CVSNT 2.5.03.2260 (“Scorpio” SP1 stable) Inno Installer for Win32 ready for download

Posted by tier777 on 2006-03-10

Here’s the final 2.5.03 release. According to Tony there will be a 2.5.04 release soon but it will likely include no changes to the open source portions of CVSNT. From now on all work is focused on the new 2.6 line with full database backend.

cvsnt-2.5.3.2260-setup.zip (3.706 KB)

Note that this installer is not yet 64bit-enabled (whereas the original MSI installer is) as I did not have time yet to look into the requirements for making it so (not to mention that I am lacking the test environment). I will update this entry (or post a new one) once I have gotten round to that.

See my previous announcement for a short summary of what’s different with regards to the official MSI installer. I also took the opportunity to add a “Server only installation” install type in addition to the “Client only installation” one I added some releases ago which is also not available in the MSI installer. I have included the install source script for InnoSetup 5.1.6 inside the download archive as well this time .

>>> Official Release Notes <<<

If you intend to use this build as a client binary for WinCvs, make sure you read my notes accompanying the original 2.5.03 release as unfortunately a minor incompatibility has crept in at that point. Said entry also describes the workaround.

Cheers,

Oliver

CVSNT 2.5.03.2238 (“Scorpio” SP1 Release Candidate) Inno Installer ready for download

Posted by tier777 on 2006-02-09

Here’s another one:

cvsnt-2.5.3.2238-setup.zip (3.704 KB)

See my previous announcement for a short summary of what’s different with regards to the official MSI installer. I also took the opportunity to add a “Server only installation” install type in addition to the “Client only installation” one I added some releases ago which is also not available in the MSI installer.

CVSNT 2.5.03.2151 (“Scorpio” Stable Release) Inno Installer ready for download

Posted by tier777 on 2005-11-15

Here it is at last:

cvsnt-2.5.3.2151-setup.zip (3.398 KB)

See my previous announcement for a short summary of what’s different with regards to the official MSI installer. Note that some releases ago I also added a new install type labelled “Client only installation” which is also not available in the MSI installer. Here’s the install source script for InnoSetup 5.1.5 .

>>> Official Release Notes <<<

Note that this new release is somewhat incompatible with WinCvs’ CVSROOT wizard as it no longer advertises hostname and username as valid keywords (though they still are). Therefore with this release you would have to manually prepend username (if necessary) and hostname (required) to the field labelled “Repository Path”:

CVSNT 2.5.03.2132 (“Scorpio” Release Candidate) Inno Installer ready for download

Posted by tier777 on 2005-10-26

Here it is:

cvsnt-2.5.3.2132-setup.zip (3.335 KB)

See my previous announcements for a short summary of what’s different with regards to the official MSI installer.

This one has a client-side goodie that will be immediately useful to WinCvs users. You could now browse non-CVSNT repositories like the ones on sourceforge.net or mozilla.org right from within the Checkout dialog in WinCvs just like you already could with CVSNT repositories.

From the official release notes:

CVSNT 2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2132

Getting
ready for 2.5.03 release (this is mostly suite changes so the cvsnt
builds don’t really change a whole lot, hence the short release sycle).

* Add MSDE/SQLServer direct connection
* Add buttons in audit config to test connection and run setup script
* Fix rcsfile/audit problem
* cvs ls can now do a limited ls client side simulation if the remote
server doesn’t support it. Only names and directory status, no
recursion… enough to put a frontend on it.

Cheers,

Oliver

CVSNT 2.5.02.2115 (“Servalan SP2”) Inno Installer ready for download

Posted by tier777 on 2005-10-09

Here it is:

cvsnt-2.5.2.2115-setup.zip (3.373  KB)

For anyone that has not been watching the relevant threads on the CVSNT newsgroup, here’s again a short summary of what’s different with regards to the official MSI installer:

  • Lets you choose the location of the Temp dir, create it if necessary
    and make sure it has the appropriate permissions set (i.e. full access
    to authenticated users).
  • Attempts to stop the cvsagent process before trying to overwrite it.
  • Offers to start cvsagent at the end of the installation process.
  • Built with InnoSetup  5.1.5 (installer  source – 18  KB – includes fix for CPL startup directory)

From the official release notes:

CVSNT 2.5.02 (Servalan) Build 2115

Final 2.5.02 SP, containing all fixes since last stable release.

Changes since build 2099:

* Fixes for japanese filenames

Cheers,

Oliver

This is essentially SP1 unless something else crops up – just waiting for some other stuff to happen before it becomes officially stable.
