Projects / CVSNT


CVSNT was started as a port of cvs pserver for NT. It has since been greatly improved and is now available under Windows, Unix/Linux, and Mac OS X. Authentication may be done via all standard CVS protocols, plus Windows-specific SSPI and Active Directory. Secure transport support is implemented via sserver or encrypted SSPI. The NT version is fully integrated with the Win32 system. MergePoint processing means no more tagging to merge. Atomic checkouts mean you always get the files you wanted.

      Release Notes: The latest version is validated against the eclipse testsuite, so all the major functionality of eclipse should now work. Fine grained compatibility flags have been added, so you can make legacy clients see a different view of the server than CVSNT capable clients.

        Release Notes: Repository prefixes are replaced by repository aliases (all your repositories should be upgraded automatically on installation to the new format).

          Release Notes: An option to pretend to be a Unix CVS server was added. When used with the repository prefix, this improves compatibility with WSAD and Eclipse. Extra unicode encodings are now available. All combinations of UCS2/UTF16 with/without BOM are now catered for. Security fixes were made, and modules2 support was added for more flexible modules, and paving the way for true rename in future releases.
