I haven't been following up on 1.6. What features should we be
expecting? Would any of them be as useful as a usable workspace?
Personally, I've just recently moved to 1.5. Before that I believe we
were on 1.4 for what seems like forever. Serious merging issues have

Personally, other then a bit of whacky merging, I'm fairly happy with
the feature set of SVN as it stands now, but would love for it not to be
