Since no one more knowledgeable has replied, I'll chime in.

The database schema is unchanged from 1.0.5 to 1.1.1, so you shouldn't
need to do anything to upgrade other than install the new version. I
just made the same jump with our servers, and it went smoothly. All
repositories verified successfully and I was able to check out and check
back in, so it looks like all worked as expected.

I'd still backup your repo, but I'm sure you do that every night anyway.

To quote from the 1.1 release notes (which contains the documentation
you're looking for):

Subversion's compatibility and version-numbering policy is documented in
the project's HACKING file. Here's a quick summary:

     * Database schema: if upgrading to Subversion 1.1, there is no need
to dump and load your repository. There will be no changes requiring
dump/load before Subversion 2.0.
     * Client/server compatibility: a 1.X client and 1.Y server are
always interoperable. However, the latest features or bugfixes may not
be available unless both client and server are the latest version.
     * API/ABI compatibility: the 1.1 release only adds new functions;
thus a 1.0 program can both compile against and use 1.1 libraries at
run-time, but a 1.1 program cannot use 1.0 libraries.
