No, no. You don't have to worry. It's not the official Subversion client
that's not compatible anymore.
It's TortoiseSVN (and of course, the Subversion client if you build it
with VC8).

The problem is the new compiler which comes with VC8/VCExpress/VS.NET2005.

I'm still trying to get it to work so that it produces a bdb dll which
can access the repositories created with the official Subversion client.
But so far, I haven't been successful. So I'm asking here for help.
Maybe someone has already succeeded (I know I'm not the only one using
VC8 to compile Subversion).
