I don't recall whether we started with 1.4.0 or not - I'd have to dig
through my server logs to tell for sure. But it was a brand new
install, and other then getting used to the SVN way of doing things (as
opposed to Visual SourceSafe + SourceOffSite) we haven't had any issues.

Granted, we don't do a lot of branching / merging. We're a bit of a
corner case in that SVN is mostly a way to keep everybody's copies of
project-related files up-to-date. All of us are laptop users spread
across multiple locations. The history feature is very useful for us as
is the efficient storage of binary files.

The big feature in 1.5 that we're looking forward to is sparse working
copies. Due to our work, we maintain a few monolithic repositories
rather then one repository per project (or client). Our projects are
typically short-lived (1-2 weeks max) and it's easier for us to manage a
few larger repositories then a few hundred tiny repositories. We also
prefer a few larger working copies on the local disk rather then also
managing dozens of local working copies. The downside is that if I'm
working on project X for a client, I end up with projects A to W also
downloaded. Which is good (fast access to older project files) but eats
up disk space.

Not sure I answered your question though.
