Hello all!

Can anyone explain me how to get latest STABLE release of some package
from CVS? Manual says that i have to use tags. But all examples in it
contain tag's name, such as

cvs update -r Release-02

But what if i dont know this name? Can I find it somehow? Is there a
CVS command that lists all tag names?

Note that knowing all the tag names mat not help. You need to know whatever tagging system is in use in the project you are working on, and that tagging system needs to include a procedure for tagging the latest stable release. If both of these are true, only then can you use the previously mentioned commands to scan the tags and find your latest stable release.
