Fisheye support for SVN 1.8

Hi guys,

Does anyone know when will Fisheye start supporting the new SVN 1.8? As far as I know, the latest Fishey 3.1 only supports up to 1.7

If the next release will be supporting SVN 1.8, any estimate on the date of releasing the new Fisheye?

FishEye 3.3 has just been released which adds official support now for SVN 1.8.

Fisheye 3.3 does not support Internet explorer so i cant move over to it since lots of our users(why i dont know) use Internet explorer. So for now i have to keep it going this way.

Hi Ludger. While IE8 is not officially supported anymore, we won't go out of our way to break compatibility - we currently aren't aware of any problems with using it with ie8. Please also see

Thanks Nick for the update.


We are considering implementation of Jira, FishEye and possibly Crucible.

However there's a need for svn 1.8 support. This will affect our decision for a purchase. Is there a deadline at Atlassian on when svn 1.8 will be supported with the products above?

I understand the new features policy but i'm also on a deadline here and it's been some time sicne svn 1.8 has been released. So any indication on when 1.8 will be supported would help.

Hi - we are unable to say exactly when FishEye will fully support svn 1.8, however are hoping by the end of this calendar year.

That said, there are currently no known issues with pointing FishEye/Crucible at a SVN 1.8 server/repository.

The atlassian products use client side api's, so client side 1.7 apis are compatible with server side 1.8 based upon the SVN compatibility charts.

I currently run a SVN server on 1.8 and clients from any version. However the clients access the server using HTTPS so does fisheye. I have some repos with 26000 commits so indexing these is quite intense cause i have to force fisheye to connect to my https svn server and not read it directly from file.
