    Are there any GUI's for cvs that are current? So far I have been using the command line but would also like a GUI at least for diffs, logs, etc. The only ones that I can find are very old and/or sorely lacking in functionality. I used WinCVS under Windows XP, and liked that pretty well. There is a Mac version of it called MacCVS, but I can't get any of the builds to run under Leopard. I have tried Mac CVS Pro, but cannot get it to conenct to my repository (ssh2). I have tried MacCVSClient, but it is severely lacking IMO; if I check out one file into a sandbox, it cannot add another file to the same sandbox even from the same module (I did this all the time in WinCVS). Any suggestions?

    Eclipse has pretty good CVS support built in - but probably not the answer you were looking for.

    Otherwise, you could try SmartCVS or CrossVC - I haven't tried either.

    You can always use TkCVS (it's what I use at work under Linux).

    A version is availble for Mac OS X (not sure if it's still X11 or Aqua).

    As hard as I might try, I cannot 'get into' Eclipse. However I'll give TkCVS a try; I didn't know there was a Mac version of it. Thanks for the tip.
