As with past releases, the Release Notes[1] are always enlightening:

"There is no need to dump and reload your repositories. Subversion 1.5
can read repositories created by earlier versions. To upgrade an
existing installation, just install the newest libraries and binaries
on top of the older ones."

That said, it certainly won't hurt to do a dump/load cycle, and you
won't have to run an extra script to reap the benefits of sharding and
some of the other improvements that may have been made.
