Recommended Version Control Solutions

October 21, 2005
In this day and age, all shops should be using atomic check-in version control solutions.
Subversion is the pioneer of atomic check-ins.

Subversion is a great solution. However, the new “must-have” version control feature is shelving.

Microsoft will be releasing a completely new Version Control solution in January 06.

It is called Team Foundation (TF) Version Control which is part of the Team Foundation Server product.

Team Foundation is better than Subversion because of its rich Atomic Check-in and Shelveset features.

Here is my ranking of Version Control Solutions.
  1. Team Foundation Version Control
  2. Subversion
  3. CVS
  4. VSS

Please see this snapshot view of Team Foundation’s Source Code Explorer.
