Syncro SVN Client can be freely evaluated for 30 days and can be purchased for a price of USD 59.

Repair Items Copied, Moved, or Renamed Outside of an Subversion (SVN) Client

Items that were copied, moved, or renamed without using an Subversion (SVN) client can be repaired to maintain their history, making SVN aware of all the changes.

Improved Copying of Repository Items

Repository items can now be copied from revisions other than the latest one, allowing you to recover any previous version you might need. This is allowed even if you are browsing older revisions in the Repositories view.

Extended Support for Copying Repository Items

Any version of a repository item can be retrieved directly when browsing its history either in the History view, Directory Change Set view, or Revision Graph view.

Resurrect Items Deleted from the Repository

Even if an item does not exist in the latest revision of the repository, its history is still preserved. Syncro Subversion (SVN) Client can resurrect any item presented as deleted in the History view, Directory Change Set view, or Revision Graph view.

What was new in Syncro SVN Client 8.1

March 14, 2013
Version 8.1 of Syncro SVN Client offers support for committing changes to multiple repositories at once. Also, the functionality of the commit operation was enhanced and further improvements were added regarding the representation and deletion of working copy items. Syncro SVN Client can be freely evaluated for 30 days and can be purchased for a price of USD 59.

Commit to Multiple Repositories

Syncro SVN Client offers support to commit working copy items across multiple external definitions in one single step. No more overhead to handle external modified items one by one. Even more, for SVN 1.7 working copies, externals from the same repository are committed together, resulting less revisions generated in the repository.

Remove Items from Version Control

Easily remove items from version control using a dedicated option. You no longer have to take different actions to avoid erasing files from your working copy when needing to remove items only from the repository.

Improved Working Copy Items Deletion

Any item missing from a working copy can be deleted, including missing directories. The Delete action is more powerful and can help you with removing working copy items that have states raising issues and unusual behaviors.

Improved Commit

Committing working copy changes has never been easier. The Commit operation was improved to help you when committing new items in the repository (unversioned or added), by automatically collecting their ancestor directories which also need to be versioned. Also, missing directories are now deleted when committing them. Finally, the commit dialog box was redesigned to present items in a working-copy-like style and information more appropriate for this operation.

Improved File Handling on Case-Insensitive File Systems

File renames outside of the SVN client, on case-insensitive file systems, are better handled regarding the Delete and Commit operations. The situations when a file was lost after changing only letter-cases of its name were removed.

Better State Detection and Triage of Working Copy Items

The states of the working copy items are detected in a more accurate manner. Any type of changes of a working copy item are now presented in the Incoming mode, allowing you to easily spot all sort of changes, including the ones which cannot be committed to the repository.

Easily Locate Files in Your File Manager

Working copy files can be easily located on your disk directly from the Working Copy view. You don't need to identify the parent directory and search through it.

Improvements and Bug Fixes

This new version comes with various improvements and bug fixes regarding opening and saving files from the repository, the check out operation and locks handling on commit. Memory and performance issues were addressed also.

What was new in Syncro SVN Client 8.0

Extended Support for Exporting Files

The support for exporting files from a repository was made available also in the Repositories and Revision Graph views. Now in the Repositories view it is possible to export both directories and individual files.

Full Support for "svn add"

Starting with version 8, the "svn add" command and all its options are fully supported. The resources not under version control are collected automatically from any directory of a working copy.

Improved Handling of Unversioned and Ignored Directories

Processing content of unversioned or ignored directories can be avoided using new options added in the Working Copy view. Syncro SVN Client can be configured to ignore content of such directories, speeding up the loading of a working copy as well as other SVN operations.

New Working Copy Data and Improved Representation

The local modification time of files and the local revision of any working copy item were added in the Working Copy view. Other changes include dimmed rendering of ignored resources and improved sorting speed of working copy data.

This version does not support yet the Apache SubversionTM 1.7 new features and working copies.

Share Project

A new action allows you to easily share a project on an SVN repository. This lessens the user effort by importing the project in the repository and converting the local project structure into an SVN working copy, all in a single step.

Workspace Concept

Introduced the concept of a workspace, used for now to assist you to checkout new projects in a predefined location.

Improved Working Copy Handling

Optimized the loading of working copies and switching between them. The load operation became more responsive, allowing you to cancel it from an early stage.

Bug Fixes

Numerous bug fixes and other small improvements.

Flexible Application Layout

Starting with version 7.1, Syncro SVN Client's flexible layout is back by popular demand. This allows you to adapt the application to different viewing conditions and personal requirements.

Redesigned History View

The History View was redesigned to optimize the screen area usage and to improve the way the information is delivered:
  • Now you can group revisions by their commit date to easily locate changes in time.
  • Improved representation of the paths affected in a revision, following the same design used in the Working Copy and Repositories views. Data sorting and key search features were added to help you easily handle large sets of affected resources.
  • Added tree-like representation of the affected paths used for filtering them by location.

Improved Syntax Highlight

Syncro SVN Client built-in editors feature a more accurate and efficient syntax highlight algorithm for the content you want to edit. Also, mixed content types are highlighted accordingly (like PHP scripts inside an HTML file).

Bug Fixes

Numerous bug fixes and other small improvements.

Note: This version of Syncro SVN Client is not compatible with Apache SubversionTM 1.7.

What was new in Syncro SVN Client 7.0

July 8, 2011
Version 7.0 of Syncro SVN Client improves support for resource locking and brings a fresh look and improved functionality of file comparison tools. Syncro SVN Client can be freely evaluated for 30 days and can be purchased for a price of USD 59.

Improved Working Copy Locks Representation

File locks in the Working Copy view are now presented using graphic symbols, which allow you to rapidly identify files with active, broken or stolen locks. Also, when synchronizing your working copy with the repository, you can see the current lock state of files in the repository, including those locked by other users.

Added Locking Support in Repositories View

Repositories view now presents the existing file locks when browsing repository content. Now you can lock or unlock files directly in the repository, using actions available in the Repositories view.

Improved File Comparison Representation and Functionality

Comparing algorithm has been improved to detect differences at a finer level of granularity. Besides the old detection of different blocks of text, Syncro SVN Client brings a second level of comparison, by directly emphasising word differences inside these blocks. Management of differences was improved by presenting an in-place widget which gives quicker access to actions which allow you to copy or replace content of the currently selected difference.

SSH Host Verification

Improved connection security when accessing for the first time a repository through SSH protocol. Now, Syncro SVN Client allows you to interrupt the connection to an untrusted SSH host.

Added Name Conflict State for Working Copy Files

Syncro SVN Client signals the existence in repository of files considered to have the same name on a case-insensitive operating system, like Microsoft Windows. These files are marked as being in a Name Conflict state in your working copy.

Component Updates

Updated SVNKit library to version 1.3.5, compatible with Subversion 1.6.15, which contains various bug fixes and improvements.

What was new in Syncro SVN Client 6.2

April 6, 2011
Version 6.2 of Syncro SVN Client focuses on improving the Repositories view, offering a new design, improved related actions workflow and an optimized repository access. Syncro SVN Client can be freely evaluated for 30 days and can be purchased for a price of USD 59.

Redesigned Repositories view

The Repositories view was redesigned to display repository resources in a filesystem-like fashion, allowing easier access to Subversion relevant information, like author name, commit date, revision number and resource size.

Repositories view workflow improvements

The contextual menu was reorganized to provide easier access to repository operations. Also, switching to the History view will automatically display the history log of the currently selected resource.

Optimized repository access

Information already acquired from the repository is reused in some cases, leading to reduced network traffic and faster operation execution times.

Important bug fixes

Fixed a series of issues, with the most severe ones affecting Mac OS X users.

What was new in Syncro SVN Client 6.1

November 23, 2010
Version 6.1 of the Syncro SVN Client improves the information presented in the Working Copy view and delivers better performance of the SVN related tasks and compare operations. Syncro SVN Client can be freely evaluated for 30 days and can be purchased for a price of USD 59.

Support for "--ignore-externals" Option

You can choose to ignore "svn:externals" definitions when exporting or checking out from repository or when updating resources in the working copy.

Working Copy Workflow Improvements

All Working Copy view modes contextual menus have the same content and structure. They are dynamically built and display only the actions which can be applied for the selected resources.

Working Copy Information Improvements

Information about the resources file type is presented in the Working Copy area in a new column, which allows you to sort the resources according to the file extension. The external and switched resources are marked consistently in all working copy presentation modes. Resources in a real conflict state are marked differently than those in pseudo-conflict state for an easier identification.

Improved Status Bar Information

The application status bar presents graphical hints corresponding to different working copy options. For example, you can determine if the ignored/deleted resources are being presented or not in the working copy or if the externals definitions are processed.

Improved Diff Editor and Integrated Diff Tool

All compare algorithms were improved, they use less memory and need a shorter amount of time to perform compare operations. The Diff Editor presents the names of the last authors who committed the compared files. More information here.

Component Updates

What was new in Syncro SVN Client 6.0

July 23, 2010
Version 6.0 of the Syncro SVN Client brings improved performance, a new application interface and a complete redesign of the Working Copy layout. Syncro SVN Client can be freely evaluated for 30 days and can be purchased for a price of USD 59.

Redesigned application layout

The application interface was changed and the Working Copy view was completely redesigned as a filesystem like layout. The Working Copy and Synchronize views were merged into a single central, easy-to-use view, allowing you to choose what SVN-related information the application displays.

Configurable Working Copy view

The information presented in the Working Copy view is customizable: you can remove or reorder the columns and sort their content according to your needs. Relevant information about incoming changes, like the author name, commit date and revision number is available at a glance.

Performance improvements

What was new in Syncro SVN Client 5.1

March 11, 2010
Version 5.1 of Syncro SVN Client improves working copy load time, automatically refreshes the working copy on external file changes, makes repository browsing more responsive, adds support for repository imports at file level, adds support for replacing resources, improves handling of obstructed resources, improves history support, allows creating branches/tags directly from the repository and offers options to print and save as image a revision graph. Syncro SVN Client can be freely evaluated for 30 days and can be purchased for a price of USD 59.

Faster working copy load time

A working copy is cached, so that its next load operation in the Working Copy view will be much faster due to reloading it from the cache.

Automatic refresh of the working copy

The working copy is automatically refreshed when changes are detected in the file system. This is done in order to update the state of the resources modified by external applications.

More responsive repository browsing

You can configure the repository connections timeout and stop non-responsive repository browsing operations.

File level repository imports

Added support for importing files into a repository.

Support for replacing working copy resources

Working copy resources can be replaced with their HEAD or BASE revision.

Better handling of obstructed resources

Operations correctly take into account obstructed resources.

Improved history support

The history of a resource deleted from the repository but which is still present in the working copy is now displayed by properly detecting the revision at which the resource was deleted.

Branch/Tag directly from the repository

The Branch/Tag action can be performed directly on the repository, without having a working copy previously checked out.

Print and save as image a revision graph

Generated revision graphs can be printed or saved as images.

What was new in Syncro SVN Client 5.0

August 11, 2009
Version 5.0 of Syncro SVN Client adds the Diff Files and Diff Directories tools, updates the main menu and toolbar actions for the Working Copy, Synchronize and Repository views, and comes with a new application toolbar for easy access to the most common SVN operations. Syncro SVN Client can be freely evaluated for 30 days and can be purchased for a price of USD 59.

Diff Files tool

This tool allows finding the differences between two local files using six different diff algorithms and applying some options like ignore whitespaces, merge adjacent differences, etc.

Diff Directories tool

This tool allows finding the differences between two sets of files that have the same names but are located in different folders. Two files with the same name can be compared with the binary content method or the last modification timestamp method.

User interface update

The menus and toolbars were changed. Some actions were added or removed in the menu bar and in the views Working Copy, Synchronize, Repository, History so that the most used actions can be accessed faster. A new toolbar was added.

Specify working copy format at checkout

Sometimes a working copy is used with more than one SVN application that may not support the latest working copy format. For compatibility with such applications the working copy format can be specified at checkout: SVN 1.4, SVN 1.5 or SVN 1.6.

Upgrade and downgrade working copy format

If the user does not want to upgrade the working copy format to the latest format he can do that later with the Upgrade action. A downgrade action is available for users who need compatibility with applications that do not support the latest working copy format.

What was new in Syncro SVN Client 4.2

May 15, 2009
Version 4.2 of Syncro SVN Client adds as main feature SVN 1.6 support. Other additions include improvements to the symbolic links handling and a better performance when working with revision graphs. Syncro SVN Client can be freely evaluated for 30 days and can be purchased for a price of USD 59.

