CVSSearch searches for code fragments using CVS comments. Specifically, it takes advantage of the fact that a CVS comment describes the lines of code involved in the commit and that this description will typically hold for many future versions. In other words, CVSSearch allows you to better search the most recent version of the code by looking at previous versions to better understand the current version.

Release Notes: Konqueror is now supported. The homepage includes a KDE demo with 240 applications indexed. (Click 'Browse Database Contents' for the list.) Many bugs have been fixed, particularly in the GUI. You can now easily trace the origin of a line match by clicking the 'C' on its left to see the corresponding commit. CVSSearch should be quite usable now.
Release Notes: This version is a complete rewrite of CVSSearch, and should be easily installable, but requires CGI. It can search multiple CVS repositories and completely, and has a completely new GUI that makes CVS comment to source code mapping more explicit. There is a demo on the web page.
Release Notes: This is a preliminary demo for feedback; it includes some source.
