Subversion 1.2.0 is the first new feature release since 1.1.0 and
includes a number of new improvements and features. You can find a
detailed list of the chnages in our release notes at:

    http://subversion.tigris.org/svn_1.2_releasenotes.html

The release notes also detail the compatability of this release with
prior 1.0.x releases.

The new 1.2 features are not yet documented in the online
Subversion book. Expect to see them in the next week or two.
In the meantime, a very compressed (but complete) explanation
of the new features is present in the 1.2 release notes.

Binary distributions are usually available for various platforms
within a week. The Subversion project does not officially
endorse or maintain any of these binary distributions, so we
cannot control the exact timing of their release.

A full list of changes since 1.1.4 follows below.

Questions, comments, and bug reports to users_at_subversion.tigris.org.

Thanks,
-The Subversion Team
