Mercurial Logo The new version 1.3 of distributed version control system Mercurial has added experimental support for subrepositories. The new feature will allow developers to take a set of repositories and treat them as a group. Other changes include a share extension to make creating working directories faster and less expensive.

Other changes include better windows performance, new translations for German, French, Greek, Brazilian Portugese and traditional Chinese and improvements for existing translations and improved zeroconf support along with numerous bug fixes and minor enhancements. Support for Python 2.3 has been dropped with Mercurial now requiring Python 2.4 to 2.6. Details of the changes are available on the What's New page of the Mercurial Wiki.

Mercurial is the revision control system used by the Python developers and is supported by SourceForge and Google Code. Mercurial is licensed under the GPL version 2.
