 WANdisco, the leading provider of Apache Subversion-based software and services for the enterprise, and a major corporate sponsor of the Subversion project, has announced that the latest release, Subversion 1.7.3, is now available to download for free from its website, and also through the free, open ALM platform, uberSVN.

Apache Subversion 1.7 was a major release for the Subversion community, and this release features even more improvements. Subversion 1.7.3 adds support for 'svnadmin load --revision' load filtering, and 'svnadmin hotcopy --incremental' support for FSFS, along with new subcommands. Other useful enhancements, include:

  • the new 'commit --include-externals' option
  • new --ignore-properties option for 'svn diff'
  • new --patch-compatible option for 'svn diff'

The full information on what’s new and noteworthy, is available at the Changes file. As part of its commitment to the Subversion community, WANdisco has made the latest, certified open source binaries available through its website. Apache Subversion 1.7.3 is also available through uberSVN, the open ALM platform for Subversion that includes integrated apps, such as Jenkins and uTest.

“The reason we’re able to accomplish this so quickly with every release is that WANdisco is committed to Subversion’s success,” said David Richards, CEO and co-founder, WANdisco. “We have core Subversion developers on staff, who are actively involved with the rest of the Subversion community from the time a new release is in the planning stages, until it’s publicly available.”

WANdisco recently launched three migration packages designed for organizations looking to make the leap to Subversion 1.7. More information on these professional support options can be found at
