    Subversion 1.7

    Probably a trivial question:

    Why - even when I've updated with apt-get - is my default subversion install version 1.6.17... when 1.7 was released in October last year?

    If there's a good reason that the latest Ubuntu bundled version is a 1.6? I've found stuff on the net about installing non-standard PPAs for 1.7... but I'm hesitant about plumbing for something non-standard...

    For me, reliability trumps having the latest features - but, all the same, I'd prefer to be using the most up-to-date software if possible.

    Is there a good reason that 1.7 is not offered as default?

    There seems to have been a delay in packaging due to lack of resource. It was released to debian unstable in June. See here for details. I don't know, but I wouldn't think it would get into 12.10.

    Thanks for the info, I guess - at least - I now know that it's not something peculiar to my install.

    I have to say, however, I'm surprised that packages for such a widely used tool have not been kept up-to-date... I didn't expect that.
