WANdisco unveils SmartSVN 7.5

Newly enhanced cross-platform graphical client streamlines file management process, optimizing developer productivity and operations

smartsvn-logo.png WANdisco (LSE: WAND), a leading provider of global collaboration software to the software development industry, today announced SmartSVN 7.5, an enhanced cross-platform graphical client for Apache Subversion™ that enables developers to streamline the software development process by providing optimized access to Subversion capabilities. Available as either a standalone GUI or integrated directly with Windows, Linux, or Mac OS X, SmartSVN 7.5 provides organizations with a responsive and intelligent interface for increasing developer operations, resolving code conflicts, simplifying merges and customizing the overall developer experience.

“Through SmartSVN 7.5, software professionals have more simplified and optimized interface into native features and capabilities,” said David Richards, Chairman and CEO of WANdisco. “This provides organizations with a more efficient software development process, enabling them to reduce conflicts and errors and deliver high-quality products to market more rapidly.”

SmartSVN 7.5 can be easily purchased via the newly redesigned WANdisco store, an online resource for procuring a complete developer’s workspace that includes an SVN client, file compare, Conflict Solver and an SSH client. The WANdisco store offers a simplified purchasing experience, enabling developers to easily purchase and install SmartSVN 7.5 when they need it. Once downloaded, developers can immediately conduct a side-by-side comparison of features and directly edit the compared files. Developers can also work with tags and branches as conveniently as if they were native Subversion features. Because this is achievable within a single frame of reference, software development organizations can communicate with a Subversion server from a single location.

Other key features of SmartSVN 7.5 include:

  • Enhanced Interface delivers enhanced visualization: SmartSVN’s GUI provides a detailed project overview. The most important files, such as conflicting, modified and missing files, are displayed first, ensuring close attention is paid to these files - thereby increasing quality.
  • API architecture enables customizable experience: Developers can personalize client operations around other tools they use within the Subversion ecosystem. Users can extend menu options, add their own links, change keyboard shortcuts, set defaults and write their own plug-in using the SmartSVN API.
  • Conflict Solvers provides simplified detection and management of issues: SmartSVN’s built-in Conflict Solver combines the freedom of a general three-way-merge with the ability to easily detect and manually resolve such conflicts. Edits can be accepted, rejected or edited as necessary to meet product development specifications. 
  • Native merge capabilities streamline developer operations: Because native merge capabilities are included within a common merge workflow, users can perform all merge commands from within the client. This solves challenges associated with moved or renamed branch files being merged with SVN.

About Apache Subversion

Apache Subversion (SVN) is a version control system initiated in 2000. It is used to maintain current and historical versions of files such as source code, web pages, and documentation. Its goal is to be a mostly-compatible successor to the widely used Concurrent Versions System (CVS). In a 2007 report by Forrester Research, Subversion was recognized as the sole leader in the Standalone Software Configuration Management (SCM) category and a strong performer in the Software Configuration and Change Management (SCCM) category. Subversion is released under the Apache License, making it free software. For more information, please visit: http://subversion.apache.org.
