Yes. There's a combobox with all the depth possibilities instead of a
'recursive' checkbox now.

I'm not sure if single-file checkout works the way you seem to want it.
It's *not* the same as shared files in VSS. If you need a single file
_versioned_ checked out, you still need a parent folder. You can
checkout a single file without a parent folder, but then that file isn't
versioned (i.e., it's the same as 'svn cat file').
