“The latest version of Subversion delivers strong enhancements in merging and easier centralized configuration, as well as reducing the storage space needed for repositories. Subversion continues to lead the market in open-source SCM usage,” said Mark Phippard, senior director, Subversion engineering for CollabNet. “Subversion Edge makes it very easy to adopt the new Subversion release via a simple installation process for new users, or a one-click upgrade for existing users. Additionally, Subversion Edge ensures that you have an optimally configured server so that you can enjoy all the benefits that the new release offers.”

Subversion Edge 4.0 now also includes the new Apache HTTP Server 2.4 series, extending the value of Subversion 1.8 through a free, one-click upgrade. Subversion 1.8 helps improve operational efficiencies for enterprise administrators through the automation and management of standardized policies, and improves productivity since developers no longer need to maintain the policies themselves. Working copy move/renames are now recorded as first-class operations for improved quality of code assurance, and Subversion is made more Agile-friendly due to ease-of-use improvements and better merging capabilities. CollabNet updated its training, services and support for Subversion 1.8 as well.
