Software Update: TortoiseSVN 1.6.4

TortoiseSVN version 1.6.4 was released a few days ago. 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 1.6.4 of TortoiseSVN ships with Subversion 1.6.4 and was released to cope with a security issue. The changelog further shows the following changes and improvements:


  • Improved startup performance of the log cache.
  • The check state in the commit dialog is now preserved unconditionally after a failed commit.
  • When marking files as resolved, only text files are now first checked for maybe still existing conflict markers.

Bug fixed:

  • The export dialog showed the wrong url when exporting from the log dialog.
  • The /fromurl parameter for the merge dialog was not used if the option “use wc url as from: url” was not set.
  • In the log dialog, the context menu for a changed file could show the wrong item as the default action.
  • The autocompletion in the commit dialog didn’t show all possible entries.
  • parsing of php files for autocompletion didn’t work.
  • After a merge, the “finished” message was not shown.
  • Compression was not enabled for http(s) connections.
  • The statistics dialog could show wrong average numbers.
