Collabnet does Subversion for Mac

A version by any other name

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

It would not be too surprising if fans of Apple's Macintosh felt that, outside of those market sectors where the machine is the platform of choice, they are second class citizens.

Mac implementations of PC software often appear many months after the PC versions, if at all, and in the world of developer tools things are little different. So the arrival of a Mac client for Subversion, as the role of version control management in apps development really starts to grow, will probably please Mac fans in the developer community.

The Mac OS X Subversion client comes from CollabNet, which is dedicated to advancing the cause of Subversion through education, support, and consultancy services.

It is also the place to go for downloads for both clients and server-side tools for Linux, Solaris, and Windows environments. The Mac client can be downloaded here.

It is a precursor to the first fruits expected to come from a new project on openCollabNet known as SVNbinaries which, as the name implies, targets the development of Subversion binaries.

CollabNet set the SVNbinaries effort rolling by contributing the Mac client binary. One of the first targets for the project will be to get working with partners that want to build scripts, bindings, and additional binaries, such as the high priority target – a Subversion server for the Mac OS X environment. ®
