Subversion may now be accessible via webfolders

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on June 14, 2005 02:34 PM
As of version 1.2, Subversion now supports "auto-versioning", which basically means that integrated DAV clients (like IE's webfolders and the OSX finder) may be clients for subversion. Saving a file in your webfolder, for instance, would correspond to checking in a change. While you cannot view the revision details, this may allow for transparent use from other applications.

I've only performed minimal testing, so I cannot say how well this works.

"In informal tests, we've had success reading and writing to Subversion repositories via Windows Web Folders, OS X Finder, Gnome Nautilus, KDE Konqueror, and other DAV clients."
