[subversive-dev] Announcing the release of EasySVN
Assembla is announcing the release of EasySVN, a free, open-source
Subversion client with unique features to make Subversion easier to use.
We just posted a 1.0 release for Windows and a beta release for
Macintosh. You can download them from http://assemb.la/EasySVN
EasySVN adds the following capabilities:
Automatic update and commit mode. When this is selected, your
subversion working copy acts like Dropbox, gDrive, Skydrive, and related
cloud file systems. It has the advantage of being open source and
portable, so you have many options for the location and security of
files. Because it’s Subversion, it handles big files and repositories.
This mode is useful for graphical files from designers, and other files
that aren’t code.
• Simplified operations to checkout, invite,
and create repositories on the Assembla hosting system. For example,
selecting “Share on Assembla” on any local directory will create a
repository, add the files, and commit them, in one operation.
• Free backend storage. Select “Share on Assembla” and you immediately get one of our free subversion repositories.
Windows release builds on TortoiseSVN, the most popular Windows client.
Assembla worked with the TortoiseSVN team and with joint team member
Stefan Fuhrmann to design the background replication features.
Macintosh release is integrated into the Finder. It builds on the
once-popular SCPlugin open source client, which did not work after OSX
version 10.6 because Apple disabled Finder plugins. The Assembla team
re-engineered it to use the Apple’s new Services structure. They also
updated it to Subversion 1.7, added a *nix port of the automatic
update and commit, and added the Assembla integration.
The automatic update and commit operations are also available in a Linux command line version with source code.
