I suppose you could put up a patched 1.11.18 version for windows if
Derek agrees it is a reasonable thing to do.

That is up to Derek, but I am guessing that releasing a 1.11.19 version
fairly soon makes the most sense.

There are a few issues outstanding with the 1.11.18 release that have
been reported so far:

   a) Missing files in the ditribution. Fixed in
      (Report from "Chris Bohn" <address@hidden>.)

   b) Windows bug in handle_m() and handle_e() that generates error no
      output. Fixed in
      (Report from "Conrad T. Pino" <address@hidden>.)

   c) A regression from an older version of cvs where we get an
      assertion failure in the following case:

        % rm -rf /tmp/testcvsroot
        % cvs -d :fork:/tmp/testcvsroot init
        % cvs -d :fork:/tmp/testcvsroot version
        Client: Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.11.18 (client/server)
        Server: Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.11.18 (client/server)
        % cvs -d :fork:/tmp/testcvsroot rtag testtag CVSROOT/modules
        % cvs -d :fork:/tmp/testcvsroot co -pr testtag CVSROOT/modules
        assertion "repository != NULL" failed: file "recurse.c", line 667
        cvs [checkout aborted]: received abort signal

      (Report from "John Elgin" <address@hidden>.)

   d) cvs 1.11.18 under MacOS X (10.3.6) sometimes generates a bus error
      during a call to tzset().

      My opinion is that 10.3.6 is just buggy and that users could work
      around the problem changing config.h to use #undef HAVE_TZSET, but
      I have not had opportunity to investigate any further.
      (Report from "Marius Schamschula" <address@hidden>.)

I don't have a fix for #c, but it would probably be a good idea to fix
it before we spin 1.11.19 if possible.
