I'm not sure, but I think that Fred was not talking about the client
software, but about the server-side?
I have used svn-1.4.5-setup.exe to install subversion on my server. On the
client, we are using the latest version of tortoise. What I'm not sure about
is how to update the server side: should I wait for the
svn-1.4.6-setup.exeor can I simply stop the subversion service and
replace the EXEs/DLLs with
the versions from the 1.4.6 ZIP file?
Maybe someone can clarify?