Support for SVN 1.6

Syncro SVN Client supports SVN 1.6.2, allowing users to take advantage of the latest SVN improvements and fixes. Previous SVN versions are also supported, the user being able to decide whether a working copy should be updated to version 1.6 or not.

Tree conflicts handling

Subversion 1.6 recognizes a new kind of conflict, known as a "tree conflict". Such conflicts manifest at the level of directory structure, rather than file content. These conflicts include deletions of locally modified files and incoming edits to locally deleted files. Syncro SVN Client allows to handle these conflicts offering a dialog that lists possible solutions for solving these conflicts.

Improvements to svn:externals

Subversion 1.6 allows to link to external files by putting their URLs in the svn:externals property on the parent folder. Syncro SVN Client allows you to create, update, commit and remove external links from the user interface changing automatically the svn:externals property as needed.

Improved revision graph performance

Syncro SVN Client stores the result of a revision graph operation and reuses that for further operations on the same repository, thus avoiding unnecessary requests to the SVN server for the same data. This results in a noticeable increase in performance.

Access to network SVN file repositories

Network SVN repositories can be accessed using file URLs of the form "file://server/path".

Better handling of symbolic links

Syncro SVN Client analyses the structure created by symbolic links usage detecting and handling infinite recursions.

What was new in Syncro SVN Client 4.1

December 4, 2008
Version 4.1 of Syncro SVN Client adds a create patch wizard, a dialog for quickly resolving conflicts resulted from a merge action and considerable performance improvements. Syncro SVN Client can be freely evaluated for 30 days and can be purchased for a price of USD 59.

Create patch wizard

This wizard allows you to create two patch types: a patch between a working copy resource and a repository resource or a patch between two repository resources or two revisions of the same resource. Other options like folder depth, ignore ancestry, ignore whitespaces or include unversioned files can also be specified.

Quickly resolve conflicts resulted from a merge action

All the conflicts resulted from a merge action are listed in a dialog in which each conflict can be manually resolved or you can choose a generic action for automatically resolving all of them.

Major performance improvements

Many common SVN actions like refresh, add, revert, update, merge, show history etc. were improved so that now they perform faster. Also, on Mac and Linux computers, you can control the SVN symbolic link support. If you don't need this support, you can disable it, which results in improved performance for common actions like those above.

Scroll lock button in Console view

A Scroll lock button was added in the Console view. It disables console automatic scrolling when a SVN operation logs many messages in it. This allows the user to control the view and have enough time to read the displayed messages.

Updated the SVNKit library

The SVNKit library was updated to the latest version - 1.2.1 - that supports all Subversion 1.5.4 features.

What was new in Syncro SVN Client 4.0

September 2, 2008
Version 4.0 of Syncro SVN Client adds Subversion 1.5 features like merge tracking, sparse checkout and relative URLs for the svn:externals property and a merge wizard which simplifies the SVN merge operations. Syncro SVN Client can be freely evaluated for 30 days and can be purchased for a price of USD 59.

Support for SVN 1.5

The SVN Client has been updated to support SVN 1.5 working copies and repositories.

Merge tracking

Starting with SVN 1.5 the revision at which a branch is merged is remembered. This is useful for the next merge operation when only the changes committed to the branch after the previous merge operation are considered.

Sparse checkout

Sometimes not all the files and subdirectories of a repository are needed in a working copy. In these cases only the needed subdirectories and files can be checked out from the repository by selecting one of the following checkout depths for a directory: recursive, immediate children, file children only, this folder only.

Update to revision

A new action "Update to revision" is available in the Working Copy view. It allows updating the resources selected in the working copy to an earlier revision from the repository. The depth of the update operation on the folders can be selected from the values allowed by SVN 1.5 sparse checkout.

Relative URLs for svn:externals

The value of the svn:externals property can be specified using a relative URL as defined by SVN 1.5.

Improved merging support

A merge wizard was added to perform complex merge operations easier. Three types of merging are available: merge revision ranges, reintegrate a branch and merge two different trees. Advanced merge options can also be set.

Improved Open With action

The action works now on multiple file selection and is available in the Working Copy view, Synchronize view and Repository view.

