Subversion, a version control system which aims to be a compelling
replacement for CVS, has been updated in the Cygwin net distribution to
This is a new upstream feature release.
The release notes (*well worth reading*) are here:
A couple of minor caveats:
1) One of the new features is versioning of symlinks. One of the automated
tests of this feature is fails on Cygwin. I'll look into this in time.
2) Subversion 1.1 may fail to understand UNC (\\server\share) paths in some
cases where Subversion 1.0 would work. A fix is being discussed on the
Subversion lists at the moment. If this is a showstopper for you, you may
want to wait for a fix before upgrading from 1.0.x.
To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page. This downloads setup.exe to your
system. Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.
If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list at: email@example.com . I would appreciate it if you would
use this mailing list rather than emailing me directly.
If you want to make a point or ask a question, the Cygwin mailing list
is the appropriate place. This includes ideas and comments about the
setup utility or Cygwin in general.
