Subversion 1.0.9 has been released. Subversion is an open source version control system designed to replace CVS, the open source version control system we've all learned to hate. According to the announcement

This is a bugfix release in the 1.0.x line. Baring a security or data loss issue, this will be the last release in the 1.0.x line.

The most notable fix in this release is a solution for a performance regression that was introduced by the 1.0.8 release. Users using 'svn ls' or browsing functionality via DAV against a 1.0.8 server will notice slower response times. This release resolves this issue.

The 1.1.0 release also has the same issue. We will be releasing a 1.1.1 release soon which will resolve (among other issues) the same problem for the 1.1.x line.

The NetBeans Project has posted the second alpha release of a profiler based on Sun Labs' JFluid. It can profile memory and CPU usage. New features in this release include a threads timeline, attach using PID on Windows, and various usability enhancements and bug fixes. NetBeans 3.6 is required.
