History of AnkhSVN
AnkhSVN started as Arild Fines' final year development project at
the Engineering Faculty of the Oslo College in Norway. Karl Fogel (one
of the Subversion “originals”) was Arild’s outside mentor.
Arild continued the project while pursuing a master's degree in Informatics
at the University of Oslo. Nowadays, AnkhSVN is a true open source project
under an Apache-style license.
In Februari 2008 the decision was made to rewrite the AnkhSVN engine to
create a full Source Code Control Package (SCC) for Visual Studio 2005, 2008
(and later versions) on top of the new SharpSvn library. The new engine
will be the base of the new 2.X releases which saw its initial release in
June 2008. This new version integrates deeply in Visual Studio to give better
performance, stability and usability. The new Pending Changes window gives an
up-to-date overview of all your project actions and provides easy access to
most subversion commands.
Development of the 2.X series continues and more and more of the original
planned and user suggested features are added. Currently the focus is on
usability and tree conflicts. Daily builds of the work in progress are
always available on our daily page.
CollabNet hosts and supports the AnkhSVN project with the goal to accelerate
growth of the AnkhSVN community and adoption by development organizations around
the world. CollabNet also contributes code to the project. AnkhSVN is licensed
under the Apache 2.0 license.
