 - Fix warnings in readconf on some 'older' compiler systems.  
13    
14  - Implement new option to generate proper maps for different levels of HTML.  - Fix merge line links after redoing part of merge lines
   The option -x[34x] determines HTML 3.x (default), HTML 4.x or XHTML style  
   maps.  
   
 - Implement a scheme to visualize merges based on tag names. If tags are  
   consistently named at the mergepoint and the destination, then these points  
   can be detected using regular expressions. Several new configuration  
   options, merge_*, describe the tags.  
   
 - 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.  
15    
16  - Fixed backing up in the lexer. This improves speed slightly because no  - Use automake
17    rule requires lookahead over one character anymore.  
18    - Streamline the package with patches from the Fedora RPMS

         try to trick configure into adding these libs to the tests by adding  
         commandline options '--with-png-lib=.' and '--with-jpeg-lib=.'.  
         If you have linked libgd with freetype, then you might also need  
         either --with-freetype-lib or --with-freetype2-lib.

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 However, the scripts are no longer maintained because ViewCVS has  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

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