Whether you're new to versioning or a Subversion expert, Cornerstone will help streamline your workflow and make version control more transparent.

  • Combines the elegance of the Mac with the power of Subversion.
  • Perfect companion to Xcode, BBEdit, TextMate, Coda, etc.

I used the software for several years, as it was good. But when the company was taken over the support became abysmal. My licence got screwed up during a renewal and I wasn't able to use the tool for several weeks because their support team was so inept. In that time I found "Xversion" - an excellent product and much cheaper - and have switched to that.

We were using our $79/year subscription license on a Macbook Pro that irrecoverably died. After 3 weeks of back and forth with their support, they finally confirmed that I couldn't deactivate the old MBP, and use the license on our new MBP. I needed to have access to the (now dead) MBP - which obviously isn't possible. So my license was lost and there's nothing they would do about it. I assume they'd have happily continued charging the yearly license fee though. Version 3 was great, but that's long gone now. We're switching to Versions.

Have been using V3 for the past 1.5 years because V4 is overpriced. The app works ok and makes it easy to use SVN but is just incredibly slow. Doing simple commits or updates on a large repository easily takes more than 10 minutes and even reading the log can take ages. Will switch to XVersion

I have also been told my license has been deactivated. Yes I installed it on a few laptops over the years but this is the nature of my work, I have a fairly high turnover of laptops but they have always been mine and I have never disclosed the key to anyone. I replied to their email but have not heard anything back. Disgraceful behaviour from the new owner and a money grab for sure. I will not be using this app again and I suggest you do the same.

Used to be a fine program, but Cornerstone has been acquired (or stolen) by Assembla, read the comments below how they deactivate valid licences. Don't say I did not warn you

Cornerstone was acquired by Assembla. Versions 1, 2, and 3 were reasonably priced and licensed per user. Version 4, under Assembla has had its price increase dramatically AND switch to an ANNUAL license! Plus they appear to be licensing it PER DEVICE and no longer per user.

Assmebla sent me an email saying my key was deactivated because it was installed more than the "normal rate" (without explaining what that is). And then saying if I wanted to use it on more than one device I'd have to pay per device for extra licenses. Problem is, my receipt clearly indicates my licenses were purchased per USER. When I was recommending the software for my employer a 2 or 3 years back I reached out and confirmed it was per user, as several of us had more than one machine, and Zennaware confirmed the software is licensed to the user, not the machine, and that more than one machine was permitted provided it was all for the same user.

Assembla seems to be making a huge money grab, and they don't care if they alienate their users or not. It's a pity really, because Cornerstone has been a very nice Mac GUI for SVN (I'd otherwise give it 4.5 stars), but what Assembla is doing is not the way to keep a loyal user base. Sure they might make some short term revenue, but I can't see the majority of their users keeping it at the higher rate and these kinds of tactics. I for one will not be upgrading. Though now it seems I might no longer be able to install it again if I change machines, in essence they've stolen something I've purchased.

i'am actually using v3.0.3 without any issue...
Just downloaded new v4.0 and incapable to connect repositories... stating " Unable to connect to a repository at URL " when just launching old version simply works...
i guess something should be revised again...
Would give half a star because this is a serious major issue, but will wait for a debugged version
no time to waste. atm.

**forgot to say i've at least 30 reps so, nope!!, its not some connection issue to a particular one..

Bit annoyed that this is a paid upgrade as I had just purchased version 2. I actually prefer the older interface so I won't be upgrading.

Since the 10.10.3 Yosemite update Cornerstone now crashes to the point that it is unusable, and most basic features no longer work. Pre this update I would have given the app 5 stars. Now I'm forced to rate it 1 star. I've sent a support email and had no response, and tried communicating via Twitter also with no response. It's making me wonder if the company even exists anymore.

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.

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 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!

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.
