    Hi all.

    All the svn clients for macosx have been pissing me off lately in one way or another (svnx, zigversion, smartsvn, subcommander,...there's probably more I'm forgetting), so I've resorted to using command line svn.

    There's this lovely versions application from the same folks that did disco (whether or not that's a good thing...i'll leave up to you...), and just looking at the screenshot makes me long for it. But...it's been unavailable for download for a LONG time. It's just been stuck in beta for months and months and months.

    Is this just vapourware or what? Should I just resign myself to the ****** clients out there for macosx? Anyone just happen to know more about when it might be available?

    Cheers :D

    I wouldn't be surprised if they are just waiting for Leopard to be released. Looks like it'll be shareware anyways.

    What's there to hate about the CLI? All it needs is a little TLC ;)

    Actually, that's something I hadn't considered :eek: But that makes complete sense...*waits a little longer*

    The thing is, as much as I like CLI, i just like having...something to look at. Does that make any sense? I'm familiar with it and I can use it, but if there's a good graphical frontend, I'll take that over CLI when I can. I don't really like IDE integration, so standalone clients seem to be the best idea (particularly cause I version everything i can) but they're all sort of meh. I'm hoping Versions.app will not be meh :D
