Re: [Subclipse-users] Latest Subclipse (1.10.13) Unreliable

As you know, we have barely modified the product in several years, so it is
not like it suddenly changed to become unreliable. The only thing that is
changing is the SVN client underneath it, so most likely there are some
kind of behavior changes in SVN 1.9.

The version from the 1.12.x update site is identical to the one in the
1.10.x update site. One of them just contains SVN 1.8.x client and the
other SVN 1.9.x. since you cannot host both versions on one update site.

So perhaps there are some code changes needed for SVN 1.9. The API has not
changed but maybe its behavior has.
