Using Subversion

strict warning: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/tal/rox/htdocs/desktop/modules/book/book.module on line 559.

If you're too impatient to wait for even developer releases, you can get the current version of the filer and other programs directly from subversion.

This is the version that the developers are actually working on at the time.

ROX-Filer has moved!

ROX-Filer has moved from subversion to git, so see the git instructions instead. The other components are still in subversion for now.

Fetching the latest version of a program

You can view the repository contents online here.

To checkout a module (e.g., Edit) using subversion, use this command:

svn co

For more information on using subversion, see the instructions.


If you don't have a subversion client, you can download the daily snapshots instead. These are generated at around 0710 each day (UK time) from for each application, except for ROX-Filer which is now generated from the primary git repostitory .

Why are some files missing from my checked-out version of ROX-Filer?

To get a complete system, you also need to create Manual.html from Manual.xml (by running make in the src/Docs directory) as well as recreate the various language translations. These files are not in subversion because they are generated from other files.

However, the daily snapshots do have these files included.

.svn in snapshots

I wonder whether we should remove the .svn directories from the snapshots?

It was OK with CVS, but subversion stores a complete copy of the checkout, doubling the size of the download... (rox.tgz is 4 Mb!)

Re: .svn in snapshots

I thought we left them in to make it easier to update once you had a copy? Perhaps this isn't as important as it was with CVS.

Re: .svn in snapshots

Well I took them out 2 weeks ago and nobody has complained yet...


Daily snapshots aren't being updated due to a fault at SourceForge. They hope to be back on the 21st.

Re: Snapshots

They are finally back on the 24th.
