A vulnerability has been found and corrected in subversion :

Multiple integer overflows in the libsvn_delta library in Subversion before 1.5.7, and 1.6.x before 1.6.4, allow remote authenticated users and remote Subversion servers to execute arbitrary code via an svndiff stream with large windows that trigger a heap-based buffer overflow, a related issue to CVE-2009-2412 (CVE-2009-2411).

This update provides a solution to this vulnerability and in turn upgrades subversion where possible to provide additional features and upstream bugfixes and adds required dependencies where needed.
