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.

Bug [https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=376317 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).

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 [https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=390467 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).

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 [https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=354843 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 [https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=401612 401612]. Also now Subversive strictly follows guidelines on which resource type the property could be set: a file, a folder, both or a revision.

Introduction

Main target of this release is performance and stability improvement.

Documentation

With passing years due to many changes in plug-in functionality, documentation became slightly out of date. Although it requires a lot of work, it is still important and we plan to continue working on it in the future releases too. So, for now it is the issues #503325, #503330, #503542, #504927, #505006, #505089, #505115, #505119, #503329, #503327 that were addressed.

Stability

Stability improvements made were mainly related to the plug-in's compare functionality, such as issues caused by behaviour difference between SVN Kit and JavaHL API calls, improving the results representation etc. You can check addressed issue details on Eclipse Bugzilla in items: #501030, #506756, #502505, #505370, #508236, #508237, #495202, #492534. #509192, #509424.

Performance

Thanks to the community people's help, there were some major performance improvements including both: CPU and memory usage reduction. These issues are addressed by Bugzilla items #501032, #505611, #506785, #506757, #506760, #506762, #506763, #506777, #504058, #506811, #505360.

Usability improvements

In order to improve comparison results representation we've provided an option in "Compare with..." dialogues, that allows to choose between ignoring of the common ancestry of the compared resources or not (issues #508231, #512313).
