Happy summer! As well as enjoying the nice weather and longer days, this month we announced an exciting update for the uberSVN community.
uberSVN keeps going from strength to strength and, with an ever-growing community of users, we need your feedback more than ever to ensure we continue to deliver the features and functionality you need. Have some thoughts on the uberSVN user interface? Head over to SVNForum.org now to read our proposals for a redesigned Users/Teams tab and a redesigned Admin tab. If you’re a registered SVNForum.org user you can join the discussion by posting at the relevant thread (if you’re not already registered, then signing up is quick and easy!) Alternatively, send us your feedback directly.
We also announced a dedicated channel for keeping in touch with the uberSVN community, the Latest Release Channel. Everyone signed up to the Latest Release Channel will get a sneak preview of upcoming releases at least a few weeks before the rest of the uberSVN user base. This gives you the opportunity to test new features and see how they fit into your ALM environment before the update becomes widely available.
Members of the Latest Release Channel already have access to an update to uberSVN Chimney House. This update features a list of improvements and new functionality, including:
- Improvements to uberSVN APIs and internal development of uberSVN SDK.
- Further improvements to the way uberSVN handles LDAP and LDAPS.
- New manageAPPS page allows you to see metadata attached to your APP license.
- The latest Apache Subversion 1.7.5 binaries set to active by default.
- …..and more!
Not on the Latest Release Channel? Expect to see the uberSVN Chimney House update in the Stable Release Channel within the next two weeks. We’ve had a great uptake on the Latest Release Channel so far – if you’re an uberSVN user who wants to make your voice heard, then head over to our blog announcement to find out more.
But it hasn’t all been about uberSVN, we’re pleased to announce that registration for Subversion Live 2012 will be opening shortly!
After getting a great response from the Apache Subversion community in 2011, this year’s conference series is bigger and better than ever, with events taking place in San Francisco (October 10th & 11th) Greenwich, Connecticut: (October 16th & 17th) and London (October 23rd & 24th).

If you can’t wait until the conference for your Subversion training, we’ve just announced another set of free SVN training webinars for the Apache Subversion community. After receiving lots of feedback, we’ve added another one hour course on branching and merging, alongside plenty of other webinar goodness:

Finally, fancy winning an iPad or a Kindle Fire? You may remember we announced the 2012 Worldwide Developer Survey last month. The survey will help us to build a picture of the developer’s perspective on software development, and trends in the software change and configuration control management tools market. We already announced that, at the end of the Worldwide Developer Survey we’ll make the results available to everyone who took part but we’ve been so pleased with the response that we’re also entering all respondents into a prize draw. The top prize will be an iPad, with two lucky runners-up receiving a Kindle Fire. If you haven’t completed the survey, make sure you send us your answers before 13th July 2012 to be in with a chance of winning an iPad or Kindle Fire.
