2008/07/05 – Announcing Release 0.7.2 of SCPlugin!
I’ve just put up the final release of 0.7.2, in the usual place. This release makes major improvements in user name / password handling, appearance, and personalization, and now supports your choice of Subversion 1.4.6 or 1.5.0. I encourage all users to upgrade. See the announcement for full details.

I have to say, after using Mercurial for a bit, I think distributed version control is pretty neat stuff. As Subversion tests a finalÂ release candidate for 1.5Â (which features limited merge-tracking abilities), thereâ€™s a bit of angst going on in the Subversion developer community about what exactly the future of Subversion is. Mercurial and Git are everywhere, getting more popular all the time (certainly among theÂ 20%Â trailblazers). What role does Subversion â€” a â€œbest of breedâ€ centralized version control system â€” have in a world where everyone is slowly moving to decentralized systems? Subversion has clearly accomplished the mission we established back in 2000 (â€to replace CVSâ€). But you canâ€™t hold still. If Subversion doesnâ€™t have a clear mission going into the future, it will be replaced by something shinier. It might be Mercurial or Git, or maybe something else. Ideally, Subversion would replace itself. If we were to design Subversion 2.0, how would we do it?
Last week one of our developers wrote an elegant email that summarizes a potential new mission statement very well. You should reallyÂ read the whole thing here. Hereâ€™s a nice excerpt:
This is an interesting article on the Semantic Web, and where news feeds appear to be going.
Wikis, mashups, social networking, and even Second Life can have a place in business, but they need to improve legacy interoperability–and IT needs to overcome its skepticism.
A-Grade Browser Support is probably what we should adopt, as well.
TinyMCE is a powerful WYSIWYG editor control for web browsers such as MSIE or Mozilla that enables the user to edit HTML contents in a more user friendly way. The editor control is very flexible and it’s built for integration purposes (usage within systems like Intranets, CMS, and LMS, for example).
This is the Text Editor available for WordPress posting (Visual Edit mode). Pretty neat. Perhaps we’ll add a few items…
Here’re some more interesting TinyMCE links:

- TinyMCE: Configuration/valid elements
Perhaps, if I can ever find some time, I’ll be able to play around with this stuff.
Here’s a funny article about a story comparing installing Windows on a Mac vs. on a Sony Vaio…
This is a fairly useful script to upload ssh authorized keys to remote servers.
