1 Release Notes for Meta-CVS
2
3 Release 0.9, 2002-03-??:
4
5 Bugfix: the .cvsignore file is now subject to tagging, status, etc,
6 (unless --nometa is specified, of course).
7
8 Release 0.8, 2002-03-13:
9
10 Bug fixed in mcvs add; it was not ignoring files that are already
11 listed as :ignore in MCVS/TYPES.
12
13 Bug fixed in mcvs move: a target with a trailing slash is now treated
14 as a directory (if it does not already exist and is a non-directory).
15
16 The -d option of mcvs checkout can now be used to override the checkout
17 directory, which is normally the same as the module name.
18
19 The global options --version, --help, -q, -Q and -e are now supported.
20
21 New global options --error-continue and --error-terminate to disable
22 interactive error handling in two different ways.
23
24 Log level of many messages has changed; many messages have been
25 relegated to debug level.
26
27 The import command now creates a .cvsignore file containing the name
28 MAP-LOCAL.
29
30 Release 0.7, 2002-03-09:
31
32 The import command collects a list of the file suffixes and brings up
33 a text editor to allow the user to edit their CVS keyword expansion
34 behavior. This information is kept in a new metafile called TYPES. The
35 add command also updates TYPES; it identifies any suffixes which are new,
36 and brings up an editor. The F- files now carry suffixes, which
37 simplifies interfacing with CVS, and also allows cvswrappers to work.
38
39 Recursive add works (mcvs add -R ...).
40
41 New command line option --nometa allows metafiles to be excluded from
42 diff, tag, and other commands; without the option they are inserted
43 into the list of files to be processed.
44
45 The commit option now takes an optional list of files or directories,
46 just like tag, diff, and others.
47
48 Release 0.6, 2002-02-16:
49
50 The add operation was horribly broken in 0.5, it is fixed.
51
52 User can interactively select whether to clobber local files or leave
53 everything alone. Effects on the mapping file of a mcvs move are undone,
54 if the restructuring is rolled back, or raises a condition that leads
55 to termination.
56
57 Meta-CVS now keeps a new meta-file called MCVS/TYPES. This is created
58 during import, and specifies the CVS keyword expansion mode for files
59 having given suffixes, and can also tell Meta-CVS to ignore certain files
60 when importing or adding.
61
62 Release 0.5, 2002-02-10:
63
64 Much improved error handling. Filesystem rearranging code performs
65 sanity checks to prevent adds and moves from accidentally clobbering
66 local files. A rearranging gone bad can be rolled back. Effects
67 of a failed mcvs add can also be rolled back.
68
69 MAP-LOCAL is now sorted in the same way as MAP.
70
71 Release 0.4, 2002-02-04:
72
73 CVS is invoked using internal function resembling the xargs utility,
74 which ensures that multiple command lines are generated if necessary to
75 avoid surpassing the operating system limit on argument and environment
76 vector size. This is important when someone wants to diff or stat a
77 subdirectory, which requires Meta-CVS to pick out the individual files
78 at the CVS level.
79
80 The tag, log, status and annotate commands are now available.
81
82 The MAP file is sorted on F- file names now, not path names. This
83 improves merging, since files do not move within the file when
84 they are renamed.
85
86 Release 0.3, 2002-02-02:
87
88 Process termination done is properly in top level handler, by a nonlocal
89 exit. The program properly indicates failed termination when it exits
90 due to an error condition.
91
92 Corrections are made in the command line option processing. If z is an
93 option that takes an argument, and the argument is -zx, then x is
94 treated as the argument to the option. Long options arguments are
95 recognized properly, according to the --opt=arg convention. The option
96 processing is restructured. Most of the commands now take the
97 appropriate cvs command-specific options.
98
99 The update algorithm performs dupe checking over the map, which could
100 happen during a merge.
101
102 Some more bugfixing has been done to the move command. It was still not
103 handling right some cases of an unversioned file being clobbered. Also,
104 it wasn't renaming a directory containing just one file.
105
106 I did some performance investigation for larger file sets, and
107 ended up rewriting the code that computes filesystem restructuring
108 changes and map duplicates.
109
110 Release 0.2, 2002-01-30:
111
112 Changed official name from MCVS to Meta-CVS. The move command now
113 performs some filesystem tests so it does the right thing when a versioned
114 file is moved over a non-versioned file, or when a file is moved into
115 a directory not known to Meta-CVS. Factored out reading and writing of
116 map files into functions.
117
118 Release 0.1, 2002-01-28:
119
120 Support for mcvs diff -u added. The -R option works for mcvs add command.
121 Bug fixed in mcvs mv command; it wasn't working analogously to the Unix
122 mv command when copying a directory to an existing directory.
123
124 Release 0.0, 2002-01-27:
125
126 This is alpha software. It is not complete, and lacks documentation.
127 However, it is already usable in its present state and is being used for
128 version control by its author. If you can program in Common Lisp and would
129 like to help, take a look through the TODO file. Send me patches, ideas,
130 feature requests.
