Another Fortnight gone by, and perhaps this was the time when we got most work done.
This time around I added two new features to mercurial.
They are: The allfiles mode
This would work on a single revision and get all the files that were
there in that revision. So it’s like grepping on a previous state.
Using this with wdir() :: hg grep -r "wdir()" --allfiles is what the
default behaviour is desired for grep.

Then I also added the
diff mode: This is a duplicate of the exisitng
all flag. Since
--all searches diffs, there diff is a better name for it.
--all flag is still here for backward compatibility reasons.

I am working on two more patches right now, will be posting about that in the next blog.
