Subversive New and Noteworthy for Juno

Also see the New & Noteworthy for: Indigo, Helios, Galileo

Introduction

Beside concentrating on plug-in stability, in Subversive for Juno we've introduced a set of important features. There are features that should benefit those who uses SVN in their everyday work and those who uses Subversive plug-in in their products.

SVN 1.7 support

Bugs 361257, 365627, 374582 and 372781. Beside major API changes SVN 1.7 introduces a new working copy format which has no backward compatibility with the previous ones. So, our main goal was to minimize impact of new SVN API support on dependent tools and provide stable and easy ways to convert existing working copies into the SVN 1.7 format.

Latest SVN client libraries included

Bugs 374581, 375168 and 380075. There were many issues fixed recently in the SVN support libraries and so, it's reasonable to update Subversive SVN Connectors with the most recent ones.

SVN client activity tracking API

Bugs 356023 and 356024. There were many requests about the ways to intercept a different SVN activities, like committing, updating, registering repository locations etc. After carefuly checking all the requests we've introduced SVN client calls interception API and repository location listener API. When used together they allows to track not just every SVN client function call but even modify its parameters when it's needed. We're really thankful to those who spent their time discussing those API changes together with us: Jc Temp, Eike Stepper, Adrian.

UI commit extensions improvements

Bug 356025. IModifiableCommentDialogPanel interface was introduced. It allows to override an initial commit comment prior to opening the commit dialog (special thanks to Jc Temp).

Smartcard login on Windows (MSCAPI Support)

Bug 351510. This feature allows to login with smartcards for the SVNKit connector version 1.3.3 and later and was contributed by Markus Oberlassnig (ilogs information logistics GmbH).

New decoration mode for branches and tags

Bug 359650. There are cases when you use a multi-project layout and your branches and/or tags structure are really complex. In this case it would be better to use new [fullpath] decoration mode, which will display the path starting from branches or tags root and up to the project, excluding project name itself.

Usability improvements

Bug 356042. When creating a patch and selecting save "In workspace", the default location of the selection dialog now is the project itself. Bug 353875. Now "Replace with Revision..." action allows replace to finish successfully even if there are locked files in case if there are no changes to them (special thanks to Neels Hofmeyr). Bugs 364407 and 370072. Now Subversive allows to solve both: property and content conflicts with the same "Edit Conflicts" action and all the actions related to conflicts handling now are availble in the Team menu too.
