WinCvs Releases

WinCvs releases come in three flavours:
  • Development Builds are the most up-to-date releases with the biggest feature-set and highest number of fixed known issues. They are also the least tested and most experimental builds so they might introduce major yet unknown issues. You should not use these builds in a production environment.
  • Recommended Builds are what becomes of the development builds if no serious issues get reported against them for a reasonable amount of time. These are reportedly stable and thus recommended for novice users and critical environments.
  • Milestone Builds are considered "feature-complete" and sufficiently stable but no more active development will be done on them unless major issues crop up before the next development builds have suffciently stabilized again. Until this point Milestones will also be the Recommended builds.

    Latest Recommended Release: WinCvs (released 2005-08-15)
    [Download Installer] [Download "Bare" Installer] [Release Notes] [Download Source]
    Note: The "Bare" installer is a stripped-down installer without the CVSNT binaries. You could use this if you have already installed CVSNT or want to download and install it separately.
    Latest Development Release: WinCvs 2.0.9 (released 2007-01-30)
    [Download Installer] [Release Notes] [Download Source]
    Note: The "Bare" installer is no longer supported.
    Latest Milestone Release: WinCvs (released 2005-08-15)
    [Download Installer] [Download "Bare" Installer] [Release Notes] [Download Source]
    Note: The "Bare" installer is a stripped-down installer without the CVSNT binaries. You could use this if you have already installed CVSNT or want to download and install it separately.

WinCvs Supplementals

WinCvs depends on several third-party software packages, most of them optional, which you might have to download separately:
  • CVSNT is required by WinCvs 1.3 and later for basic CVS functionality. The latest stable CVSNT binaries at the time of release are already included in the WinCvs installer. It is sometimes recommended to update these independently of WinCvs if any critical bugs get fixed in CVSNT before WinCvs has released another Recommended Build.
  • Python is used by WinCvs 1.3.5 and later for scripting support (i.e. Macros). This is completely optional. The minimum requirement if you do want to use it is Python 2.1 but a few macros won't run without Python 2.2 or later. Other macros might require the Win32 extensions for Python which you could get either standalone or as part of the ActivePython distribution.
  • TCL is used by WinCvs for scripting support and the console shell. It is also completely optional. If you are using WinCvs 1.3.11 or later with Python 2.2 or later you don't need it at all as in that case WinCvs will just use the TCL binaries that already come with the standard Python distribution. (Note: if you're having trouble with TCL and WinCvs 1.2 take a look at this FAQ item)
