Ladies and Gentlemen, we present you with another interim Subversion
release. While we finish a couple of large features for the upcoming
0.17 release, we wanted to get 0.16.1 out to people, because there are
so many changes and bugfixes.
The release notes and CHANGES are listed below. As usual, the 0.16.1
Subversion tarball can be found in the 'file sharing' area of our
* New APR library is needed *
Due to ongoing i18n improvements, svn 0.16.1 requires an APR
library later than January 3rd. You can either checkout the latest
APR from CVS (as detailed in INSTALL), or compile svn against a
special apache 2.0.44 prerelease tarball that we've provided in the
"releases" download area of our website (at least until apache
2.0.44 is released):
* Config files have changed *
If you have run-time options specified in your ~/.subversion/ area,
you'll need to recreate your config files, as most variable names
have changed. Move your old config files out of the way and rerun
the 'svn' client to auto-regenerate new templates. Then you'll
need to edit the new files to set your preferences.
* New features to play with *
- ra_svn and svnserve are now built automatically. These components
are a new network layer alternative to Apache2/mod_dav -- a
standalone server that supports ssh-tunneling. Read the end of
INSTALL for instructions on how to use it.
- mod_dav_svn now supports limited deltaV autoversioning: generic
DAV clients can write to your repository and cause automatic
commits, if you place "SVNAutoversioning on" into your httpd.conf
<Location>. OS X users may need the latest CVS version of
httpd-2.1 to make this work; ask for details on the dev list.
