Subversion 1.5 RC5
Earlier this week, the Subversion community issued an RC5 release with the latest round of fixes. As we have done with previous releases, CollabNet is providing binaries for Windows, Linux, OSX and Solaris. The CollabNet Merge client and Subclipse have both been updated as well.
Here is a list of some of the noteworthy fixes I see (in order they were backported):
Fix bug whereby ‘svn status –depth=files’ still showed some dirs.
- r30743, r30751
Fix memory leak in recursive remote propget.
- r30776, r30777, r30779
svndumpfilter drops mergeinfo when it is *not* run with –renumber-revs.
- r30666, r30684, r30726
Fix for issue 3181. Compare repository UUID with working copy when opening RA session
- r30761, r30762
Fix for issue 3172. ‘log -g’ fails the moment it encounters a bogus mergeinfo which claims a merge from a non-existentpath@REV1-REV2.
Fix pool issue which definitely can lead to assertion failures in reintegrate, and quite possibly to other mergeinfo corruption.
- r30868, r30871
In svnserve, tolerate unreadable passwd files. Don’t error over svn+ssh:// when the user can’t read passwd.
Fix abort in ra_serf when server sends invalid xml during replay.
Fix for issue 3185. Fix the ‘log –limit’ compatability code in ra_svn, ra_serf, and ra_neon to ignore nested logs when in ‘-g’ mode.
- r30883, r30888
Fix issue 3187. Fix reverse merges where merge target or subtree has non-inheritable revision ranges intersecting with the merged range.
Remove ‘blind deletion of argument to mkdir –parents’, delete only if this invocation has created it.
- r30896, r30905
Make Cyrus SASL client support DIGEST-MD5.
Fix potential segfault in svn_io_remove_dir2(path=’.’).
- r29191, r29398, r29833, r30663, r30963, r30964
Improve the responsiveness and accuracy of ‘svn log -g’.
