Version 0.29-1 of monotone has been uploaded.

monotone is a free distributed version control system. it provides a
simple, single-file transactional version store, with fully disconnected
operation and an efficient peer-to-peer synchronization protocol. it
understands history-sensitive merging, lightweight branches, integrated
code review and 3rd party testing. it uses cryptographic version naming
and client-side RSA certificates. it has good internationalization
support, has no external dependencies, runs on linux, solaris, OSX,
windows, and other unixes, and is licensed under the GNU GPL.

Major new features:

- The output of 'mtn status' has been changed significantly; the
  output formerly used by 'mtn status --brief' has become the
  default.  For output similar to the old 'mtn status', see
  'mtn automate get_revision'.

- It is now significantly easier to control what merger
  monotone uses to resolve conflicts; for instance, to use
  emacs to resolve conflicts, add:
     merger = "emacs"
  to your .monotonerc file.  To override temporarily, you can
  also use the environment variable MTN_MERGE, which takes the
  same strings.  Currently recognized strings are "kdiff3",
  "xxdiff", "opendiff", "tortoisemerge", "emacs", "vim", and

- Formerly, monotone's sync-over-ssh support required that an
  absolute path be used, with a URL like:
  The following syntaxes are now supported as well:
