Hi group,

I'm just checking out Subversion for the first time. I bought the book and
I'm working through it now, this looks really cool.

But.

The book sort of sets a person to installing Subversion and then
TurtoiseSVN. Following this path will end the fun very quickly. Turtoise
operations from the shell will be fine but with the more advanced stuff like
moving, deleting files you will get stuck with the message that the client
is too old.

U:\svn\doc>svn move CHANGELOG.txt CHANGELOG

svn: This client is too old to work with working copy '.'; please get a

So it seems that there is a rather stringent relationship between the svn
client and the server.

This doesn't need to be a problem as long there is some information on which
versions of TurtoiseSVN and Subversion work together. I think this
information is not there, at least I couldn't find it.

Personally I think that this can be avoided.

Cheers,

Onno
