Well, as mentioned by Lorenz, you didn't actually give any specifics of 
the problem, so there's not much anyone can do to help. But it's 
supposed to work, and in fact, does work--the subversion server at my 
place of work is still on 1.6.something, but all of the clients that 
access it are 1.7.4.

If your point is that there should be compatibility between the 
versions, you seem to have missed my point that there *is* 
compatibility. 1.x servers are compatible with 1.x clients. Whatever 
problem you had has nothing to do with version incompatibility. If you 
were to show the commandline you used and the error that you got when 
you tried to commit, you might be able to get some more help.
