VisualSVN Server

After trying to get Subversion + Apache to work with Active Directory on Windows Server 2003 for quite a while, a colleague of mine pointed me at http://www.visualsvn.com/server/. It's for free and comes with a nice user friendly management console. But more importantly (for me at least) is that it supports Active Directory out of the box, which saved me a lot of time figuring out how to setup and configure those Apache auth mods!

The only thing I found strange is that the management console doesnt allow you to create repositories with a '.' in the name. Creating a repository with for instance underscores in the management console, and then renaming the repository folder on disk to use dots instead works fine though.
