DownloadingOne way of installing Darcs 2.12.0 is with stack:
$ stack install darcs-2.12.0
Or first install the Haskell Platform (http://www.haskell.org/platform)
and install Darcs with cabal-install:
$ cabal update
$ cabal install darcs-2.12.0
You can also download the tarball from
http://darcs.net/releases/darcs-2.12.0.tar.gz and build it by hand.
The 2.12 branch is also available as a darcs repository from
Patch dependency graph exportThe new command `darcs show dependencies`, enables to export the dependency graph of a repository (up to the latest tag, by default) as a Graphviz file:
whatsnew output and third-party VC frontend supportThe flag `whatsnew --machine-readable` is a simplified version of `whatsnew -s` for easier parsability by third-party tools. Darcs 2.12 adds conflict markers to the output of whatnew when summarized (ie, when used with the `-s` or `--machine-readable` flags or via the `darcs status` alias). Thanks to this, Darcs support was reintroduced in meld 3.15.2 .
improvements for Git repository importsFile moves are converted to file moves primitives, instead of being file deletes and add as before. This enables to have smaller Darcs respositories with a more understandable history. This change adds to other improvements and fixes that make Git import more practical.
repository Weak HashesThe command `darcs show repo` now shows a hash that is the XOR
of all hashes of the patches metadata of the repository. Being a XOR,
it does not depend on the patches' ordering. Also it is quite fast to
calculate. This Weak Hash can be useful to quickly check whether two
repositories of a single proyect have the same patches.
