I'm pleased to announce that Subversion 1.5.6 is up for testing and
The magic revision is r36142. You can find the tarballs here:


You know the drill: signatures from full committers back to me, and
tester feedback is welcome. At this point, this candidate is not yet
for wide release, so please don't make it available to people not
interested in
test-driving the new release.

Distro package maintainers, please do NOT include any pre-release
builds, even
blessed, into operating system distros. The reasons for not doing so
were very
eloquently outlined by Karl in a mail, which is summarized at the
above address.

The quick version is: we don't guarantee compatibility between the pre-
and the final release, so if people install the release candidate, all
repositories and working copies might break irreparably when they
upgrade to
1.5.6 proper. We don't want that kind of bad publicity, and neither
do you.
