Acquia Drupal available via Subversion (SVN) repository
by Chris Brookins
As part of our mission to help simplify Drupal adoption, we recently made public the Subversion repository (SVN) for Acquia Drupal. Now you can quickly update your site to the latest release of Acquia Drupal with a single 'svn up' command or use one of the many freely available Subversion GUI clients. With the repository you can say goodbye to downloading packages, extracting them, moving files and renaming directories to update your site to the latest release of Acquia Drupal.
For step by step instructions on using the repository, or to download a Subversion client, we have posted a brief tutorial. Check it out.
One last developer note: this repository also holds the -dev branch of Acquia Drupal. So for those interested, it also serves as a way to be more transparent about which modules from Drupal.org are being actively staged by Acquia for the next release of Acquia Drupal. Of course the -dev branch should only be used for informational purposes, since by definition is hasn't completed Acquia's test and release procedures.
