TortoiseSVN is een client voor Subversion en integreert zichzelf in de Windows Shell. Het ontwikkelteam heeft versie 1.2 naar buiten gebracht en is gebaseerd op versie 1.2.0 van Subversion. Wie meer over dit programma te weten wil komen kan de bijbehorende documentatie doorlezen. De release notes laten ons het volgende weten:
What's New in TortoiseSVN 1.2
- Optional locking ("reserved checkouts")
- New, much improved overlay cache
- Better use of overlays when co-existing with TortoiseCVS
- Many improved dialogs
- Many bugfixes
- Implemented all new Subversion 1.2 features
- Linked against SVN 1.2
TortoiseSVN 1.2 is compatible with 1.0 and 1.1 servers. Of course, some of the new 1.2 features may not be available unless the server is upgraded to the latest version.
If you access a BDB repository using file:// access you will need to update that repository to BDB 4.3 format. Instructions on how to do that can be found on the Subversion FAQ page
Subversion 1.2 introduces an alternative history storage mechanism known as xdelta differencing. Reconstructing older data from repositories stored in the new format is much faster, resulting in a noticeable speedup for operations such as blame, checkout, diff and merge. Although converting repositories is not required, you may wish to do so in order to gain faster access. To do that you need to perform a dump/load cycle using the command line svnadmin tool. Look at the Subversion Manual for instructions on how to do that.
The Windows 98/Me and Windows NT 4.0 operating systems are no longer supported in TortoiseSVN 1.2. That's not because we want to be unfriendly, but because there are just too many incompatibilities in these older OS versions which we have to work around, and as none of the developers use these systems it is impossible to test and debug properly. If you want to use TortoiseSVN with these systems, you should use the 1.1.x line which is still available from our download page.[break]Om TortoiseSVN in het Nederlands te gebruiken kan je deze language pack binnenhalen.
