RE: Subversion 1.5

I'd like to disagree with what appears the majority (vocal) opinion, in that we'd far rather not have to deal with an update this close in on v1.4.

I know that we have the choice of whether to take the upgrade or not, but given various tool's predilection for telling clients to upgrade to the latest / most unstable I'd rather the server upgrade was held in abayence.

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.
