Darcs is an advanced revision control system. It has two particularly distinctive features which differ from other revision control systems: each copy of the source is a fully functional branch, and underlying it is a consistent and powerful theory of patches. In spite of its power, darcs is simple to use, in part because of the symmetry that is restored by making each copy of the repository a branch.

Release Notes: This release provides GHC 6.10 support and fixes a crash on Windows with the darcs help command.
Release Notes: This version provides over 40 bugfixes and 20 new features since 2.0.2. The most notable changes are defaulting to darcs-2 format repositories, better HTTP support, and repository correctness (fixes to the pending patch).
Release Notes: This release adds numerous optimizations and minor bugfixes. Darcs now scales much better to large repositories, and performs much better on huge files with many changes. "Darcs changes" has been extended to allow display of entire patches with the --verbose flag. Experimental support for working with Git repositories has been added.
Release Notes: A number of bugs that were present in version 1.0.2 have been fixed. Most particularly, there was a (generally harmless) bug in darcs 1.0.2 which led to a frightening message about an error in writing pending changes. Besides bugfixes, there were also some interface enhancements, including an improved unpull/unrecord patch selection interface and finer-grained control over colorization and character escaping in darcs' output.
Release Notes: There were no changes made since the last release candidate (1.0.2rc4). Several moderately serious bugs were fixed that were present in darcs 1.0.1. In addition, a few minor documentation and error message improvements were made, and an option was added to set the executable bit properly for scripts.
