On the heels of Subversion 1.8.8, I’m pleased to announce the release of 1.7.16 on behalf of the Apache Subversion project. Along with the official Apache Software Foundation source releases, our own fully tested and certified binaries are available from our website.
1.7.16 is a bugfix and security fix releases and does not include major new features. 1.7.16 includes the following changes:
- A security fix that prevents Apache httpd from crashing when SVNListParentPath is turned on and certain requests are received. Further details on the issue can be found in the advisory the Apache Subversion project has published.
- Reduced memory usage in both server implementations during checkout and export operations.
- Fixed an issue that caused executing a copy of a relocated path to break the working copy.
- Resolve a number of regressions in diff that we introduced in 1.7.14. Most notably, requesting a diff against a specified revision and a working copy file that had a svn:mime-type property would fail.
For a complete list of new features and fixes, visit the Apache changelogs for Subversion 1.7.
