Apache Subversion 1.7.1 Released

It’s been less than two weeks since the Apache Subversion community celebrated the release of Subversion 1.7, a major update for the Subversion project that delivered both new client tools and some long-awaited client-side performance improvements. Thanks to rapid feedback from Subversion’s early adopters and the hard work of the Subversion community, Subversion 1.7.1 is already available.

Apache Subversion 1.7.1 contains a list of important user-visible and developer-visible changes, including an FSFS sanity check to prevent corruption seen in the wild, and improvements to the performance of both ‘svn info’ and hash table sorting, and improvements to the memory usage in merge.

Other important fixes in 1.7.1 include:

  • a fix for a memory leak in ‘merge –reintegrate.
  • a fix for an invalid assertion in merge.
  • a fix for upgrading WCs containing authz-restricted dirs.
  • updated bash completion for 1.7.
  • fixed handling of directories after ‘update –set-depth=empty
  • make ‘svn ls’ continue to work with 1.0-1.3 repos.

More information on the fixes and enhancements, is available in the Changes file. This is the most complete Subversion release to date, and users are encouraged to upgrade to this release as soon as possible. As part of our commitment to the Subversion community, fully-tested, certified, open source 1.7.1 binaries can be downloaded from WANdisco now. Subversion 1.7.1 is also available through our free, uberSVN platform for Subversion.

The TortoiseSVN Windows client has also upgraded to 1.7.1, featuring fixes in both TortoiseSVN and the underlying Subversion library. TortoiseSVN 1.7.1 can also be downloaded directly from the WANdisco website.
