+<p>Out best practices suggest that projects should branch and merge
+at the project root level.  Each merge will then usually change the
+<tt>svn:mergeinfo</tt> property at the project base folder.  To commit
+that change, pre-1.9 servers require the client to have the latest
+version of that base folder.  Whenever there is a commit in that tree,
+its base folder will get a new revision as well, though.   Thus, in
+large, busy projects, it is likely that by the time a large merge commit
+would actually have reached its finalization phase, some other commit
+got through and the merge commit is rejected for being out of date.  
+<p>Subversion 1.9 now allows to modify directory properties based on
+old revisions as long as the directory contents itself did no change.
+Directory contents changes would either be property changes,  added or
+removed entries.  Sub-tree or file contents changes no longer prevent
+the property change to go through.  Of course, true file and tree
+change conflicts will still result in out-of-date errors.
+<p>This new behavior is not restricted to <tt>svn:mergeinfo</tt> changes
+but applies to any directory properties.  Changes to <tt>svn:ignore</tt>
+are another common scenario previously prone to update / commit /
+out-of-date races.

+<p>In threaded mode, <tt>svnserve</tt> starts one thread per network

+Subversion 1.9 now uses a thread pool with a configurable minimum and
+maximum number of threads.  Use the command line options
+<tt>--min-threads</tt> and <tt>--max-threads</tt> if the defaults
+don't suite your needs.  Run <tt>svnserve --help</tt> to your
+system's defaults and whether the options are available at all.
