It depends.

You can use either JavaHL or SVNKit on any OS. Windows is the only OS
the we can technically provide JavaHL for. On Linux or OSX you have
to install the JavaHL library (which is part of Subversion). SVNKit
is pure Java and can be installed anywhere.

Because JavaHL is part of Subversion it is slightly preferred. It is
definitely the most tested by Subclipse developers.

You need Subclipse 1.4.0 which was released today. I am not sure if
SVNKit supports the new API for this yet or not. But by the time it
is GA I am sure it will. It probably already does. If it is
possible, I'd recommend using JavaHL since 1.5 is so new and it will
take SVNKit a while to get caught up.

The server version does not matter. Our Subclipse server, tigris.org,
runs SVN 1.3.
