San Ramon, CA April 21, 2011 – WANdisco, a leading provider of Apache Subversion-based software and services for the enterprise, has announced uberSVN, a major new product designed to transform the world’s most popular source code management system into an extensible platform that empowers software developers by giving them the widest choice of toolsets.

uberSVN VideouberSVN opens up the developer freedom to choose any combination of software development tools that best fit the business requirements in hand. Toolset choice can be based on price or functionality, the use of open or closed source proprietary applications – and there is no vendor lock-in. The product is freely available, but professional support is available from WANdisco.

WANdisco already has an extensive list of companies using its Enterprise Subversion solutions, so along with WANdisco’s active participation and sponsorship of the Apache Subversion project, the company is arguably doing more than any other single vendor to contribute to the functionality of this visionary platform.

“For the past five years we have supported the world’s largest Subversion implementations,” said David Richards, President and CEO of WANdisco. “Subversion is the most popular source code management software on the planet with over five million deployments. Now uberSVN gives Subversion users what they want - an easy to use product that they can extend, however they choose, whenever they want.”

What will uberSVN give to Subversion users?

Open ALM platform based on Subversion:

uberSVN turns Subversion into an open, extensible platform for ALM that is easy to install, easy to use and easy to extend. The concept is that uberSVN is a platform in the sense that it enables developers to take a set of disparate applications and, by providing the right packaging and integration, deliver a complete solution.

Easy to use web interface and model configuration:

uberSVN is designed for users of any skill level and development teams of any size. Rich system and user administration capabilities and a model configuration take the hassle out of managing and deploying Subversion. Expert users can change the configuration anytime.

Freedom to choose – no vendor lock-in.

uberSVN gives programmers the freedom to choose the best open source and closed source applications for defect tracking, project management, build management as well as other ALM functions and replace them any time.

First ever integrated social coding environment for Subversion

uberSVN is organised around development teams and their activities. Each development team has its own home page that profiles the team members, lists the projects they’re working on, repositories they’re using and their latest activity and status. Managers are able to see real-time progress by simply subscribing to these Twitter-like feeds.

Solid Foundation:

uberSVN is built on top of WANdisco's pure certified Subversion binaries that we put through the same rigorous testing as our Enterprise Subversion solutions that support the world's largest Subversion deployments.

About 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.
