CVS Suite 2009 R2. Now Available for Windows 10 and Red Hat Linux 7. Plus release plans for CVS Suite 2.8.02.

Released on August 15th, 2017 - CVS Suite 2009R2 is our recommended upgrade path for customers running mission critical CVSNT 2.5.0x or CVS Suite servers.

CVS Suite 2009 Build 6408 has been tested with all 32 bit platforms (including Windows 10/2012R2 x64 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 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 375 improvements since CVS Suite 2008 and over 770 improvements over the community releases of CVSNT, WinCVS, TortoiseCVS & WinMerge.

This release has been extensively tested with Windows 10, Windows 10 x64 and Windows Server 2012R2 plus Eclipse Oxygen, Visual Studio 2017 and many more operating systems and IDE's.

CVS Suite 2009R2 has been available since March 2011, however this is the first release recommended to customers running Windows 10 or Red Hat Linux 7. 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?
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). Software Maintenance and Support must be continuous from your initial license date - our sales team may be able to assist you with discounts on 'catch up' maintenance.

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 2 business days. 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.

Release Cycle Changes
We previously focused on releasing major updates, including announcing plans for CVS Suite 2.8.02 and 3.1.01. Customers have overwhelmingly told us that 'major' upgrades of this kind are difficult, and have urged us to reconsider a longer lifecycle for the product without major milestone upgrades. For this reason we have deliberately scaled back development of the major new releases in favour of incremental updates to the current release platform. However there is only so long that the current 2.8.01 codeline can be supported effectively - so we are continuing to advance the development and release of CVS Suite 2.8.02 and later codelines.
