main one is that checksums are now used to verify the integrity of
file contents transferred between client and server, in both
directions. Many performance bugs and working-copy edge case bugs
have also been fixed.

This release was tested against Apache httpd 2.0.44, which is

 User-visible changes:
 * 'svn add' is now recursive by default, -N to disable (#1073)
 * new 'svnversion' program summarizes mixed-revs of a working copy
 * huge improvements to the mailer.py tool
 * more work on the Book and man page
 * default global-ignores now built-in, new runtime-config file commented out

 Developer-visible changes:
 * checksums, checksums everywhere (issues #649, #689):
    - filesystem stores them, and verifies them when reading/writing
    - working copy stores them, and verifies them when reading/writing
    - checksums transferred both ways over network, RA layers verify them
 * finish draft of internal diff/diff3 library -- ready for testing/optimizing
 * more utf8-apr conversion work (#872)
 * more work on swig/python and ruby bindings
 * improvements to win32-innosetup package
 * 'svnserve' now has an official IANA-assigned portnumber.
 * mod_dav_svn now only sends/understands new xml prop namespaces (#840)
 * bug fixes: stop needless fs rep data copies (#1067), wc auth
   caching bugs (#1064), use APR_BUFFERED to open files (#1071), lots
   of wc 'missing dir' edge-case bugs (#962), prevent wc from
   receiving '.svn' (#1068), don't commit symlinks (#1081), better
   diff labels (#1080), better fulltext tmpfile names in conflicts (#1079),
   prevent ra_dav from deleting out-of-date items (#1017), segfault (#1092),
   don't attempt checksum on missing tmp textbase (#1091), allow diffs
   diffs during update again (yikes!)
