20    - Work around CVSNT wrong keyword ordering breaking rcsfile(5) ordering
21  - You can now instruct CvsGraph to ommit all revisions that are not tagged. This

27    
 - 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.  
   
 - 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 :-)

107    - contrib/automatic_documentation:
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.
