Any Subversion 1.x client can communicate with any Subversion 1.x
server. That's the guarantee of the 1.x line. Some functionality may
be missing if the versions are not matched. See the link Andy mentioned.

neon is only used if you want to access an Apache-hosted repository.
If you don't, you don't need neon.

If you do need to access an Apache-hosted repository, then as of
Subversion 1.5 there's a new option: serf. If you can get serf
working, you don't need neon.
