I have been waiting a while for support for Subversion 1.8. With the latest release, such support has been announced "via the native client".
What does "via the native client" mean? Does that mean it is built into PHPStorm or you have to use a separate subversion client?
Is the support "any good?" I have had issues with Subversion support in the past, and to this day I do all merging in TSVN.
