This is qgit-1.4

With qgit you will be able to browse revision histories, view patch content
and changed files, graphically following different development branches.


 - View revisions, diffs, files history, files annotation, archive tree.

 - Commit changes visually cherry picking modified files.

 - Apply or format patch series from selected commits, drag and
   drop commits between two instances of qgit.

 - Associate commands sequences, scripts and anything else executable
   to a custom action. Actions can be run from menu and corresponding
   output is grabbed by a terminal window.

  - qgit implements a GUI for the most common StGIT commands like push/pop
   and apply/format patches. You can also create new patches or refresh
   current top one using the same semantics of git commit, i.e. cherry
   picking single modified files.


To let user to quickly invoke native git commands from the menu bar a
'custom action' build dialog has been added.

It is possible to associate commands sequences, scripts and anything
else executable to a custom action, give it a name and then call from
menu when needed. The corresponding output is grabbed by a terminal

An action can also ask for command line arguments before to run so
to allow for maximum flexibility.

Just to name a few, I have created some stuff like 'git pull', make,
'make install', git pull with input argument and so on, and I've found
them quite useful.

There is also some work on near tag information and better tag markers,
see changelog for details.
