Subjectbk-3.2.0 released
BitKeeper Users,

BK/Pro 3.2.0 has been released and is in the BK download area,

We're departing from our previous tradition of letting the word out slowly,
people didn't like that. Because of that, we suggest that cautious users
wait for a week or two to make sure that any lingering bugs have been caught.
The rest of you go bang on it and let us know if we missed anything please.

As always, please use "bk sendbug" to file any bug reports for this

The next effort from us will be a commercial release we hope to have
out in mid-summer.

Thanks and enjoy,

The BitKeeper Team

Release notes for BitKeeper version 3.2.0. These release notes cover
the following topics:

. Upgrade Notes
. New Features
. Noteworthy bug fixes

Upgrade notes

On Microsoft Windows, BitKeeper no longer requires (or uses) Cygwin.
You may use Cygwin if you like but BitKeeper does not need it; BK
is completely self contained.

Registry management, uninstall, and upgrades should work substantially
better than they have in the past.

New Features

A simple pager called 'bk more' is included and will be used if no
suitable pager can be found.

Under Windows the SCCS dirs are now created with the "hidden" attribute.

HPUX 11.11 is now a supported platform.

A new command called 'bk lease'. This is primarily for openlogging users.
Please see 'bk helptool lease' for more information.
