Where would be the best place?
http://subversion.apache.org/docs/release-notes/
http://subversion.apache.org/source-code.html
or
http://subversion.apache.org/packages.html

IMHO the release-notes page would be best, since the packages page first
mentions that those are not officially endorsed or maintained, and the
source-code page won't be browsed to by most users.

My suggestion for the text:

Supported versions

The Subversion project supports the following stable branches:

(table)
1.6.x fully supported
1.5.x partially supported, only security fixes and fixes which would
cause data loss
1.4.x sparse support only: only fixes for severe security issue and
data loss issues
1.3.x and earlier not supported anymore

Is there a way to get a preview of the modified html files? Showing them
in a browser doesn't show them properly so it's hard to figure out if
the changes are correct.
