Based on my observing posts on this list for 8 months, yes.

Currently, yes, Subversion 1.2 can read FSFS repositories made with
Subversion 1.1 (the first version in which FSFS was available)
without issue.

You get a performance improvement if you dump and load when going
from 1.1 to 1.2, because 1.2 has a new delta format, but the dump and
load is not required.
