svn best practices document--possibly out of date?

I'm preparing a "we are moving to svn" presentation for the team. Our
manager has requested that I go over some best practices, so I'm shamelessly
copying from the list found here:


There is one section that warns about incompletely implemented commands:

"When a file or directory is copied or renamed, the Subversion repository
tracks that history. Unfortunately in Subversion 1.0, the only client
subcommand which actually takes advantage of this feature is svn log. A
number of other commands (such as svn diff and svn cat) ought to be
automatically following rename-history, but aren't doing so yet."

Has this been addressed in newer versions of svn? Currently we're using
1.3.x for our proof-of-concept stuff but some noise has been made about
using 1.4.0 when we jump in with both feet.
