Happy Birthday uberSVN!

uberSVN is one year old! It’s been a great first year for uberSVN, the open ALM platform for Apache Subversion. Not only has this unique, SVN-based product been awarded the Made in Sheffield mark and Business IT Innovation of the Year medal, but it’s received a positive response from the community, as well as some fantastic reviews by the IT media. To celebrate uberSVN turning one year old, we’ll be making an exciting announcement later this week – keep checking back for all the latest info! But for now, we’ll take a look back at everything that’s happened over the past twelve months.
