It should, although I have personally only tested with 1.6.4 from

Huh, I have no idea how "c" gets passed to --highlight or why the
/etc/cvsweb.conf stuff is in the error log.  Could you post unedited
snippets from the error log?  What web server do you run and on what

For context diffs, the value to --highlight should be "diff", "diffu"
for unified, and "diffs" for side by side diffs.

Hm.  What diff* files do you have in the enscript hl directory?
Could you try the most recent highlighting stuff available from the
enscript homepage above?  What about enscript-colored unified diffs, do
they work?  What about enscript-colorized source code (not diff) views?

Most likely not, looks like an enscript problem to me.  To isolate the
problem, I'd suggest (in addition to the above) running enscript from
the command line for unified, context and side by side diffs using
diffu, diff and diffs for values of --highlight respectively.

Let the list know how it goes, and thanks for testing the beta!
