CVS Monitor / News: Recent posts

Open Source, Open Slather

Hi folks, sorry for the long silence, and I'd like to apologise now to everybody who's had their bugs fixed in CVS only to not be able to get a usefully working CVS Monitor version with the fix in it.

To just brief you all on where things are at, unfortunately the corporate sponsor that was looking so much a lock at the time of the last news item pulled out, but not before I'd already gotten a significant portion of the way to 0.7.... read more

The Future of the Monitor: Upcoming Releases

Ladies and Gentlemen

It's been a while since the last release, and it's time to look at the future of CVS Monitor.

As I'm sure you are all aware by now, things move fairly slowly in the CVS Monitor world. It does everything I need, and I fix what I can when I can, to keep as many of you happy as possible.

The current stable release is 0.6.3, which contains as many patches and fixes as it was possible to leverage in, without having to deal with a total overhaul.... read more

CVS Monitor 0.6.3 beta 2

0.6.3 beta 2 is available. This is essentially a release candidate release, but the overhauled setup process requires a few dozen installations by various people to see if there is anything that has been missed.

If no bugs are reported over the coming 2-3 weeks, this will be rebadged as 0.6.3 final.

Recent GD Issues

Of late there have been a marked increase in people having problems with installation of the perl GD modules.

This appears to be due to an increase in the availability of GD2 in recent versions of major distros.

It is recommended that if you have any difficulties installing GD2, you should use the older GD 1.41.

The GD perl modules will work ONLY with perl 1.41, or GD 2.0.5 or greater. See the CVS Monitor 0.6 help page for more details.
