nightly builds

In case you're frequently using our nightly builds, here's some
important information:

The format of the working copy now uses only a single database at the
root of the working copy. Previously, every folder in a working copy had
its own .svn folder, but that now changed.
If you used nightly builds before, you may already have converted your
working copies to a format that uses a database instead of flat files to
store the wc info. If you're still using an 1.6.x client, then you can
simply upgrade your working copies with the command from the TSVN
context menu.
If however you already did that with an earlier nightly build, you now
must either use a python script to upgrade your working copy to the
latest format, or (what I recommend) do a fresh checkout of your working
I recommend the fresh checkout because the python script doesn't cover
all situations and might corrupt your working copy. And it doesn't
handle svn:externals at all.
If you want to use the script, it's available here:

All this only applies if you're using a nightly build. If you're using
the official releases of TSVN, just ignore this email.
