I am pleased to announce the release of Stacked Git 0.19.

The big feature for this release is Python 3 support, but 0.19 also
contains some important bug fixes and more robust test infrastructure.

The full release notes follow.



                       Stacked Git 0.19 released

StGit is a Python application providing functionality similar to Quilt
(i.e. pushing/popping patches to/from a stack) on top of Git. These
operations are performed using Git commands, and the patches are stored
as Git commit objects, allowing easy merging of the StGit patches into
other repositories using standard Git functionality.

  and 3.7. PyPy interpreters are also supported.

  characters.  Also correctly decode email headers containing quoted
  encoded words.
