Subversion support?

Hi all,

I know from experience that IDEA has great CVS integration. However, most people are going to move to Subversion. Anyone know if IntelliJ is planing to support Subversion in the near future? We are migrating all projects to Subversion this spring.

I know there is a Subversion plug-in at the Tigris site, but I'd rather like real integration.

Thanks.

The current subversion plugin in the plugin manager doesn't work with
recent EAPs either.

Ages ago I started work integrating Jsvn into IDEA but I got sidelined
with other projects, but keep meaning to pick it up again, although the
more I look at it, the way Jsvn worked you don't really want to integrate
the "desktop app", it really wants to take full advantage of the VCS API,
which I believe is what the one in the plugin manager was doing...

Try find the source, and maybe you could spark a revolution...

you mean the subversion source? it's at tigris.


me to want SVN support - CVS is going to die slowly as Subversion gains ground.


IntelliJ should look into it since SVN makes refactoring more sensible

The plugin source, not subversion source.

The current problem with subversion is thats its still quite volatile,
changes have slowed down alot, but theres still the odd mention of "with
this update, you need to export your repo, update, reimport the repo, then
recheck out ALL your code as the formats have changed".

For large projects thats still something I'm not willing to subject my
team to.

Slowly, and very slowly... People arn't just going to switch "like that"

Actually, Subversion is feature/API stable now and has a final release date 23. feb (soon!)

It has already gained heavy adoption, mainly because it's so similar to CVS, yet solves so many problems with CVS.

In fact, the latest release, 0.37, is their first Release Candidate.

Ciao,

Yup, and it works darn good. We use TortoiseSVN as a client right now, but IntelliJ integration wrt. refactoring would be super.

Cool, I had noticed it was settling down, but I unsubbed from the lists
awhile ago as the volume was getting too high.

I unsubbed too, but I periodically read the archives:
