Publisher Comments:

Subversion is the most popular open-source version control system on the planet. Development teams-big and small, enterprise and open source-use this fast, feature-rich tool daily. Pragmatic Guide to Subversion presents the 48 essential tasks you need to know. It's your shortcut to the Subversion master's recommended set of best practices. With this book, you can get to the good parts quickly, and be more productive and effective.

In Pragmatic Guide to Subversion, author Mike Mason shares the features and practices that have made Subversion so successful. Each of the 48 tasks selected for the book is presented as a quick two-pager, with a succinct description on the left side and a quick reference on the right. The book is designed for experienced developers. You want to get straight to the tricks and traps you'd otherwise learn by trial and error.

Subversion started life as a command-line tool, but graphical clients are now extremely popular and can offer a lot of extra power. For every task in Pragmatic Guide to Subversion, you get to see how to carry out the task via the regular command-line client as well as the TortoiseSVN graphical client for Windows, and the Cornerstone graphical client for Mac.

Whether or not you've used other version control tools, you'll learn Subversion's popular way of working-how to access your source code, make changes, and share them with your team.

You won't find a more practical approach to learning Subversion than Pragmatic Guide to Subversion.

Synopsis:

Mason drives developers to the features and practices that have made Subversion so successful. Each of the 42 tasks selected for the book is presented as a quick two-pager, with code on the left side and a succinct description on the right.

Synopsis:

This book covers the theory behind version control and how it can help developers become more efficient, work better as a team, and keep on top of software complexity. Version control, done well, is your "undo" button for the project: nothing is final, and mistakes are easily rolled back.

This book describes Subversion 1.3, the latest and hottest open source version control system, using a recipe-based approach that will get you up and running quickly and correctly. Learn how to use Subversion the right way-the pragmatic way.

With this book, you can:

  • Keep all project assets safe--not just source code--and never run the risk of losing a great idea
  • Know how to undo bad decisions--even directories and symlinks are versioned
  • Learn how to share code safely, and work in parallel for maximum efficiency
  • Install Subversion and organize, administer and backup your repository
  • Share code over a network with Apache, svnserve, or ssh
  • Create and manage releases, code branches, merges and bug fixes
  • Manage 3rd party code safely
  • Use all the latest Subversion 1.3 features including locking and path-based security, and much more!

Now there's no excuse not to use professional-grade version control.

Synopsis:

Subversion sets the standard in version control systems. Championed by open-source developers, Subversion is behind some of today's biggest and most important software, including Apache, FreeBSD, Ruby, and MediaWiki. But more than just a tool for open-source collaboration, Subversion has made a significant impact in the corporate IT world. Most developers will now encounter Subversion source control during their career.

Each of the 42 tasks selected for the book is presented as a quick two-pager, with code on the left side and a succinct description on the right.
