What is CVS?

The Radiance code is stored in a Concurent Versioning System (CVS). It is essentially a repository for code that keeps track of all changes and enables collaboration.

Anonymous CVS access

The Radiance source code history is now publicly available via anonymous CVS from the Labs server at:

:pserver:anonymous at

To build and use from the CVS version, you will need the auxiliary files.

The following versions (so far) are tagged:

  • rad5R3
  • rad5R2
  • rad5R1
  • rad5R0
  • rad4R2P2
  • rad4R2P1

  • rad3R9
  • rad3R8
  • rad3R7P2
  • rad3R7P1
  • rad3R6P1
  • rad3R6

To get a copy of the head version of Radiance, use:
