This extension extends core features around history rewriting and draft changesets sharing.

As usual, the release is available on PyPI and upgrade is recommended.

This version introduces support for Mercurial 5.3, fixes installation issues on Python 3, improves various aspects of the documentation and comes with a variety of others bugfixes.
