WANdisco’s August Roundup

This month we announced some exciting releases for the Apache Subversion community: the release of Subversion 1.7.6, and updates for uberSVN and TortoiseSVN.

Building on the 1.7 series, Apache Subversion 1.7.6 added even more fixes and enhancements for the SVN community:

  •  A fix for running tests against httpd version 2.4
  • Constant struct initialisers now used for C89 compatibility
  • Fixes for the output of ‘svn propget -R’ ‘svn proplist’ and ‘svn status’
  • Optimized ‘svn upgrade’ performance on large working copies
  • A fix for ‘svn upgrade’ on working copies with certain tree conflicts
  • Fixes for two asserts into errors for TortoiseSVN

More information on what’s new in Subversion 1.7.6 can be found in the Changes file. As always, if you want to get your hands on the latest, certified binaries you can do so from our website. The latest version of TortoiseSVN – 1.7.8 – is also available for download. This release is linked against Subversion 1.7.6, and features a list of bug fixes. For more information on all the updates and fixes in TortoiseSVN 1.7.8, check out the Changelog.

The uberSVN community also saw an update, as the WANdisco developers finished off uberSVN ‘Chimney House’ Release 3.

uberSVN ‘Chimney House’ Release 3 features many improvements and enhanced functionality for uberSVN’s ever-growing community of users. These include:

  •  Further improvements to the way uberSVN handles LDAP and LDAPS.
  • Improvements to uberSVN APIs and internal development of the uberSVN SDK (public release coming soon!)
  • New manageAPPS page allows you to see metadata attached to your APP license, such as expiry date, number of named users, and more.
  • A list of bug fixes, including some fixes and alignment/mapping of the uberSVN Access Control Team Leader and uberSVN Delegated Team Admin (where uberSVN Access Control is active)
We also conducted a community poll to find out more about how you’re using Subversion. We asked what operating system your Subversion server is running on and, once again, there was a very clear winner…..

You may have already noticed that we’ve been adding new Subversion refcards. We’ve had such a great response that we’ve already put together two more – ‘All About the Apache Subversion Commit Command’ and ‘All About Checkouts.’ The first covers everything from the basic “what is a commit?” to more advanced information on editing log messages, ignoring files and directories, and an intro to hook scripts. ‘All About Checkouts’ provides a quick reference to making full use of the checkout command and understanding the messages generated under different scenarios.

We hope you’re enjoying these latest refcards, and if have any ideas for future refcards, please do not hesitate to Contact Us. If you’re after more Apache Subversion know-how, then why not take a look at our upcoming Subversion Live conference?

On the enterprise side of things, we published a new case study of our enterprise-class Subversion MultiSite product. The case study looks at how global logistics technology leader Navis – a subsidiary of Cargotec, enjoyed a 10x improvement in Subversion performance and achieved 24-by-7 uptime across all of their development sites after implementing our Subversion MultiSite solution. Read the Navis case study in full to find out more.

Also this month, WANdisco CEO and co-founder David Richards was asked to do an interview with BloombergTV – check out the full video interview below!

Finally our friend, photographer Matt Lollar popped into the office to take some new snaps of WANdisco’s Sheffield office.
