Version Control Systems

tags = []

It's been a while since I've written about version control and the landscape has changed quite a bit since then. Writing your own SCM seems to be the latest hype...

I'm currently using Subversion for most of the projects I work on (including those on Windows). Several other systems look interesting. I especially like darcs, as it is written in Haskell and has an elegant UI, though it is horribly slow. Bzr looks very promising, though its doesn't really store data efficiently at the moment.

Another very interesting project, and a very useful one now with all the various SCM's around, is tailor - a tool that can do conversions between the various projects.
