24    A new configuration option 'strip_untagged' with boolean argument enables this

34  - Configuration no longer requires a configuration file. All options can now be  
   entered on the commandline using '-O'. CvsGraph will still read the  
   configuration file if one is avaliable, but it is no longer an error if none  
   is found.  
   
 - If no file is entered on the command-line, then the input is taken from  
   standard input, like all decent *nix programs.  
   
 - ViewCVS (http://viewcvs.sourceforge.net) is now officially supporting the use  
   of CvsGraph in their code as of version 0.8. So, no bad hacks needed anymore  
   to get it working, and it always looks nice :-)

 several scripts and patches available from the CvsGraph homepage (see below for  
 address). However, the scripts are no longer maintained because ViewCVS has
