On behalf of QBzr development team I'm happy to announce new release of
QBzr 0.23.0 codenamed "Birch".

This release intended to be used as companion release for bzr 2.6, and
might support bzr 2.5.

I'd like to thank all people who have helped make this release awesome.
Thank you.

What's new in this release
QBzr 0.23 is companion release for bzr 2.6, and compatible with bzr 2.5.

Behavior change: External diff behavior is changed as below.(IWATA Hidetaka)
1. When calling external diff for multiple files, all diffs shown at
once.(Bug #942218)
2. Working tree or branch is locked only when starting up of diff
tools.(Bug #942221)
This affects to all commands which use external diff.
(qdiff, qcommit, qbrowse, qannotate, ...)

Now, you can launch 'Shelve' directly from each dialog when uncommitted
change blocks action.
And you can launch 'Resolve' directly when conflicts generated. (IWATA
Hidetaka #935903)

New feature of qannotate command: command-line option `--line=N` (`-L`)
allows you to jump right to specific line.
That could be used for tighter integration with editors and IDEs.

Annotation window now uses e-mail of revision author to define background
color of revision. Previously we've used author name to define background
color, so changes in different revisions made by user with the same e-mail
but with differently spelled name was highlighted with different colors.

Simple actions to resolve conflicts: 'take "THIS"' and 'take "OTHER"'.
Available from context menu.

Show simple message box instead of exception report dialog when failing
to lock. (#935902)

Improvements of qlog's context menus: better context menu of deleted files,
and for files from virtual "Working Tree" revision (available when
qlog run with --show-tree option). Also properly refresh the state of
in virtual "Working Tree" revision.

For full list of improvements and bugfixes please see changelog below.
