It’s cross-platform – SmartSVN runs on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X, so you can continue using the operating system (OS) that works the best for you. It can also be integrated into your OS, via Mac’s Finder Integration or Windows Shell.
Everything you need, out of the box – SmartSVN comes complete with all the tools you need to manage your Subversion projects:
Conflict solver – this feature combines the freedom of a general, three-way-merge with the ability to detect and resolve any conflicts that occur during the development lifecycle.
File compare – this allows you to make inner-line comparisons and directly edit the compared files.
Built-in SSH client – allows users to access servers using the SSH protocol. This security-conscious protocol encrypts every piece of communication between the client and the server, for additional protection.
A complete view of your project at a glance – the most important files (such as conflicted, modified or missing files) are placed at the top of the file list. SmartSVN also highlights which directories contain local modifications, which directories have been changed in the repository, and whether individual files have been modified locally or in the central repo. This makes it easy to get a quick overview of the state of your project.
Fully customizable – maximize productivity by fine-tuning your SmartSVN installation to suit your particular needs: Change keyboard shortcuts, write your own plugin with the SmartSVN API, group revisions to personalize your display, create Change Sets, and alter the context menus and toolbars to suit you. You can learn more about customizing SmartSVN at our ‘5 Ways to Customize SmartSVN’ blog post.
Comprehensive bug tracker support – Trac and JIRA are both fully supported.
Multitude of support options – SmartSVN users have access to a range of free support, from refcards to blogsand documentation, the SmartSVN forum and a Twitter account maintained by our open source experts. If you need extra support with your SmartSVN installation, expert email support is included with SmartSVN Professional licenses.
