Assembla is announcing the release of EasySVN, a free, open-source
Subversion client with unique features to make Subversion easier to use. We
just posted a 1.0 release for Windows and a beta release for Macintosh. You
can download them from http://assemb.la/EasySVN
EasySVN adds the following capabilities:
• Automatic update and commit mode. When this is selected, your subversion
working copy acts like Dropbox, gDrive, Skydrive, and related cloud file
systems. It has the advantage of being open source and portable, so you
have many options for the location and security of files. Because it’s
Subversion, it handles big files and repositories. This mode is useful for
graphical files from designers, and other files that aren’t code.
• Simplified operations to checkout, invite, and create repositories on the
Assembla hosting system. For example, selecting “Share on Assembla” on any
local directory will create a repository, add the files, and commit them,
in one operation.
• Free backend storage. Select “Share on Assembla” and you immediately get
one of our free subversion repositories.
The Windows release builds on TortoiseSVN, the most popular Windows client.
Assembla worked with the TortoiseSVN team and with joint team member Stefan
Fuhrmann to design the background replication features.
The Macintosh release is integrated into the Finder. It builds on the
once-popular SCPlugin open source client, which did not work after OSX
version 10.6 because Apple disabled Finder plugins. The Assembla team
re-engineered it to use the Apple’s new Services structure. They also
updated it to Subversion 1.7, added a *nix port of the automatic update and
commit, and added the Assembla integration.
The automatic update and commit operations are also available in a Linux
command line version with source code.
