What software do you use to commit your stuff on SVN ?

If you use TortoiseSVN, there is a feature "Branch/Tag" which allows you to
easy create a new tag of your trunk.

So you have to commit your trunk folder, then create a new tag by clicking
on "Branch/Tag" in the right click menu on trunk, and that's it.

Anyway, if your tag 0.1 is wrong and can't delete it, you can also create a
new tag, and specify into your readme that there is a new tag version.
