Changelog for AgentSVN versions

Post by rdojr » Wed Jul 08, 2015 10:06 pm

Is there a changelog maintained for new versions of AgentSVN? Is it accessible via the website?

Thanks,
Don Olliver

Hi Don,

Unfortunately there is no change log and the reason for this is two fold.

Firstly I was a bit lazy in not keeping track of the change history ;)

But secondly, Agent SVN is really not like most other software, in that very few, if any news features get added with each new release. Instead Agent SVN just has to implement a predefined interface (i.e. the MS-SCCI) and as such most fixes involve improving the way Agent SVN implements that interface.

This basically means the latest version should always be the best version since it in theory it should have the best implementation of the MS-SCCI.

Cheers Jussi

Thank you Jussi. It would be useful to know if new changes impact a specific development platform, e.g. Visual Studio or PowerBuilder.

It would be useful to know if new changes impact a specific development platform, e.g. Visual Studio or PowerBuilder.
The code is common for all platforms so every change impacts all platforms.

Now, as it turns out, Agent SVN is quite popular as a SCM for PowerBuilder, so many of the changes and enhancements are specifically for PowerBuilder users. For example the status cache option was added specifically to fix a PowerBuilder status performance issues.

While Visual Studio did not suffer from the same issues, that cache option is also available to Visual Studio and all other MS-SCCI users.

Cheers Jussi
