Aaron has announced a bzr plugin fault-line:

It works by looking at previous revisions where the file was changed,
and seeing what test files were changed at the same time. You can
specify the files, or it will autodetect them by looking at your working
tree.

I’m enormously pleased to announce that Jelmer Vernooij will be joining the bzr team at Canonical on a full-time basis from January next year, replacing Robert Collins (who recently became Launchpad’s technical architect). Jelmer has contributed to Bazaar over many years including driving the svn and git foreign branch plugins and the bzr-rewrite plugin.

Jelmer already works at Canonical on the Launchpad team, and has recently been involved with the recipe builds feature that automatically assembles deb packages from the contents of upstream branches. We will very likely look to hire someone to replace Jelmer on the Launchpad team, through the Canonical jobs page.

I got a lot of very good applications from the bzr community and beyond, and I just wish I could work full time with more of you. Thanks to everyone who did apply.

Parth announced bzr-grep 0.2.0.  Amongst other things there are performance enhancements such that Eli says:

Thanks, this looks great. I just tried it on Windows XP searching for a fixed string in the Emacs repository — took 28 seconds with a cold cache and only 7.5 with a warm cache, which is impressive.

By contrast, “grep -F -R” (with suitable –exclude patterns, to prevent it from searching binary files and inside .bzr) took about 12.5 seconds with a warm cache.
