Since svn is the most widely used centralized source collaboration repository: are there plans for supporting the current version (1.7) out of the box in the near future?

For the current 12.04 LTS you can get it installed following the answers in…. There's one mentioning the "Subversion team" PPA, which, IMHO, is your best bet. – Nikola Petkanski Jun 25 '13 at 7:02

$ rmadison -u ubuntu -s quantal subversion
subversion | 1.7.5-1ubuntu2 |       quantal | source, amd64, armel, armhf, i386, powerpc

Looks like 12.10 has version 1.7.5 of Subversion in the repository already.

Now, if you are asking whether 12.04 and the older versions would have the latest version, I would say no.
