CollabNet has introduced CollabNet Subversion Edge, a distribution that combines Subversion, Apache, and ViewVC with a Web-based management interface. The GUI is designed to simplify installation, administration, use, and governance of the entire software stack. A built-in update mechanism notifies users when new software components are available and allows users to install the updates directly from the Web-based UI.
CollabNet Subversion Edge is open source software that is licensed under the terms of the GNU Affero General Public License (AGPLv.3), an approved open source license. Free downloads of the beta version are available immediately. General availability is expected later this summer.
CollabNet Subversion Edge includes a certified bundle of all the software components of a fully functioning, Apache-based Subversion stack, eliminating the need to search the Web for software versions that work together. The graphical, Web-based administration console installs, manages, and updates the entire stack, eliminating guesswork and saving hours of frustration.
The GUI makes it easy to perform common administrative tasks, such as creating and managing Subversion repositories, starting and stopping the Subversion server, and monitoring server health. Logs are automatically rotated and archived, and an integrated auto-update feature notifies users when compatible updates are available for any of the components of the distribution and enables installation of the updates from the Web browser.
