Cervisia is a graphical front end for Concurrent Versions System (CVS).[3]

Cervisia implements the common CVS functions of adding, removing, and committing files.[4][5] More advanced capabilities include importing and checking-out modules, adding/removing watches, editing/unediting and locking/unlocking files, blame-annotated file viewing, tagging/branching, conflict resolution/mergings and the ability to update to a given tag or branch. Additionally, it has graphical functions that include tree and list views of the change log of a file, color-coded file status, and graphical diff'ing between versions, similar to xdiff.

Cervisia started to be updated to Qt 5 and KDE Frameworks 5 in November 2015.[6] The porting ended in June 2016[7]
