cvsgraph has been updated to 1.2.0. From the changelog:

* The entire tree can now be drawn upside-down. This is usefull if you have many revisions in a trunk and want to see the latest first. The configuration includes an option 'upside_down' with a boolean argument. You can override the default value on the command-line with the '-u' switch, which will negate the configured value. The imagemap generation also supports this, so you will still be able to point and shoot on and between the revisions. 

* You can now instruct CvsGraph to ommit all revisions that are not tagged. This is highly usefull for very large trees/trunks to reduce the produced image size. Note that the first and the last revision in a trunk are not hidden. A new configuration option 'strip_untagged' with boolean argument enables this feature. Alternatively, the command-line provides option '-s' wich negates the value set in the configuration file. You can also strip the first revision if it is untagged using '-S' and/or strip_first_rev. 

* The boxes to identify the branches can now be drawn on both sides of the trunk. Configuration option 'branch_dupbox' with boolean argument activates this feature, which is usefull when the tree is drawn upside-down.The command-line option '-b' negated the configured value. 

* Configuration no longer requires a configuration file. All options can now be entered on the commandline using '-O'. CvsGraph will still read the configuration file if one is avaliable, but it is no longer an error if none is found. 

* If no file is entered on the command-line, then the input is taken from standard input, like all decent *nix programs. 

* ViewCVS ( is now officially supporting the use of CvsGraph in their code as of version 0.8. So, no bad hacks needed anymore to get it working, and it always looks nice :-) 

* Implemented string drawing using freetype interface of libgd. It looks very nice, but it is significantly slower than gd's standard bitmap fonts. Extra configuration parameters *_ttfont and *_ttsize set font and size. Option use_ttf enables ttf rendering. Note that gd's bitmap fonts are used as a fallback in case where the ttfont contains errors or is not found. 

* The branch tag color and font can now be set separately using branch_tag_* configuration options. 

* It is now possible to draw the connector lines between the boxes thicker by setting thick_lines to something else than 1. Maximum thickness is limited to lines of 11 pixels wide. 

* Transparent backgrounds can now be generated by setting transparent_bg option to true in the configuration.
