Released on July 27th, 2011 - CVS Suite 2009R2 is our recommended upgrade path for customers running mission critical CVS Suite 2008 (or earlier) servers.

CVS Suite 2009 Build 4218 has been tested with all 32 bit platforms (including Windows 7/2008R2 x64 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES4/5 x64) and SuSE Enterprise Linux x64 and is available now from the customer area of the web site:

CVS Suite 2009R2
Extensively deployed and tested worldwide by our consulting team on a wide variety of servers and installations - CVS Suite 2009R2 has been through a tough QA process and includes over 180 improvements since CVS Suite 2008 and over 570 improvements over the community releases of CVSNT, WinCVS, TortoiseCVS & WinMerge.

This release has been extensively tested with Windows 7, Windows 7 x64 and Windows Server 2008R2 plus Eclipse Indigo, Visual Studio 2008 and many more operating systems and IDE's.

CVS Suite 2009 has been available since April 2010, however this is the first release recommended to customers upgrading mission critical systems running CVS Suite 2008, CVS Suite 2.5.03 or CVS Suite 2.5.02. You can simply install this new release, or contact our sales team for a quote for on site installation.

Support expired? No download in customer area?
If you purchased CVS Suite 2008 with a free upgrade to CVS Suite 2009 - that upgrade was in the customer downloads area from July 2010 onwards.

All customers can download the software they purchased for 120 days from the purchase date only. To get the latest updates, you need to purchase annual software maintenance and support (5 levels to choose from).

If you previously purchased annual maintenance and support, but it has has expired and you have not received an invoice for renewal, you can purchase online (support quantity must equal licensed quantity) and your download will be available within 48 hours. Alternatively you can email for a quote.

Download incomplete or slow?
With a major new release like this one, our servers can sometimes be a bit slow to provide downloads to thousands of customers at once. If your download fails, please retry later. If you are still having problems please e-mail us.

Delays in Release Cycle
During 2010 we had not been able to provide releases and fixes by our target dates. We understood the problem, and determined that it was solvable. In July 2010 we began a major restructure to centralise our development and get our release schedules on track.

Unfortunately due to technical issues in our range of products our development team struggled to balance the priorities. With the recent changes to our team and the release of CVS Suite 2009R2 we believe our release schedule is back on track.
