 - Fix warnings in readconf on some 'older' compiler systems.  
13    
14  - Implement new option to generate proper maps for different levels of HTML.  - Fix POSIX compliance in timezone handling. Only putenv() is used now.
15    The option -x[34x] determines HTML 3.x (default), HTML 4.x or XHTML style  
16    maps.  - Fix branch-count when branches get folded.

22    - Fix complaining about a new CVSNT keyword properties
 - Implemented HTMLizing of expansion with %(...%). This prevents a possible  
   cross site scripting exploit when you use '<', '>' or '"' in tagnames.  
   This is a remote chance (you must be stupid to use these characters in a  
   tagname) but anyway, your system can be under attack.

 Alternately, you can hack the 'cvsweb' package to call CvsGraph. There are  
 several scripts and patches available from the CvsGraph homepage (see below for  
 address). However, the scripts are no longer maintained because ViewCVS has  
 native support now.

104      If you are interested in tag-management with respect to the correct branch
105      information, then I suggest that you take a look at the contribution from
106      Henrik Carlqvist. He submitted some server-side scripts that can manage tags
107      in a better fashion than cvs on its own.
