Regarding SVN URL

Looking in the Registry I see this Key


It is NOT a child or value in a specific workspace key such as


Rather it is a peer - I am thinking this is a "Universal" Connection URL

Since we will have many branches, each branch being a different workspace with its own SVN URL

How will the IDE handle this?

Will a DEV have to change the SVN URL every time they change workspaces?

Hi Chris,

Thanks for your reply.  I just installed the R2 beta and didn't notice any change.  The What's New doc Enhanced Source Control doesn't say anything about branching and the registry has the same structure


Am I missing something?

Hi Yakov, I think Chris didn't explain clearly enough. The branching in the PB IDE is new feature added to R2, but it is only supported for Git. For SVN, you still have to do it using an external tool such as TortoiseSVN, which we understand is cumbersome. It is clearly documented in the new features guide that this is Git only: https://docs.appeon.com/appeon_online_help/pb2019r2/whats_new/ch01s08.html

Hi Yakov;

  At this time, neither PB2017R3 or PB2019 can handle SVN or GIT branches within the IDE. It always wants to deal with the "main" branch only. In PB2019 R2 however, the IDE will support branching.

Regards .... Chris
