I've posted the updated notes from this morning's Testing Legacy Code presentation at SD Best Practices. This is one of two new talks I'm delivering at this conference. (The other is tomorrow's talk on Test Driven Web Apps with FitNesse) and I think it went pretty well. We had a large and enthusiastic audience that asked lots of interesting questions and brought up a number of personal experiences. I may give this talk again at SD West in Santa Clara in March, though that's not definite yet.

Subversion 1.4.0, an open source version control system designed to replace CVS, has been released. 1.4.0 adds an svnsync commandline tool for repository replication, support for BerkeleyDB 4.4, and various optimizations and bug fixes.
