CYGWIN NEWS:
===========
This is a test release of subversion-1.8.9 built against the test
release of perl 5.18. It is only available for x64 right now.

NEWS:
=====
See CHANGES (URL below) for more information about the differences
between 1.8.0 and previous Subversion releases.

IMPORTANT: Please read the release notes (URL below) before
upgrading from a previous major release. 1.8 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

  http://subversion.apache.org/docs/release-notes/1.8.html

for more details about the changes in Subversion.

See

  http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/subversion/tags/1.8.9/CHANGES

for more details about the changes in 1.8.9.

This release changes mod_dav_svn to no longer map requests to the local
filesystem.  Administrators of mod_dav_svn servers should read the
section about this in the release notes:
    http://subversion.apache.org/docs/release-notes/1.8.html#mod_dav_svn-fsmap

DESCRIPTION:
============
Subversion is a version control system designed to be a compelling
successor to CVS.
