installing 1.0. Before uninstalling the old version, backup your user Mercurial.ini file. The old installers have a tendency to delete your user Mercurial.ini file when they are uninstalled.
  • There are now separate x86 and x64 installer packages. Download the appropriate package for your platform.
After the first install of an msi installer (not an upgrade or downgrade from a previously installed msi installer), a logout/login of all users is required to have the overlay icon handler initialized. The context menu works without logout/login. Later upgrade (or downgrade) installs won't need a logout/login on Vista and Windows 7, as all affected programs are shut down by the installer and explorer is restarted automatically by the installer.

On Windows XP, a logout/login of all users after every msi upgrade or downgrade install is required. If in doubt, doing a reboot will make sure all users will get the updated files loaded.

If you don't install any shell extension at all (overlay icons and shell context menu), then no logout/login is needed at all.

If you don't install the 32 bit ("x86") shell extension on 64 bit versions of Windows, there will be no need to shutdown any 32 bit programs on later upgrades/downgrades (which may be handy, because, typically, lots of programs -- e.g. email clients, browsers -- are still 32 bit only). On 64 bit Windows Vista and Windows 7, explorer is a 64 bit process, so there is no need to install the 32 bit shell extension on these systems in order to have the overlay icons and context menu working in explorer.

There are more installer details near the end of the release notes.

Branch Head Detection

In Mercurial 1.5, the 'hg heads' command was changed to make it more branch centric. In particular, a revision with children on other branches but no child on its own branch is still considered a branch head. For example, if you merge the head of branch A into branch B, branch A's head is still considered a repository head even though it has a child in branch B.

TortoiseHg tries to follow along with this semantic change, primarily in the commit tool. We no longer warn of creating new heads when committing on a branch head that has children in other branches. And similarly merging heads of two branches no longer indicates the reducing of the number of heads.

Shell extension configuration removed from taskbar app

The shell extension configuration tool is now launched from its own shell context menu option named "Explorer extension settings". The dialog no longer has a logging feature, so debugging overlay refresh issues must be done by manually starting the thgtaskbar.exe application from a command line window.

CopyHash configurable removed

The tortoisehg.copyhash configurable, marked deprecated in 0.9, was removed in this release. Use the 'Copy Hash' context menu option in the Repository Explorer instead.

Skip Diff Window removed

The tortoisehg.nodiffwin configurable has been made obsolete by an overhaul of the visual diff system. The system automatically detects when the visual diff window is required.


Visual Diff Overhaul

The visual diff infrastructure was largely overhauled in this release to detect diff tools on your computer and use them optimally. Among other improvements, it now supports visual diffs of renames and copies, as well as many common binary formats. For details, see

Import Dialog

TortoiseHg can now import (or qimport) patches from a dialog which supports file and folder drag-n-drop. See for details

Perforce Integration via perfarce extension

TortoiseHg can now operate as a front end to a Perforce client via the use of the perfarce extension. See for details

HTTP(s)/SMTP keychain integration

The mercurial-keyring extension is now bundled. It caches passwords for HTTP(S) and SMTP requests. It must be enabled and configured to activate the cache behavior. See for details.

Changeset Message Links

Installer Changes
  1. TortoiseOverlays are now included as "merge modules" so they no longer appear in Add/Remove Programs as separate applications. It should be safe to uninstall old versions of TortoiseOverlays you find on your computer at the same time you uninstall your older TortoiseHg installs, so long as you do not have other Tortoise utilities that use them (TortoiseCVS or TortoiseBzr, for instance). Future upgrades and uninstalls should handle TortoiseOverlays seamlessly.
  2. Similarly, we include the MSVC CRT redistributables using MS's approved merge modules.
  3. Because of these first two changes, the MSI installers require elevated install privileges. We do not intend to make any ZIP style installers for download, though users are free to make them for their own use. Refs #677
  4. The new MSI packages will refuse to upgrade an old InnoSetup install. The old install must be removed and rebooted before installing the MSI package. The good news is this should be the last reboot required by THG. MSI packages will upgrade or downgrade other MSI packages without reboot.
  5. If the old InnoSetup installer created your user Mercurial.ini file (if it asked for your username and email address) the old installer will try to delete that file when you uninstall it. We *highly* recommend you backup your user Mercurial.ini file before uninstalling your existing TortoiseHg package. The new MSI installers do not have this problem.
  6. MSI's use the Windows Installer framework, so you get safer upgrades, repair facilities, and safe rollbacks after errors.
  7. There are now separate packages for x86 and x64 targets. They will refuse to install on inappropriate architectures so just be aware of the split.
  8. The x64 package correctly installs the x86 portions under ${ProgramFiles(x86)} and the x64 portion under ${CommonProgramFiles}. This is a change from the pre-1.0 installers.
  9. Special thanks to Stefan Küng for fixing an issue in TortoiseOverlays for us just prior to release.

Cool! Handig programma, dat mij als Subversion gebruiker al heeft geholpen bij het wennen aan Mercurial.

Goede features, en een 1.0 release waardig.
Wat zijn de voordelen van mercurial tegenover svn of git ik zie de laatste tijd dat het steeds meer gebruikt wordt.
Het is moeilijk om hier objectieve vergelijkingen over te vinden. :-)

Subversion en CVS zijn gecentraliseerde Version Control Systemen, dus iedereen praat tegen dezelfde centrale server. Die server is leidend. Makkelijk voor backup, toegangscontrole, en nog wat zaken. Hun zwakke punten zijn met name dat branchen en mergen moeilijk en foutgevoelig is, en dat ze voor de meeste dagelijkse handelingen contact met die centrale server nodig hebben.

Git, Bazaar en Mercurial zijn drie gedistribueerde VCSen (DVCS); een moderner model waarbij elke working copy eigenlijk zelf een volledige 'centrale server' is. Het is een soort peer-to-peer systeem waarbij elke peer volledig zelfstandig kan werken, maar changes kan uitwisselen met elke andere peer. Omdat het uitwisselen van changesets inherent is aan dit systeem zijn DVCSen ook goed in lokaal branchen en mergen. Daarnaast zijn ze snel omdat ze alles lokaal doen.

Subjectief: Git is de snelste van deze drie, maar Mercurial en Bazaar zijn gebruiksvriendelijker (vooral voor overstappers van Subversion). Om die reden ben ik Mercurial gaan gebruiken.

Het is nogal een uitgebreid onderwerp, dat in onderstaand artikel beter wordt samengevat dan ik het kan:
