New SVN Client Versions for OS X Rocks!
I was visiting one of my clients a few weeks ago and one of his ColdFusion developers is a mac user and we got into the topic of SVN clients on OS X. Its a shame that the best SVN client for OS X is still Subclipse for the Eclipse platform.
Well that is until now! He told me about a new SVN client for OS X that was in development called Versions. The beta was yet to be released but based on the screenshots I saw on the site, I quickly gave them my email to notify me of the beta being released.
Yesterday, that email arrived. Its a time limited beta release, it expires on July 1 but right now I dont care! This thing is amazing.
It uses the native OS X interface and man is it beautiful! I havent had too much time to devote to putting it through its paces completely but what I have used so far is awesome. My single favorite feature so far is the Timeline view of the repository. Its much like the timeline view in Trac, where it lists the revision number and the files affected in that revision as well as the commit messages for that revision. Its very clean and easy to read.
If your using OS X and SVN, you owe it to yourself to check out Versions!
