Subject The Apache Software Foundation Announces Apache® Subversion® v1.11.0
Date Wed, 31 Oct 2018 10:01:17 GMT
[this announcement is available online at https://s.apache.org/N3fL ]

Popular Open Source version control system used by millions across an array of applications
worldwide.

Wakefield, MA —31 October 2018— The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), the all-volunteer
developers, stewards, and incubators of more than 350 Open Source projects and initiatives,
announced today Apache® Subversion® v1.11.0, the latest version of the popular centralized
software version control system.

Apache Subversion is characterized by its reliability as a safe haven for valuable data; the
simplicity of its model and usage; and its ability to support the needs of a wide variety
of users and projects, from individuals to large-scale enterprise operations.

"Subversion 1.11 is the first release which follows our new six-month release cycle," said
Stefan Sperling, Vice President of Apache Subversion. "Subversion 1.11 provides iterative
improvements of features released in Subversion 1.10, and will be supported for six months."

Apache Subversion v1.11.0 highlights include:

 - More robust shelving of changes in the working copy;
 - Interactive conflict resolution supports more conflict situations involving moved files
and directories; and
 - New command to write out a view specification describing the current working copy shape.

Based on the new release cycle, Apache Subversion 1.10 is now considered a long-term support
(LTS) release, with a planned support period of four years. The next LTS release will be Subversion
1.14, which is anticipated 18 months from now.

"Our new release plan gives users who value stability plenty of time to schedule upgrades
between LTS releases, while users who prefer quick access to new features will be able to
get updated approximately every 6 months," added Sperling. "Several new client-side features
are marked ‘experimental’ in this 1.11 release. We encourage all our users to test these
features and provide feedback."

Availability and Oversight
Apache Subversion software is released under the Apache License v2.0 and is overseen by a
self-selected team of active contributors to the project. A Project Management Committee (PMC)
guides the Project's day-to-day operations, including community development and product releases.
