Codestriker 1.9.6 released

* Ability to create Codestriker topics automatically from a Subversion
commit, via the bin/subversion-post-commit.pl script. Once the
appropriate configuration is set at the start of the file, simply
add it to your Subversion repos/hooks/post-commit file as the
following:

/path/to/codestriker/bin/subversion-post-commit.pl "$REPOS" "$REV"

* "Default to head" option for CVS topic creation was not used when
selected, but when it was unselected. This has now been fixed.
Spotted by mnk26@users.sourceforge.net.

* Fix for "v-string in use/require non-portable" warning when using
Perl 5.10 from rob_webset@users.sourceforge.net.

* Deleting a topic connected with a TestDirector bug has been fixed
by rob_webset@users.sourceforge.net.

* Creation of Subversion topics which use a file for the module field
in the create topic screen may not work correctly for some versions
of Subversion. This has now been fixed by
rob_webset@users.sourceforge.net.

* Make sure XML representation of a topic has its data properly escaped.
Fixed by rob_webset@users.sourceforge.net.

* Ability to parse git patches correctly.

* Ability to parse hg diffs (Mercurial SCM) correctly.

* Better detection of filename extensions for highlighting. This
previously caused issues for temporary directories which contained
a period, but the filename itself didn't. Reported by
rob_webset@users.sourceforge.net.

* Scmbug integration now works correctly if multiple bug IDs are
specified is the create topic screen. Fixed by
rob_webset@users.sourceforge.net.

* Fixed the parsing of Subversion diffs which contained modifications
within property sets. Also fixed case where file in diff is empty.
Reported by clechasseur@users.sourceforge.net.

* Show total added/removed line count after table of contents on view
topic screen. Also show same line counts on create topic email.

* Make the topic title in the edit comment page link directly to the
code location being commented on rather than just the top of the
view topic page.

* Use pegged revisions instead of operative revisions when retrieving
files from Subversion to handle situations where files have been moved
within the repository since the review was created. Fixed by
clechasseur@users.sourceforge.net.

* In the create topic email, show the URL to the associated bug records
if $bugtracker is defined in codestriker.conf rather than just the bug
IDs.

* Allow the Parallel links to work for new files and display them
appropriately.
