WANdisco Announces Support for Mac OS X Certified Subversion BinariesYet Another New Platform Has Been Added to the World's Most Comprehensive Set of Free Fully Tested Subversion Downloads (June 02, 2011)
SAN RAMON, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 06/02/11 -- WANdisco, a leading provider of Apache Subversion-based software and services for the enterprise, today announced that it has made WANdisco certified Subversion binaries for Mac OS X available for free download at: http://www.wandisco.com/subversion/os/downloads. WANdisco's certified Subversion binaries provide a complete, fully tested version of Subversion based on the most recent stable release, including the latest fixes. uberSVN -- WANdisco's new open ALM platform for Subversion that's had thousands of downloads since it was launched on April 21 -- will be available on the Mac OS X platform in the very near future.
These freely available, certified Subversion 1.6.17 binaries work with Mac OS X 10.5.x and Mac OS X 10.6.x on PPC and Intel 32 and 64 bit architectures. This free software has undergone the same rigorous quality assurance process that WANdisco uses for its Enterprise products that support the world's largest Subversion deployments with over 40,000 users, 2500 repositories and 18 million transactions per day in a single implementation. Free community support for WANdisco's certified Subversion binaries is available with registration at: www.svnforum.org.
Pure Subversion Software Integrates Easily Without any Vendor Lock in Tricks
WANdisco doesn't pollute Subversion with any other software that users don't really need. If you want pure Subversion then WANdisco has the most comprehensive set of pure, fully tested Subversion binaries available for free download.
Users aren't forced down the path of using proprietary defect trackers or any other software that they're not currently using with Subversion. WANdisco's certified Subversion binaries can be easily integrated with any other open source or closed source software used with Subversion. Customers that combine a WANdisco Subversion support contract with WANdisco's certified Subversion binaries have the added benefit of automated access to the latest fixes and updates.
Buy a Support Contract and Support Subversion!
WANdisco's profits from the sale of its Subversion support contracts go directly toward the hiring of additional Subversion committers and supporting the activities of the community. Due to the success of its Subversion support services offerings, WANdisco has been able to hire senior Subversion committers such as Hyrum Wright, Julian Foad, Phillip Martin, Stefan Kung and others who have come on board recently.
Enterprise-Class Subversion Support Services
WANdisco's Subversion support services are backed by a dedicated team of core Subversion development, QA and support professionals based at the company's offices in the US and the UK. As a result, all of WANdisco's Subversion support customers have access to secure, high quality live support and immediate fixes on a 24-by-7 basis regardless of where they're located. This is critical when problems arise and it's the reason so many organizations that want the same level of support available with commercial enterprise software switch to WANdisco. The team is led by Hyrum Wright, WANdisco's Director of Open Source. Hyrum has also been the release manager for the Subversion project since early 2008.
