Ten Reasons to Upgrade Your Subversion Server

In the earliest days of Subversion Edge, when we were planning out the short and long term roadmap for the product, the one true release defining feature for the first release was an integrated web-based update feature.  We wanted to have a way to easily notify you of available updates and let you install those updates right from your web browser without needing direct access to the server itself.

To help extend the benefits of cloud development beyond the team level, we have drawn from our years of experience and worked with customers, partners and industry influencers …
