Since the subversion people never report releases on freshmeat, I often 
find out that a new release is made by people informing me, or by accident 
(like now).

I have updated my subversion package to 1.5.1. But only on EL5, for EL4 
and older there is a problem with libneon (and SSL functionality). You 
should be able to pull it from RPMforge tomorrow during the day.

Kind regards,
