San Ramon, CA November 9, 2010 – WANdisco, the makers of Subversion with the most active core developers from the project on staff, today announced the immediate availability of SVN MultiSite 4.0 with major new enterprise capabilities that will provide significant enhancements for the world's largest Subversion deployments.

As WANdisco's sought-after Subversion product range increases yet again, SVN MultiSite will include the following new features:

  • SSL support to encrypt all network traffic between development sites.
  • High volume parallel transaction processing on large servers hosting multiple Subversion repositories.
  • A silent installer that automates deployment across multiple development sites for faster implementation.
  • Complete LDAP integration for distributed implementations.

"We are seeing record numbers of Subversion users turn to WANdisco to enable massive scaling, 100 percent uptime and the uncompromised security that is provided by our class-leading enterprise solutions."
