Xtla is the Emacs front-end to the GNU Arch revision control system. It provides user-friendly wrappers for tla native commands and some higher level features such as the bookmark manager.

Here are some key features of "Xtla":
PCL-CVS like interface for tla inventory
Archive browser. Navigate painlessly in archives, categories, branches, versions, ...
Good integration in Emacs. Almost everything can be done from within the editor
Bookmark manager. Keep the most frequently used arch locations in your bookmark buffer.
Integration of ediff, Emacs's graphical diff tool. (Even outside Xtla it's great, you should try it.
To view changes made in a local tree
To view and resolve conflicts after a merge.
Interface to view missing patches from all your partners with a single command
An Emacs mode for arch related files (log files, =tagging-method, configuration files - cf. build-config)

What's New in This Release:
M-x baz-update RET can use either merge, replay, or update.
Changelog buffer, cat-log-mode buffers, and *Article* buffers (in Gnus) show clickable buttons for revision names (and other Arch names).
An email notification is available from the Changelog buffer (bound to "M").
Several bazaaz 1.5 compatibility issues have been solved.
There are many bugfixes.
