External Compatibility Breaks


Bug Fixes

* Accept some differences for ``bound_location`` from the config files that
  were leading to a 'ReadOnlyError: A write attempt was made in a read only
  transaction' error. (Vincent Ladeuil, #786980)

* Don't fail with traceback if `bzr serve` is running as a service on Windows,
  and there is no USERNAME, nor BZR_EMAIL or other whoami-related environment
  variables set. (Alexander Belchenko, Bug #660174)


* Updated the "Using stacked branches" section of the user guide to
  describe committing to stacked branches and expanded its discussion of
  pushing a stacked branch. (Andrew Bennetts)


* Remove the deprecation decorators for ``failUnlessExists`` and
  ``failIfExists``. The deprecation "will" occur in 2.4, not
  before. Providing the wrappers is enough as far as 2.3 is concerned.
  (Vincent Ladeuil #794960)
