Mac OS X Subverted
22 Jun 01:11

CollabNet, the primary sponsor of the Subversion open source project, has announced Subversion for Mac OS X.

This version of Subversion is a Universal application, compatible with both Intel and PowerPC based Macs, and includes the Java, Perl, Python and Ruby bindings as well as Berkeley DB support. The Subversion Universal binary for Mac OS X is available as a free download from CollabNets openCollabNet developer site (URL below).

Apple Computers Xcode team and CollabNet will provide expert advice to Mac developers during Apples Worldwide Developers Conference, June 11-14 in San Francisco, California. At the Xcode and Subversion lab (session 3000), members of Apples Xcode team and key CollabNet employees who are leading contributors to the Subversion open source project will provide insight and hands-on assistance to developers who want to use the new Subversion client for Mac OS X for source code management.

The Mac OS X client for Subversion was developed as part of a new project on openCollabNet, SVNbinaries. This developer community focuses on the creation of Subversion binaries, an activity that is not part of the Subversion open source project itself. To kick-start this community, CollabNet provided its first contribution in the form of the Mac OS X client. The company is now actively seeking community members who want to collaborate on build scripts, bindings and more binaries, including a Subversion server for Mac OS X.

Subversion is an open source project that can be used to manage changes to any sort of digital information. Subversion is available under an Apache/BSD-style license and runs on all modern flavors of UNIX, Win32, BeOS, OS/2, OS/400 and Mac OS X. To date, Subversion has been installed on more than 133,000 public Apache servers and it is estimated that more than 2 million developers worldwide use Subversion to version their source code.
