Status: stable 3 years ago

This update includes the latest stable release of Apache Subversion 1.8, version 1.8.15. This update fixes two security issues:

User-visible changes:

Client-side bugfixes:

  • gpg-agent: fix crash with non-canonical $HOME
  • document svn:autoprops
  • cp: fix 'svn cp ^/A/D/H@1 ^/A' to properly create A
  • resolve: improve conflict prompts for binary files
  • ls: improve performance of '-v' on tag directories
  • improved Sqlite 3.8.9 query performance regression on externals
  • fixed issue 4580: 'svn -v st' on file externals reports "?" instead of user and revision after 'svn up'

Client-side and server-side bugfixes:

  • fix a segfault with old style text delta

Server-side bugfixes:

  • fsfs: reduce memory allocation with Apache
  • mod_dav_svn: emit first log items as soon as possible
  • mod_dav_svn: use LimitXMLRequestBody for skel-encoded requests
  • mod_dav_svn: do not ignore skel parsing errors
  • detect invalid svndiff data earlier
  • prevent possible repository corruption on power/disk failures
  • fixed issue 4577: Read error with nodes whose DELTA chain starts with a PLAIN rep
  • fixed issue 4531: server-side copy (over dav) is slow and uses too much memory

Bindings bugfixes:

  • swig: fix memory corruption in svn_client_copy_source_t

Developer-visible changes:


  • avoid failing some tests on versions of Python with a very old sqlite
  • fix Ruby tests so they don't use the users real configuration


  • swig-pl: fix some stack memory problems
