Subversion 1.4 and working copy incompatibility

Will IntelliJ 6.0 support Subversion 1.4?

It's important for us, since Subversion 1.4 changes the format of the working copy which is incompatible to Subversion 1.3. We use IntelliJ and svn as Subversion clients.

IntelliJ IDEA's Subversion plug-in uses JavaSVN so I think it depends on supporting from JavaSVN.

Is Subversion 1.4 already released?

No. It's still release candidates. I expect someone installed a client
built against it though which would upgrade their working copy to no
longer be compatible with IDEA.

When I install IntelliJ, I don't see JavaSVN - it's bundled with IntelliJ. The question is, will the right version of JavaSVN (the one which is compatible with Subversion 1.4) be bundled with IntelliJ 6.0?

I just want to make sure, that the two tools which are beeing developed right now, will be compatible when they are released.

Well. It's already released.
And still no comments from IntelliJ :(

Pretty bad idea to change the format of the working copy in a point release, but Jetbrains have commented on the issue here:

Hello Dmitry,

I think I already commented on this in another thread. It looks like SVN
1.4 support will not make it into the Demetra final release, but it will
be included in the first bugfix update (IntelliJ IDEA 6.0.1).

Hmm, that's sad to hear. Subversion 1.4 brings some performance improvements, and most importantly, repository replication. I can imagine this alone will be a strong push to upgrade servers; my company is already discussing the move.

You can upgrade your servers, just don't update any clients that also
point IDEA at the same working copy.
