13  This version of CvsGraph includes more control over the graphical presentation  - The entire tree can now be drawn upside-down. This is usefull if you have
14  of the boxes drawn to show revisions and branches (notably background colors    many revisions in a trunk and want to see the latest first. The configuration

17      configured value.
18      The imagemap generation also supports this, so you will still be able to point
19      and shoot on and between the revisions.
20    
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
23      size. Note that the first and the last revision in a trunk never are hidden.
24      A new configuration option 'strip_untagged' with boolean argument enables this
25      feature. Alternatively, the command-line provides option '-s' wich negates the
26      value set in the configuration file.
27    
28    - The boxes to identify the branches can now be drawn on both sides of the trunk.
29      Configuration option 'branch_dupbox' with boolean argument activates this
30      feature, which is usefull when the tree is drawn upside-down.The command-line
31      option '-b' negated the configured value.
32    
33    - ViewCVS (http://viewcvs.sourceforge.net) is now officially supporting the use
34      of CvsGraph in their code as of version 0.8. So, no bad hacks needed anymore
35      to get it working, and it always looks nice :-)

51    NOTE:   The GD library is required for CvsGraph to function. Get it from
52            http://www.boutell.com, compile it and use either --with-gd-lib=DIR
53            and --with-gd-inc=DIR to specify its location. You might also have
54            to use --with-z-inc, --with-z-lib and --with-png-inc, --with-png-lib
55            for gd versions 1.6 and higher.
56            If you build with static libgd (i.e. libgd.a) and already have
57            libpng.so and/or libjpeg6b.so (i.e. dynamic), then you might want to
58            try to trick configure into adding these libs to the tests by adding
59            commandline options '--with-png-lib=.' and '--with-jpeg-lib=.'.
