Cervisia 1.0 and 1.1 released

Cervisia, an advanced graphical frontend for CVS, has finally been released as a 1.0 version. This release compiles either with KDE1 or KDE2 and contains complete documentation. Also available now is the 1.1 release, which contains a pile of new features and usability enhancements. Read on for a few highlights.

Cervisia features include:

  • A file tree in which files are marked with different colors depending on their status
  • A Bonsai-like blame-annotation view
  • A graphical revision tree
  • A graphical diff tool
  • A ChangeLog editor coupled with a dialog for committing files
  • A dialog for resolving conflicts

Screenshots, sources, documentation and a mailing list can be found on Cervisia's homepage.

Comments

Will Cervisia be included in the KDE 2.1 distro? I use cvs for the project Im on, but only use the CLI, Cervisia looks nice, hope it gets included :)

It's too late for 2.1, but you might well see it in KDE 2.2.

Eek.. One of the things that KDE needs to do is reduce the stuff in CVS and ship less apps as part of the various packages..

This fits in nicely with Kdevelop and would be really nice if you could open a new project and use a cvs server to store it / open existing cvs tree. This new app should be able to work in conjunction with kdevelop seemlessly but of course also remain standalone as it's a killer app on its own.

KDevelop 3.0 will be modularized so it would be no problem to replace the built-in cvs functions with acervisia module.

3.0 ? You guys are already thinking of 3.0 while 1.4 is merely out? Did I miss something? When is that supposed to happen?

According to the current roadmap it is planned to
release KDevelop 2.0 (an improved 1.4) with KDE 2.2.

KDevelop 3.0 will become a rewrite from scratch
(this is what you get if you check out HEAD
of the kdevelop module in the CVS).

So you basically missed nothing as KDE 3.0 is surely a long term issue and will be delayed as long as possible as it will break binary complatiblity (as the major number implies)

KEWL! this is good... for those who want to "stay on the bleeding edge" but who are essentially not-in-the-know :) Keep up! Esay tools for advanced things is A Major Factor(TM) when it comes to choosing what desktop (OS?) to use!!! /kidcat
