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.

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 when installed or running as a non-Administrative user (a person
who is not a member of Administrators or Domain Admins groups).  Other
downloads are available for Mac OS X Intel, Red Hat Linux x86 and SuSE
Linux x64.  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 'All About CVS'
* Guide: Using CVS Suite with Eclipse 
* Guide: Using CVS Suite with SQL Navigator and Oracle

This is a major upgrade to CVS Suite Server and we now have trial
editions available for Red Hat Linux x86, SuSE Linux x64, Mac OS X Intel
and Windows with more platforms coming in the next few weeks - including
Debian Lenny i386.

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 a
recommended customer release will not be available for a few more days
(or longer if we find problems).
