Apache Subversion
Version control system

Subversion is a centralized version control system. It is developed as a free software project of the Apache Software Foundation.

The main features of Apache Subversion are:

  • 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.
  • Changelists.
