RBTools 0.5.5 is released

We just put out a release of RBTools 0.5.5. This fixes a handful of problems reported to us for rbt patch, Subversion, and Git.

rbt patch, one of our new tools introduced in 0.5.3, has had several bug fixes for applying commits to Git, and for properly handling Unicode characters in commit messages.

We fixed an issue with looking up repositories using Subversion. Some of you using the suggested RBTools configuration for your Subversion repositories have reported problems, which we’ve addressed in this release. Please let us know if you still encounter any issues.

When using rbt post with --revision-range revision1:revision2, RBTools 0.5.3 would fail to parse the revisions. While it allowed '..'-separated revisions, support for ':' was prematurely removed. We’ve restored this compatibility for now, but there are big changes coming in RBTools 0.6.

To upgrade your copy of RBTools, run:

    sudo easy_install -U RBTools
