In svn 1.6, the tree-conflict indicator was inserted at column 7 and the
out-of-date indicator moved to column 9. (I think the o-o-d indicator
was in column 8 in svn v1.5, not column 7, so that text was quite a long
way out of date.)
I am updating the book... Committed revision 3531. Thanks for reporting

That is correct.

The '*' is the out-of-date indication, which has moved. I suppose the
release notes should say this as well.
