Version Highlights

  • 1.6.0 comes with a full rewrite of the multi-project support, which results in incomparable performance and usability optimization for the enterprise world. Operations on huge repos, that took 10 minutes in earlier versions, now take just 10 seconds!
  • Full support for multiple Eclipse projects under one Mercurial root.
  • Better repository management: improved Clone Wizard, Repositories View and project repository settings.
  • Added first draft of the full-text history search. Now you can grep for any string in the entire repository history.
  • History View usability improvements:
    • New bisect feature.
    • File status decorations: added/removed/changed.
    • Highlighting for merge commits.
    • Tag info for single file history.
    • History navigation up to the root.
    • New context menus to compare/open/replace with parent/other file versions.
  • For Windows users: Mercurial was updated to the 1.4.3 version. Also, Mercurial documentation and man pages were integrated into the Eclipse help. You can now work now completely offline, and never have to leave Eclipse.
  • And, as usual, various performance-, usability improvements, and bug fixes in all areas.


Happy coding!
