bzr 2.0.1

Codename:Stability First

The first of our new ongoing bugfix-only stable releases has arrived. It includes a collection of 12 bugfixes applied to bzr 2.0.0, but does not include any of the feature development in the 2.1.0 series.

Bug Fixes

  • bzr add in a tree that has files with \r or \n in the filename will issue a warning and skip over those files. (Robert Collins, #3918)
  • bzr will attempt to authenticate with SSH servers that support keyboard-interactive auth but not password auth when using Paramiko. (Andrew Bennetts, #433846)
  • Fixed fetches from a stacked branch on a smart server that were failing with some combinations of remote and local formats. This was causing “unknown object type identifier 60” errors. (Andrew Bennetts, #427736)
  • Fixed ObjectNotLocked errors when doing some log and diff operations on branches via a smart server. (Andrew Bennetts, #389413)
  • Handle things like bzr add foo and bzr rm foo when the tree is at the root of a drive. osutils._cicp_canonical_relpath always assumed that abspath() returned a path that did not have a trailing /, but that is not true when working at the root of the filesystem. (John Arbash Meinel, Jason Spashett, #322807)
  • Hide deprecation warnings for ‘final’ releases for python2.6. (John Arbash Meinel, #440062)
  • Improve the time for bzr log DIR for 2a format repositories. We had been using the same code path as for <2a formats, which required iterating over all objects in all revisions. (John Arbash Meinel, #374730)
  • Make sure that we unlock the tree if we fail to create a TreeTransform object when doing a merge, and there is limbo, or pending-deletions directory. (Gary van der Merwe, #427773)
  • Occasional IndexError on renamed files have been fixed. Operations that set a full inventory in the working tree will now go via the apply_inventory_delta code path which is simpler and easier to understand than dirstates set_state_from_inventory method. This may have a small performance impact on operations built on _write_inventory, but such operations are already doing full tree scans, so no radical performance change should be observed. (Robert Collins, #403322)
  • Retrieving file text or mtime from a _PreviewTree has good performance when there are many changes. (Aaron Bentley)
  • The CHK index pages now use an unlimited cache size. With a limited cache and a large project, the random access of chk pages could cause us to download the entire cix file many times. (John Arbash Meinel, #402623)
  • When a file kind becomes unversionable after being added, a sensible error will be shown instead of a traceback. (Robert Collins, #438569)


  • Improved README. (Ian Clatworthy)
  • Improved upgrade documentation for Launchpad branches. (Barry Warsaw)
