The task of describing new features and changes of Subversion 1.9[1]
is on my todo list. I.e. I'm going to look through the release notes
of SVN 1.9 and update SVNBook 1.9 as soon as we make a branch for it.

However, as far as I understand we are not going to make SVNBook 1.9
branch until version 1.8 of the book will be 100% ready. IMHO, SVNBook
1.8 is mostly ready but still missing description of some important
changes like deprecation of BDB repository backend and new in-repo
authz feature[2]. I guess that I have to make SVNBook 1.8 update task
a priority and finally finish it.
