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 [http://www.kb.cert.org/vuls/id/238678 #238678] &
[http://www.kb.cert.org/vuls/id/680620 #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 [http://ftp.gnu.org/non-gnu/cvs/ GNU download
