Happy New Year from WANdisco!
At WANdisco HQ we’re staring 2012 as we mean to go on: with a string of announcements! Firstly, we are pleased to announce an exciting new addition to uberSVN and uberAPPS: professional support for Jenkins. Jenkins has been available as an easy-to-install app through uberSVN since last year, and now we are adding a Jenkins support option that is backed by CloudBees, the home of Jenkins founder Kohsuke Kawaguchi and Jenkins Enterprise by CloudBees. And the uberAPPS updates keep on coming: this month, we have also added crowdsourcing functionality from the world’s largest marketplace for software testing services, courtesy of our friends at uTest.
We were also pleased to see that the Bloodhound project is now an official Apache Incubator podling. As WANdisco is sponsoring some of the initial committers, we’re excited to see Bloodhound taking its first steps to becoming a fully-fledged Apache project. We’re looking forward to seeing some great first releases from Bloodhound.
A Happy New Year from everyone at WANdisco! We have plenty more announcements in store throughout 2012, so stay tuned!

WANdisco Supports New Apache Bloodhound Project
It’s no secret WANdisco is a big fan of open source, so we’re excited to see that the Bloodhound project has taken its first step to becoming a fully-fledged Apache Software Foundation project: Bloodhound has been voted into the Apache Incubator by the Apache community!
The Apache Bloodhound project will provide a software collaboration tool based on the code base of the well-known Trac project, and will include issue tracking, a wiki, and repository browsing. It will further build on Trac by incorporating some of the most popular plugins, to create a more complete distribution than your typical Trac installation. One of the Apache Bloodhound project’s core goals, is to create a strong developer community around the Trac code base in a vendor-neutral location. Trac has already included a potential Bloodhound project on its list of derivatives. At WANdisco, we are excited to get involved in this new project, by sponsoring some of the initial committers.
Check out the Bloodhound webpage for all the latest info on the project.

Free Webinars - Back for 2012
Throughout 2011, WANdisco offered a series of free bi-weekly hour long online training sessions for Subversion users and administrators. Due to the popularity of these webinars with the Subversion community, not only will our free training webinars make a return in 2012, but we’ve already delivered the first of the new series! The first webinar of 2012, showed attendees how to unlock the power of properties in Subversion, covering everything from creating and populating properties, to hook scripts, and using properties for control. The next webinar in the series will be ‘TortoiseSVN 1.7 New Features’. Early registration is recommended, as spaces are limited. We’ll be adding more courses throughout the year, so keep checking back to make sure you don’t miss out on any of our free Subversion trainings.
