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

16    default value on the command-line with the '-u' switch, which will negate the  - Changed acceptable mail policy. See below in this file
17    configured value.  
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.  
   
 - You can now instruct CvsGraph to ommit all revisions that are not tagged. This  
   is highly usefull for very large trees/trunks to reduce the produced image  
   size. Note that the first and the last revision in a trunk never are hidden.  
   A new configuration option 'strip_untagged' with boolean argument enables this  
   feature. Alternatively, the command-line provides option '-s' wich negates the  
   value set in the configuration file.  
   
 - 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 :-)

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