The book is written for Subversion 1.0, and applies to the entire 1.0
line (1.0.1, 1.0.2, 1.0.3, ... etc). Additionally, it should be fine
to use with Subversion 1.1, 1.2, etc. The only thing is that certain
new features won't be documented in the published book; however,
anything the book *does* say should still be true.

Or did you mean: what version of the book in the repository does the
published version correspond to? I believe it's roughly r9200 or a
bit before. One of the authors can correct me if that's wrong.

Good luck!
