Johann, we don't have a set schedule really for the book, but are currently
working towards the completion of the 1.2 version, and on to the 1.3 version.

In terms of the differences against a 1.2 book version, I don't think the
1.3 version will be terribly significant -- certainly not in ways that bring
the must bang for the buck to a Subversion "newbie".  If you can digest the
1.2-in-progress that's available nightly, you'll have more than enough
knowledge to become a comfortable and successful Subversion user.
