Subversive New and Noteworthy for Kepler
This release's main goal was plug-in stability improvement and we've fixed more than 60 different issues. On the other hand we've implemented a set of features that should benefit those who uses SVN in their everyday work and those who uses Subversive plug-in in their products.
Latest SVN client libraries included
Win64 platform support
Bug 376317. While installing JavaHL 64-binaries is easy enough task on unix-platform, that is not so for Win64 platform. Now there is a way to install them from the connectors update site or use those of the another distribution (SlikSVN, for example).
Plug-in integration API improvements
Bugs 306806, 400575 and 389933. There were important issues that needed our attention in order to simplify integrating our plug-in into other tools. That's why we've made improvements in the plug-in's integration API. Now there is a an extension point for declaring custom properties, post-commit hook's messages processing API, and the way to flexibly override SVN Core plug-in's configuration options provided by SVN UI or any other plug-in.
Bug 390467. We've implemented a human-readable numeric ordering of branches' and tags' names which allows to sort them naturally (1.1 -> 1.2 -> ... -> 1.10 instead of 1.1 -> 1.10 -> 1.2 -> ...) in difference to previously used string-based comparision (special thanks to Claudio Weiler and Jörg Thönnes).
Bugs 296239 and 370254. There are some changes to clear misunderstandings on how the resource selection button works in Add/Commit/Replace dialogs, also there is an improvement with the default start and stop revisions of the SVN Annotate function.
Bug 354843. SVN 1.7 API allows to handle post-commit hook's meassages nicely, so now Subversive will display a message, returned by post-commit hook (special thanks to Martin Kutter).
Bug 401612. Also now Subversive strictly follows guidelines on which resource type the property could be set: a file, a folder, both or a revision.
