    Hey guys, I searched real quick and didn't find any previous mention of it, but I found this awesome app when I was out trying to set up a development environment on my Mac. (SVN, Bug Tracking, etc.)

    It's called Versions, and it's still in beta, but it seems really stable, and it's one of the best SVN clients I've ever used. I have no affiliation with the company or product at all, so this isn't a plug. :) I've just been using it constantly to manage some Xcode projects and a few other important documents between Macs, and I thought I'd share. :D (You can sign up for a free SVN repo through beanstalkapp.com too, and they integrate quite nicely.)

    I've not used it yet myself, but some devs that work for me say it's the best svn client available.

    I just started testing it out yesterday. Nice and straightforward, I'd given up on several other Mac subversion clients because they just didn't make any sense to me.

    Cornerstone SVN Client

    You might consider looking at Cornerstone. I thought the interface was a bit more intuitive then Versions. Versions also still seems to be in Beta.

    Wow $59 for Cornerstones? That's pretty pricey. I use SVNX. It's open source, and free. If something comes along for $20 or $30 that's much better, I'll go w/ that, but $60? puh-lees.

    I will try versions out later though.

    To be honest, I mostly end up using subclipse, the svn client built into eclipse.

    Help installing SVN client

    Hello guys, I just bought a MacBook Pro and I'm needing to install the SVN client. I found some interesting SVN GUI like the one that integrates with Finder (can't remenber the name, I'm on windows now...). But I wasn't able to create a conection with the repository. There's another problem, the Terminal keeps saying that te comand "pico .bash_profile" that was referred in some tutorials cant be recongnized... Can anyone help me?

    Versions just got out of beta today, a price tag of 49$ still feels too much for me to afford.

    Are svnX and RapidSVN really the only two free SVN GUIs for Mac?

    Meh, Xcode is a perfectly adequate SVN client in its own right if you ask me. If you add WebSVN as well you have all you need for free.

    that's assuming you use xcode, which would depend on the type of development you do. Furthermore, some like SVN to be separate from the IDE.
    Si.

    Creating branches in Versions

    Does anyone know how to do this? I find it strange that this isn't a major menu item?

    A 'branch' is just a copy, same as a 'tag' in both Versions and Cornerstone. So if you have a 'branches' folder you Option+drag your root folder into your branches folder and it makes a copy. Then name your branch whatever you want.

    After using both for the trial period, I decided to go with Cornerstone, I just liked the feel of it more.
