Apache Subversion 1.7.7 is now available to download. This latest release builds on Subversion 1.7, which was a major leap forward for the popular open source version control system. Subversion 1.7.7 features plenty more fixes and enhancements for users of the 1.7 series:
- A fix for a memory read bug
- Unknown password stores in configuration files no longer cause errors
- “All tests successful” is now printed at the end of ‘make check’
- Fixes for issues that could occur when applying Git patch files
- Status no longer descends into dir externals following upgrade
A full list of what’s new can be found in the Apache Subversion Changes file.

Taking place later this month in three locations – San Francisco, Greenwich and London – later this month, this series of two-day conferences will cover everything from branching and merging best practices, hook scripts, Apache Bloodhound, and more.
