Assembla acquires Cornerstone, a Subversion client for MacOS

Git may seem like it’s the only version control system out there sometimes. And while it’s definitely the most popular option right now, competing technologies like Subversion and Mercurial still have their fair share of users, especially in the enterprise.

It’s maybe no surprise, then, that Assembla, which offers a version control service for the enterprise with a strong focus on Subversion, today announced that it has acquired Cornerstone, one of the most popular Subversion clients for MacOS.

Assembla acquired Cornerstone, as well as Zennaware, the company behind the product. Zennaware first launched Cornerstone back in 2008, and Assembla will continue to sell and develop the client, and plans to launch version 4.0 in the coming months.

Samsung reportedly showed off foldable smartphone in private at CES

Rumours of a foldable phone by Samsung have been circulating for a while now, with impressive new developments in foldable screen technology making the release of such a device imminent. Though tech companies have been drumming up concepts for years, the technology may have finally matured enough for a commercial launch.

According to a new report, Samsung's version of a foldable smartphone, which has been dubbed the Galaxy X by many observers, is progressing nicely, with the company revealing it to select partners at a private showcase at CES 2018.

The company is said to have showcased both in-folding and out-folding smartphone designs at CES, with curvatures of 1R and 5R for the fold-in and fold-out designs, respectively.

As per one individual believed to be present at the private meeting, the phone sports a 7.3-inch display using OLED technology.

Reports suggest the company may start production of the device later this year, which would align well with earlier statements by Samsung suggesting we won't be seeing a foldable display on a smartphone until at least 2019.

Samsung may have some competition on the foldable smartphone front from not only Apple but also Microsoft, whose long-rumoured Surface Phone is also expected to feature a similar foldable display. Unlike Samsung's device, the Surface Phone may be released before the end of the year, suggesting Microsoft may beat Samsung to the punch.
