Upgrading svn on Mac OS X

This is a quick way to upgrade svn (subversion) on Mac OS X.

In this particular case it was Mac OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) and svn was upgraded from v1.7 to v1.9.

  • make sure you have brew installed (just type brew in the Terminal). If not, install it using following command:
    ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
  • Update brew:
    brew update
  • Check current subversion install:
    brew info subversion
  • Install latest svn:
    brew install subversion
  • Check svn version again
    brew info subversion

If you need path to svn executable, it should be /usr/local/bin/svn
