Release announcement for RabbitVCS v0.12!


We are excited to announce the release of RabbitVCS v0.12!

This release is a complete rewrite of v0.11, and supports nearly all Subversion functionality. In addition, we have support for more languages, have a neat command line utility to interact with our dialogs, and we have several easy to install packages.

Finally, you may have noticed our most visible change, our new name! Our eventual goal is to support multiple version control systems and to even extend other file managers and programs, so we decided on a platform-agnostic name, and our first major release with the new team seemed like the perfect time to make this change.

* Status checks are now done asynchronously and won’t lock up Nautilus
* Lots of bugs have been squashed

* Vastly improved status monitor and emblem support
* Complete rewrite of the Nautilus extension, VCS layer, and user interface
* Nearly full Subversion functionality
* Easy to install packages for Ubuntu, Debian, and Fedora
* Fully internationalized with many translations available
* Command line integration to easily launch our dialog

    Thanks for the new release. We work with many repositories and thousands of files on nfs shares. Using the ‘old’ NautilusSVN was often very painful because of the long, nautilus-freezing loading times. The new release now works nearly perfect. THANKS, THANKS, THANKS!

    Awesomeness!!! :) at last a kickass integrated svn client for linux! Using TortoiseSVN I’ve become a complete and total subversion-addict using it for every aspect of every project, code, graphics, 3d models, textures, binary release, build tools, compilers, settings, installers etc etc.. Now there is no reason whatsoever to stay in windows ^ ^
