Hi all,

Quilt 0.43 has been released ten days ago (sorry for being slow). A
number of improvements may be of interest to kernel developers so I am
announcing it here on LKML.

Quilt 0.43 can be downloaded from here:

Bug fixes:
Deleting the top patch works again,
patch delimiter ("---") is no more eaten on refresh.

Huge efforts have been put into improving compatibility with many
platforms. The git specific patch format extensions are better
supported too.

New features:
The mail command has been completely reworked,
delete -r physically removes the deleted patch,
delete --backup makes a backup copy of the deleted patch,
annotate -P annotates a previous version of the file,
import can preserve or merge comments when updating a patch,
push detects reversed patches,
diffstat options can be specified,
patch delimiter ("---") is automatically inserted before diffstat.

Changes to the interface in this version of quilt broke gquilt (a GUI wrapper for quilt) and if you use gquilt and upgrade to this version of quilt you will also need to upgrade to version 0.17 of gquilt. It is available in source form at:


and rpm form at:
