Hi,

This is to announce the release of a toy project aimed at rewriting hgk
in python/gtk.

The purpose of the project was to have a fast enough interface to be able
browse the linux kernel sources.

Existing features include :
 - browsing the revision tree
 - find as you type
 - restrict revisions based on modified files

The screenshot can be found here : http://www.logilab.org/3438

The project is available only through it's mercurial repository using

hg clone http://www.logilab.org/hg/hgview

debian packages and tarballs should be available soon.

to use simply run :
$ python path_to_hgview/hgview.py
from inside any mercurial repository

You will need python2.4, pygtk (including glade support) and its
dependencies to run it.

You can submit feature requests, bugs and bug fixes to :
python-projects at logilab.org
The project page is at : http://www.logilab.org/projects/hgview
where you can find the existing bugs and feature requests


The tree drawing algorithm originaly comes from the work of Tristan
Wibberley who transposed the algorithm from hgk and posted is work on
the mercurial mailing list sometime in 2005.
