IMPORTANT KEYCHAIN CHANGES
All passwords stored in the keychain need to be re-entered. We're sorry for the hassle, but there is no way to prevent that, as Versions is now signed using the Leitmotif company certificate. We threw in some improvements to make this change more worthwhile for you.
Passwords for subversion servers will now be stored in an area of the keychain that is synched by iCloud. If you have multiple Macs, you only need to enter passwords on one machine, on others they will be pre-filled for you.
Several improvements to the authentication process were made, hopefully resolving a few esoteric bugs and making things more future-proof.
When you select a bookmark related to a repository in the sidebar for the first time, you will be required to authenticate for that repository. Follow the process below, unless you have the repository password readily available.
Make sure to remember the server from the URL. You may select and copy it from the URL field.
Click into the Password field.
Select the menu item Passwords… that appears.
In the new sheet (provided by macOS) that shows up above, authenticate Keychain access using your user password, TouchID, or your Apple Watch, depending on configuration.
Enter the server from the URL (see above) into the search field.
This should show an entry in the list below. Click that entry. This will close the secondary sheet and pre-fill the password.
New: The commit sheet now offers to reuse previous commit messages.
Fix: Fix an issue where the main window could no longer be closed after an alert was shown.

New: You can enable labels for the toolbar.
