Subcommander is a qt based multiplatform subversion client, diff & merge tool.

The goal of the Subcommander project is to build an easy to use, cross platform (Win32, Unix, MacOSX) subversion gui client (subcommander) including a visual diff and merge tool with support for different text encodings (submerge).

Here are some key features of "Subcommander":
tight integration of repository browser and working copy status view, you can quickly switch between a working copy view or the repository view. It just a matter of selecting another item in a list view control.
colored working copy status view to quickly see which files/folder have changed.
easy branch and tag handling. By telling subcommander the projects urls for trunk, branches and tags and a working copy path it takes only a few mouse clicks to create a branch/tag or switch your working copy to a branch/tag.
has drag and drop support to move or copy files and folders.
easy handling of multiple working copies (e.g. different branches) from the same project.
easy merging of single revisions or revision ranges. Viewing the history on a repository url you can easily merge changes to your working copy. Just select a revision and tell subcommander to merge it into your (configured) working copy. That is especially usefull to merge bug fixes from trunk to your current release branch.
visual diff and merge for text files (configurable, defaults to submerge).
cross platform (Win32, MacOSX, Unix)
responsive gui, actions on the repository (like getting history information) will not freeze the gui.
what is implemented?
support for http(s)://..., svn(+ssh)://... file://... schemes.

switch a working copy (svn switch)
merge (svn merge)

tell subversion that you resolved a conflict (svn resolved)
view log messages on repository (svn log)

view files from the repository or working copy (from the log dialog) (svn cat)
