Announcing Gertty 1.1.0

Gertty is a console-based interface to the Gerrit Code Review system.

Gertty is designed to support a workflow similar to reading network
news or mail.  It syncs information from Gerrit to local storage to
support disconnected operation and easy manipulation of local git
repos.  It is fast and efficient at dealing with large numbers of
changes and projects.

The full README may be found here:


Changes since 1.0.3:

* Gertty is now packaged in both Debian and Fedora.

* Threaded change list: when changes depend on each other, their
  relationship is shown visually in the change list.  This is very
  similar to how mail and news readers show message threads.

* Starred changes are supported.

* Sortable change list: lists of changes may now be sorted by change
  number, or how recently they were updated.

* Summary vote values are now colorized in change lists.

* Review dialog improvements: the review dialog now includes
  descriptions of votes and appropriate colors for each value.

* Improved responsiveness: background syncing operations release
  database locks faster to avoid UI update delays.  Also, toggling
  whether a change is hidden or reviewed is faster.

* A verbose logging option has been added (less info than debug, but
  more than the standard level which only logs errors).

* Long lines are now wrapped in the side-by-side diff view.

* Gertty now checks that its config file is not world readable if it
  contains a password (which is already optional).

* Several bug fixes related to:

  * Keymap customization
  * Errors displaying files with no changes
  * Syncing changes with draft patchsets
  * Errors displaying binary diffs
  * Character encoding issues
  * Searching
