WANdisco Continues to Invest in Subversion Open Source Project

Certified 1.6.15 Subversion Binaries Now Available for Free Download

Online PR News – 29-November-2010 – – WANdisco, the makers of Enterprise Subversion with the most active core developers from the project on staff, has continued its heavy investment in the Subversion Open Source project by being the first to make certified Subversion 1.6.15 binaries available for free download. WANdisco's certified Subversion binaries provide a complete, fully tested version of Subversion based on the most recent stable release, including the latest fixes.

Hyrum Wright, WANdisco's Director of Open Source, and release manager for the Subversion project said: "I would advise users to upgrade by downloading the latest release of these certified Subversion binaries. 1.6.15 continues the effort to enhance the functionality and improve the stability of the 1.6 release series."

WANdisco's certified Subversion 1.6.15 binaries are available for free downloaded at: http://www.wandisco.com/subversion/os/downloads.

The latest release of WANdisco's certified Subversion binaries include several key enhancements as well as bug fixes. One major benefit for users downloading 1.6.15 binaries is a fix for server-side crashes when using SVNParentPath and a memory leak invoked by running ‘svn blame –g'. The former affects only http-based SVN server installations while the latter affects all SVN server installations.

These freely available, certified Subversion binaries undergo the same rigorous quality assurance process that WANdisco uses for its enterprise products that support the world's largest Subversion implementations with over 40,000 users, 2,500 repositories and 18 million transactions per day in a single implementation. Free community support for WANdisco's certified Subversion binaries is available with registration at: http://subversion.wandisco.com

Pure Subversion Software Integrates Easily Without any Vendor Lock in Tricks.
Like all releases of WANdisco's certified Subversion binaries, these 1.6.15 binaries aren't polluted with any other software that users don't really need or want. WANdisco's pure Subversion binaries are only 6MB versus the massive 80MB packages of some vendors. Users aren't forced down the path of using proprietary defect trackers or any other software that they're not currently using with Subversion. WANdisco's certified Subversion binaries can be used with any other open source or closed source software that works with Subversion.

Customers that combine a WANdisco Subversion support contract with WANdisco's certified Subversion binaries have the added benefit of automated access to the latest fixes and updates.
