1 Release Notes for Meta-CVS
2
3 Release 0.11, 2002-04-12:
4
5 Bugfix: when branch invokes rtag, it now takes the CVSROOT information
6 from CVS/Root and passes it via -d. This is necessary because rtag does not
7 look at a local CVS subdirectory for this information, only the
8 -d option or the environment variable.
9
10 Command for listing branches added (list-branches or lb). Also shows
11 what sticky tag the sandbox is updated to.
12
13 Command for switching branches added (switch or sw).
14
15 Merge detects that working copy is on non-branch tag and bails.
16
17 Absolute paths can now be specified as file arguments. These are
18 based from the root directory of the sandbox, not the actual filesystem root
19 directory.
20
21 Release 0.10, 2002-04-03:
22
23 Automatic merging implemented. Branch is created using branch command,
24 and merging from another branch is done using simple merge command.
25 Meta-CVS maintains the tags to keep track of what has been merged
26 from what branch to what branch.
27
28 Bugfix: checkout -d foo bar was complaining about directory bar already
29 existing, even though it should only care about foo.
30
31 The remove command now requires explicit -R option to recursively remove
32 a directory. It has more detailed error reporting.
33
34 The move command has better error reporting.
35
36 Release 0.9, 2002-03-14:
37
38 Bugfix: the .cvsignore file is now subject to tagging, status, etc,
39 (unless --nometa is specified, of course).
40
41 The mcvs filt command takes -r <revision> or -D <date> parameters.
42 This means to retrieve the MAP file as of the specified revision or
43 date and use that mapping to perform the filtering translation,
44 rather than using MAP-LOCAL.
45
46 The mcvs update command takes filename arguments now and also
47 supports the -p option.
48
49 Release 0.8, 2002-03-13:
50
51 Bug fixed in mcvs add; it was not ignoring files that are already
52 listed as :ignore in MCVS/TYPES.
53
54 Bug fixed in mcvs move: a target with a trailing slash is now treated
55 as a directory (if it does not already exist and is a non-directory).
56
57 The -d option of mcvs checkout can now be used to override the checkout
58 directory, which is normally the same as the module name.
59
60 The global options --version, --help, -q, -Q and -e are now supported.
61
62 New global options --error-continue and --error-terminate to disable
63 interactive error handling in two different ways.
64
65 Log level of many messages has changed; many messages have been
66 relegated to debug level.
67
68 The import command now creates a .cvsignore file containing the name
69 MAP-LOCAL.
70
71 Release 0.7, 2002-03-09:
72
73 The import command collects a list of the file suffixes and brings up
74 a text editor to allow the user to edit their CVS keyword expansion
75 behavior. This information is kept in a new metafile called TYPES. The
76 add command also updates TYPES; it identifies any suffixes which are new,
77 and brings up an editor. The F- files now carry suffixes, which
78 simplifies interfacing with CVS, and also allows cvswrappers to work.
79
80 Recursive add works (mcvs add -R ...).
81
82 New command line option --nometa allows metafiles to be excluded from
83 diff, tag, and other commands; without the option they are inserted
84 into the list of files to be processed.
85
86 The commit option now takes an optional list of files or directories,
87 just like tag, diff, and others.
88
89 Release 0.6, 2002-02-16:
90
91 The add operation was horribly broken in 0.5, it is fixed.
92
93 User can interactively select whether to clobber local files or leave
94 everything alone. Effects on the mapping file of a mcvs move are undone,
95 if the restructuring is rolled back, or raises a condition that leads
96 to termination.
97
98 Meta-CVS now keeps a new meta-file called MCVS/TYPES. This is created
99 during import, and specifies the CVS keyword expansion mode for files
100 having given suffixes, and can also tell Meta-CVS to ignore certain files
101 when importing or adding.
102
103 Release 0.5, 2002-02-10:
104
105 Much improved error handling. Filesystem rearranging code performs
106 sanity checks to prevent adds and moves from accidentally clobbering
107 local files. A rearranging gone bad can be rolled back. Effects
108 of a failed mcvs add can also be rolled back.
109
110 MAP-LOCAL is now sorted in the same way as MAP.
111
112 Release 0.4, 2002-02-04:
113
114 CVS is invoked using internal function resembling the xargs utility,
115 which ensures that multiple command lines are generated if necessary to
116 avoid surpassing the operating system limit on argument and environment
117 vector size. This is important when someone wants to diff or stat a
118 subdirectory, which requires Meta-CVS to pick out the individual files
119 at the CVS level.
120
121 The tag, log, status and annotate commands are now available.
122
123 The MAP file is sorted on F- file names now, not path names. This
124 improves merging, since files do not move within the file when
125 they are renamed.
126
127 Release 0.3, 2002-02-02:
128
129 Process termination done is properly in top level handler, by a nonlocal
130 exit. The program properly indicates failed termination when it exits
131 due to an error condition.
132
133 Corrections are made in the command line option processing. If z is an
134 option that takes an argument, and the argument is -zx, then x is
135 treated as the argument to the option. Long options arguments are
136 recognized properly, according to the --opt=arg convention. The option
137 processing is restructured. Most of the commands now take the
138 appropriate cvs command-specific options.
139
140 The update algorithm performs dupe checking over the map, which could
141 happen during a merge.
142
143 Some more bugfixing has been done to the move command. It was still not
144 handling right some cases of an unversioned file being clobbered. Also,
145 it wasn't renaming a directory containing just one file.
146
147 I did some performance investigation for larger file sets, and
148 ended up rewriting the code that computes filesystem restructuring
149 changes and map duplicates.
150
151 Release 0.2, 2002-01-30:
152
153 Changed official name from MCVS to Meta-CVS. The move command now
154 performs some filesystem tests so it does the right thing when a versioned
155 file is moved over a non-versioned file, or when a file is moved into
156 a directory not known to Meta-CVS. Factored out reading and writing of
157 map files into functions.
158
159 Release 0.1, 2002-01-28:
160
161 Support for mcvs diff -u added. The -R option works for mcvs add command.
162 Bug fixed in mcvs mv command; it wasn't working analogously to the Unix
163 mv command when copying a directory to an existing directory.
164
165 Release 0.0, 2002-01-27:
166
167 This is alpha software. It is not complete, and lacks documentation.
168 However, it is already usable in its present state and is being used for
169 version control by its author. If you can program in Common Lisp and would
170 like to help, take a look through the TODO file. Send me patches, ideas,
171 feature requests.
