Log Message:
Update to 0.23:

        Possibly incompatible changes:
        - hook_note_commit and hook_note_netsync_revision_received
          take a new argument containing the text of the revision that
          was received.  (Timothy Brownawell <>)
        - 'cat FILENAME' now acts like the old 'cat file REV
          FILENAME'; use new commands 'automate get_revision',
          'automate get_manifest', 'automate get_file' to fetch
          objects by hash.  (Grahame Bowland <>)

        General improvements:
        - .mt-ignore support (Martin Dvorak
          <>, Timothy Brownawell <>)
        - much work on making monotone more i18n friendly (Benoît
          Dejean <>, Matt Johnston
        - support for more interactive merge tools:
          - (comes with OS X) (Marcel van der Boom
          - TortoiseMerge (Win32; comes with TortoiseSVN) (Matthew
            Gregan <>)
        - rename and drop now actually perform the specified rename or
          deletion when the argument --execute is passed.  (Richard
          Levitte <>)
        - 'help' command, same as --help (Matt Johnston
        - 'usher' support: experimental method for proxying multiple
          netsync servers through a single port (similar concept to
          vhosts) (Timothy Brownawell <>)
        - support long passphrases (Matt Johnston <>)
        - Faster binary file detection (Eric Anderson
        - netsync speedups:
          - when handling large files (Eric Anderson
          - when handling many branches (Marcel van der Boom
        - new system to allow crash logs to contain not just execution
          traces, but also dumps of data being handled when the error
          was detected -- greatly improves debuggability of user
        - complete rework of path handling code, for clarity,
          robustness, and speed.  No user visible changes, except for
          the many bugs fixed.  (Special thanks to Matthew Gregan
          <> and Grahame Bowland
          - however, if you have non-normalized paths in your history
            (symptom: fresh pulls with 0.18 work, but fresh pulls with
            0.19 do not), then 0.23 will report an error and refuse to
            handle the affected revisions.  Since it is believed this
            only affects one project, and to conserve core developer
            time, implementing a migration was put off for now.  If
            this causes problems or for more details, please send an
            email to
        - as always, many small bug fixes, speedups, and improved

        New translations:
        - fr (Benoît Dejean <>)
        - ja (Satoru SATOH <>)

        Other new monotone-related projects since 0.22:
        - mtsh by Timothy Brownawell:
          GTK+ wrapper for monotone focusing on working copy
          operations -- add/drop/revert/rename/commit/update/diff and
          browsing.  Has a mechanism for per-file commit comments.

        - "dumb server" support by Nathaniel Smith (share your
          monotone repositories via HTTP/FTP, no netsync daemon
          Still needs a command-line frontend to be usable, among
          other things.  Help wanted.  In python.

        - m7 by Larry Hastings <>
          Experimental drop-in command-line wrapper for monotone.
          Uses certs to add local incrementing version numbers, and an
          enhanced annotate front-end.
