It is available in the last nightly linked against the svn 1.6.x libraries
though, provided you've got no objection to using nightlies:

http://nightlybuilds.tortoisesvn.net/latest/win32/full-1.6.x/
http://nightlybuilds.tortoisesvn.net/latest/x64/full-1.6.x/

FWIW I've been using this build for a while and find it stable, and a *very*
useful feature.

It's also available in the latest nightlies too, although these are linked
against the the svn 1.7.x libraries, so they will try to upgrade your
working copy format - something you need to be aware of for two reasons:

1) the 1.7 working copy format is not set in stone yet until it is released,
see this post for more details:
http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/ds/viewMessage.do?dsForumId=4061&dsMessageId=2657615

2) If you use any other svn client such as the command line or ankhSvn on
the same working copy, these must be linked against the same version of
the svn 1.7.x libraries, otherwise one of them will get a "future" version
of the WC format that it can't understand. While this is always the case,
because of point (1) the definition of "same version" is much narrower,
rather than the usual "same major and minor version number".
