That's possibly because the user mailing list was only split away from
the dev mailing list this week. There appear to be only 52 mails on this

We dropped 95/98/ME/NT support with the 1.2.0 release. There are
significant API differences between NT4 and newer Windows versions, and
it was getting harder and harder to paper over the cracks. Also, none of
the developers uses NT, so debugging was almost impossible.

V1.1.7 was the last release that supported NT. It's available from the
download page via the archive of older versions. Get it here:


I will update the download page to make that a bit clearer.

You can use the latest version of SVN with older versions of TSVN (see
compatibility again).
