1 kaz 1.3 Release Notes for Meta-CVS
2 kaz 1.1
3 kaz 1.28 Release 0.8, 2002-03-??:
4    
5 kaz 1.29 Bug fixed in mcvs add; it was not ignoring files that are already
6     listed as :ignore in MCVS/TYPES.
7    
8 kaz 1.30 The -d option of mcvs checkout can now be used to override the checkout
9     directory, which is normally the same as the module name.
10    
11 kaz 1.31 The global options --version, --help, -q, -Q and -e are now supported.
12    
13 kaz 1.24 Release 0.7, 2002-03-09:
14    
15 kaz 1.27 The import command collects a list of the file suffixes and brings up
16     a text editor to allow the user to edit their CVS keyword expansion
17     behavior. This information is kept in a new metafile called TYPES. The
18     add command also updates TYPES; it identifies any suffixes which are new,
19     and brings up an editor. The F- files now carry suffixes, which
20     simplifies interfacing with CVS, and also allows cvswrappers to work.
21    
22     Recursive add works (mcvs add -R ...).
23    
24     New command line option --nometa allows metafiles to be excluded from
25     diff, tag, and other commands; without the option they are inserted
26     into the list of files to be processed.
27 kaz 1.25
28 kaz 1.27 The commit option now takes an optional list of files or directories,
29     just like tag, diff, and others.
30 kaz 1.26
31 kaz 1.23 Release 0.6, 2002-02-16:
32 kaz 1.19
33 kaz 1.27 The add operation was horribly broken in 0.5, it is fixed.
34 kaz 1.21
35 kaz 1.27 User can interactively select whether to clobber local files or leave
36     everything alone. Effects on the mapping file of a mcvs move are undone,
37     if the restructuring is rolled back, or raises a condition that leads
38     to termination.
39    
40     Meta-CVS now keeps a new meta-file called MCVS/TYPES. This is created
41     during import, and specifies the CVS keyword expansion mode for files
42     having given suffixes, and can also tell Meta-CVS to ignore certain files
43     when importing or adding.
44 kaz 1.22
45 kaz 1.18 Release 0.5, 2002-02-10:
46 kaz 1.14
47 kaz 1.27 Much improved error handling. Filesystem rearranging code performs
48     sanity checks to prevent adds and moves from accidentally clobbering
49     local files. A rearranging gone bad can be rolled back. Effects
50     of a failed mcvs add can also be rolled back.
51 kaz 1.14
52 kaz 1.27 MAP-LOCAL is now sorted in the same way as MAP.
53 kaz 1.15
54 kaz 1.13 Release 0.4, 2002-02-04:
55 kaz 1.10
56 kaz 1.27 CVS is invoked using internal function resembling the xargs utility,
57     which ensures that multiple command lines are generated if necessary to
58     avoid surpassing the operating system limit on argument and environment
59     vector size. This is important when someone wants to diff or stat a
60     subdirectory, which requires Meta-CVS to pick out the individual files
61     at the CVS level.
62    
63     The tag, log, status and annotate commands are now available.
64    
65     The MAP file is sorted on F- file names now, not path names. This
66     improves merging, since files do not move within the file when
67     they are renamed.
68 kaz 1.12
69 kaz 1.5 Release 0.3, 2002-02-02:
70    
71 kaz 1.27 Process termination done is properly in top level handler, by a nonlocal
72     exit. The program properly indicates failed termination when it exits
73     due to an error condition.
74    
75     Corrections are made in the command line option processing. If z is an
76     option that takes an argument, and the argument is -zx, then x is
77     treated as the argument to the option. Long options arguments are
78     recognized properly, according to the --opt=arg convention. The option
79     processing is restructured. Most of the commands now take the
80     appropriate cvs command-specific options.
81    
82     The update algorithm performs dupe checking over the map, which could
83     happen during a merge.
84    
85     Some more bugfixing has been done to the move command. It was still not
86     handling right some cases of an unversioned file being clobbered. Also,
87     it wasn't renaming a directory containing just one file.
88    
89     I did some performance investigation for larger file sets, and
90     ended up rewriting the code that computes filesystem restructuring
91     changes and map duplicates.
92 kaz 1.5
93 kaz 1.4 Release 0.2, 2002-01-30:
94    
95 kaz 1.27 Changed official name from MCVS to Meta-CVS. The move command now
96     performs some filesystem tests so it does the right thing when a versioned
97     file is moved over a non-versioned file, or when a file is moved into
98     a directory not known to Meta-CVS. Factored out reading and writing of
99     map files into functions.
100 kaz 1.4
101 kaz 1.2 Release 0.1, 2002-01-28:
102    
103 kaz 1.27 Support for mcvs diff -u added. The -R option works for mcvs add command.
104     Bug fixed in mcvs mv command; it wasn't working analogously to the Unix
105     mv command when copying a directory to an existing directory.
106 kaz 1.2
107     Release 0.0, 2002-01-27:
108 kaz 1.1
109 kaz 1.27 This is alpha software. It is not complete, and lacks documentation.
110     However, it is already usable in its present state and is being used for
111     version control by its author. If you can program in Common Lisp and would
112     like to help, take a look through the TODO file. Send me patches, ideas,
113     feature requests.
