Cornerstone and OS X 10.10 Yosemite

Filed under: Cornerstone,General — Administrator @ 8:46 am

Yesterday Apple announced that OS X 10.10 Yosemite, which was introduced at this year’s WWDC, is now available for download from the App Store.

We have been running the various beta versions of Yosemite since June. Cornerstone didn’t run perfectly on early builds of the OS, but Apple has been busy fixing bugs and Cornerstone 2.7.14 runs fine on the final version.

However, Yosemite brings with it a significant overhaul of the Mac user interface. Such sweeping changes impact all Mac apps, and Cornerstone is no different. While the app runs fine on Yosemite, it doesn’t look particularly at home on the new OS.

But this will soon change. We have been hard at work polishing Cornerstone to fit right in on Yosemite and will release an update to 2.7 in the coming weeks to address the visual glitches and inconsistencies in the current version. The release is almost ready, but we’ve been delayed by Apple’s recent requirement that all new submissions to the App Store are built with Xcode 5.

Migrating to Apple’s newer toolchain unfortunately took longer than we anticipated, in particular because the older versions of Subversion included with Cornerstone (specifically 1.4 and 1.5) are no longer compatible with the compiler and libraries included with this version of Xcode. As a result, the next version of Cornerstone will drop support for these older versions of Subversion.

1.6, 1.7 and 1.8 will still be supported of course, but if you still need compatibility with 1.4 and 1.5 then you’ll be best served by sticking with 2.7.14.

Resolved Issues

  • Cornerstone cannot open versioned directories contained within unversioned directories that themselves are contained in working copies.

Cornerstone 2.7.13 Release Notes

Filed under: Cornerstone,Release Notes — Administrator @ 7:21 am

2.7.13 is a free upgrade for all Cornerstone 2 license holders that fixes issues uncovered since the release of 2.7.

See Cornerstone 2.7 Release Notes for more information on the new features and improvements introduced with 2.7.

2.7.13 runs on OS X 10.6, 10.7, 10.8 and 10.9.

Resolved Issues

  • Cornerstone no longer displays an error when attempting to open a 1.8-format working copy.
  • The correct repository type icon is now used in the recent item menus in the HTTP(S) and SVN pages of the add/edit repository window.
  • Revision range “+” (i.e. – HEAD) in the revision range field is not displayed correctly when tokenized.

  • Ruby regex string literals containing escaped forward slashes are not rendered correctly in the compare view.

Update on Cornerstone and Subversion 1.8

Filed under: Cornerstone — Administrator @ 4:02 am

In September we posted about our plans for adding Subversion 1.8 support to Cornerstone. We wanted to provide you with an update on what has happened since then.

As described in our original post, a bug in the Serf HTTP library used by Subversion 1.8 broke apps such as Cornerstone that include usernames in URLs specified to Subversion. Serf’s developers quickly implemented a fix back in September 2013. This fix was released as part of Serf 1.3.2 on October 14th.

A Serf developer notified the Subversion project with a post to svn issue #4423 back in September. He also confirmed that the behavior was identical to the older Neon HTTP library with another post on December 31st but as of today this fix has not yet been integrated into an official Subversion release.

At the end of February we noticed that a dependency file in the Subversion source code repository was updated in r1566504 to reference Serf 1.3.4. This gave us hope that Subversion project might be moving forward with rolling out a fix for this issue, but as of today this change has not been integrated into Subversion’s 1.8.x branch, which continues to reference Serf 1.2.1.

We have again requested clarification from the Subversion developers, but believe that there is now a distinct possibility that Serf 1.3.2+ will not be integrated before the release of Subversion 1.9.

So what are we to do?

We understand that Cornerstone’s users are waiting for support for Subversion 1.8 and we’re disappointed too that this regression in Subversion 1.8 was not addressed earlier. We had hoped that this issue would be addressed by the Subversion project, but we can’t wait indefinitely, so we’re preparing an update to Cornerstone 2.7 for release in the next 2-4 weeks.

This version of Cornerstone will include Serf 1.3.4 and will therefore work as expected with both your existing and new 1.8 working copies. However, other Subversion clients such as the svn command-line tool will not be able to use these working copies to connect to repositories via HTTPS unless they too are updated to use Serf 1.3.2+.

For this reason 1.8 will not be the default format for working copies checked out by Cornerstone, and the user will be warned about potential compatibility issues when attempting to check out a 1.8 working copy for the first time.

Xcode users should continue to use 1.7-format working copies for compatibility with the version of svn included with Apple’s Command-Line Tools for Xcode.

Many thanks for your patience.
