Enabling edition of log comments
Copy the code below into a text file and name it pre-revprop-change.bat and save it in the /hooks subdirectory for your repository.

How to update Subversion the nicest way?
Typically you install the lastest version of subversion, then run "svnadmin upgrade" (which often does nothing at all - repository format upgrades are rare).
You should, of course, take a backup first.
The upgrade notes are part of the release notes.
