The Apache Subversion team has announced two new releases: Subversion 1.7.9 and 1.6.21.

Subversion 1.7.9 improves the error messages for svn:date and svn:author props, and it improves the logic in mod_dav_svn’s implementation of lock, as well as a list of other features and fixes:

  • Doxygen docs now ignore prefixes when producing the index

  • Javahl status api now respects the ignoreExternals boolean

  • Executing unnecessary code in log with limit is avoided

  • A fix for a memory leak in `svn log` over svn://

  • An incorrect authz failure when using neon http library has been fixed

  • A fix for an assertion when rep-cache is inaccessible

More information on Apache Subversion 1.7.9 can be found in the Changes file.

Meanwhile, Subversion 1.6.21 improves memory usage when committing properties in mod_dav_svn, and also improves logic in mod_dav_svn’s implementation of lock, alongside bug fixes including:

  • A fix for a post-revprop-change error that could cancel commits

  • A fix for a compatibility issue with g++ 4.7

More information on Apache Subversion 1.6.21 can be found in the Changes file.

Both versions can be downloaded free via the WANdisco website.
