Projects / ViewVC


ViewVC (formerly known as ViewCVS) is a Python/CGI-based system for viewing and interacting with Subversion and CVS repositories through your Web browser. It can browse directories, view changelogs, generate diffs, view arbitrary revisions, and display annotated ("blame") listings. It has full support for tags and branches, and contains a database-backed query system like Bonsai. It was initially based on the cvsweb work by Henner Zeller, but has been ported to Python and dramatically enhanced.

Recent releases

  •  14 Jan 2014 19:34

    Release Notes: This release contains fixes for some minor directory sorting bugs. The file display view now linkifies line numbers. When character set detection is enabled, ViewVC now requires the confidence level returned by the detection logic to be high in order to avoid errant character transcoding.

        Release Notes: This release comes right on the heels of ViewVC 1.1.19, delivering fixes to regressions which slipped into that release unnoticed (until too late).

        •  22 Apr 2013 19:49

          Release Notes: This release brings a number of incremental improvements in performance and file content handling over previous releases, including faster repository lookup, a new configuration option for capping the size of processed file contents, improvements in the detection and transcoded display of non-ASCII/UTF8 file contents, and several enhancements to the GNU tarball generation feature.

            Release Notes: This maintenance release offers a few minor improvements. First, it fixes a regression triggered in views of Berkeley-DB-based Subversion repositories. Secondly, it makes some improvements to the experimental rcsparse-based CVS repository parsing logic. Finally, it provide a few small features and robustness improvements in ViewVC's commits database feature and the tooling which surrounds it.
