A new upstream version of Subversion has been released.

A new subversion-gnome package is included. (Thanks to Yaakov
Selkowitz for the suggestion and patch.) It contains the plug-in
necessary to get the GNOME keyring authentication provider working,
although this is optional. Windows Crypto API support is still
available and part of the regular subversion package.

The 1.7.5-2 subversion packages are TEST packages built against the
TEST perl-5.14.2 packages.

See CHANGES (URL below) for more information about the differences
between 1.7.5 and previous Subversion releases.

IMPORTANT: Please read the release notes (URL below) before
upgrading from a previous major release. 1.7 includes a new working
copy format with a manual upgrade operation. This will render your
working copy unusable with previous major releases. Furthermore,
there are some issues trying to upgrade corrupt working copies.

Please see the release notes
