SVN 1.7, TortoiseSVN and CollabNet 2.1.0 released earlier this week

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/10/14

Right after the Subversion SVN 1.7 release earlier this week, 3rd party providers announced new versions of their products too.

These are the updates of the ones I use most often:

Two major improvements for me:

  1. Improved meta data (read: only one .svn directory in the root of a working copy)
  2. Faster HTTP speed

Please also read Uwe Schuster‘s (the guy that implemented the version control integration for SVN and Git in the Delphi IDE) blog post on a few things you need to watch when upgrading to Tortoise SVN 1.7.

Running OS X Lion 10.7 on VMware Workstation 7.1.4 and 8.0 (via: How to Install Retail OS X 10.6 under VMware Workstation or Player – InsanelyMac Forum)

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/10/14

This might not be strictly legal, but it is supposed to be possible to run the retail OS X Lion 10.7 under VMware Workstation 8 (or VMware Fusion 4) and VMware Workstation 7.1.4 (or VMware Player 3.1.4) on a regular PC (if that PC Supports VT) running Windows 7 x64.

Since Apple MacBook still don’t come with a TrackPoint (and having suffered from RSI, that is about the only pointing device I can use) there are only two options for me:

  1. Go the route described above
  2. Use an external USB TrackPoint keyboard with a Mac
    (traveling with a huge external USB keyboard, I’d look like my long time friend Mark Miller from DevExpress, who also suffered from RSI)
    (boy I wish there was a wireless ThinkPad TrackPoint keyboard)
