1 kaz 1.3 Release Notes for Meta-CVS
2 kaz 1.1
3 kaz 1.23 Release 0.6, 2002-02-16:
4 kaz 1.19
5 kaz 1.21 The add operation was horribly broken in 0.5, it is fixed.
6    
7 kaz 1.19 User can interactively select whether to clobber local files or leave
8 kaz 1.20 everything alone. Effects on the mapping file of a mcvs move are undone,
9     if the restructuring is rolled back, or raises a condition that leads
10     to termination.
11 kaz 1.19
12 kaz 1.22 Meta-CVS now keeps a new meta-file called MCVS/TYPES. This is created
13     during import, and specifies the CVS keyword expansion mode for files
14     having given suffixes, and can also tell Meta-CVS to ignore certain files
15     when importing or adding.
16    
17 kaz 1.18 Release 0.5, 2002-02-10:
18 kaz 1.14
19 kaz 1.17 Much improved error handling. Filesystem rearranging code performs
20     sanity checks to prevent adds and moves from accidentally clobbering
21     local files. A rearranging gone bad can be rolled back. Effects
22     of a failed mcvs add can also be rolled back.
23 kaz 1.14
24 kaz 1.17 MAP-LOCAL is now sorted in the same way as MAP.
25 kaz 1.15
26 kaz 1.13 Release 0.4, 2002-02-04:
27 kaz 1.10
28     CVS is invoked using internal function resembling the xargs utility,
29     which ensures that multiple command lines are generated if necessary to
30     avoid surpassing the operating system limit on argument and environment
31     vector size. This is important when someone wants to diff or stat a
32     subdirectory, which requires Meta-CVS to pick out the individual files
33     at the CVS level.
34    
35 kaz 1.11 The tag, log, status and annotate commands are now available.
36    
37 kaz 1.12 The MAP file is sorted on F- file names now, not path names. This
38     improves merging, since files do not move within the file when
39     they are renamed.
40    
41 kaz 1.5 Release 0.3, 2002-02-02:
42    
43     Process termination done is properly in top level handler, by a nonlocal
44 kaz 1.8 exit. The program properly indicates failed termination when it exits
45     due to an error condition.
46    
47     Corrections are made in the command line option processing. If z is an
48     option that takes an argument, and the argument is -zx, then x is
49     treated as the argument to the option. Long options arguments are
50     recognized properly, according to the --opt=arg convention. The option
51     processing is restructured. Most of the commands now take the
52     appropriate cvs command-specific options.
53    
54     The update algorithm performs dupe checking over the map, which could
55     happen during a merge.
56    
57     Some more bugfixing has been done to the move command. It was still not
58     handling right some cases of an unversioned file being clobbered. Also,
59     it wasn't renaming a directory containing just one file.
60    
61 kaz 1.9 I did some performance investigation for larger file sets, and
62     ended up rewriting the code that computes filesystem restructuring
63     changes and map duplicates.
64 kaz 1.5
65 kaz 1.4 Release 0.2, 2002-01-30:
66    
67     Changed official name from MCVS to Meta-CVS. The move command now
68     performs some filesystem tests so it does the right thing when a versioned
69     file is moved over a non-versioned file, or when a file is moved into
70     a directory not known to Meta-CVS. Factored out reading and writing of
71     map files into functions.
72    
73 kaz 1.2 Release 0.1, 2002-01-28:
74    
75     Support for mcvs diff -u added. The -R option works for mcvs add command.
76     Bug fixed in mcvs mv command; it wasn't working analogously to the Unix
77     mv command when copying a directory to an existing directory.
78    
79     Release 0.0, 2002-01-27:
80 kaz 1.1
81     This is alpha software. It is not complete, and lacks documentation. However,
82     it is already usable in its present state and is being used for version control
83     by its author. If you can program in Common Lisp and would like to help, take
84     a look through the TODO file. Send me patches, ideas, feature requests.
