TortoiseSVN 1.8.1

TortoiseSVN 1.8.1 is a free Apache Subversion(SVN)client. Its implemented as a windows shell extension. It is very simple to use because it dos"t need any Subversion command line. Moreover all commands are available directly from the windows explorer. You can choose which entries TortoiseSVN should show in the top context menu and which it should put in the submenu. It can create a graph of all revisions/commits.

Integration with issue tracking systems

  • When showing all log messages, an extra column is added with the issue number. You can immediately see to which issue the commit belongs to.

  • Optional warning if a commit isn't assigned to an issue number

  • SubWCRev: to include the revision numbers/dates/... into your source files
Available in many languages
TortoiseSVN is stable
  • Before every release, we create one or more "release candidates" for adventurous people to test first.
  • During development cycles, many people test intermediate builds. These are built every night automatically and made available to all our users. This helps finding bugs very early so they won't even get into an official release.
  • A big user community helps out with testing each build before we release it.
  • A custom crash report tool is included in every TortoiseSVN release which helps us fix the bugs much faster, even if you can't remember exactly what you did to trigger it.
