   might be present. The old method would generate a corrupt image.  
   New configuration options include msg_color and msg_font to control the looks  
   of it. Messages are always printed at the bottom of the image.  
22    
23  - Fixed a bug in the folding code where subtrees would not fold correctly.  - Add configuration option 'merge_on_tag' to force the left_right case to
24      display merge lines on the tags instead of on the top/bottom sides. This
25      also solves imagemap overlaps where multiple sources or destinations would

 ----------  
   
 - The timezone variable does not seem to exist on Mac OSX. I have no clue how  
   to patch this yet.  
   Anyhow, the timezone problem is much worse, because it needs to be calculated  
   from the revision's commit-time and not the current timezone (Daylight saving  
   must be accounted for at commit's time, not current).

 NOTE:   The GD library is required for CvsGraph to function. Get it from  
         http://www.boutell.com, compile it and use either --with-gd-lib=DIR  
         and --with-gd-inc=DIR to specify its location. You might also have  
         to use --with-z-inc, --with-z-lib and --with-png-inc, --with-png-lib  
         for gd versions 1.6 and higher.  
         If you build with static libgd (i.e. libgd.a) and already have  
         libpng.so and/or libjpeg6b.so (i.e. dynamic), then you might want to  
         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.

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