What was new in Syncro SVN Client 3.2

June 11, 2008
Version 3.2 of Syncro SVN Client adds a set of improvements to the previous version: filtering the content of the History view based on revision number and commit date, computation of the SVN annotations on a limited range of revisions, modification of the attributes of a revision in history, configurable shortcut keys for actions, editing a conflict with an external diff application, editing of global SVN configuration files and some new comparison actions. Syncro SVN Client can be freely evaluated for 30 days and can be purchased for a price of USD 59.

Filter revisions in History view

The content of the History view can be filtered now also by revision number and commit date. In previous versions it was filtered only by author name and commit message. A Search button was added and the string entered in the search field is applied only when the button is pressed. This improves the performance of previous versions in which the filter was applied for every character entered in the search field.

Get the annotations of a specified range of revisions

When the history of a file is very long getting the annotations of a file (the author name and revision number that edited the last time each line of the file) can take a lot of time. If you need only the annotations created by a specific range of revisions you can specify a start and end revision and get only the annotations of that range.

Modify the attributes of a revision in history

When the commit message of a revision is not clear or it does not cover exactly the purpose of a committed revision this message can be modified directly in the SVN repository. Also the SVN user name that committed a revision can be modified.

Review modifications in files that will be committed

Now it is possible to review directly from the Commit dialog the modifications that are about to be committed on a file. Just double click on a file in the list of files presented in the Commit dialog for reviewing the differences between the local version and the latest version from the repository with the file diff tool.

Configurable shortcut keys

Now it is possible to set and change shortcut keys for a large set of user actions available in the views and dialogs of the application. The configurable actions are listed in the Menu Shortcut Keys panel from the Preferences dialog.

Edit conflicts with an external diff application

The external diff application that is configured for viewing the differences between two revisions of a file is used now also for editing a SVN conflict generated in a local file by updating the file from the SVN repository.

Ignore ancestry in a SVN merge operation

Usually the two trees of SVN resources are merged only if they have a common ancestry. Now the case of merging two trees that are not related by a common ancestry is also supported. This is useful for example if one of the trees was imported in the SVN repository so the common ancestry is not available.

Edit global configuration files

The SVN client tool can be configured also with the parameters set in the global SVN files called 'config' and 'servers'. These parameters are applied to all the SVN client tools that are used by the same user. These two files can be opened for editing with two edit actions available on the Options menu.

Apply the external diff tool in three-way diff actions

The external diff tool configured for two-way diff actions is applied now also in three-way diff actions: edit a conflict, compare the local version of a file with the latest version from the repository HEAD.

Compare two files selected in the Working Copy view

The differences between two files selected in the Working Copy view can be displayed with the action Compare with Each Other available on the right click menu in this view.

Compare action on a revision from history

The Affected Paths area of the History view displays both files that were only modified and files that were added together with the currently selected revision of the history. Now a compare action is available in the Affected Paths area also for added files.

Compare action on a revision of a merged file

When selecting the revision of a SVN branch that will be merged with the SVN trunk or with other SVN branch it is useful to review the differences between a revision of a file displayed in the Affected Paths area of the History dialog and the previous revision of the same file. A compare action is now available in the Affected Paths area for displaying these differences.

What was new in Syncro SVN Client 3.1

February 21, 2008
Version 3.1 of Syncro SVN Client introduces two new presentation modes in the Synchronize view (the compressed mode and the flat mode), new actions in the Working Copy view, in the History view and in the Synchronize view and a compare folders action on the revision graph of a folder. Syncro SVN Client can be freely evaluated for 30 days and can be purchased for a price of USD 59.

Compressed mode and flat mode in the Synchronize view

The compressed mode presents the SVN resources in the Synchronize view as a tree with two levels, grouping the resources by their parent folder. The flat mode presents the SVN resources as a list. These modes are useful when you want to update or commit to the SVN repository the content of a folder without going recursively into its subfolders or for obtaining the complete list of the SVN resources that need to be synchronized.

Revert the changes of a revision

In the History view it is possible to revert the changes made by a revision to a resource by selecting the revision and locating the resource in the affected paths panel and using the "Revert changes from this revision" action from the contextual menu. The changes are reverted in the current version of the file in the working copy. If the change was in fact a SVN delete operation the result will be the restoring of the deleted file in the working copy.

Get Contents action in the History view

A new action was added in the contextual menu of the History view for replacing the content of a file from the working copy with the content of a revision of that file from the history.

