+<p>Subversion 1.10 adds support for <a href="">LZ4</a>
+compression as an alternative to the <a href="">zlib</a>
+compression that has been used in the previous versions.  LZ4 offers fast
+compression and decompression while still maintaining a decent compression
+ratio.  Using LZ4 compression can significantly improve performance of most
+of the Subversion operations for repositories with large and, possibly,
+incompressible files.
+<p>Currently, LZ4 compression can be enabled for the data transferred over
+http(s):// to Subversion 1.10 clients by setting the <tt>SVNCompressionLevel 1</tt>
+directive in <tt>mod_dav_svn</tt>.  Apart from this, it can also be enabled
+for the on-disk data in new repositories with filesystem format 8 (see below)
+by setting <tt>compression-level = 1</tt> in the <tt>fsfs.conf</tt>
+configuration file.</p>

+<p>The default filesystem format is now a new format, numbered 8.
+(The <tt>svnadmin info</tt> command displays the filesystem format number
+of a repository.)</p>
+<p>The format bump is required to allow using LZ4 compression for the on-disk
+data.  In order to use LZ4 compression for existing data, it's require to
+perform a full
+<a href="">dump/load</a>
+cycle into a new repository with configured <tt>compression-level = 1</tt>
+in the <tt>fsfs.conf</tt> configuration file.
