[ANNOUNCE] FSVS 1.1.14 released

Message Hello everybody,

FSVS 1.1.14 is released, with a few new features and some bugfixes.

There are some fixes I wanted to get into this version (diff output
and behaviour, revert to a revision) but didn't make it - I'd need a
few uninterrupted hours to think that through, and that just doesn't
work in the train.

So, to not cause endless delays, I'm releasing 1.1.14 now - and try
really hard to find the time.

New features:
* New option for conflict handling; allows "stop" (historical default),
  "local", "remote", "both" or "merge".
  Uses an external "merge" binary (but can be configured, like "diff").
* New "resolve" action, to mark conflicts as resolved.
* "update" can now be restricted to an arbitrary subset of URLs.
  Please note that that doesn't mean *partly* updating your working
  copy - it just means that if you use 50 URLs you can update a
  single one.

Other small changes:
- Filter option "text" now means removed entries, too.
- "urls dump" can now work verbose to produce more human-readable
- Checkout now prints the entries as they're checked out.
- opt_parse() is now only optionally silent; the user gets better
  messages on wrong options.
- I've tried to get better compatibility with Solaris. Tell me if your
  system isn't supported, or you get errors on "./configure" or "make".

- The option "filter" wasn't taken from config files.
- Bugfix for "st -N -N" printing all deleted entries.
- Fix for "svn log | head -1" sometimes erroring out (EPIPE).
  "status" still has a problem. I'm working on a clean solution
  for _all_ commands, but have to think about a few corner cases first.
- Querying the URL of entries could cause a buffer end (and so the
  heap, too) to be overwritten.
- "revert" would save the dir-list, even when an error occurs.
- Other small fixes and cleanups.

Please fetch the sources from http://freshmeat.net​/projects/fsvs as
usual, or hope for your distribution packager to provide a package.

If you have any feedback - be it positive or negative - please don't
hesitate to provide it! There're two mailing lists (users and dev),
or you can mail me directly.
I'd be glad to hear about your experiences!
