1                         Release Notes for Meta-CVS                         Release Notes for Meta-CVS
2    
3    Release 0.99, 2002-1?-??:
4    
5      New link command for creating symbolic links.
6    
7      Global option -n (dry run---don't modify filesystem) is processed
8      internally now, not just passed to CVS.
9    
10      Failure to invoke text editor is handled.
11    
12      The -r option of filt is fixed; it has been broken since the change to the
13      new MAP format, because it was reading the raw map representation, not
14      passing it through the right conversion steps that are needed now.
15    
16      Bugfix to purge and remap commands: they were fooled by CVS-generated
17      files in the MCVS/CVS directory. Specifically, files having F- names, and a
18      the suffix ,t.
19    
20      Bugfix to add logic in directory restructuring: there was the possibility
21      of mistakingly taking a clobbered local file to be a new local version of
22      the added file, instead of replacing it. This could happen if the local
23      file had a future timestamp relative to the one coming from the repository.
24    
25      The prop command does not synchronize or write out map if no options are
26      specified.
27    
28      Help text added for move and branch commands. Help text for grab rewritten.
29    
30      The CVSEDITOR and VISUAL environment variables are now checked, not
31      only EDITOR.
32    
33    Release 0.98, 2002-10-13:
34    
35      The prop command was mistakenly reading from MAP-LOCAL and writing to MAP,
36      which could cause information loss if the two differ. It now reads from MAP
37      and writes to MAP. (The property changes propagate to MAP-LOCAL by the
38      update operation invoked by prop, as before).
39    
40      Invocation of external programs included in debug trace.
41    
42      The filt command does not filter F- names if they are immediately preceded by
43      the MCVS/ prefix; such occurences are clearly concrete, sandbox-relative
44      references to the actual F- links, rather than abstract references.
45    
46      The update command now supports the -C option, to fetch the repository
47      copy, throwing away local changes. It also now honors the --metaonly
48      and --nometa options.
49    
50      The export command has been added, for checking out documents without creating
51      a working copy (no MCVS directory in the root of the checkout).
52    
53      The watch command has been added. Note that its syntax differs from that
54      of CVS.
55    
56      The watchers, editors, edit, and unedit commands have been added.
57    
58      A script called mcvs-upgrade is now included, and installs alongside the mcvs
59      script.  This allows the Meta-CVS Lisp image to recompile and patch itself,
60      giving users of binary distributions an easy way to upgrade from source
61      code.
62    
63  Release 0.97, 2002-10-06:  Release 0.97, 2002-10-06:
