Subversion 1.6.0 available, lots of bug fixes apparently

subversion: Subversion 1.6 Release Notes
Older clients and servers interoperate transparently with 1.6 servers and clients. However, some of the new 1.6 features may not be available unless both client and server are the latest version. There are also cases where a new feature will work but will run less efficiently if the client is new and the server old.

There is no need to dump and reload your repositories. Subversion 1.6 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.

Subversion 1.6 maintains API/ABI compatibility with earlier releases, by only adding new functions, never removing old ones.

Previous version: 1.5.6 (27 Feb 2009)
