Source Releases

We provide source code distributions in a variety of archive types. Generally, speaking, Windows users should download .zip files. Users of all other operating systems should download .tar.gz or .tar.bz2 files.

Please note that the dependencies distribution subversion-deps-* is no longer available in 1.7 and later. See The 1.7 release notes for details and alternatives.

Supported Release(s)

In addition to the recommended release, we generally support the latest release from at least one prior release stream for security-related bugfixes only. The currently supported older releases are as follows:

The following releases are offered for pre-release testing. The usual caveats apply, including the fact that there are known issues, and no upgrade path is promised for APIs and on-disk files (working copies and repositories) between the pre-releases and the final release.

Please report any issues to users@subversion.apache.org.

Release archives

Looking for previous releases of Subversion? All Subversion releases are available for download from the Apache distribution archive. Please note that, with the exception of our recommended and other supported releases, distributions of Subversion found in the archives are not supported by the community. If you require support for an older version of Subversion, and are not able to upgrade to a newer version, consider contacting a commercial Subversion support vendor.

Verifying the Integrity of Downloaded Files

It is essential that you verify the integrity of the downloaded files using the PGP signatures and/or file checksums. Please read Verifying Apache HTTP Server Releases for more information on why you should verify our releases. (The same rationale applies to Subversion as to HTTP Server.)

The PGP signatures can be verified using PGP or GPG. First download the KEYS as well as the asc signature file for the particular distribution. Make sure you get these files from the main distribution directory, rather than from a mirror. Then verify the signatures as follows:

% pgpk -a subversion.asc
% pgpv subversion-1.8.0.tar.gz.asc
% pgp -ka subversion.asc
% pgp subversion-1.8.0.tar.gz.asc
% gpg --import subversion.asc
% gpg --verify subversion-1.8.0.tar.gz.asc

Alternatively, you can verify at least the SHA1 checksum on the files. A unix program called sha1 or sha1sum is included in many unix distributions. It is also available as part of GNU Textutils.
