I am particularly bad at trying to describe the significant changes
contained in a release.  Truth be told, I had kind of hoped I could
just put the release out with a hand-waving "new stuff and bugs
fixed!" kind of announcement.  I'll see if I can put something more
significant together, but I would rather get the release done now than
wait until the next holiday weekend so I can write it up :)

I would love some help with this!

      fixed typo
      Merge commit 'djmitche/master'

Ian Zimmerman (2):
      (refs #455) add numbuilds=xx parameters to one_line_per_builds,

      Add the missing sample test emails for the testing of class
      Fix reloading of configuration file with new mail change sources.

Marcus Lindblom (2):
      See #446. Mercurial should clone to specific rev when in clobber
and dirname-branch mode

build status changes

      Added  a sample configuration to enabled Force Build in the Web
UI for clarification
      Added service for github's post-receive service hook

      added remote & branch to the pull
      switched from subprocess to commands, added logging

Michael Lyle (2):
      Add infrastructure so that revisions may have an associated URL,
that displays in the web interface and elsewhere.  This is so buildbot
can integrate against things like websvn which present very nice views
of changes in a revision.
      Add appropriate documentation for the revlinktmpl parameter to
svnpoller. -mpl

Mikael Lind (2):
      environment variable fallbacks for feeds on Windows

Nicolas Sylvain (5):
      (fixes #560) chromium patch to show step times
      Fix mail.py to be backward compatible with python 2.4. In python
2.4 the "x if y else z" syntax is not supported.
      Add a new status resource "BuildStatus" that shows a
waterfall-like display of a single build for a single builder. This is
to be used by the console view that I am working on. (It appears when
you click on a box for a given build.)
      Add a new argument to the waterfall page: "failures_only". If
this argument is set to True, the waterfall will be showing only the
builders that are failing.
      Add a new css file. It is similar to classic.css, but has less
bright colors, and does border rounding if the browser supports it.
build.chromium.org and build.webkit.org are using a similar css file.
