Thanks for the info Mark.

You are aware that this effectively links the release plans of Eclipse and
Subversion together? If we want to upgrade Subversion to 1.4, we have to
upgrade Eclipse to 3.2, if we want to upgrade Eclipse to 3.2, we have to
upgrade Subversion to 1.4. JavaSVN is by design following new Subversion
upgrades by atleast a month, further complicating the matter (as you indicate).

At home I always use the latest version of both, including milestone releases,
but at work we're definitely not capable to follow such an upgrade plan.

Subversion 1.5 will most likely change in the working copy format again, which
means we'll have to go through the same upgrade 'nightmare' again.

Just wondering, why this recommendation? We host an update site internally so my
current plan was to create a new unofficial 1.0.4 release with all the dll's and
javahl jar upgraded.

Thanks for your input.
