TortoiseSVN is a really easy to use Revision control / version control / source control software for Windows. It is based on Subversion. TortoiseSVN provides a nice and easy user interface for Subversion.
It is developed under the GPL. Which means it is completely free, including the source code. But just in case you don't know the GPL too well: you can use TortoiseSVN to develop commercial applications or just use it in your company without any restrictions.
Since it's not an integration for a specific IDE like Visual Studio, Eclipse or others, you can use it with whatever development tools you like.
As a Subversion client, TortoiseSVN has all the features of Subversion itself, including:
- Most current CVS features.
- Directories, renames, and file meta-data are versioned.
- Commits are truly atomic.
- Branching and tagging are cheap (constant time) operations.
- Efficient handling of binary files.
Due to a new bug introduced in the svn library 1.5.1 we're now releasing TortoiseSVN 1.5.2 which has a workaround implemented for that bug. This fixes crashes when resolving conflicts during a merge.
- BUG: the "SVN Copy and Add" right-drag menu was not shown. (Stefan)
- BUG: Editing a conflict during a merge resulted in a crash.
Note: this is only a workaround for a bug in the svn library which
won't work in all situations. (Stefan)
- BUG: Log cache CSV export: fix record line endings. (Stefan Fuhrmann)
- BUG: Log cache CSV export: user revprops list incomplete. (Stefan Fuhrmann)
- BUG: The "save revision to..." context menu in the log dialog was shown
even if multiple revisions were selected. (Stefan)