Compare with Branch/Tag action in the Working Copy view

This action compares the working copy version of a file with a revision from a SVN branch or tag. The branch or the tag can be easily selected using a repository browser dialog.

New External Folder action in the Working Copy view

A new external folder can be created quickly by entering the folder name and the target in a dialog that sets them in svn:externals property.

Compare two revisions of a folder directly from a revision graph

The set of changes that were committed between two revisions of a folder can be computed with an action executed directly from the revision graph of the folder. The result of this compare action is displayed in the Directory Change Set view.

Support for external SSH clients

The command line for calling an external SSH client can specify any parameter accepted by the external SSH client. The SVN username can be other than the SSH username. The SVN username can be specified separately in an authentication dialog or Syncro SVN Client will use the default SVN username set on the server for the SSH user.

What was new in Syncro SVN Client 3.0

January 15, 2008
Version 3.0 of Syncro SVN Client introduces visual editing of SVN conflicts, a view with all the changes between two revisions of a SVN folder, setting a reference revision number to the SVN repository browser. Syncro SVN Client can be freely evaluated for 30 days and can be purchased for a price of USD 59.

Visual conflict editing

An update operation may bring the local copy of a file in a conflict state. The conflict state can be resolved more quickly if the conflicts are edited visually in a compare view which presents the two conflicting versions side by side like a Diff application. In the compare view the user decides for each conflict the variant which will remain and will be finally committed to the repository: the local one, the repository one or a manually edited combination of the two variants.
video demos Play the video demonstration

Directory Change Set view

Sometimes a set with all the changes committed on any resource of a folder and its subfolders is needed. The user just selects a start revision number and an end one from the history of the folder and runs an action which gathers the set of all these changes. The Directory Change Set view presents the set of changes in a tree format. The revisions corresponding to a resource from the tree are grouped in a separate list.

What was new in Syncro SVN Client 2.6

December 3rd, 2007
Version 2.6 of Syncro SVN Client introduces a filter option in the History view, drag and drop operations in the Working Copy view, better indentation of text in the compare panel and in the editor panel with the option to configure the size of the tab character. Syncro SVN Client can be freely evaluated for 30 days and can be purchased for a price of USD 59.

Filter the revisions displayed in the History view

When a SVN resource had a long history of modifications it was difficult to locate the revisions with a commit message or author name matching a specified string. By entering this string in a filter text field the list of history entries is restricted on the fly to the set of matching entries.

Drag and drop operations in the Working Copy view

Files and folders can be dragged from other applications and dropped in the Syncro SVN Client's Working Copy view as unversioned resources. The structure of the file tree can be changed in the Working Copy view by drag and drop operations inside this view.

Better indentation of text in compare panel and editor panel

An option for specifying the number of spaces for the tab character allows you to configure the text indentation.

Password of SVN user stored correctly when the computer changes the IP address

In previous versions the password stored in the local user preferences for accessing a SVN repository was invalidated when the computer received a new IP address, for example when it was connected to a different network.

What was new in Syncro SVN Client 2.5

October 29th, 2007
Version 2.5 of Syncro SVN Client introduces the options of associating a file type with an editor and of specifying an external application for diff operations and fixes various bugs. Syncro SVN Client can be freely evaluated for 30 days and can be purchased for a price of USD 59.

Associate a file type with an editor

For each file type the associated editor which opens files of that type can be specified by choosing one of three options: the default external application installed in the operating system, a particular external application specified by the path to its executable launcher or one of the built-in editors.

Specify an external application for diff operations

If an external application is specified for diff operations in the SVN user preferences this application is preferred for all the compare operations instead of the internal diff tool.

Various bug fixes

A SSL certificate is correctly asked when a SVN server accessed by the HTTPS protocol requires such a certificate. The correct encoding is used when a file is asked directly from the SVN repository in compare operations.

What was new in Syncro SVN Client 2.4

June 6th, 2007
Version 2.4 of Syncro SVN Client allows to see the history of a resource as a history graph in which every revision of the resource is represented with a node. Syncro SVN Client can be freely evaluated for 30 days and can be purchased for a price of USD 59.

