Mercurial gathering in New York City

Pierre-Yves David

We are organizing a meeting in New York City on Tuesday, January 22th with the folks from, an online casting platform. They are happy users and contributors of Mercurial and its evolve extension.

We will be talking about the news in the Mercurial world, and in particular of the new features of the upcoming 4.9. So, if you want to chat about latest performance improvements, the Heptapod collaboration platform, the changeset evolution concept, modern workflows or the rise of Rust in Mercurial, this is the perfect opportunity. You'll be able to meet some of the core developers involved in these topics, chat with other Mercurial users or hack with us on your favorite version control system.

We are in particular the people behind Heptapod, an ongoing effort to add Mercurial support to Gitlab that led to a working prototype last year. You can expect exciting news about it in 2019. In the meanwhile, by attending the meeting, you can learn more about it, get a demo, or become an early tester.

Backstage will welcome you with drink and food from 5:30 PM at the Backstage office: 45 Main St, Brooklyn, NY 11201, USA.

If you can't make it on the 22th, we are in town for the week. Ping us on our twitter or come say hi on our IRC channel #octobus-hg on
