What's new since 0.5.0?

- Updated git to 2.21.0 for the helper.
- Experimental native mercurial support (used when mercurial libraries are not available) now has feature parity.
- Try to read the git system config from the same place as git does. This fixes native HTTPS support with Git on Windows.
- Avoid pushing more commits than necessary in some corner cases (see e.g. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1529360).
- Added an --abbrev argument for `git cinnabar {git2hg,hg2git}` to display shortened sha1s.
- Can now pass multiple revisions to `git cinnabar fetch`.
- Don't require the requests python module for `git cinnabar download`.
- Fixed `git cinnabar fsck` file checks to actually report errors.
- Properly return an error code from `git cinnabar rollback`.
- Track last fsck'ed metadata and allow `git cinnabar rollback --fsck` to go back to last known good metadata directly.
- `git cinnabar reclone` can now be rolled back.
- Added support for git bundles as cinnabarclone source.
- Added alternate styles of remote refs.
- More resilient to interruptions when HTTP Range requests are supported.
- Fixed off-by-one when storing mercurial heads.
- Better handling of mercurial branchmap tips.
- Better support for end of parts in bundle v2.
- Improvements handling urls to local mercurial repositories.
- Fixed compatibility with (very) old mercurial servers when using mercurial 5.0 libraries.
- Converted Continuous Integration scripts to Python 3.
