Updated subversion packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
Subversion (SVN) is a concurrent version control system which enables one or more users to collaborate in developing and maintaining a hierarchy of files and directories while keeping a history of all changes.
- Previously, properties were lost when merging new files from a foreign repository in Subversion. The underlying source code has been patched to fix this bug, and newly added files retain their properties after a foreign repository merge, as expected.
- Prior to this update, enabling memcached caching with a Subversion server on Red Hat Enterprise Linux led to excessive socket use, which had a detrimental performance impact. This bug has been fixed, and server performance no longer suffers in this configuration.
Users of subversion are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
