At Ortus, we try to make the installation of our tools as simple as possible, while supporting a variety of platforms.  For OS X users, staying up-to-date with your CommandBox installations just got a bit easier.   

CommandBox is now an official formula in the Homebrew repository, which means, that installing stable releases of CommandBox on your Mac is as simple as:

brew install commandbox

To check for upgrades simply run:

brew update 
brew upgrade commandbox

In addition, we've created an official Homebrew tap, which allows you to easily stay up-to-date with the latest bleeding edge releases. To use our tap and prioritize tapped formulae above the official Homebrew versions, run:

brew tap ortus-solutions/boxtap 
brew tap-pin ortus-solutions/boxtap

Then your CommandBox installations and updates will automatically use the tap to determine the latest versions. Once the tap is pinned, you to install the latest bleeding edge version, run:

brew install --devel commandbox

To unpin the tap and revert back to the Homebrew repository version of Commandbox:

brew tap-unpin ortus-solutions/boxtap
brew uninstall commandbox && brew cleanup commandbox && brew install commandbox

We hope the additional support makes it easier still for developers using OS X to stay up-to-date with their favorite CFML package manager and embedded server! If you would like to propose a new Formula to be included in our tap, submit a pull request to our repo.
