CVS Feature Version 1.12.13 Released! * Security Update *

Item posted by Derek Robert Price <dprice> on Wed 28 Sep 2005 03:29:30 PM UTC.

Feature CVS 1.12.13 has been released.  Feature releases contain new features as well as all the bug fixes from the stable releases.  This version fixes two security vulnerabilities in the zlib compression libraries (see CERT vulnerabilities advisories #238678 & #680620 for more info), several issues involving potential data-loss on heavily loaded systems, some minor potential crashes, hangs, and several minor annoyances in CVS client and server behavior.

This release also adds a handful of new features, mostly providing expanded server configurability, but including repair of a major Windows client issue that has prevented the Windows client from accessing remote repositories for several feature releases and fixes for some minor cvs watch bugs.

We recommend this upgrade for all CVS clients and servers already running the feature release and for those who simply like to stay on the cutting edge!

Please take a look at the NEWS file from the CVS source distribution for more information about the changes contained in this release.

CVS can be downloaded from GNU download server within four hours of this announcement or one of the mirrors after 24 hours or so (make sure to check the '''non-gnu''' directory on the mirrors).  (This release may be obtained from Savannah download server prior to appearing on the GNU download server, but please don't use the already heavily loaded Savannah download server unless you have to.)  For other ways to obtain CVS, please read How to get GNU Software.
