Unfortunately this is a bug with Subversion itself, though it's due to be fixed in version 1.9 when that comes out - we'll be building a new version of SmartSVN for when that happens but until then it's not something we can fix.
>but until then it's not something we can fix.
Well, in SmartSVN 8.0 (and 7) your were at least able to hide or circumvent that bug such that one can work normally with those repositories.
It would be nice to have that in version 8.5, too. I have many of those repositories "spoiled" with special characters and 8.5 RC2 is completely unusable in those cases, no correct update, add, commit operations, but all those work well in 8.0.
The reason it's changed is because in the 8.5 RC's we've moved to using the JavaHL libraries which are the same ones used by Subversion - for many reasons, though predominantly because it's so much faster. That's why the issue has shown up again in this revision.
Apache are working on the 1.9 alpha now and according to the [URL="http://subversion.apache.org/roadmap.html"]roadmap[/URL] it's due out in Q2 of this year so it is underway, but given that you've a lot of files with special characters in you'll probably be better using SmartSVN 8 until the 1.9 release of Subversion is out.

OK, thanks for the explanation. And thanks also for the info about the upcoming fix. It's nearly unbelievable that this bug in svn is known since at least 2005 without a solution (except for SmartSVN's tricks).
i did test the commandline tools from subversion 1.9.0 alpha 2. this bug is still not fixed in the alpha 2 release.
but i found a patch for 1.8.* which fixes the problem
i use the patched server+client on mac and everything works fine.
so, my question is: in which version of SmartSvn (or subversion) will this bug be fixed?
Hi, as I said [URL="http://www.wandisco.com/svnforum/threads/68667-Umlaut-problem-in-8-5-RC-2-on-OSX?p=168136&viewfull=1#post168136"]above[/URL]: "it's due to be fixed in version 1.9" - thanks for the information about the patch.
