CollabNet has announced the availability of a beta version of Subversion Edge, a new Subversion distribution which features a Web-interface that reduces deployment and administration time. The release also includes the ViewVC repository viewer, and the Apache Web server.
[login] “What’s clear is that Subversion installation, administration, security and governance have historically been command-line-driven, requiring special expertise and up-to-the-minute knowledge,” said CollabNet CEO Bill Portelli. “Responding to this challenge, we created CollabNet Subversion Edge, with an elegant user interface, automated configuration and update notifications that will revolutionize Subversion deployment.”
The version control software is released under the GNU Affero General Public License v3, and final code should become available later this summer.
