Major update adds faster performance and highly requested features to benefit the Apache Subversion™ community.

Shelving feature in Cornerstone 4

Shelving drives development efficiencies across teams.

"Cornerstone 4.0 is the premiere desktop app for SVN and we are excited to share it with the world,” said Paul Lynch, Assembla CEO.

Assembla, the world’s only provider of Enterprise Cloud Version Control (ECVC), has released the newest version of Cornerstone, the # 1 SVN client for Macs. Assembla acquired Cornerstone in January of 2018.

“Cornerstone 4.0 is an extension of the work we’ve done to bring best of breed technologies to the Assembla portfolio, offering modernized, highly secure options for users worldwide. We will continue to search for complementary tools to acquire and integrate them into our ecosystem.” said Paul Lynch, CEO at Assembla. “From never before offered features, to impressive performance gains, Cornerstone 4.0 is the premiere desktop app for SVN and we are excited to share it with the world.”

Cornerstone 4.0 is the first SVN graphical user interface (GUI) client with two of the most requested Subversion features: shelving and checkpointing. Assembla is first to market with these features, which have been requested by the developer community for more than 7 years.

Key Improvements:

Shelving: Users can temporarily set aside in-process changes and revert back to the working tree to quickly fix a bug on production. Shelved changes can be retrieved and work continued seamlessly, driving development efficiencies across teams.

Checkpointing: Users can work on a collection of local changes, save checkpoints of the work and restore the working copy to one of their previous checkpoints, improving quality in an organization’s code by ensuring no mistakes are committed to the central repository.

Performance: Cornerstone 4 has been rebuilt and optimized from the ground up to take full advantage of MacOS High Sierra. Cornerstone 4 provides up to 300% faster checkouts and updates compared to Cornerstone 2.x and 3.x. Additionally, Cornerstone 4 has a 3x performance improvement over previous versions, for faster overall operations and accelerated checkouts and updates.

For a limited time, users can get 20% off their first year’s subscription by visiting and using code CSTONESVN.
