[Files] CVS 1.11.2 AmigaOS Port update releasedANN.lu
Posted on 23-Jul-2002 00:03 GMT by Jens Langner
On the 22nd, the authors of the AmigaOS port(Olaf Barthel & Jens Langner) of CVS (Concurrent Versions System) released a new, updated version 1.11.2 of the development system. Beside the update to the newest cvs version, also some bugs in the ssh implementation were fixed.

So everyone interested can grab a new version from:
http://amcvs.light-speed.de/ What is CVS ?

CVS is a version control system, which allows you to keep track of all of your files (usally source code), keep a log of who, when, and why changes occurred, etc., like RCS or SCCS. It handles multiple developers, multiple directories, triggers to enable/log/control various operations, and can work over a wide area network (i.e. internet). The following tasks are not included; they can be done in conjunction with CVS but will tend to require some script-writing and software other than CVS: bug-tracking, build management (that is, make and make-like tools), and automated testing. (Quoted from the CVS documentation)

About this port

The actual version of this port is called a `rough port` because it is lacking some features the original unix version or other ports have. On the other hand, however, you get everything, and perhaps more, you got with the previous Amiga ports of CVS because this port does not require `ixemul.library` to work and it does not require an RCS installation as it is completly self contained. The port also probably would win a price as the largest `pure` executable; it can be made resident.

Features implemented:

+ full cvs client (checkin/checkout)
+ TCP/IP support (for connecting to servers via TCP/IP)
+ SSH support for secure connections
+ no ixemul.library needed.
+ no RCS installation needed.
+ could be made resident (less memory+faster)
+ processor optimized versions [020/030/040/060]
- no server support (you can`t use an Amiga as a server)
- no file protection bits support
