Have anyone or know anyone any pointer to some table, where is summarised what versions of some major opensource software was included in different OS X versions?

Like in mavericsk is perl 5.16.2 (relatively new), bash only 3.2.51 (very outdated and really wondering about yosemite version ) and such.

Exists something like distrowatch.com(Linux) for OS X too?


Apple lists all open-source files grouped by OS version on their site: http://opensource.apple.com

  • It is not like a "table" for easy comparison, but thanx anyway - if nobody has a summarised table - it is a good advice :). +1 – jm666 Sep 10 '14 at 9:14
  • As I see - HTML from this site could be easily parsed. When I have more free time, maybe I'll try to write some code. – Mateusz Szlosek Sep 10 '14 at 9:30

    :) Yeah, the easiest way will be fetch the softwarename.plist whitch contains the <key>OpenSourceVersion</key> too. Therefore I suspecting than someone already done this. ;) – jm666 Sep 10 '14 at 9:34
