|Subject:||Upgrade to CVS 1.11?|
|Date:||Mon, 8 Jan 2001 12:58:59 -0800|
I am currently running a CVS 1.10.8 server on a Linux machine, with clients that are all Windows (95/98/NT/2000) machines. All of the Windows clients are also version 1.10.8, which I got quite some time ago in the form of a binary from the internet.
I am thinking about upgrading to CVS 1.11, but I am not sure if I can (or should) upgrade the server without also upgrading the clients. There does not yet appear to be a Windows binary of version 1.11 available anywhere that I can find, and the only binary I can find now (at cvshome.org) is 1.10.5, which is pretty doggone old (I can't even find 1.10.8 anymore -- what's up with that?). Lots of Unix clients are getting built on a regular basis and are available as binaries, so why aren't Windows clients also built and made available? I thought at least the major versions (like 1.11) were supposed to have Windows binaries built.
So I guess my questions are:
1) Should upgrade the server to 1.11 even if Windows clients are still 1.10.8?
2) Is there someplace where one can find a Windows binary of 1.11? If not, what sort of a build environment (and tools) are required to build one?
