Unless there is some specific bug/feature fixed in a particular version,
AFAIK the version of the server vs the version of the client doesn't
matter much. Our SVN server went from 1.6 to 1.7 to 1.8.1 and we have
yet to upgrade clients to 1.8.1. Most of our client desktops/laptops
are running a mix of TSVN 1.6 and TSVN 1.7, with one early adopter
running TSVN 1.8.1.

Having both the client and server on the same revision (both running
1.8) gives you more capabilities then a 1.7 client talking to a 1.8 server.

(As a rule, I generally wait 2-3 weeks after a new major release like
1.7.0 or 1.8.0. Which is why we're just now rolling out 1.8.1.)

If you are instead talking about using two different clients (the
command line client and the TortoiseSVN client) to access the same local
working copy folder, then it matters a lot more. But since TSVN now
ships with a command line client, it's easy to keep both in sync.
