Log Message:
Update to 0.9:

 Major changes between Mercurial 0.8.1 and 0.9:

  - The repository file format has been improved.
    - This has resulted in an average 40% reduction in disk space    usage.
    - The new format (called RevlogNG) is now the default.
    - Mercurial works perfectly with both the old and new repository
      file formats. It can transfer changes transparently between
      repositories of either format.
    - To use the new repository format, simply use `hg clone --pull` to
      clone an existing repository.
    - Note: Versions 0.8.1 and earlier of Mercurial cannot read
      RevlogNG repositories directly, but they can `clone`, `pull`
      from, and `push` to servers that are serving RevlogNG
  - Memory usage has been improved by over 50% for many common operations.
  - Substantial performance improvements on large repositories.
  - New commands:
    - 'archive' - generate a directory tree snapshot, tarball, or zip
      file of a revision
  - Deprecated commands:
    - 'addremove' - replaced by 'add' and 'remove --after'
    - 'forget' - replaced by 'revert'
    - 'undo' - replaced by 'rollback'
  - New extensions:
    - Bugzilla integration hook
    - Email notification hook
  - Nested repositories are now supported. Mercurial will not recurse
    into a subdirectory that contains a '.hg' directory. It is treated
    as a separate repository.
  - The standalone web server, 'hg serve', is now threaded, so it can
    talk to multiple clients at a time.
  - The web server can now display a "message of the day".
  - Support added for hooks written in Python.
  - Many improvements and clarifications to built-in help.
