I saw the link to the CollabNet downloads, but (AFAIK), they've been
providing SVN releases for a while, and at the same time we've had the
tigris.org releases. I'm pretty sure that at least on the 1.5.1 - 1.5.3
time frame, there have been releases of both.
My main peeve with the collab.net binaries, and the reason I'd rather
keep using the tigris ones, is that the full collab.net install sets up
a SVN server in the machine; I'm using subversion LOCALLY, via
TortoiseSVN using file:// URLS to access a local repo, so I'd rather not
add a new network server that I have to take care of.. But OTOH, I like
the fact that the Tigris.org installer includes the "server" parts, so I
can start SVNSERVE if needed (not too often, but happens, for example,
to sync repos via SVK)
That's why I was asking. ATM I'm running 1.5.3, but I like to keep
current, and TortoiseSVN keeps telling me that I can update to a newer

The windows binaries are now (since 1.5 I think) maintained by

Subject: Tigris.org binaries for Subversion 1.5.5?
Sorry if this question has already come up and being answered, but I've
been using the Tigris.org subversion binary packages for Windows
since... Well, ever, and I was wondering if there are any plans to
release installers for Subversion 1.5.4/1.5.5 for Windows? (I guess
that, according to the latest naming schema, that'd be
In the download page at
, I see that there are recent .zip packages with the binaries
themselves, but not any installer..
IF there are not plans to release an installer, would "unzipping" the
1.5.5 binaries in "C:\Program Files\Subversion" result in an upgraded
setup, or is it a bit more difficult than that?
In any case, thanks a lot for the time and effort invested in
maintaining these installers, and in the Subversion project in general.
Thanks a lot
