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