Release Notes

Features and bugfixes in our latest releases. Please see the Download page for links to source and binaries.

Note that Mercurial follows a time-based release plan with major releases every three months and minor (bugfix) releases on the first of every month (see TimeBasedReleasePlan).

{i} Be sure to read the upgrade notes when upgrading.

(See the archive for older versions)

1. Mercurial 5.2 (2019-11-05)

Feature release. Full notes coming soon.

1.1. Backwards Compatibility Changes

* The infinitepush extension is believed to be unused, and will be deleted at

* 'hg grep' now searches working copy file contents by default. We recognize

  • this is a significant change from past behavior, but surveys of large bodies of users indicated nobody used (and almost nobody understood) the previous no-flags behavior of 'hg grep'. The new behavior aligns with the behavior most users expected (including hg's maintainers), which also happens to be the behavior of 'git grep'. Given that the old behavior was confusing to the point of being unusable, we were comfortable changing this behavior.

1.2. API Changes

* 'mercurial.hg.update*' and 'mercurial.merge.update' now expect a value from

  • a set of NAMED_CONSTANTS ('merge.UPDATECHECK_*' constants) rather than a collection of magic strings. As of now, the values are the same, but code should be prepared for these values to change in the future.

* 'mercurial.hg.updatetotally' is now more thorough about checking its

  • 'updatecheck' keyword argument. Previously invalid values would have used

    the configured default updatecheck method, but now will raise ValueError.

* 'mercurial.bookmarks.bmstore' no longer has a convenience method for looking

  • up changectx instances from a bookmark name. Use 'repo[repo.bookmarks[name]]' intead of 'repo.bookmarks.changectx(name)'.
