Open Source AJAX Browser Tracks Code Versions via SVN

bsSvnBrowser Relies Heavily on AJAX to Allow User-Friendly Browsing of Subversion Archives

BountySource.com have released the first version of their web-based SVN browser, written in Ruby on Rails, under the GNU GPL license. The project website is available at https://bssvnbrowser.bountysource.com.

Features of bsSvnBrowser:
