CVSNT 2.5.04 (Zen) Build 3510 (stable) You can download this release from: http://march-hare.com/cvspro/ The initial release of CVSNT 2.5.04 did not include install packages for PowerPC Mac and HPUX PA-RISC and Itanium/Integrity. Also many people running Windows with incorrectly configured DNS experienced problems with the initial release. This update includes a few patches from 2.5.05 to resolve this issue, and is also compiled with the latest Visual Studio .NET 2003 patches. Fixed/New in this release: ----------------------------- For a complete description see the ChangeLog in the source tree. * 5647 Update for Windows, Mac and HPUX includes: 5632, 5445, 5622 and 5353 As of today - when you purchase CVS Suite you now also get a complimentary copy of the CVSNT Community Edition 2.5.04 with the advertising message disabled by default. If you have 50 staff using CVSNT we recommend that you purchase 50 CVS Suite licenses so you can use the quality tested commercial build - but if you have less budget then you can purchase less licenses then download and use the non-advertising CVSNT 2.5.04 build instead. We will not provide any commercial support or commercial documentation for CVSNT 2.5.04. We will be releasing CVSNT 2.5.05 and CVS Suite 2009 in the next couple of months, and beta versions will start appearing very soon: * CVSNT 2.5.05 will use the latest libraries and compilers and be tested on the latest operating systems - we will continue to provide binary download packages for Windows XP/Vista/W7 and RHEL5 * CVS Suite 2009 will provide a new high performance server and we will provide evaluation copies for both the server and client for all supported platforms except AS/400 Why upgrade to 2.5.04? * multi-site: supports multiple 'write through' repositories * better WAN performance with large files * improved rename, improved branch/tag performance in large repo's * tested on xp/vista and server 2003/2008 both x32 and x64 * improved audit * all future bug fixes will be applied to this release Fixed/New in previous release: -------------------------------- For a complete description see the ChangeLog in the source tree. * 5403 Crash on rdiff with -D 1970-01-01 with any +ve timezone * 4956 cvswrappers "*" overrides all other wrappers always * 5154 When a changed file is committed with a renamed flie, .directory_history is not created * 5389 .ttf - true type files should be binary by default * 5397 Do not put advertising in commit message if supplied with -M * 5398 On commit put an advertising message in the 'log' * 5396 .cur files should be added as binary as default * 5312 release -y option ignored * 4713 Auth fails from linux with sspi when no domain specified * 5076 mini.so crashes cvslockd on 64bit systems * 5283 Crashes when combining newly added file with rename in one commit * 5237 cvs co -p -r CVSNT_2_0_x 'directory stack overrun' on debian * 5307 Audit doesn't record correct info columns * 5308 Oracle NLS support does not work on linux 64 bit * 5316 CVSNT: Debian build (thanks to Andreas!) * 5328 HQX fixes for OSX * 5329 Support bi-directional merges (inverse merge) * 5002 (RC6) Oracle support in audit * 5192 (RC6) cvstools.dll depends on missing msvcrt and msvcr71 * 5202 (RC6) Doc: log -r information incorrect * 5225 (RC6) cvs add -k+x always makes files -kvx, even binary ones * 5231 (RC6) MS Project (*.mpp) files added as text * 5235 (RC6) Allow ServerTraceFile to be set to 'per process' filename * 5250 (RC6) audit does not update EndTime * 5251 (RC6) audit does not record return code * 5252 (RC6) patches from Chuck for script trigger (windows) * 4729 (RC6) Unicode file added on branch has corrupt line endings * 5155 (RC6) after file renamed, retrieve file using tag, wrong filename is retrieved * 5225 (RC6) cvs add -k+x always makes files -kvx, even binary one * 5033 (RC6) 'cvs [update aborted]: end of file from server' when merge * 5158 (RC6) Cannot checkout single file if it is renamed, cannot checkout to stdou * 5262 (RC7) CVSNTCPL: discourage use of reserved words in repo name * 5264 (RC7) Crash if 'cvs -q update -d -P' and dir contains files not in CVS * 5158 Cannot checkout single file if it is renamed, cannot checkout to stdout * 5160 Unable to evaluate xpath expression 'file[cvs:filename(@name,$name)]/editor[cvs:username(@name,$user)]' * 5162 Write proxy repo crashes on tag -F * 5165 Proxy server should fire its own triggers * 5166 Proxy server may want to use separate CVSROOT/passwd file * 5167 Update makefiles / autoconf * 5168 Server stats to be sent from client and --nostats option * 5153 rename commit does not activate server / no .directory_history * 5154 When a changed file is committed with a renamed flie, .directory_history is not created * 5155 after file renamed, retrieve file using tag, wrong filename is retrieved * 0000 include evaluation of CVS Suite Studio * 0000 safe version of --lf (and --cr and --crlf) * 0000 rcsinfo fixes * 0000 use md5 to avoid sending large files across network * 0000 make cvs diff always ignore BOM * 0000 Added (limited) proxy support * 0000 postcommand can get the return code of the command (%x). * 0000 windows installers now separate client & server * 0000 separate mdns librares * 0000 Oracle audit support * 0000 DLLs are searched using a smart DLL loader * 0000 On Windows system libraries are now stored in Common Files * 0000 SQLite upgrade The download is available now from the main site: http://march-hare.com/cvspro/ Regards, Arthur Barrett
