To make licensing of SVN Web Control more convinient the license is changed from GNU General Public License (GPL) to GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL). LGPL grants more freedom to users, including usage of commercial products. The change includes also ALL versions less and equal to SWC v.1.1.0 of SWC with immediate effect even if source code states it otherwise.
A new version (SWC-v1.1.0-l) is released, the only changes are the license statements, code is kept untouched. According to the statement above it is not necessary to download the new version if you already use SWC-v1.1.0.

SVN-Web-Control v1.1.0 released

Subversion-Web-Control version 1.1.0 is available as file release. Please read the release notes or change logs for necessary migration steps below if you are already using SWC v1.0.y.

I was able to add some nice features, e.g. "Spaceballs" and even to fix all of the known bugs.
Spaceballs are - just similar to TARballs - the zipped content of the webspace without .svn directories. That makes it much more easier to create file releases with SVN and SWC.
Another new feature is that SWC support several svn protocols. It is now possible to access SVN via svn:// or https:// etc.... read more

Important: Migration to SWC Rev 27 and later to SWC v1.1.0

Due to solution of SF #1516603 / Tigris #8 "Enable additional SVN protocols"
interface and usage of SwcConfig has been change slightly but signifcantly.
No parse errors will occur but the configuration will not work anymore!

Migration steps
For each SWC configuration (derived from SwcConfig):
1.) The function GetRepositoryRoot must be deleted and GetRepositoryRootDir must be
renamed to GetRepositoryRoot.
2.) The function GetWebspaceRootDir must be used, GetWebspaceRoot is deprecated
and not used anymore.
