Version Control for Human Beings.

Bazaar Explorer is a desktop application providing an easy-to-use interface to the Bazaar version control system. It is designed to be simple enough for casual users of version control, yet powerful enough for experts to use as their primary interface to Bazaar.

Please visit the home page, http://doc.bazaar.canonical.com/explorer/en/, for more information.

Description

If a location is given, that location is opened. Otherwise, Bazaar Explorer is started with a “Welcome” page.

See http://doc.bazaar.canonical.com/explorer/en/ for our vision, an overview of features, a visual tour and additional documentation.

Troubleshooting

A diagnostic mode is supported where commands are displayed in a dialog instead of being executed. This can be enabled from the command line by using the –dry-run option and toggled from within the application using View –> Diagnostic Mode.

If started with -Derror, exceptions are displayed on the console instead of being trapped and converted to an error dialog. This can be useful when providing additional information for bug reports.
