CVS Support in IDEA versions > 807

One of the things that stopped me from using 809 was that local repositories were not supported.

I never saw anything about this topic after 809, so I ask, is a local repository supported in 813?

No they are not.
BTW, you can easily emulate local repository by installing locally a cvs server.

It's not that hard. Even I did it :)

Any tips on how to do this?

I'm asking because it's not the same as just creating a new one. I'll need to import my (current) local server.

Forgot to mention that I'm Windows XP.

An update:

I'm using CVSnt at this point. It runs a CVS server on my XP machine, and IDEA is (apparently) able to connect to it.

However, I can't seem to add files to it, nor is the CVS tab showing updated files..... is this a bug, or my own ignorance in how to use the new CVS changes?

You should be able to reuse the repository (as always: make a backup
before!), so you won't lose the files' history. You only need to
checkout the project, because the CVS\Root files need to start with
:pserver:. But you also can use a search'n'replace tool, that replaces
the CVS\Root file's content with the new one.
