Sick and tired of that using that buggy source control software that
cost you hundreds of dollars...per developer?  Want a UI with menus
and file lists?  Are you X-Windows adverse?  CVS is fast and full of
great features, but it has one of those boring command-line
interfaces.

If this is a familiar saw, perhaps CurVeS is for you.  This release is
(still) for GNU/Linux and POSIX only, but work is under way for making
it available for DOS/Windows, Windows95 and Windows/NT.

This is an ALPHA release which means that it is being distributed with
the intention of gathering feedback from potential users.  While there
are many features missing from the planned v1.0, this version
implements a useful subset.

Feature Hype List:

  o Color coded (where available) directory listing that highlights
    edited files, new files, and other source control attributes.
  o Automatically sense binary format files when adding to a project.
  o Oh, there must be something else that is flashy...well, this is
    only an ALPHA release.
  o AutoConf script for building on UN*X systems.
  o Custom termcap/terminfo interpreter.  Tested with Linux console,
    and Xterm.  
  o Nothing else to install.  CurVeS works from the console, in a
    telnet session, or in an XTerm.
