SVN version - confused about support

I am managing 2 svn servers, one on Windows 16 server (VisualSVN) and one on Ubuntu Server 18.04 LTS (Apache SVN) which is used as a mirror of the first using svnsync.
On my Windows 7 dev laptop I installed the Collabnet command line svn back when I started using SVN.
These are all running 1.9.7
Now I am setting up a new laptop with Windows 10 and I have installed the Collabnet command line svn for use as a client. The offered download was 1.12.2-1, which is higher than what I had on my old laptop, so I thought it to be a safe bet.
However when reading the discussion about "network connection closed" on this list I came across a reply by Nathan Hartman where he writes:
"Subversion 1.12.x is no longer a supported release, since that is a 6-month Regular Release. Subversion 1.13.0 was released on October 30th and is a supported release."
I did not know this and I had assumed that Collabnet would not post a release that will expire in a few months time...
What am I supposed to do in order not to be stuck with a non-supported release?
The servers we use have not been touched (yet)...
