AnkhSVN v1.x used to suffer from many issues. It was instable, used far too much resources, and had many usability bugs, that repelled many people. For version 2.0 many parts of the tool have been rewritten from ground up, and now it’s a very descent tool that you should give second chance if you abandoned it after trying out previous version.
I was very pleasantly surprised by it, when I fired up my Visual Studio today, and I saw this:
Geee, now it even checks for updates, cool.
Good stuff. If you passed on it before, you definitely should give it another try – really, new version is a whole other tool.
