Start using SVN 1.7 with IntelliJ IDEA 11.1, EAP build 116.32

Irina Chernushina

New IntelliJ IDEA 11.1 EAP build (116.32) is available with Subversion 1.7 support finally built in. Here are some details on the current implementation.

We don’t perform automatic upgrade of your working copies to version 1.7, you can easily do it manually (Changes | Subversion Working Copies | Change).

For big working copies, we noticed that command line client works significantly faster comparing to svnkit library, so we added an option (Settings | Version Control | Subversion) to use it for local status calculation and update (in case when HTTP protocol is used).

Also Subversion properties changes are shown directly in Show Diff dialog now.
properties diff

If you encounter any issues please report them to our bug tracker.

Download the new build or install it via ‘Check for Updates’ and check out the full release notes for build 116.32.

Also, we included an option into commit dialog to auto-update after commit.

It will help to avoid having your working copy in a mixed-revision state (see details).

– Being in mixed-revision state might affect how moves and renames of folders are done
(items in revisions different than the moved subtree root will be tracked separately, which can be confusing)
– Merge will now fail with an error if the merge target is a mixed-revision working copy
– Also, you will never get 409 conflict because of your own changes (

However, for big projects, or some special cases like a temporally broken project, you might not want to auto-update each time you commit.

    There is no update and restart option for the patch upgrade on the Mac but there is on Windows. Bug?

    No update option for linux either (At least not for Ubuntu 11.10).
    IntelliJ is still at version 11.0.2.

    Do you plan to make it available for 11.0.1 (I have build 111.167, Ultimate Edition)? If yes, when it is expected. If no, what can I do to have it as soon as possible (upgrade?)Thanks!

    IntelliJ IDEA 11.1 is coming out later this month, no more updates for 11.0.x are planned.

    Hello all,

    I tried out the updated svn support. Works great….except that this build is unable to find the ssh tunnel spec I have in my .subversion files. I’ve had this spec forever and works fine with every version of Intellij up to this EAP release.

    Something is amiss, so please have a look.

    Hi, we have large repository and the check out time are very slow when using IntelliJ 11.1.1/svnkit.
    The acceleration with command line client works well for Update/Status commands. Would you be able to extend the acceleration to the checkout command as well.
