Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

Is your recommended build version(>57g) only                          
important for the cvs nt server or is also important                  
to upgrade clients, eg. Tortoise or WinCVS                            
to get the speed enhancement?
