I've just updated Mercurial to 2.7 and when I tell SourceTree to use the System Mercurial and select the correct directory, I get 'Patching Mercurial Failed":-
SourceTree requires a few small changes to Mercurial to run optimally, but applying one of these patches (hg_patch_prompting_hg1.9.diff) against your system copy failed with the error ''
SourceTree will use its internal copy of Mercurial instead.
Note: the error is empty. How do I fix this?
Yes we don't support later versions of Mercurial yet for various reasons.

This will be going higher up on our list of things to do, and hopefully we can support them in a sub-version.
I've created an issue for this here and marked it as critical: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/SRCTREE-1816
Hope that helps
Kieran, how's this going? Mercurial is up to 2.9, with a 3.0 RC. SourceTree still ships 2.2 and can't use 2.9 as the system hg because its plugins are not compatible. If the consequence of not having a beta stage is sticking with a two year old (May 2012) dependency series, should you perhaps re-think the beta?
As a project manager, I have discovered that different developers want to bring their previous branching method with them when they join the team. Some developers are used to performing individual wo...
