We have just released an update to the preview of CVS Suite 2009 Trial
Edition for Windows to improve support for Windows 7/Vista and Windows
2008/R2, Linux and Mac OS X and fix some minor bugs.  CVS Suite 2009 is
based on the 2.8.01 codeline (Soolin). 

Included in the trial edition are these components NOT AVAILABLE in the
Community Edition:
* CVS Suite High Performance Server Service
* Bugzilla, Mantis and Atlassian Jira Integration
* Multi-Site unison synchronisation
* Visual Studio Integration (SCCI)
* CVS Suite Studio - Graphical CVS Client 
* Release Manager
* Install Guide / eBook
* Using CVS Suite with Eclipse guide
* Using CVS Suite with SQL Navigator and Oracle Guide 

This is a major upgrade to CVS Suite Server and we now have trial
editions available for Linux, Mac OS X and Windows with more platforms
coming in the next few weeks - including Debian Lenny i386 and SuSE SLES

The trial installation guide for linux/unix is not available yet - but
install is straightforward, eg: on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 x86:
$ tar xzf cvs-suite-trial-2009-3759-rh9-rpm.tar.gz
$ sudo rpm -e cvs
$ sudo rpm --nodeps -i cvsnt-
$ sudo /sbin/chkconfig --add cvslockd
$ sudo /sbin/chkconfig --add cvsmanager
$ sudo /etc/init.d/cvslockd start
$ sudo /etc/init.d/cvsmanager start

Note: CVS Suite 2009 is still undergoing regression testing and so
customer release will not be available for a few more days (or longer if
we find problems).
