Latest CVS snapshot
knocker, like many other open source
projects, uses CVS (Concurrent Version
System) to keep track of source code.
Unlike the current release, the CVS
version of the sources contains
everything written to this date, and it
can change daily (or even hourly). As a
result, the CVS version will have more
features and bug fixes than the release,
but also it may be somewhat less stable.
The CVS snapshots are provided as a
convenience only. Of course, you could
also get the same information using CVS
itself. Some of the benefits of using CVS
directly are: you can get any release or
version, view the log messages that say
what files were changed, and make patches
very easily with "cvs diff -u".
