"...I’ve also recorded a short chat with Martin Albisetti who is leading the new Bazaar IDE integration team. Martin talks about the technical and advocacy approaches they plan to take. Listen to the interview with Martin." -- (Bzr is now a GNU package and should be used by Emacs team => https://launchpad.net/vc-bzr )
"The Bazaar version control system recently became a GNU project. We set out several years ago to build a version control system that would suit the collaboration and cooperation at the heart of free software, and Bazaar is the result of that effort.
"The Bazaar version control system development team is happy to announce availability of bzr 2.0.0 [...] Bazaar is free software (GNU GPL 2+), a part of the GNU project, and supported by Canonical Ltd."
Well, no, not a food olive bazaar (though that would be tasty), but rather Olive, a GTK GUI for Bazaar, a version control system similar to GIT and Subversion. We’re not going to go into the differences between the systems, but rather focus on this interesting application, now merged into the Bazaar GTK project.
"I'm happy to announce that Bazaar is now officially a GNU project. This decision was taken after consultation with some of the core Bazaar developers, Canonical management, and Richard Stallman, leader of the GNU project..."
"I'm happy to announce the release of version 1.3 of the Bazaar version control system. - http://bazaar-vcs.org/Download - Since 1.2, we've improved the speed of several important operations, including log, annotate, and other operations on revision history. Several bugs have been fixed and new options and features have been added, including an option to hardlink files between working trees.
Bazaar is distributed revision control system allowing multiple people to have their own branch of a project, and merge code efficiently between them. It enables new contributors to immediately access to the full tools that previously have been limited to just the committers to a project. This release marks the start of another long-term-stable series.
Bazaar Explorer, a wonderful cross-platform Qt-based GUI front-end to the Bazaar VCS, is making it even easier. Whether you’re just getting started with DVCS or you just prefer a graphical environment, you should really check it out.
