Subversion 1.5 Final Release Candidate Available

May 27, 2008 Mark Phippard

Simplify Apache™ Subversion® 1.5.0-rc7 was released today.  As with all the previous milestones, CollabNet  provides binaries for various operating systems for you to try the release.

This is expected to be the final release candidate and the official 1.5.0 release should happen in roughly 10 days if all goes well.  Bugs reported on this release candidate will likely be addressed in a 1.5.1 or other follow-up release.  Exceptions might be bugs that are considered serious regressions or API incompatibilities.

Fixes included since the last rc are fairly minor.  They were mostly documentation fixes in the code and some minor bug fixes.  Probably the most significant change was to the new API for including arbitrary revision properties in a commit.  During review of this API it was decided that there was a cleaner way to implement it, and so a change was made before the release became final.  Since it is a public API, once it is included in an official release we would have to support it until the 2.0 release, and this was deemed significant enough to get it in before the release is public.  This API change also led to a number of corresponding changes in the JavaHL API and the other language bindings.

As with the previous release candidates, we appreciate your testing and feedback.  A number of bug fixes have been made since the 1.5.x branch was created that came from users who tested these early releases.
