A new version of subversion is now available for download. This
version is built for Cygwin 1.7.

CYGWIN NEWS:
============
I've removed the local patch to retry filesystem operations. This
was originally added to help address problems due to other Windows
components holding files or directories open (e.g., virus
scanners). I'm hoping that Cygwin 1.7's more robust unlinking
support will make this patch unnecessary. If you encounter problems
with files or directories that can't be renamed or removed, please
report them to the main Cygwin list and I'll re-apply the patch.

There were two test failures with Cygwin 1.7. One was related to
packing an FSFS filesystem. The other problem was that tests hung
using the serf HTTP library. This package still includes support for
serf, but if you encounter problems, please switch to the neon
library.

NEWS:
=====
This is a new upstream release. See CHANGES (URL below) for more
information.

IMPORTANT: This release will silently upgrade your Subversion
working copies to the 1.6 format, rendering them unusable with
previous major versions of Subversion.
