Subversion 1.7.1 Available From WANdisco

SAN RAMON, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 26, 2011) - WANdisco, a leading provider of Apache Subversion-based software and services for the enterprise, and a major corporate sponsor of the Subversion project, has announced that Subverson 1.7.1 is available for immediate download from its website and also through uberSVN, the free, open ALM platform for Subversion users.

Thanks to the rapid feedback from Subversion's early adopters and the quick response of the Subversion community, the first bug fix release of 1.7x has been released less than a fortnight after Subversion 1.7 was announced. Apache Subversion 1.7.1 contains many important user-visible and developer-visible changes, including an FSFS sanity check to prevent corruption seen in the wild, and improvements to the performance of both svn info and hash table sorting, and improvements to the memory usage in merge. A full list of the fixes and enhancements is available in the Changes file.

This is the most complete Subversion release to date, and users are encouraged to upgrade as soon as possible. As part of their commitment to the open source community, WANdisco have certified, open source 1.7.1 binaries available for free download from their website. Subversion 1.7.1 is also available through uberSVN, WANdisco's open, extensible platform for ALM.

For Windows users, TortoiseSVN 1.7.1 can also be downloaded directly from WANdisco.
