Mercurial and TortoiseHG

For anyone on Windows using Mercurial and TortoiseHG 2.2.2, an issue has been noticed by various people when adding files. It appears there’s an issue with Windows and Mercurial case detection, and occasionally the workbench will add files in uppercase.

Here’s a link to the issue https://bitbucket.org/tortoisehg/thg/issue/1521/…

This will be fixed as soon as the next version of THG is released. Perhaps tomorrow morning…

If you experience it now, you’ll notice that when you add files, THG will popup a dialog, and the filenames listed will be capitalized.

The workaround that seems to be working for me is to right-click and forget the added files, restart the workbench and add again. It appears to be related to the workbench often being open for long periods of time, and an issue.

It's only fair to share...
