The important thing is to use a 1.8.x client for the improved merging, i.e. not having to use the --reintegrate switch with 'svn merge' anymore.
TorstiseSVN on Windows is great. Subclipse supports 1.8.x and works. However, last I checked, NetBeans requires you to set the subversion plugin to use the 1.8.x CLI instead of javahl or svnkit (which are limited to 1.7.)
Again, last I checked, non-windows GUI clients also have the problem of being stuck at 1.7.x.
