Subversion 1.5 coming up

As the first release candidates for Subversion 1.5 & Tortoise SVN are now available, I decided to give them a try. The new features sound great: We will finally have merge tracking, sparse checkouts look interesting and synchronizing several SVN servers seems promising. And I wanted to give the new Subversion a try to get a feeling for how to best convert our repository at work.

First impressions:

  • Installation of Subversion and TortoiseSVN on my laptop went fine.
  • I’m now using the new Tortoise SVN client for accessing our regular 1.4 repository and my local 1.5 repository.
  • A very nice feature in the Subversion server installation: It already includes a pre-packaged Apache 2.2 web server.
