Subversion 1.7 Support
We are pleased to announce the support of Subversion 1.7 for all Unfuddle customers. There are a whole host of additions and updates that come with this release. Here are just a few:
Dumps and Loads can both be done remotely
Subversion 1.7 brings with it a new command,
svnrdump, which essentially replicates the
svnadmin dump and
svnadmin load commands and can be used on remote repositories.
This will allow you to load a local dump file directly into a new Subversion repository in your Unfuddle account. It is no longer necessary to jump through hoops in order to do this. Likewise, you can also generate a full dump of your Unfuddle Subversion repository right from within your Subversion client without the need to do a full export of your Unfuddle project.
Working copy metadata storage is now centralized
In previous versions of Subversion, a working copy contained a ".svn" metadata directory in each directory of the file hierarchy. With Subversion 1.7, the working copy will have just a single ".svn" metadata directory in the root of the working copy.
Upgrading your working copy
Of course each pre-1.7 working copy will need to be updated in order to use a Subversion 1.7 client. In previous releases this happened automatically, however, Subversion 1.7 requires this to be done manually. This is as simple as running a new command called
svn upgrade. This command can take some time to run for some users so it may make more sense in some cases to simply checkout your Unfuddle repository fresh with your updated SVN client.
For a complete list of updates, please see the official Subversion 1.7 release notes.
