Later major versions (e.g. 1.7.x) ofthe Subversion client library are not backward-compatible after a working copy upgrade. Beaware, if you update a third-party client application (for example, TortoiseSVN) to work with alater version of Subversion, and you upgrade the working copy or try to use a Dreamweaver sitewith a working copy created by this third-party client, Dreamweaver will no longer be able tocommunicate with Subversion. This issue is not affected by updates to the Subversion server asthose updates are backward-compatible.If you do upgrade to a third-party client application that is using a Subversion 1.7 working copyor later, you’ll need to check with Adobe for updates before you can use Subversion withDreamweaver again.
