Syncro Soft's Syncro SVN Client Available

Syncro Soft has announced the immediate availability of Syncro SVN Client, a platform-independent Subversion client aimed at giving Subversion repository users a high quality user interface. Syncro SVN Client is released under the 2.0 version because it was initially developed as an embedded component in oXygen XML Editor and starting with version 8.1 of the editor it is available also as a separate product.

Syncro SVN Client makes easier the document and code sharing between content authors or developers. It offers full SVN repository support: checkout, export, import, copy, mkdir, rename, branch, tag and delete. The front-end allows you to browse repositories, check for changes, commit changes, update your working copy and examine the revision history. There is no need to install separate applications like a Subversion command line client or a file compare tool.

Syncro SVN Client is composed of several views allowing you to browse the Subversion repositories and your local working copies, compare and merge modifications, check the revision history. All the views are dockable, this means you can position them to create the optimal layout for your use case.

The Subversion Repository Browsing view allows you to add multiple SVN repositories to the list and browse them in parallel. In this way you can identify the resources you need to checkout, or even create branches or tags directly in the repository.

In the synchronize view you can see the overall status of your working copy resources when compared to the repository resources. The view focuses on incoming and outgoing changes, where incoming changes are the changes that other users have committed since you last updated your working copy. The outgoing changes are the modifications you made to your working copy as a result of editing, removing or adding resources. One of the most common requirements in project development is to see what changes have been made to the files from your working copy or to the files from the repository. You can examine these changes after a synchronize operation with the repository, by using the Open in compare editor action.

Other features include a SVN Properties view that allows you to change all the standard SVN properties and also to define your own properties, support for multiple communication protocols like SSL and HTTP/HTTPS, a visual diff/merge tool for comparing images.
