13  - The entire tree can now be drawn upside-down. This is usefull if you have  - Implement a workaround for browsers that do not understand unordered
14    many revisions in a trunk and want to see the latest first. The configuration    y-coordinates in the imagemap when generated upside down.
   includes an option 'upside_down' with a boolean argument. You can override the  
   default value on the command-line with the '-u' switch, which will negate the  
   configured value.  
   The imagemap generation also supports this, so you will still be able to point  
   and shoot on and between the revisions.  
   
 - You can now instruct CvsGraph to ommit all revisions that are not tagged. This  
   is highly usefull for very large trees/trunks to reduce the produced image  
   size. Note that the first and the last revision in a trunk are not hidden.  
   A new configuration option 'strip_untagged' with boolean argument enables this  
   feature. Alternatively, the command-line provides option '-s' wich negates the  
   value set in the configuration file. You can also strip the first revision if  
   it is untagged using '-S' and/or strip_first_rev.  
   
 - 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.  
15    
16  - The branch tag color and font can now be set separately using branch_tag_*  - Fix the slowness of CvsGraph when parsing very large (typically -kb files) by
17    configuration options.    bypassing the parsing of the actual deltatext. On my machine (K6-2/500/256M
18      it makes a difference of 7.5s vs 0.04s on a 93MByte file, without counting
19      disk-overhead; with disk-overhead it takes 12.5s).  Downside is that the
20      logentry cannot be expanded if the file is not parsed in full (see below).
21      Use option parse_logs to enable log-expansions.
22    
23    - Implemented logentry expansions using %l and %L. You must enable full parsing
24      (option parse_logs) for this to work.
25    
26    - Fixed a possible buffer overflow in the string expansion. However, this is a
27      very low-risk overflow, since it will trash the heap and _not_ the stack.
28      Furthermore, you need to pass strings from CGI directly to cvsgraph without
29      any checks to come even close to trash the heap.
30    
31    - Fixed a segfault on IRIX in the bsearch calls. These lookups could be called
32      with a NULL pointer and IRIX's libc doesn't like that.
33    
34    - Implement left to right and right to left images. The entire tree can now be
35      drawn horizontally when option left_right is set. Using both left_right and
36      upside_down results in right to left images.
37    
38    - Implement limits on how many tags are printed in a revision box using new
39      config parameter rev_maxtags. Ellipsis (...) are printed if the limit becomes
40      active.
41    
42    - Changed the configure script to handle libraries more intelligently. This
43      should be able to handle static libraries better.
