Bazaar Explorer 0.8.3 has been released. This is a small bug-fix + new
translations improvement over 0.8.2. This will be bundled with the
Windows installers for 2.0.1 and 2.1.0beta1. I'll sent out a formal
announcement after those releases are announced.

More interesting to many users here is a long-desired feature I got
going last night in trunk (0.9.0dev): virtual repositories. From NEWS ...

* Virtual repositories are now supported. These are plain directories
  which are searched for nested locations. If you attempt to open a
  location which is not a normal (shared) repository, branch or
  checkout, you will be asked if you wish to open it as a virtual
  repository. No question is asked if the location is bookmarked or
  given on the command line. The virtual repository view is pretty
  much identical to a normal repository view, though some menu actions
  (like Explore --> Location Information) are not enabled.

If you're happy running Explorer from trunk, please grab rev 296 or
later and test this new feature.
