Can't checkout from Subversion (Bzr 1.3, bzr-svn 0.4.8)

Asked by Alexander Iljin


I'm new to Bazaar, and I'm currently trying to use it with my existing SVN projects, but
looks like the latest stable version of bzr-svn is incompatible with the new Bazaar 1.3.
What should I do?

Console dump below:
>bzr co svn+
bzr-svn is not up to date with installed bzr version 1.3.
There should be a newer version of bzr-svn available.

You can either use Bazaar 1.2 (which is compatible with bzr-svn 0.4.8), use bzr-svn's 0.4 branch or wait until 0.4.9 is released (will happen within the next week hopefully).

Thank you for the quick reply. I'll install the Bazaar 1.2 and will wait for the bzr-svn 0.4.9.
