1This is a list of the most important changes between 2.x versions. It is by
2no means complete, listing only user-visible changes which are interesting.
3The ultimate way to know what has changed is to run diff, or even neater,
4ask CVS about it:
5
6  * Checkout the archive (see doc/cvs for how you can do this)
7  * Determine which tags are valid, by running this command from the
8    project root directory:
9      cvs status -v -l Makefile
10    Valid tags are usually like form V2-1-0 for version 2.1.0
11  * Ask cvs for the difference between two versions:
12      cvs diff -r TAG1 -r TAG2 DIFF-OPTIONS
13    for example:
14      cvs diff -r V2-0-0 -r V2-0-1 -u
