Software Update: TortoiseSVN 1.6.2

Version 1.6.2 of TortoiseSVN was released on Saturday. This program is a user interface for Subversion, which is used by developers to perform version control. This is almost indispensable when several people are working on a project. TortoiseSVN integrates itself as a shell extension into Windows and can be used on its own or in combination with an ide. Version 1.6.2 of TortoiseSVN ships with Subversion 1.6.2. The changelog of this release only shows bug fixes:

Bug fixed:

  • Error message about non-LF commit messages when using messages with non-ASCII text.
  • Dragging files/folders from the repository browser or the status list control to the explorer could result in a DEP exception.
  • The pathList passed to CheckCommit() only contained the parent folder for recursive commits, not all selected items.
  • TortoiseMerge duplicated the last line when saving UCS-2 files.
  • Using a commit message from the history could result in an error about “only numbers are allowed” when trying to commit.
  • Stealing a lock failed when using serf instead of neon.
  • Segfault in TSVNCache.
  • The merge dialog always used the wc url as the default.
  • The pathlist in the OnCommitFinished() method did not contain all committed paths.
  • Copy-to-wc from the repository browser didn’t work for single files/folders.
  • Comparing revisions in the log dialog before a rename returned an error.
  • The context menu in TortoiseBlame was shown on the wrong monitor in multi-monitor setups.
  • Saving the revision graph as a wmf file when the stripes option was activated resulted in an invalid file.
  • interactive merging of binary files always left the file conflicted, ignoring the “Use local” and/or “Use repository” buttons.
  • TSVN didn’t work on Win2k if it wasn’t fully updated and IE6 installed.
  • The options button in the settings dialog to add an IBugTraqProvider was only shown the first time and invisible the next times.
  • the IBugTraqProviders were not used if only set with the bugtraq:provideruuid but the providers were never configured in the settings dialog.
  • Importing files by dragging them onto the repository browser didn’t work on Vista.
  • Failed externals weren’t treated as errors in the autoclose setting for the progress dialog.
  • Setting the external diff by mime-type didn’t work for longer mime-types.
  • Excluding the context menu from showing for certain paths didn’t work for the explorer tree view, only the list view.
  • Warnings were shown repeatedly when updating multiple folders at once and a conflict in one update happened.
  • Deadlock in the TSVNCache.exe process.
