Re: Re: Link support on Windows

Looking at http://subversion.tigris.org/svn_1.1_releasenotes.html i see that
"On win32 systems, the client does no translation"

Couldn't junction support be added? It would be a welcome addition.

G'day Gustavo,

I think that's because symlinks are only supported on Subversion 1.1
and TortoiseSVN hasn't been updated to use that version (which makes
sense given that the 1.1 final hasn't even been released yet). If
past history is anything to go by, a matching version of TortoiseSVN
should be out within a fortnight or so of the official 1.1 release.
Note that I'm in no way associated with either the Subversion or
TortoiseSVN development teams, so I could be completely off track.

Cheers,
Peter
