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.
