One of the "must have" features for any version control system is the ability to work on MS Windows. Although I personally escaped Redmond a few years ago, the reality is that most projects I work on are still cross-platform.

My impression is that arx is in a better position to work on MS Windows that tla, because it uses shorter path names, and more standard libraries.

However, I noticed in the recent 2.1.1 changelog that arx now uses gnome url encoding, in addition to the earlier dependency on gnome-vfs. I'm a bit concerned that too much reliance on gnome may make it harder to port to MS Windows later. Is this a realistic concern?


P.S. Walter: Thanks for continuing to make arx more and more usable. You seem to continue to make excellent choices about how to sift through all the tla features and distill out a simple but powerful (enough) set.
