Subversion book


This version control tool (svn server + tortoise client) can be useful for larger modeling projects.


  • To bypass firewalls/routers use http protocol via Apache
  • Diff of Excel files seems to work with tortoise (cells that are different are shown in red)

  1. SourceForge (and JavaForge etc) provides a free subversion repository for each project (which have to be open source though).

    Subversion is definitely better then CVS and visual source safe, but one version control tool to keep an eye on is git. Git is very different because it's build for branching and merging. Some high profile projects are already switching from subversion to git (they switched from CVS to subversion years ago). As the git tools and plugins mature, it might be a very interesting version control tool.
