Hello,

For now, there is no explicit date set to release Syncro SVN Client with SVN 1.8 support. This is the current status:
  1. SVN 1.8 support: work-in-progress;
    Our application recognizes and works with SVN 1.8 working copies and most of the operations behave properly. But, there are still other operations to be tested (and updated, if needed) against SVN 1.8, since it came with some changes and restrictions regarding some of them.
    Finally, all changes must pass through a testing period, when our testing team will try to spot any overlooked issues.
  2. Not all SVN 1.8 new features will be supported from the first build (some of them will be added in future releases), but the base functionality will be maintained/updated as necessary.
  3. The library we use for Subversion related operations had a delay in supporting SVN 1.8 (official support was available starting with end of November 2013) and it does not support SVN 1.7 at this time. We know that not all our users are ready to move to SVN 1.8, so we expect back support for SVN 1.7 (which is in progress, probably shipping this March).
    Thus, we also need to make sure we maintain compatibility with SVN 1.7 after updating our application to support SVN 1.8.

As a prediction, in the best-case scenario we could release Syncro SVN Client with SVN 1.8 support this Spring (possibly in April). What I can tell for sure:
  • support for SVN 1.8 will ship with Syncro SVN Client 10 (all previous versions will not include support for SVN 1.8 );
  • we intend to drop support for SVN 1.6 and older versions. Users needing SVN 1.6 will have to use older Syncro SVN Client versions (up to 9.x) because of the many behavior differences between SVN 1.6 (and older) and SVN 1.7/1.8, that require too much effort to maintain compatibility (additional code to overcome SVN 1.6 limitations, additional testing against SVN 1.6 and so on).

Best Regards,
