Crucible/Fisheye support for earlier Mercurial (pre 1.5)

I'm evaluating Crucible and hit a wall on the requirements for Mercurial 1.5 or higher. The timing is bad for us now to upgrade our 1.4.3 Mercurial. Is there any earlier release of Crucible/Fisheye that supports Mercurial 1.4.3?

The first version of Fisheye/Crucible to support mercurial was 2.3 and it also required Mercurial version 1.5.1. So, unfortunately, the answer to you question is no.

Although Fisheye/Crucible only supports Mercurial 1.5.1 and above (from 2.3 onwards) you may still be able to use FishEye, provided you are able to use a supported version of Mercurial on the server which runs FishEye. Mercurial's Wire Protocol allows repositories created with older versions of mercurial to be cloned with a newer one (and visa versa). This means that provided the repository URL in FishEye is a wired one (i.e. not local file system. e.g. ssh, http, https) you should be able to get FishEye working.

Mercurial does sometimes introduce incompabilities in the wire protocol
