Software Version Management
Software version management is perhaps one of the first things that should be considered when working on a software project. This is especially important if you are collaborating with others. A good software version management system will allow users to check-in their changes to a code line with comments, allow merging of code lines, rolling back changes, help resolve conflicts among other features. Don't forget to include backups as part of your process.
  • SmartSVN - Has a good visual client and was easy to set up on my Linux system. I used it for a senior design project with a small group and it was fairly successful. It has a free (limited feature) version, and a full feature version is you are willing to fork out up to $70 per user.
  • Git - A free open source version control system. I know some folks who say it meets their needs. There are several GUIs available with it.
  • Perforce - This is one of the heavy hitters on the market. Its more expensive than other options mentioned, but if you want a full feature version management system for your business, this should be on your short list.