History Graph

The history of a resource can be viewed as a graph in which a node represents a revision of the resource. The icon and the background color of a node represent the operation that generated a revision. The node contains also the repository path and the revision number. The contextual menu of a graph node contains operations that can be applied directly to the revision represented by that node: open the resource, show the history in History View, compare with the HEAD revision, check out.

What was new in Syncro SVN Client 2.3

April 2nd, 2007
Version 2.3 of Syncro SVN Client allows to quickly find what happened in a project or what a user worked during a given period of time, improves the integration with bug tracking tools, adds application global ignores for unversioned resources displayed in the Working Copy view and more. Syncro SVN Client can be freely evaluated for 30 days and can be purchased for a price of USD 59.

History Filters to Quickly Find What Happened

Ever wondered what happened today in your project? Or what John worked all last week? You can get this quickly with the new filtering options from the Show History dialog. First you specify a range choosing from either predefined intervals (today, yesterday, last week, etc.), revisions or specific start/end dates and then you can filter by author.

Extensible Set of Revisions in History View and History Dialog

The set of revisions presented in the History view and the History dialog can be extended from an initial number of 50 revisions using two new buttons: get the next 50 revisions and get all revisions.

Improve the Integration with Bug Tracking Tools

The bug ID included in the Commit message is presented in the History view as a hyperlink which opens a web browser at the page of the bug when it is clicked. The URL of the web page with the bug must be configured with a SVN property.

Application Global Ignores

The unversioned resources are filtered in the Working Copy view based on ignore filters set in the SVN preferences.

Show SVN Properties for Repository Resources

The action Show SVN Properties is also available for repository resources in the Repository View and displays the properties of the selected resource in the Properties view.

Order the Repositories in the Repository View

The order of the repositories listed in the Repository view can be changed using two arrow buttons on the toolbar of the view.

What was new in Syncro SVN Client 2.2

March 5th, 2007
Version 2.2 of Syncro SVN Client adds support for SVN Annotations, integration with bug tracking tools and operations on a revision from the Affected Paths area of History view. Syncro SVN Client can be freely evaluated for 30 days and can be purchased for a price of USD 59.

Annotations View

This view enables you to quickly find the author and the revision number that changed a specific line of a file. The Annotations view is synchronized with the History view and the editor panel: clicking on a line in one of the two views or in the editor panel highlights the corresponding lines in the other two areas.

Integration with Bug Tracking Tools

Users of bug tracking systems can associate the changes they make in the repository resources with a specific ID in their bug tracking system. When the user enters a commit message, the bug ID is added to this message. The format and the location of the ID in the commit message are configured with SVN properties.

Operations on a Revision from Affected Paths

In the Affected Paths area of the History view there are available operations for opening, saving, updating, comparing and showing the history of the selected revision.

Find Next and Find Previous Actions Extended to Text Areas

The Find Next (F3) and Find Previous (Shift + F3) work also in non editable text areas, for example in the Console View, enabling quick searches without invoking the Find/Replace dialog.

Open in System Application Action

This action was added in the Working Copy view for opening the selected resource with the default application associated with that type of resource in the operating system.

What was new in Syncro SVN Client 2.1

February 14th, 2007
Version 2.1 of Syncro SVN Client adds two new actions in the Working Copy view: Relocate working copy and Switch location and also a series of enhancements and fixes. Syncro SVN Client can be freely evaluated for 30 days and can be purchased for a price of USD 59.

The Relocate Action

When the base URL of the repository is changed, for example the repository is moved to other server, the repository path of the working copy can be easily changed with this action. The action is available also for individual resources of the working copy.

The Switch Action

This action changes the location of a working copy or only an item of the working copy within the same repository. The item must be versioned in order to allow switching the repository location.

Fonts Configuration

The font family, font size and font style for the editor and the GUI components are configurable. Text antialiasing can be turned on.

File Types Configuration

File associations can be defined between a file extension and the type of editor that opens the file. If the file extension corresponds to a built-in association, for example .xml, .xsd, .xsl then the user defined association redefines the built-in one.

Encoding for Non-XML Files

For XML files there are well-known rules of encoding detection. For other file types if the encoding is not the platform's default one it needs to be specified in order to read the file correctly.

Optional Upgrade of the Working Copy Format

When a working copy in the SVN 1.3 format is loaded in the Working Copy view it can optionally be upgraded to the SVN 1.4 format.
