13  - The entire tree can now be drawn upside-down. This is usefull if you have  
14    many revisions in a trunk and want to see the latest first. The configuration  - Fix all numeric author ID

18    The imagemap generation also supports this, so you will still be able to point  - Fix incomplete parsing of access keyword in rcsfile
19    and shoot on and between the revisions.  
20    - Fix missing branch_bgcolor in manpage
21  - You can now instruct CvsGraph to ommit all revisions that are not tagged. This  
22    is highly usefull for very large trees/trunks to reduce the produced image  - Fix author names with spaces but not in @ encapsulation
23    size. Note that the first and the last revision in a trunk are not hidden.  
24    A new configuration option 'strip_untagged' with boolean argument enables this  - Added multiple merge_{from,to,color} matching. Now several regex

26    value set in the configuration file. You can also strip the first revision if  
27    it is untagged using '-S' and/or strip_first_rev.  - Added dynamic colors and strings for more flexibility in visual
28      representations of the tree.
29  - The boxes to identify the branches can now be drawn on both sides of the trunk.  
30    Configuration option 'branch_dupbox' with boolean argument activates this  - Added keyword rev_idtext to define the revision ID in a revision

34  - Configuration no longer requires a configuration file. All options can now be  - Fix dashed lines when stripped revisions have mergepoints attatched
   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.  
   
 - The branch tag color and font can now be set separately using branch_tag_*  
   configuration options.  
   
 - It is now possible to draw the connector lines between the boxes thicker  
   by setting thick_lines to something else than 1. Maximum thickness is  
   limited to lines of 11 pixels wide.

 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.

115    - contrib/automatic_documentation:
116      If you are interested in tag-management with respect to the correct branch
117      information, then I suggest that you take a look at the contribution from
118      Henrik Carlqvist. He submitted some server-side scripts that can manage tags
119      in a better fashion than cvs on its own.
