svn-1.8 Release Notes

Two items of interest for Cygwin, especially in the light of recent work 
with the SQLite3 locking mechanism:

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

Subversion can be configured to use exclusive SQLite locks by making a 
simple addition to the .subversion/config file.

2. http://subversion.apache.org/docs/release-notes/1.8.html#bdb-deprecated

The Berkeley back-end has been deprecated, in favour of FSFS. You may 
recall that I reported some difficulty in getting Cygwin svn to work 
reliably with the Berkeley DB back-end:
http://www.cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2013-02/msg00130.html

So this might be one problem that doesn't need fixing!

Dave.
