This release is functionally complete, but contains known issues including:
  * Various bindings test failures

The term 'beta' means the Subversion developers feel that this release
is feature-complete and ready for widespread testing by the community.
There may still be issues, so please use it at your own risk, though we
do encourage people to test this release thoroughly. We do not anticipate
interface or API changes between the beta and the final release.

As a note to operating system distro packagers: while we wish to have
this alpha widely tested, we do not feel that it is ready for packaging
and providing to end-users through a distro package system. Packaging an
alpha poses many problems, the biggest being that our policy lets us
break compatibility between the alpha and the final release, if we find
something serious enough. Having many users depending on an alpha through
their distro would cause no end of pain and frustration that we do not
want to have to deal with. However, if your distro has a branch that
is clearly labeled as containing experimental and often broken
software, and explicitly destined to consenting developers and
integrators only, then we're okay with packaging the beta there. Just
don't let it near the end users please.

Please note that due to various improvements made to the working copy
library, the working copy format has changed. Using Subversion 1.5.0-beta1
on any working copy created by previous versions of Subversion will
TRANSPARENTLY upgrade your working copy, which means that production-ready
versions of Subversion will no longer be able to read it! Please be careful,
if you have two versions of Subversion running on your machine, to not use
the wrong version on a production working copy. If you inadvertently do
upgrade your working copy, you can use the new
tools/client-side/change-svn-wc-format.py script to restore working copy
compatibility with previous versions of Subversion.
