That word means different things in different contexts. Sometimes it
means "we think this version is buggy". Sometimes it means "this
version is kind of new and we know based on extensive experience that
the previous one is fine, so what's the rush?" Sometimes it means
"this version adds a new feature, which would break our absolute
no-new-features, just-critical-bugfixes compatibility guarantee."

IMX, SVN 1.1.1 is fine. You're doing a new install, had problems with
older versions, and want a 1.1+ feature, so it's a no-brainer to try
the latest release.

Gentoo has an ebuild for 1.1.1, masked ~x86. Assuming a reasonably
recent version of portage, you can build it by adding the line
"dev-util/subversion" to /etc/portage/package.unmask, then doing
an "emerge subversion"

Most Win32 users just install a binary rather than building their own
SVN. There's a download link on the front page of the SVN web site.
