There is no difference between 1.4.5 and 1.4.5.10425. There were no
releases between 1.4.4 and 1.4.5. 10425 is the subversion revision
number that the release was built from.

If you really wanted to, you could look at subversion log of
http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/svn/tortoisesvn/branches/1.4.x/ between
r9706 and r10425. That wouldn't include the changes to SubVersion
itself that got included through r10422.

The higher level reason that you are always seeing the updates as
critical security fixes is that on the stable branch of TSVN and SVN,
the projects don't release updates unless there is very good reason to
(ie major bugs or security fixes).
