TMate Software, that's the company behind SVNKit. See
https://svnkit.com/ (in the footer it says TMate Software). I guess
JavaSVN has become SVNKit sometime later. AFAIK, that's still an
implementation of SVN in pure Java, so it interacts with the
Subversion working copy without going through the Subversion APIs or
binaries. Not sure if we need to point that way from the 1.3 release
notes though (changed names, ... SVNKit obviously doesn't support 1.3
anymore either, ...).
