 - The boxes to identify the branches can now be drawn on both sides of the trunk.  
   Configuration option 'branch_dupbox' with boolean argument activates this  
   feature, which is usefull when the tree is drawn upside-down.The command-line  
   option '-b' negated the configured value.  
   
 - 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 :-)  
   
 - Implemented string drawing using freetype interface of libgd. It looks very  
   nice, but it is significantly slower than gd's standard bitmap fonts. Extra  
   configuration parameters *_ttfont and *_ttsize set font and size. Option  
   use_ttf enables ttf rendering. Note that gd's bitmap fonts are used as a  
   fallback in case where the ttfont contains errors or is not found.  
   
 - The branch tag color and font can now be set separately using branch_tag_*  
   configuration options.  
   
 - It is now possible to draw the connector lines between the boxes thicker  
   by setting thick_lines to something else than 1. Maximum thickness is  
   limited to lines of 11 pixels wide.
