Hello everybody,

I am proud to release RevisionManager 1.1 as a release candidate. 
RevisionManager is a CVS frontend product for Zope. It brings the power 
of revision controlling to the ZODB.

Version 1.1 adds a great deal to the usability of the product. I admit 
that RevisionManager 1.0.X had a few design problems, especially when it 
came it large amounts of objects/files that were managed in a CVS 
module. So everybody who tried RevisionManager and abandoned it because 
of that might want to look into it again.

Here are the most important changes since 1.0.X:

* Instead of presenting long unhandy lists (unhandy even though some
   were batched), one can now walk through object trees, seeing only the
   information one wants to see.

* When running standard cvs actions on objects, one has to explicitly
   select the objects (or their parent folder) on which the action is
   supposed to work.

* RevisionManager now automatically recognizes if a module already
   exists or not.

* CVS variable expansion in the form of $...$ is now written back to the

RevisionManager has only been tested on Linux, but it should run on all
Unices. I have also heard that some people are trying to run it on 
Windows. If you should have success with this or might be able to supply 
patches, I would love to hear about it.
