I am wondering if a file's check-in history is retained if it is renamed in an SVN repository. I know that CVS will treat the file as new, not carrying over the file history. Is SVN the same?

Yes it is the same. As long as you rename the file, all it knows is, you are deleting a file and adding a new one. But if you roll back to a previous version, you should still be able to get the old file
