Release announcement for RabbitVCS v0.14 BETA 3!

Nobody is allowed to sit on their laurels because four days after beta 2 we have beta 3!  Now with extra git goodness and more betaness than ever!

In this release, I put a lot of focus into improving status checker performance.  I also wanted to get the non-nautilus extensions up to date.  Here is a rough list of what changed:

  • The git status checker performance is now much much faster.  Not quite instantaneous, but pretty good.
  • Added a simple cache to the subversion status checker, similar to the one in the git status checker, and it should improve performance there as well.
  • Added git menu items to the gedit extension, so you can access git from gedit now.
  • Fixed a bug in the Thunar extension which was causing it not to load.
  • Tweaked the nautilus/thunar context menu arrangement slightly
  • Added the Merge menu item to the git context menu (not sure why I didn’t before)
  • Fixed a bug in the git commit window where “removed” files were not showing up
  • Imported translations from launchpad
  • Improved the conflict decision dialog look a bit

All in all this is shaping up to be a pretty solid release.  I’m hoping that the next release will be v0.14 final, but we’ll have to see how things play out.
