Hi,

We are running subversion version 1.2.3 on the server-side and
prepare to start a development project in Visual Studio Pro 2005.

I have read that there is some issues about unicode text format.
Are unicode supported in the newest versions of subversion or
will it anytime soon?

By "unicode supported" I mean that you can use merge/diff and
that the "automatically merge function" works like it does
on other text-files.
Without "unicode supported" and when the files are treated
as binary files you will offen get conflicts.
