Netbeans 7 with(out) Subversion 1.7

This week I reinstalled my OS (long overdue!) and while I was at it got the latest releases of many pieces of software I use. These updates included both NetBeans 7.0.1 and TortoiseSVN 1.7.1.   Then I used TortioseSVN to check out a project and opened the project in NetBeans.  Next time I started NetBeans I was presented with the following message:

org.tigris.subversion.javahl.ClientException: The path ‘C:\Users\path to my project‘ appears to be part of a Subversion 1.7 or greater
working copy.  Please upgrade your Subversion client to use this
working copy.

After some web searching I realized that the upgrade to Tortoise 1.7.1 meant that I was now using the 1.7 Subversion client…which has some significant differences from the 1.6 client.  It also became apparent that NetBeans hasn’t yet upgraded to Subversion 1.7, but they will do-so soon.  

Here is a link to the story, with some work-arounds if you’re interested:  I’ve decided I’ll use only TortoiseSVN for my SVN Needs until the NetBeans release that supports SVN 1.7 comes along.
