Subversion (SVN)


It took me a long time to find a suitable Subversion client for the Mac. What really sold me initially was its look and feel. It's way more feature rich than Versions, but also has the same elegance and simplicity of a native Mac app. It also has a tremendously powerful built-in diff viewer and merging tool which has become essential when working with larger projects. Also, when working with large teams, being able to view diffs during a commit process is great since it gives you the ability to write details on specifically what you've changed; it's a huge time saver.

If you're on the fence about a SVN app, this is definitely the app to go for. Nothing else even comes close.

    Thanks for this review!

    I was just wondering how you feel this Subversion compares to SmartSVN. I’ve been using SmartSVN for years now because at the time (4 years ago) it was as close to TortoiseSVN which many of my (PC using) colleagues were using.

    Also, with the new Mac OS X Lion, I’m weary of SmartSVN working but I rather like the interface and have gotten really used to it… so I wonder if I should wait for them to figure things out with Lion or switch.

    I’m versioning mostly big art files (psd, ai) and flash files (fla/swf).
