Syncro Soft Announces New Release of Syncro SVN Client

Syncro Soft, the producer of Syncro SVN Client, has announced the immediate availability of version 4.2 of its Subversion (SVN) client. Version 4.2 of Syncro SVN Client adds as main feature SVN 1.6 support. Other additions include improvements to the symbolic links handling and a better performance when working with revision graphs.

New in version 4.2

Syncro SVN Client supports SVN 1.6.2, allowing users to take advantage of the latest SVN improvements and fixes. Previous SVN versions are also supported, the user being able to decide whether a working copy should be updated to version 1.6 or not.

Subversion 1.6 recognizes a new kind of conflict, known as a "tree conflict". Such conflicts manifest at the level of directory structure, rather than file content. These conflicts include deletions of locally modified files and incoming edits to locally deleted files. Syncro SVN Client allows to handle these conflicts offering a dialog that lists possible solutions for solving these conflicts.

Subversion 1.6 allows to link to external files by putting their URLs in the svn:externals property on the parent folder. Syncro SVN Client allows you to create, update, commit and remove external links from the user interface changing automatically the svn:externals property as needed.

Syncro SVN Client stores the result of a revision graph operation and reuses that for further operations on the same repository, thus avoiding unnecessary requests to the SVN server for the same data. This results in a noticeable increase in performance.

Syncro SVN Client can be run on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Solaris.
