 - Fix warnings in readconf on some 'older' compiler systems.  
13    
14  - Implement new option to generate proper maps for different levels of HTML.  - Add patch from Henrik Carlqvist <henca@users.SourceForge.net>
15    The option -x[34x] determines HTML 3.x (default), HTML 4.x or XHTML style          * add option rev_hidenumber for disabling revision number display.
16    maps.          * add option tag_ignore_merge for disabling merge_from/merge_to display
17              if matched with tag_ignore.
18  - Implement a scheme to visualize merges based on tag names. If tags are          * add resorting of branches on how many revisions they have. This saves
19    consistently named at the mergepoint and the destination, then these points            space under circumstances.
20    can be detected using regular expressions. Several new configuration  
21    options, merge_*, describe the tags.  - Add option merge_findall so that merge_from/merge_to tags can have multiple
22      matches.
23  - Implemented HTMLizing of expansion with %(...%). This prevents a possible  
24    cross site scripting exploit when you use '<', '>' or '"' in tagnames.  - Add the patches supplied by Ville Skytta <ville.skytta@iki.fi>
25    This is a remote chance (you must be stupid to use these characters in a          * fix spelling in the manpages and config file
26    tagname) but anyway, your system can be under attack.          * fix & -> &amp; problem in config
27            * fix generics in wrapper example
28  - Fixed backing up in the lexer. This improves speed slightly because no  
29    rule requires lookahead over one character anymore.  - Add a fix for the zimezone problem as suggested by Henrik Carlqvist
30      <henca@users.SourceForge.net> by using the environment.
31  - Fixed a bug in the initial placing of left to right displaying.  
32    - Fix a bug in the detection of branch-numbers in the logical ,v file structure
33  - Half-fixed a bug in the kerning code, where a loop-safeguard was triggered    (reported by Daniel Dumitrache <ddumitrache@bitdefender.com>). The branch was
34    way too soon (at 100 iterations). This has now been changed to 10000, but    deduced from the revision, but that would fail for revision numbers that are
35    should be dependent on the number of drawable branches, as the function is    like magic branch-numbers (x.x.0.x) because they were interpreted. These
36    _at least_ order O(N^2). However, more analysis is required to ensure    revision numbers are now correctly handled.
37    safe guarding under all circumstances.  
38    - Added patch from Gordon Hollingworth <Gordon.Hollingworth@TTP.com> to use
39  - Implemented folding of empty branches. Many uses of CVS create many    mergepoints as implemented by CVSNT. Adapted the patch to enable both
40    branches on the same revision but have no commits on them. This occurs    tag-detected merges and mergepoints to be shows at the same time.
41    often with stable files like .cvsignore files and the like. A new  
42    configuration option branch_fold enables imaging consequtive brances  - Implement selection of png compression level with image_compress and enable
43    with no commits in the same branch-box. This reduces images by a huge    interlacing (progressive load) for both png and jpeg images with
44    factor (28000x1700 -> 2100x2300, i.e. a factor of 10). It also speeds up    image_interlace.
   drawing considerably. The branch_fold option is *on* by default.  
   
 - Fix duplicate branch-boxes (branch_dupbox=true). No duplicates should be  
   created if there are no commits on a specific branch. There is no reason  
   for having two boxes on top of each other.  
   
 - Implement folding for all branches on the same branchpoint if empty. New  
   option branch_foldall controls this behavior. See cvsgraph.conf(5) for  
   details. The imagemap is configured to map all branches within the box.

 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.

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