Subject Subversion 1.6.18 released
Date Thu, 12 Apr 2012 13:15:17 GMT
I'm happy to announce the release of Apache Subversion 1.6.18.

This is a maintenance release which fixes known issues in the 1.6 release
series. Most importantly, several defects which can lead to FSFS repository
corruption have been fixed.

Known issues in this release are:

  - The regression test suite has not been updated to cope with APR
    hash order randomisation introduced in APR-1.4.6. Running the test
    suite with APR-1.4.6 can result in spurious test failures due to
    randomised output ordering. Apart from these test suite problems,
    Subversion 1.6.18 works fine with APR-1.4.6.
    Users who run the test suite to verify compiled binaries and have
    difficulties with recognizing spurious test failures should consider
    using APR 1.4.5 instead. Please note that the subversion-deps archive
    which accompanies the Subversion 1.6.18 release includes APR-1.4.6.

 - The 1.6.18 release artifacts include a www/ subdirectory which
   contains HTML source files of the project's former website at This was an oversight during packaging.
   Because of this, the 1.6.18 release archives are slightly larger
   than those of previous 1.6.x releases. We apologise for any extra
   electrons being pushed around for no good reason.

If another 1.6.x release is made, both of the above problems will be
fixed in that release.

Note that 1.6.18 is not an Apache-branded release. While it is linked
from the above download page for convenience, it is actually distributed
