Managing Subversion repositories in the web browser
CollabNet, an Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) specialist and provider of distributed software development solutions, has introduced Subversion Edge, a distribution of the Subversion SCM (Software Configuration Management) tool. In addition to Subversion, which was initially developed by CollabNet and has since been donated to the Apache Software Foundation (ASF), the distribution includes the Apache web server and the ViewVC repository viewer, a browser-based directory management system.
The web interface is designed to simplify the installation, configuration and administration of the software managed by Subversion. Among its features is an update mechanism which notifies users of any new components that become available for the software stack used by developer teams. New components can be installed directly via the user interface. Discussing the release, CollabNet CEO Bill Portelli said that the product's web configuration feature opens up new possibilities for Subversion users, pointing out that previous command-line-driven versions of the SCM required special expertise.
Subversion Edge is available as a beta version under the version 3 of the GNU Affero General Public Licence (AGPLv3). A final product release has been scheduled for the end of the summer.
