New Horizons Pluto flyby animation based on real image data
 
An animation showing the New Horizons Pluto flyby on July 14, 2015. The time covered is 09:35 to 13:35 (closest approach occurred near 11:50). Pluto's atmosphere is included and should be fairly realistic from about 10 seconds into the animation and to the end. (It's important to note that the backlit atmosphere effects are exaggerated, as well as the brightness of Pluto's dark side.) Earlier it is largely just guesswork that can be improved in the future once all data has been downlinked from the spacecraft. Light from Pluto's satellite Charon illuminates Pluto's night side but is exaggerated here, in reality it would be only barely visible or not visible at all. The field of view is 12.5 degrees.

Sounds like Facebook is about to switch to a single Mercurial repo for all code and has standardized on Atom as a code editor.
Any time Facebook talks about technical matters I tend to listen. They have a track record of demonstrating engineering leadership in several spaces. And, unlike many companies that just talk, Facebook often gives others access to those ideas via source code and healthy open source projects.

+Mercurial 3.5 was released last week with lots of new features, including the bundle2 wire protocol being enabled, the progress extension being made a core feature, and faster hg status. Read all about them in the excellent blog post by +Gregory Szorc. #mercurial #hg #dvcs  
Mercurial 3.5 was released today (following Mercurial's time-based schedule of releasing a new version every 3 months). There were roughly 1000 commits between 3.4 and 3.5, making this a busy version. Although, 1000 commits per release has become the new norm, as development on Mercurial has ...

Lots of good +Mercurial stuff coming out of Facebook these days! You can now get sparse checkouts (creating only part of your working copy — makes "hg status", "hg diff", etc faster) and shallow clones (download only the latest version of your files). This makes it much easier to work with gigantic repositories. There's also a push-rebase extension that does SVN-like merging (rebase, really) on the server side to avoid races on push. Sounds convenient, but it implies a non-pull request workflow.

They've also released a great hgwatchman extension that makes "hg status" instantaneous by using inotify or fsevents to listen for filesystem modifications. Most other commands also get a speed boost since they call status under the hood.

Very exciting developments! The question is now if it's too late to matter for regular developers... Given the dominance of +Git, will Mercurial will end up being the hyper-scalable revision control system used by a few big corporations?

I’d like to introduce the remotenames extension I’ve been working on. It is derived from Augie Fackler’s remotebranches extension. This extension keeps track of remote branches and remote bookmarks. Built on top of the namespaces API in Mercurial, it requires version 3.3 or above.
