Been a few months since I reached out to you regarding the now licensed version of HG Labs. Back than you stated that by now branching would be implemented with in your product. Is branching now working?

By biggest concern/ question is what is involved in upgrading to the licensed version from the free version we installed back at the end of last year.

    Hello, Gordon!

    I assume that you're referring to Merge Requests. This functionality under
    development, but there's basic HgFlow support (
    http://hglabhq.com/documentation/user-guide/repositories#hgflow-support )
    if your team is using it.

    I expect at least two months before Merge Requests ship.

    As for updating to the licensed version, there's not much you need to do. If you're running pre-1.5 version, just remove the HgLab Installation Directory and delete anything related to HgLab from the IIS. HgLab Installer will do everything else itself, and HgLab will take care of managing HgLab Home Directory and Database.

    See http://hglabhq.com/documentation/installation/upgrading-hglab for a bit more information.

    Hello, Jay!

    You can download the latest version (which currently happens to be 1.7.2)
    from https://hglabhq.com/download and upgrade whatever version you are
    currently running. Please take note of the "Upgrading from HgLab 1.4 and
    Earlier" remark over at
    https://hglabhq.com/documentation/installation/upgrading-hglab . If you'll
    need to move HgLab to a different server, here's a quick guide:
    . Or I can always help with setting up HgLab

    HgLab can be purchased using credit card, PayPal or Amazon Payments.
    Purchase Order is also an option, but personally I have no experience
    working with those. You can pick whichever license type suits your
    organization best over at https://hglabhq.com/purchase .

    After receiving a license key, you need to go "Administration" (
    https://hglabhq.com/documentation/administrator-guide ) - "Licensing",
    paste the key into the License Data textarea and click "Update License".
    That's all it takes.

    And a quick note: Merge Requests are not yet shipped, but we're getting
