RabbitVCS v0.16.0

Posted in Release on March 2nd, 2014 by daniel.oconnor – 13 Comments

With the shift to github out of the way, we’ve decide to release a new version of rabbitvcs.

It’s available via github, and contains 16 important bug fixes and features.

Please report issues via github

We’ve uploaded Ubuntu packages to the main PPA, and other distributions are encouraged to produce their own packages as needed.

One important note, Launchpad won’t accept new packages for certain distributions because they are considered obsolete.

These distributions are:

  • Maverick (10.10)
  • Natty (11.04)
  • Oneiric (11.10)
  • Raring (13.04)

 Unless there is significant demand, we also will be ignoring these releases.

Released v0.15.0.5

Posted in Release on November 9th, 2011 by Adam Plumb – 42 Comments

hi all, thanks go to rkrug, basil2, and macavity for helping me figure
out what why we were seeing seg faults in nautilus.  The problem seems
to affect people with python-gtkspell installed.  That is a static
module that uses static gtk as a dependency, and when it tried to
import gtk it would create a seg fault.  Unfortunately, there doesn’t
seem to be dynamic bindings for gtk spell module so I’ve disabled it
for Nautilus 3 users.  This update should also fix the issue where it
would report that it couldn’t load certain svg or svgz files.

The new tarball (hopefully the last for a while) is up now on our
download section.

RabbitVCS v0.15.0.4 released, Ubuntu tarball installation info

Posted in Release, Status Update on November 9th, 2011 by Adam Plumb – 3 Comments

hi all, so I’ve made yet another packaging related release with v0.15.0.4 which fixes some minor issues.  I also found out that if you are installing from the tarball on Ubuntu, then you need to add an argument to the setup.py call, otherwise it will ignore the system prefix and use /usr/local no matter what, which will cause many problems.

Ubuntu users should use the following command to install:

$ sudo python setup.py install –install-layout=deb

All other users should do:

$ sudo python setup.py install

Thanks,Adam

Good news!  RabbitVCS v0.15 is out!

This release is mainly focused on adding Nautilus 3.0 support with the
new nautilus-3.0 client extension.  However, there are quite a few bug
fixes and changes in there as well, including migrating from Glade to
GtkBuilder for dialogs.

Release announcement for RabbitVCS v0.14.2!

Posted in Release on February 17th, 2011 by Adam Plumb – Be the first to comment

Today we are releasing RabbitVCS v0.14.2, a bug fix release that should go a long way towards improving the experience for git users.  There are some treats for svn users as well, though.

  • Bug #483. Protect from a key error if no message attribute is present in the log item.
  • Fixed the git status to show untracked files as untracked, not normal
  • Allow the git status checker to handle repositories in symbolically linked directories
  • Bug #486. Fix locale/encoding issues with the date string coming in from git.
  • Bug #502 Annotate no longer cuts off lines with closing parentheses in them (it’s a git command line response parsing issue)
  • Fix the log context menu command that compares with the previous revision
  • Bug #501, Check if the log revision items list is empty before trying to display it
  • Bug #499, Don’t show the Working Copy revision in the changes revision selectors
  • In the command line, expand specified paths to make it easier to detect working copies
  • No more relying on hard-coded paths, now we can install to any arbitrary prefix

There are definitely more bug fixes to come in v0.14.3, but I wanted to get these out the door since my time to work on them is going to be diminished for a while.

RabbitVCS bugfix release – v0.14.1.1

Posted in Release on January 8th, 2011 by Adam Plumb – 3 Comments

It looks like something strange happened with the v0.14.1 release tarball because it did not include the actual bug fixes, it was an exact copy of v0.14.  So none of the bugs I fixed were actually fixed in that release.  With that said, here is the “real” v0.14.1, but I’m calling it v0.14.1.1 so we know the difference.  I included a couple more bug fixes in this release, as well.

  • (Bug #456) Fix nautilus crasher when dialogs are acted on
  • (Bug #461) Fix a crasher in the merge dialog
  • (Bug #457) In the changes dialog, fix bug that stopped diffs from being generated
  • Also fixed an issue where opening versioned files from the changes dialog would not work sometimes.
  • (Bug #477) Fix crasher in revision properties dialog when save button is clicked

Good news!  RabbitVCS v0.14 is out!

After almost a year of development (with some breaks), v0.14 is finally here.  This release brings about a ton of new functionality and bug fixes, most notably the addition of git support, which makes this our first release that is truly multi-vcs, a quicker status checker for the nautilus file manager extension, and an improved mechanism for resolving and editing conflicts.

Stay tuned for news regarding v0.15!

Release announcement for RabbitVCS BETA 5!

Posted in Release on December 19th, 2010 by Adam Plumb – 1 Comment

Another week, another beta release.  I swear, once I stop finding bugs just about every day we will do a final release.  In the meantime please accept this beta release which fixes some regressions introduced in beta 4 as well as more general bug fixes.

FYI, Jason is going to be on vacation for the next few weeks so we may not be able to update our Ubuntu/Debian PPA with new beta packages, as Jason normally handles this task.  I’m talking to him about possibly letting me do it, but I can’t guarantee anything.

Here are the details:

  • Some dialogs, when closed, were not terminating their processes.  This should fix the rename dialog and the create dialog.
  • Fix regression introduced in beta 4 where the checkout menu item and show log menu item were not present when they should be.
  • Fix the git export dialog to be better integration with the main context menu
  • Fix regression introduced in beta 4 where the gedit plugin ran really slow when opening new files.  It should be much much quicker now.
  • Fix some issues with the git log dialog
  • Run the git log and push dialogs as threaded so large working copies don’t block the ui.
  • Fixed bug #441, Deleting from the commit window is fixed
  • Fixed bug #440, After reloading the changed files table in the commit window, honor whether show unversioned files is toggled
  • Make the height of the svn update-to-revision dialog flexible so it doesn’t cut into the widgets
  • Icons will now appear next to menu items in the Thunar extension
  • Fix the nautilus/thunar property page for git (Wasn’t working at all)
  • Refactored the rabbitvcs status object somewhat to make it more consistent when using multiple vcs’s
  • Fixed bug #443, Fix the stop-on-copy functionality for svn
