Versions 1.2.2 does not work with HTTPS SVN 1.7.8 repositories (SSL handshake failed: SSL error code)

Versions works with SVN 1.6.x repositories, or with SVN 1.7 repositories not using SSL.

I've reported this bug 8 february 2013, the support team answered immediately, but the but is still there...

just updated to 1.1.1

ok Cornerstone could be better (anyway it WASN'T better before its 2.0).. but Versions is really nice and works well.

the new UI is even better than 1.0 (and lately UI redesigns make things worse)

si.. let's stay with Versions until we all will move into Git :)

The best way I can describe this app (of which I own and use) is "it's really sorta OKAY." The navigation around the app is very Windows feeling. Importing content into an SVN repository and then reconnecting to it is a PAIN IN THE @$$. Considering how absolutely easy the paradigm of SVN is to understand, I'm always frustrated when engineers work extra hard to make it confusing. The terminology and UI could use a major upgrade. Things like "Setting up SVN..." that would prompt one to select a folder to upload...not a folder then another folder, then some description text and all so interdependent and crossed over for duplicate nomenclature that you're not sure who's on first.

The other frustrating part of the UI is during deleting or adding new files. It routinely gets so confused you can't reconcile the problem and have to start over. Every "Versions" SVN repository on my drive has orphaned files and at lease ONE "can't delete" error message. ARG.

So getting there, but you might wait to lay down cash.

Versions is a wonderfully easy to use svn client. As a standalone client (as opposed to plugin or extension), it is the best one available for the Mac as far as I can tell. It is mostly very stable. It does crash periodically while doing nothing, if it is running behind certain proxy servers. Since this happens when idle, and not during an activity, the crashes can be mostly ignored.

The Versions support team responds consistently and quickly to emails. The problem is that they admit to having a very slow pace at introducing functionality into the product, but have never shown any sign of changing. About a year ago, one could sense a tone of regret, but that has long since disappeared. The pace is really snails-pace. It does not have feature parity with other (free) svn clients, such as Tortoise. Since it is has no serious competition as a Mac client, the team can get away with its high price and slow development pace. I do not believe this reflects well on the Mac platform and its developer community.

A typical example of my correspondence: for over a year, I have been asking for a way to easily copy the path of a remote resource to the clipboard. Every other svn client I have ever used has this simple feature, typically made available in the earliest versions of the software. The Versions support team has always promised to consider the feature. Initially they defended themselves by pointing out that the product is young. Eventually they gave up. Their message was that they had no intention of introducing it, and wished me luck in my use of an alternate product. They have no intention of reaching feature parity with the most rudimentary of graphical svn clients.

I started working with Versions in the Spring of 2009. Slick website, Apple design award, product has a nice looking, clean interface. I thought this was going to be the answer to my desire for a nice, graphical, SVN client.

The product does work as advertised, and is generally stable, however, development speed is glacial. Just take a look at their Google Groups support page for complaints.


I eventually got so fed-up waiting for little fixes and updates that I switched to Cornerstone and have not looked back. Better workflow, stability, and feature set.

I love Versions. Just purchased it. Apple doesn't just select any old product for its Design Award. This product is polished. I have also had very quick contact with support.

I'm so glad I no longer have to use the command line svn, that was getting old.

People, check your spam filter if support doesn't reply. It is likely they did reply and the message is there.

I was set on purchasing versions. So while I was making the purchase I was trying to take advantage of a coupon code that wasn't working, so I emailed them about it. While waiting, I decided to read up on versions and while doing so, came across Zennaware's Cornerstone. I decided to try it out, however I was still set on versions. After days of no response I decided to abandon and coupon code and just ask for an educational license, thinking it would speed along the process. I went ahead and sent my schools info in another email. After no response still, I decided to look more into Cornerstone. So I sent an email to Zennaware about Cornerstone educational license coupons, I received an email instantly with the coupon code. However I decided to still stick it out and wait for a response from the developer of versions. Even though both apps are great I was set on getting versions. I finally just received an email today responding to the first email I sent, they responded that they wanted to know the website I got the coupon code from, I responded 30 seconds later that I sent an email after that first initial email inquiring about education license coupons, and just wanted to get an educational license now, and again I'm waiting with no response. To me the companies lack of customer service reflects on the quality of service they can provide. If I ever had a problem in the future I can see the potential headaches when dealing with communicating with them, so I am going to go with Cornerstone.

Hi ICONZ113,

It's very unfortunate that you have the impression that you weren't helped adequately. We responded to your every email within hours of receiving them.

Our offer to help you still stands.

It's interesting that I emailed Cornerstone team 2 times and they never replied for a student coupon. I wonder if you can send me the coupon to this email account, 06300720166@fudan.edu.cn. You can see that this is a student email account.
