Upgrade OS X 10.5 svn from 1.4.4 to 1.6.2

Os X 10.5 comes with svn 1.4.4 preinstalled, but you might want to upgrade to the latest 1.6.2 for many reasons.

I needed the upgrade to run subclipse 1.4.x for flex builder 3. The best instruction I found on how to do this was here.

in a nutshell

1) download the universal subversion 1.6.2 binaries for mac from here : http://www.open.collab.net/downloads/community/

2) open terminal and type this : echo ‘export PATH=”/opt/subversion/bin:$PATH”‘ >> ~/.bash_profile

3) restart terminal

4) tpe svn –version and make sure you see :
—> svn 1.6.2
