Apache Subversion 1.7.21 released

From: Stefan Sperling <stsp_at_apache.org>
Date: Wed, 5 Aug 2015 22:36:02 +0200

I'm happy to announce the release of Apache Subversion 1.7.21.
Please choose the mirror closest to you by visiting:


This release fixes two security issues:

    Subversion's mod_authz_svn does not properly restrict anonymous
    access in some mixed anonymous/authenticated environments when
    using Apache httpd 2.4.

    Subversion servers, both httpd and svnserve, will reveal some
    paths that should be hidden by path-based authz.

The SHA1 checksums are:

Known issues in this release:

    The test suite ("make check") is broken in this release. Most tests log
    an error about an unknown "--httpd-version" option in the tests.log file.
    The following patch can be applied to fix this problem and run the test
    suite properly. This problem will be fixed in the upcoming 1.7.22 release.
