subversion support

Does 5.0 support subversion svk or just regular subversion? Or is there no difference from idea's pov?

I'm internally debating over the upgrade and this is one of the things that may push me over the edge!

Given that IDEA uses a pure java SVN stack, it doesn't. My
understanding is that svk is written in perl and wraps over/around
subversion and the svn database?

At least the initial version did I think....

IDEA 5.0 (and 6.0) supports only regular subversion, not svk, unfortunately. While these two systems share the same storage systems, one must keep in mind that they're not the same. Sure, svk plays really nice with svn, but it's still a completly different VCS, and I'd love to see svk support in IDEA.

That being said, you can use a regular subversion client to access you svk depot, provided that you don't ever touch mirrored paths. In other words, you'll be able to checkout from a local branch, work on it, and commit to it. To pull from and push to mirrored paths, however, you'll have to drop down to the command line.

So, without further ado, please vote: http://jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEA-8335
