Mercurial – a free, source control management tool


Mercurial is a free, distributed source control management tool. It offers you the power to efficiently handle projects of any size while using an intuitive interface. It is easy to use and hard to break, making it ideal for anyone working with versioned files.

Traditional version control systems such as Subversion are typical client-server architectures with a central server to store the revisions of a project. Where as, Mercurial is truly distributed, giving each developer a local copy of the entire development history. This way it works independent of network access or a central server. Committing, branching and merging are fast and cheap.

Features of Mercurial are –

. Its a Distrubuted Architecture
. It works very Fast
. Developed Platform Independent and hence works on all major platforms
. Functionality can be increased with Extensions
. It uses same command sets like Subversion so Easy to Use
