SmartSVN 8 Available Now

We’re pleased to announce the release of SmartSVN 8, the popular graphical Subversion (SVN) client for Mac, Windows, and Linux. SmartSVN 8 is available immediately for download from our website.

While the main feature of this release is support for Subversion 1.8, we’ve provided a few more enhancements and additional bug fixes.

New SmartSVN 8 features include:

  • Eagerly awaited support for Subversion 1.8 working copies, allowing you to use SmartSVN with a Subversion 1.8 server. (For a full list of Subversion 1.8 benefits see the Apache release notes)
  • Ability to specify different merge tools for different file patterns as conflict solvers, allowing you to customize SmartSVN to suit your needs.
  • Prevent showing a notification while a dialog is showing, ensuring you don’t miss anything important.
  • Project menu: “Open or Manage projects” (and others) are now available without the project window, allowing you to work faster and smarter.
  • OS X: dock icon click reopens minimized windows, making SmartSVN consistent with most OS X applications.
  • Upgrade: SmartSVN will convert 1.7 working copies to 1.8 format, making it easier for you to get started with Subversion 1.8.

SmartSVN 8 fixes include:

  • Possible internal errors closing project windows or the repository browser, or when using ‘add’ or Conflict Solver
  • Problems with comparing repository files or directories
  • Compare: upper block line was drawn 1 pixel too high in line number gutter
  • Commit: committing a removal of a directory using svn protocol did not work
  • Linux: notification popup might have been closed quickly after showing
  • Start Up: crash on Ubuntu 13.10

For a full list of all enhancements and bug fixes, see the changelog.
