Subversion 0.6 (M6)

Subversion 0.6 is now available on the downloads page. This was
previously known as "Milestone 6", but now that we're firmly on the
road to 1.0, we might as well start numbering like it.

Choose `subversion-r442.tar.gz' from:


This tarball is meant for bootstrapping to a working tree. Use it to
check out a Subversion working copy, and then do everything in that
working copy; please don't submit patches against the tarball. :-)

The new features in this release are "svn mv", "svn cp", and "svn
log". There are a few caveats:

   * "svn cp" and "svn mv" work great on files. Yay!

   * Don't try to use them on directories yet. They work partially,
     but the code is still under development and there's no point
     trying to use it now.

   * "svn log" has no known bugs, but has performance problems when
     invoked with the "-v" option on a big revision range ("-v" causes
     log to print out the paths changed in each commit, as well as
     printing out the log message). For example:

         ### This works fine.
         $ svn log

         ### This will be unacceptably slow if run on the svn source tree.
         $ svn log -v

         ### But these would be fine, because the rev range is limited.
         $ svn log -r 442
         $ svn log -r 442:430
         $ svn log -r 442:430 -v

     This will be fixed soon; we know at least one way to make
     changed-path detection much more efficient, but haven't fully
     explored the solution space yet.

     For now, I recommend you use plain "svn log" first to establish
     which revisions you're interested in, and then use -v only
     together with -r.

The code contribution rate has increased a lot recently, making it
difficult to properly thank everyone who helped make 0.6 possible. If
you really want to know who did what, run "svn log" at the prompt. :-)
