Yes and I believe that the update only fixes the security issue. Simply
use the --changelog option with the new rpm to see the comments about
what has been changed:

  [root@svn root]# rpm -qp --changelog
/var/cache/yum/updates-released/packages/subversion-1.0.2-2.1.i386.rpm |
head -5
/var/cache/yum/updates-released/packages/subversion-1.0.2-2.1.i386.rpm: V3
  A signature: NOKEY, key ID 4f2a6fd2
  * Sun May 16 2004 Joe Orton <jorton@redhat.com> 1.0.2-2.1

  - add security fix for CVE CAN-2004-0397 (Ben Reser)

  * Wed May 05 2004 Joe Orton <jorton@redhat.com> 1.0.2-2

However, there is also a 1.04 rpm available which cropped up in the
testing or development section. See the commented out bits in
/etc/yum.conf or something for paths to those repositories if you want
to run the latest version.
