  • Fixed CVS update bug introduced in 1.64. (issue 190)

  • Fixed a bug that occasionally prevents fingerprints from being displayed, when files are created outside Hudson.
  • Added a mechanism to perform form field validation remotely. The first one to use this is the subversion executable location field in the system configuration.

  • the value entered for the .cvspass field is now validated on the fly.
  • Added a link from the system config screen to check the cvs client program version, to assist trouble shooting.
