Garbage.

Yes, it has lots of features. Not as many as you can find on other platforms, but its not half-bad.

Yes, it's easy to use. You won't have any problems learning how to get around this tool.

So why more...

I can't say I've experienced the performance issues that Count Sessine has below. I've been running Cornerstone since a relatively early 1.x release and it's been pretty much rock solid, acceptably speedy (not as quick as the common dine, true) and I've been able to get operations done without too much hassle.

Still the best SVN client on OS X in my opinion.

So why do I say that it's 'garbage'? I wouldn't say that unless it was really, really bad - bad enough that you'll abandon it within a month of shelling out for a license.

Cornerstone is PAINFULLY slow. When I start my day, I want to do an svn update and then get working. Typically, at the command line or with other clients, svn update will take about 15s with a non-trivial codebase and a LAN connection. So how does this work out with Cornerstone?

Well, start up Cornerstone. Then wait. And wait. And wait some more. Maybe a good 5 minutes. It wants to do SOMETHING with your working copy. It isn't an svn status - that's quite fast (about 10s). No - whatever Cornerstone is doing with your working copy, it's done inefficiently and it takes a LONG time (5 minutes?)

So what? Just update while Cornerstone does its thing, right? Well, you can't. Cornerstone is stupidly synchronous and won't let you update until its finished its business with your working copy.

Want to find out what someone did yesterday? Look at the log, of course. svn log only takes a couple of seconds with most clients, right? Well with Cornerstone, you'll be waiting a good 3 minutes for it to stupidly ask your svn server for the same old log entries its requested dozens of times before. Because it doesn't cache them. Wonderful!

This tool isn't fit for use. Its clear that either the Cornerstone team don't dogfood and use their own tool, or if they do, then Cornerstone itself is trivially small and they don't realize just how bad it is with a medium-size codebase. Adding insult to injury, these guys actually have a web page where you can 'vote' for new features! Tolerable performance on a Core i7 with a flash hard drive ISN'T A FEATURE! IT'S MANDATORY!

I should point out that if you want the best svn client for OSX, you're probably stuck with either the command line client, or SmartSVN (as much as it pains me to recommend SmartSVN). At least SmartSVN basically works and doesn't make you wait 5 minutes at a time to accomplish trivial tasks. Its got a pretty miserable UI, but at least you can get your work done.

I've never had a problem with it caching log entries. It definitely caches them in the currentuser/cache folder. Only bug that annoys me with simple work around is it only queries for new log entries every OTHER time you click "log". In other words. you click log, get new entries. Click log again, even an hour later, nota. Click it a 3rd time, it gets new entries. 4th, nota. Not sure why it is coded this way but it is. i used to quit and reopen app before i realized I just had to click it twice for new entries. However, it definitely pulls only new entries and reads old ones from cache.

Now if you are a user who obsesses about emptying caches often for space, or cause some run of mill optimizer utility says to, this will make your logs not stay cached.

Ever since they switched to App Store distribution, the updates (even to non App Store version) are extremely slow… This is getting rather annoying, especially when they can't fix an extremely easy-to-fix bug - I know, I'm a programmer as well - which was reported several months ago. Their reason for the delay? App Store review delays. Well and why should I care? I didn't buy the App Store version (was a customer from well before it became available there), and moreover, I WOULD NOT buy at all if it was only available on App Store. JUST for the reason stated above (I don't want to support slow response/update cycles always resulting in App Store distribution switches..)
Oh well. Still the best SVN app for Mac, but now not as much loved.

Not true anymore I guess? At least seems you can get it directly from the developer at the time I'm writing this.

Can an admin please remove my comment below? I misread Macd's text and was to hasty with the ”Submit” button.

I've been through every SVN software client on the Mac. I've paid thousands of dollars for crap like PerForce, and tested every thing in between. Cornerstone is the most elegant highly functional SVN client to date. It's beautiful, simple to use, and never gets in the way of doing our work. It also has the best REPAIR features of any SVN client. You screw something up? Cornerstone can usually repair things with the select of a menu item. Highly recommend.

Clean uncluttered GUI. One of, if not the best app in its kind. Makes comparing versions a doodle.
Highly recommended !!
