SmartSVN fails to start on latest Manjaro update

If SmartSVN does not start any more on some Linux systems, e.g. Manjaro, the file ~/.config/smartsvn/14.2/logs/log.txt.0 might indicate a problem loading libcrypt.so.1. This could be related to a recent update of the glibc bundle where /usr/lib/libcrypt.so.1 had been removed. To fix this, please find out which bundle contains this file now:

$ pacman -F libcrypt.so.1

On Manjaro one has to install the libxcrypt-compat bundle.

Log4J vulnerability “Log4Shell”: our recent product versions are not affected

The good news: none of our recent product versions is using Log4J:

  • SmartGit 18.1 and newer
  • SmartSVN 9.3 and newer
  • SmartSynchronize 3.5 and newer
  • DeepGit 4.0 and newer

However, Log4J 1.x was used by older versions of our products:

  • SmartGit 17.1 and older
  • SmartSVN 9.2 and older
  • SmartSynchronize 3.4 and older
  • DeepGit 3.0 and older
  • SmartCVS

Log4J 1.x should not be affected by CVE-2021-44228 (“Log4JShell”), but there is another important vulnerability CVE-2019-17571 affecting Log4J 1.x. For this reason, we have decided to remove the affected versions from our download archive.
