JavaHL, along with the rest of the Subversion libraries, maintains
backward compatibility in future versions. If you develop against
1.6.11, your application will continue to work against other 1.6.x
releases and future 1.x releases. If you know that the local
installation will contain at least 1.6.0, then you can confidently use
that JAR and shared library.

(I should note here that future development of JavaHL will be in the
org.apache.subversion namespace, which is currently imiplemented on
trunk. The old org.tigris.subversion packages will still be shipped,
just not updated to reflect changes to the underlying C APIs.)
