As you probably know, Subversion 1.4.4 was recently released. I wanted to let you know that the CollabNet Subversion team is hard at work putting together our packages for 1.4.4. We will release them in a staged order: Linux first, Solaris second and Windows third. Most of the time and effort in our release process is spent in QA and validation and the reason we do the Linux and Solaris packages first is that we can get those versions in the hands of our QA team the quickest. Eventually, I plan on making the order Linux, Windows, Solaris, as there are more Windows than Solaris users who are seeking the packages.
The Linux package is in the final stage of our validation process and I expect it to be available on openCollabNet later this week. The Solaris package should be available next week and Windows the following week.
It’s worth pointing out that the most significant fix in 1.4.4 is a potential (though very unlikely) repository corruption with BDB repositories. Since CollabNet recommends FSFS and CollabNet Subversion comes pre-configured with that back-end, this BDB fix does not affect CollabNet Subversion users.
