+1 for release ASAP. My employer is clamoring for the DAV mirroring functionality for all of our international offices that have developers located abroad.

To all interested users: we'd like your opinion!

As many of you know, significant development effort is going into
implementing merge tracking as a part of Subversion. This work is going
well, but there is a concern among some of the developers that it has
been too long since our last release and that we should not delay the
Subversion 1.5 release while we wrap up this feature.

There are currently several new features in trunk which are ready to go
into the next Subversion release. These include:
* Cyrus SASL support (SoC project '06)
* Copy/move improvements (Peg revision support, support 'svn mv file1
   file2; svn mv file2 file3', support 'svn cp *.c dir')
* Dav mirroring
* Cancellation improvements
* JavaHL improvements
* Partial sparse directories support (not in trunk yet, but
   anticipated to be merged soon.)
* Changelist support
* Various bugfixes

Our question to you is whether or not you, as users of Subversion, would
like Subversion 1.5 now with the above features, or 1.5 in 6 months with
features plus merge tracking? Releasing 1.5 now will push 1.6 back
slightly due to the overhead associated with 1.5. If we do release 1.5
now, we hope to release 1.6, with merge tracking, by 4Q 2007.
