 - 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
23  - Implemented HTMLizing of expansion with %(...%). This prevents a possible  
24    cross site scripting exploit when you use '<', '>' or '"' in tagnames.  - Fix mergepoint1 syntax used by CVSNT allowing revision numbers as argument
25    This is a remote chance (you must be stupid to use these characters in a  
26    tagname) but anyway, your system can be under attack.  - Fix merge lines to untagged revisions when strip_untagged is active

 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 However, the scripts are no longer maintained because ViewCVS has  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.

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