What's New in TortoiseSVN 1.14


TortoiseSVN 1.14 is a superset of all previous TortoiseSVN releases, and is considered the current stable and "best" release. Anything in earlier versions is also in 1.14, but 1.14 contains features and bugfixes not present in any earlier release.

This page describes only major changes. For a complete list of changes, you can check our commit logs

Don't forget to check out all the changes in the Subversion library that also is now at version 1.14: all those changes are of course in TortoiseSVN as well. See the full list of changes in the Subversion 1.14 release notes.

TortoiseSVN 1.14 is the new Long-Term Support (LTS) release.


TortoiseSVN 1.10 and later requires at least Windows 7 or later. It won't run on Windows Vista anymore.

If you're still need to use those earlier OS, you have to keep using TortoiseSVN 1.9 for Windows Vista or TortoiseSVN 1.8 for Windows XP.


Shelving and Unshelving

Subversion 1.14 enables both version 2 and version 3 of the shelving functions. The version can be changed via the environment variable SVN_EXPERIMENTAL_COMMANDS.

Please have a look at the Subversion notes about what values this variable can take. Note that if the variable is not set, TortoiseSVN defaults to v2.

Dark mode

You can enable a dark mode for all TortoiseSVN tools, i.e. TortoiseMerge, TortoiseIDiff, TortoiseUDiff, TortoiseBlame and even TortoiseSVN itself. The dark mode is enabled individually for each tool.

Windows 10

Dark mode can only be enabled for Windows 10 1809 and later.

For the TortoiseSVN dialogs, dark mode is available through the advanced settings page since not all controls are drawn in proper dark colors and therefore might not be suitable for all users.
