We’re very excited to announce that with the brand-new uberSVN ‘Chimney House’ release, our free, open ALM platform for Apache Subversion is now officially out of beta! Even better, this milestone comes just as uberSVN is turning one year old. This has been a fantastic twelve months for uberSVN, and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate uberSVN’s first birthday, than bringing our award winning product out of beta.
Not only does uberSVN move out of beta with the 12.04 release, but there’s plenty of new features and enhanced functionality to boot, including:
- New plugin API architecture and core upgrade that allows WANdisco registered plugins to work with uberSVN. We’re particularly excited about this one, as it lays the foundations for future uberSVN SDK releases.
- Subversion Access Control’s 4.1 LDAP functionality (apart from some advanced features linked directly to Access Control) has been integrated into uberSVN’s ‘Default LDAP’ tab (accessible through the ‘Administration’ section.) This is the feature uberSVN users have requested the most.
- A new file upload function has been added to the uberSVN Updates tab. This allows us to hand build updates for installations, push updates to users who aren’t connected to the internet, and deliver specialist packages to specific installations.
- A new option to subscribe to our Latest Release Channel or wait for us to deliver fixes highlighted by our early adopters in a Stable Release Channel. Set your preference within uberSVN.
- Plus, the usual list of bug fixes, including updates to the activity feed posts.
Continuing our tradition of codenaming our releases after local venues in Sheffield, UK, we’re pleased to announce that uberSVN 12.04 is codenamed ‘Chimney House’ after The Chimney House venue in Kelham Island, Sheffield. We’re all looking forward to popping to The Chimney House to celebrate the joint release of uberSVN 12.04, uberSVN moving out of beta, and uberSVN’s first birthday.
Thank you to everyone who downloaded, deployed and provided feedback on the beta release. We have even more exciting announcements lined up over the coming months, so if you haven’t given uberSVN a go, now’s the perfect time! It’s free to download and free to use, just visit http://www.ubersvn.com/download to grab your copy.
