Apache Subversion 1.8 preview packages

April 15th, 2013 by

RPM packages of what will become Apache Subversion 1.8 fairly soon are now available for testing on all current releases of openSUSE and SLE 11.

Note that in this release, serf will replace neon as the default HTTP library, to the extend that the latter is removed completely. I wrote about ra_serf before and added support for it in recent packages. You can test this now with either 1.7 or 1.8 if you are concerned about performance in your network. Please note that for servers running httpd and mod_dav_svn, increasing MaxKeepAliveRequests is highly recommended.

Update: Apache Subversion 1.8 is now released. You can find maintained packages via the software search in the devel:tools:scm:svn project. This will be part of the next release of openSUSE.
