=== Connectors Discovery feature  ===
  
=== Include information about merged revisions into annotation ===
+
Bug [https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=280889 280889]. Subversive's Connector Discovery feature makes the process of finding and installing SVN Connectors much faster and easier than it was in versions before 0.7.8.I20090808-1900, when the installation process went like this:
Bug [https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=240156 240156].

*Install Subversive from 2 different update sites: one for SVN Team Provider and another for SVN Connectors
 +
*There were many combinations for installing Subversive and SVN Connectors, and some of these combinations were not compatible
  
=== Decorate working sets in Package Explorer ===
+
The Connector Discovery feature greatly simplifies the things. Now you can install only Subversive SVN Team Provider. The next time Eclipse starts, on the first call to any Subversive functionality the Connector Discovery feature will detect that there are no connectors installed and will launch a dialog which displays the SVN Connectors you need and enables download and installation:
Bug [https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=242249 242249].
+

=== List all locked files in a project ===
Bug [https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=211420 211420].
+
Provide headless update site for Subversive, e.g. it can be used when executing eclipse in headless mode to perform builds.
+
  
=== Automatically update project metadata if it was relocated outside of Eclipse ===
+
Bug [https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=279602 279602]. Add SVN Locks view which shows SVN locks and provides corresponding actions such as Lock, Unlock, Break Lock.
Bug [https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=231427 231427].
+
When a project is relocated outside Eclipse, and the new URL matches an already-existing repository location, Subversive automatically updates its metadata.
+
  
=== UI pops up dozens of error dialogs making eclipse unusable ===
+
[[Image:Lock_view.png]]
Bug [https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=220292 220292].
+
Fixed bug: After importing an existing project (with SVN metadata) into the workspace dozens of "Operation failed" dialogs are displayed, making eclipse unusable.
+

[[Image:Revisions-range-history.png]]
+
Bug [https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=295079 295079].
 +
As authorization database is superseded by the Equinox secure storage, store secure data in Secure Storage. It was deleted obsolete Password Management page in SVN preferences, instead of it you can manage the list of passwords that have been saved via Secure Storage preference page. On first running of Subversive with Secure Storage support, secure data is automatically migrated from Authorization database, so you don't need to reenter it manually.

+
  
[[Image:Checkout-from-svn.png]]
+
=== Correctly support externals in actions ===
  
=== Browse button in Share dialog ===
+
Bug [https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=290386 290386]. Handle resources in external definitions as normal resources, especially it concerns to complex cases of defining externals, e.g. in commit, revert actions, decoration, Synchronize view.
Bug [https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=211233 211233].

=== Add synchronize pane to commit panel ===
+
Bug [https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=245874 245874].
+
While committing resources, resources to commit can be shown in the similar way as in Synchronize view. There's a preference which allows to show resources either in old or new style.
+
 
+
[[Image:Commit-pane-pref.png]]
+

Here's how commit pane looks like:

=== Implement/use Team API's introduced in Eclipse 3.2 ===
+
Bug [https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=211251 211251].
+
Starting from 3.2 Eclipse provides support for Logical Model Integration. The logical model integration support defines API that allows logical models to participate in team operations.
+
There was done a lot of work to support new Team API in Subversive, e.g. rework synchronize and merge subscribers and participants, change set changes, actions were re-worked to support logical models etc. There's a preference which allows to switch between old model and new model with logical model support.
+
 
+
[[Image:Logical-models-pref.png]]
+
 
+
Here is how new Synchronize view looks like, as you can see there's an ability to switch between different logical models, e.g. in 'Java Workspace' model synchronize view shows java elements such as packages.

=== Add a pre-commit check for files with errors and warnings ===
+
Bug [https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=263442 263442].
+
If the resource to commit contains validation errors, e.g. java file has compilation errors, there's a warning message in the top of commit dialog which says about it:
+

[[Image:Pre-commit-check.png]]
+
 
+
=== Add ability to create SVN repository ===
+
Bug [https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=263951 263951].
+
This facility provides a probability to create a new repository on local drive. There are two kinds of file system type: File System and Berkley DB which the user can select. There is option to create a repository location for just created repository which uses file:/// scheme (direct repository access). Accessible from 'SVN Repository View' (click on 'New Repository' button).
+
 
+
Note:
+
''The Create Repository operation is available only for JavaHL SVN Connector. If the user selects SVN Kit connector the action is not enabled.''

+
=== Configuration alternative of a diff viewer for MS-WORD documents ===
+
Bug [https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=260236 260236].
+
User can configure external diff/merge programs used for comparing different revisions of files. User can associate an external diff program to specific file extension or mime type. For example, in order to specify file extension for doc files use .doc. Example of mime-type usage: text/plain. Also user can specify external diff program which will be applied for all files by using an asterisk(*) in extension/mime-type field.
+
 
+
For each file extension/mime-type user can specify following parameters: diff program path, diff program arguments, merge program path, merge program parameters. Diff program settings are applied for compare actions. Merge program settings are applied for Edit Conflicts action. The external program will need to obtain the filenames from the command line, along with any other command line options.
+
Subversive is supplied with default configuration for file extension associations, default configuration includes paths to script files which allow to run external programs. It includes configuration for following file extensions: doc, docx, xls, xlsx, ppt, pptx, odt, ods.
+
 
+
'''Tip:'''
+
''Default diff handlers provided by Subversive are loaded and can be used only on Microsoft Windows. For other operating systems users can configure their own handlers.''
+

This is how 'Diff Viewer' properties page looks like:

=== Support for files in svn:externals ===
+
Bug [https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=269155 269155].
+
Since 1.6 version SVN supports for files in svn:externals. If the URL in a svn:externals description refers to a file, it will be added into the working copy as a versioned item.
+
Here's a screenshot which shows file externals in SVN Repositories view:
+
 
+

+
 
+
=== Detection of tree conflicts ===
+
Bug [https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=269156 269156].
+
Since 1.6 version SVN recognizes a new kind of conflict, known as a "tree conflict". Such conflicts manifest at the level of directory structure, rather than file content.
+
Subversive detects tree conflicts during update/switch/merge operations and provides additional information about the conflict with the ability to edit it.
+
Resources with tree conflicts have the same decoration as the resources with conflicts at the level of file content. You can edit tree conflicts by right-clicking conflicted resource and calling 'Edit Tree Conflicts' action.
+
This is how 'Edit Tree Conflict' dialog looks like:
