<h2>Changes For Version 1.23 (2012-08-08)</h2>
  *  The default checkout database name is now ".fslckout" instead of
     "_FOSSIL_" on unix.  Both names continue to work.
  *  Added the "fossil all changes" command
  *  Added the "fossil all list --ckout" command
  *  Added the "public-pages" glob pattern that allows anonymous users to
     embedded documentation on sites where source code should not be
     accessible to anonymous users.
  *  Allow multiple --tag options on the same "fossil commit" command.
  *  Change the meaning of the --bgcolor option for "fossil commit" to only
     change the color for that one commit.  The new --branchcolor option 
     is available to set a persistent background color.
  *  Add the branch= query parameter to the vdiff page and the --branch option
     to the "fossil diff" command.
  *  Check-in names of the form "root:BRANCH" now refer to the origin of
     the branch.




  *  Add the ability to set a background image as part of server configuration.
  *  Allow partial commits of cherrypick merges.
  *  Updates against an uncommitted merge are now a warning, not a fatal error.
  *  Prompt the user to continue if a check-in comment is unedited.
  *  Fixes to case sensitivity settings with the /dir webpage.
  *  Repositories now try to remember the locations of all checkouts and
     web-access URLs and display this information with the 
     "fossil info $REPO" command.
  *  Improved defense against spiders:  The src= attribute of
     &lt;a&gt; elements is set using javascript after the page loads.
  *  Enhanced formatting of the user list page.
  *  If a file named in "fossil add" is missing, that is now a warning not
     a fatal error.
  *  Fix side-by-side diff so that it displays correctly with 
     multi-byte UTF8 characters.
  *  Performance improvements in the diff logic.
  *  Lots of other performance tweaks and documentation updates.

<h2>Changes For Version 1.22 (2012-03-17)</h2>
  *  Greatly improved "diff" processing including the new --brief option,
     partial line matching, colorized in-line diffs, and better performance.
  *  Promote "allow-symlinks" to a versionable setting
  *  Harden the CGI processing logic against DOS attacks
  *  Add the ability to run TH1 scripts after sync requests

<h2>Changes For Version 1.23 (2012-08-08)</h2>
  *  The default checkout database name is now ".fslckout" instead of
     "_FOSSIL_" on unix.  Both names continue to work.
  *  Added the "fossil all changes" command
  *  Added the --ckout option to the "fossil all list" command
  *  Added the "public-pages" glob pattern that can be configured to allow
     anonymous users to see embedded documentation on sites where source
     code should not be accessible to anonymous users.
  *  Allow multiple --tag options on the same "fossil commit" command.
  *  Change the meaning of the --bgcolor option for "fossil commit" to only
     change the color for that one commit.  The new --branchcolor option 
     is available to set a persistent background color.
  *  Add the branch= query parameter to the vdiff page and the --branch option
     to the "fossil diff" command.
  *  Check-in names of the form "root:BRANCH" now refer to the origin of
     the branch.  Hence to see all changes in a branch, use 
     "fossil diff --from root:BRANCH --to BRANCH".  The --branch option on
     the diff command is an alias for the same.
  *  Add the ability to configure ad-units to be displayed between the menu
     bar and the content.
  *  Add the ability to set a background image as part of server configuration.
  *  Allow partial commits of cherrypick merges.
  *  Updates against an uncommitted merge are now a warning, not a fatal error.
  *  Prompt the user to continue if a check-in comment is unedited.
  *  Fixes to case sensitivity settings with the /dir webpage.

<p>A check-in can be identified using any of the following
names:
<ul>
<li> SHA1 hash prefix

<li> <b>tip</b>

<li> <b>next</b>

A timestamp in one of the formats shown below means the most recent
check-in that occurs no later than the timestamp given:

  *   <i>YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM</i>
  *   <i>YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS</i>


The space between the day and the year can optionally be 
replaced by an uppercase <b>T</b> and the entire timestamp can
optionally be followed by "<b>z</b>" or "<b>Z</b>".




In its default configuration, Fossil interprets and displays all dates
in Universal Coordinated Time (UTC).  This tends to work the best for
distributed projects where participants are scattered around the globe.
But there is an option on the Admin/Timeline page of the web-interface to
switch to local time.  The "<b>Z</b>" suffix on an timestamp check-in
name is meaningless if Fossil is in the default mode of using UTC for

  *   <i>YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS</i>

The space between the day and the year can optionally be 
replaced by an uppercase <b>T</b> and the entire timestamp can
optionally be followed by "<b>z</b>" or "<b>Z</b>".  In the fourth
form with fractional seconds, any number of digits may follow the
decimal point, though due to precision limits only the first three
digits will be significant.

In its default configuration, Fossil interprets and displays all dates
in Universal Coordinated Time (UTC).  This tends to work the best for
distributed projects where participants are scattered around the globe.
But there is an option on the Admin/Timeline page of the web-interface to
switch to local time.  The "<b>Z</b>" suffix on an timestamp check-in

fossil update trunk:2010-07-01T14:30
</blockquote>

Would cause Fossil to update the working check-out to be the most recent
check-in on the trunk that is not more recent that 14:30 (UTC) on 
July 1, 2010.

<h2>Root Of A Branch</h2>

A branch name that begins with the "<tt>root:</tt>" prefix refers to the
last check-in in the parent branch prior to the beginning of the branch.
Such a label is useful, for example, in computing all diffs for a single
branch.  The following example will show all changes in the hypothetical
branch "xyzzy":

<blockquote>
fossil diff --from root:xyzzy --to xyzzy
</blockquote>


<h2>Special Tags</h2>

The tag "tip" means the most recent check-in.  The "tip" tag is roughly
equivalent to the timestamp tag "5000-01-01".
