Subversion 1.5.1 Win32 Installer Released

I am happy to announce the release of the Subversion 1.5.1 win32 installer
based on D.J. Heap's win32 binaries.

This release departs from previous win32 installer releases in three
significant ways.

Firstly, it is an MSI installer - previous releases were .exe installers.
The installer is built using WiX, with SharpDevelop integral in the WiX
project development.

Secondly, it includes Apache 2.0x AND Apache 2.2x binaries in one unified
installer. An option during the install allows you to select the binaries
you wish to install.

Thirdly, this installer will not auto-configure Apache, it is a standalone
Subversion installation. There is no guarantee of this ever making its way
back into the installer. One reason not to include it is it would be
difficult to manage users upgrading their Apache installation. Opinions (if
any) on this should be directed to the users or developers mailing list.

I sincerely hope most users find the new installer more flexible in respect
to administrative installs and the convenient inclusion of both Apache
