Mixing Subversion client versions

Different svn versions can checkout from, and commit to, the same project without difficulty. The only place you might run into trouble is if you share a working copy between different versions; in other words, if you copy the files you checked out to a machine with a different version of svn.

If you're moving from an older version to a newer one, there's no problem; the working copy will automatically be upgraded.

However, if you're moving from a newer version to an older one, it likely won't be able to work with the new working copy.

The best way to avoid this situation is to check out a fresh working copy on each machine you'll be working on, instead of copying files around.
