I'm happy to announce the release of Apache Subversion 1.8.3.

Please note that Subversion 1.8.3 is the next release after Subversion 1.8.1.
The 1.8.2 release was not published publicly, due to issues found
during testing.

This release addresses three security issues:

More information on these vulnerabilities, including the relevant
