Is Subversion client in version 1.7 supported?

In NetBeans 7.1 and older Subversion 1.7 is not fully supported.

NetBeans IDE can use three different implementations of the subversion client.

  • The default and recommended implementation is a JavaHL binding, a java API built on top of the subversion client in the form of shared libraries (*.dll on Windows, *.so on Linux). We currently support this client only in version 1.6. FaqSvnJavahl
  • If JavaHL is not available, we automatically switch to a pure java implementation of subversion client called [SvnKit] that is always available because it is bundled directly as part of a NetBeans installation.
  • The third client NetBeans can work with is the commandline client. However support for this client is outdated, we stopped supporting it when we started bundling the SvnKit. It means that certain recently implemented Subversion actions in the IDE will not work with this kind of client and the IDE might run slower because of performance issues consequent on running Subversion commands as external processes.

More information about implementing the 1.7 support can be found on wiki
