1.1.2 and 1.1.3 have identical C code. The only difference between
those releases is fixing a compile error in the perl-bindings. Ergo,
what you're seeing on svn.collab.net is proof that ViewCVS *does* work
with 1.1.2 and 1.1.3.

I promise that ViewCVS's svn compatibility is well-maintained. The
maintainer is sitting a meter away from me. It's a core component in
Collabnet's commercial product, so we're not allowed to let ViewCVS
*not* work with the latest released Subversion. :-)

(The only reason svn support is in the "development" version of ViewCVS
is because that project hasn't found time/energy to do a real 1.0
release yet.)
