Seems like bzr is approaching its first major release with the release of the third release candidate for the 1.0 series today. According to the respective announcement by Martin Pool on the bazaar-mailinglist this morning, this is supposed to be the last candidate before the big milestone.
I honestly wouldn’t have thought that bzr would reach the big 1.0 before Mercurial, although I guess I could have guessed so the moment they made the version jump from 0.1x.x to 0.9x.x a few months ago. Now I’m really curious to see if bzr will gain some more momentum outside of the Ubuntu world with this major release. Personally I would really love to see the integration of bzr as supported code repository by the ohloh-folks.
