Fedora Update Notification
2011-05-18 18:38:31

Name : viewvc
Product : Fedora 15
Version : 1.1.11
Release : 1.fc15
URL : http://www.viewvc.org/
Summary : Browser interface for CVS and SVN version control repositories
Description :
ViewVC is a browser interface for CVS and Subversion version control
repositories. It generates templatized HTML to present navigable directory,
revision, and change log listings. It can display specific versions of files
as well as diffs between those versions. Basically, ViewVC provides the bulk
of the report-like functionality you expect out of your version control tool,
but much more prettily than the average textual command-line program output.

Update Information:

* security fix: remove user-reachable override of cvsdb row limit
* fix broken standalone.py -c and -d options handling
* add --help option to standalone.py
* fix stack trace when asked to checkout a directory (issue #478)
* improve memory usage and speed of revision log markup (issue #477)
* fix broken annotation view in CVS keyword-bearing files (issue #479)
* warn users when query results are incomplete (issue #443)
* avoid parsing errors on RCS newphrases in the admin section (issue #483)
* make rlog parsing code more robust in certain error cases (issue #444)

* Wed May 18 2011 Bojan Smojver <bojan@rexursive.com> - 1.1.11-1
- bump up to 1.1.11
