Apache Subversion is a full-featured version control system originally designed to be a better CVS. Subversion has since expanded beyond its original goal of replacing CVS, but its basic model, design, and interface remain heavily influenced by that goal. Even today, Subversion should still feel very familiar to CVS users.
- Most CVS features.
- Directories are versioned.
- Copying, deleting, and renaming are versioned.
- Free-form versioned metadata ("properties").
- Atomic commits.
- Branching and tagging are cheap (constant time) operations.
- Merge tracking.
- File locking.
- Symbolic links can be versioned.
- Executable flag is preserved.
- Apache network server option, with WebDAV/DeltaV protocol.
- Standalone server option (svnserve).
- Parseable output.
- Localized messages.
- Interactive conflict resolution.
- Repository read-only mirroring.
- Write-through proxy over WebDAV.
- Natively client/server, layered library design with clean APIs.
- Binary files handled efficiently.
- Costs are proportional to change size, not data size.
- Bindings to programming languages.
- And more...
