Subversion 0.33.0 released.

From: <kfogel_at_collab.net>
Date: 2003-11-14 04:31:02 CET

The latest interim release of Subversion is ready at

   http://svn.collab.net/tarballs/subversion-0.33.0.tar.gz

The MD5 checksum is 938b452b50d02eeb72b50c344b34d8de.

This release contains a number of major improvements, due to the
efforts of many people around the world. I won't list them all by
name here, but... you know who you are. Thanks.

Notes:

   - Despite earlier warnings, this release does NOT require a
     repository dump/load cycle. (We've deferred those changes to
     the next release.)

   - If you run a mod_dav_svn server, you will need Apache HTTP
     Server 2.0.48, from http://httpd.apache.org/download.cgi.

Please direct questions/comments to the users@subversion.tigris.org
and/or dev@subversion.tigris.org mailing lists.

Here is the CHANGES list for this release:

--------------------------------------------------------------------
Version 0.33.0 (released 13 November 2003, revision r7737)
http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/tags/0.33.0

                              NOTICES:

    1. This client may be incompatible with ra_dav servers <= 0.31.

    2. In order to make commits more responsive, repository
       deltification is no longer automatic. However, you may want
       to run deltification as a background process in your repository
       post-commit hook. For example, the new post-commit.tmpl file
       recommends 'nice -2 svnadmin deltify "$REPOS" -r "$REV" &'.

 User-visible changes:
 * now require APR/APU 0.9.5 (ships in Apache 2.0.48)
 * lose automatic deltification, but recommend it in post-commit (r7695, #1573)
 * new configuration and authn/authz support in ra_svn (r7604, r7601)
 * much faster checkouts and updates, over both svn:// and http:// (#1429)
 * new partial-authz feature: checkouts/updates just skip unauthorized items
 * new 'use-commit-times = yes' config option to use commit-time timestamps
 * new 'svnadmin hotcopy' command, like hot-backup.py (#1567)
 * fix Win32 "access denied" error in renames (r7598, #1576)
 * unnecessary working copy tree locks now avoided, to save time (#1245)
 * Compatibility changes:
    - lose ra_dav compatibility with servers 0.31 and earlier
    - lose support for working copy format "1" (not created for over a year)
 * 'svn diff' and other read-only actions now work in read-only working copies
 * 'svn blame -rX' now does the intuitive thing
 * 'svn log' output headers now say "rXXXX | " instead of "rev XXXX: "
 * 'svnversion' no longer stymied by svn:externals
 * new 'svn pd' alias for 'svn propdel'
 * '-rCOMMITTED' keyword now works on more commands
 * minor changes to output of 'svn ls -v' and 'svn st -v' (r7530)
 * 'svn log --xml' now obeys the '-q' flag (r7555)
 * cvs2svn.py bugfixes, especially issue #1440
 * book and documentation updates
 * many other enhancements, minor features, and bugfixes not listed here

 Developer-visible changes:
 * repair text- and prop-time in .svn/entries if spuriously wrong (r7565)
 * speed up keyword translation (r7502)
 * two new editor functions, absent_file() and absent_directory()
 * ra_dav checkouts/updates no longer do O(n) number of GET, PROPFIND requests
 * new svn_io_temp_dir function, will morph to apr_temp_dir_get soon
 * new svn_io_file_close wrapper for apr_file_close
 * new helper scripts for testing, see tools/test-scripts/svntest/
 * many other changes not listed here
