Overview

This book covers the theory behind version control and how it can help developers become more efficient, work better as a team, and keep on top of software complexity. Version control, done well, is your "undo" button for the project: nothing is final, and mistakes are easily rolled back.

This book describes Subversion 1.3, the latest and hottest open source version control system, using a recipe-based approach that will get you up and running quickly and correctly. Learn how to use Subversion the right way-the pragmatic way.

With this book, you can:

  • Keep all project assets safe—not just source code—and never run the risk of losing a great idea
  • Know how to undo bad decisions—even directories and symlinks are versioned
  • Learn how to share code safely, and work in parallel for maximum efficiency
  • Install Subversion and organize, administer and backup your repository
  • Share code over a network with Apache, svnserve, or ssh
  • Create and manage releases, code branches, merges and bug fixes
  • Manage 3rd party code safely
  • Use all the latest Subversion 1.3 features including locking and path-based security, and much more!

Now there's no excuse not to use professional-grade version control.

Whether you're new to version control in general or just Subversion itself, this book is highly recommended. Clear, concise and crammed full of useful, important and dare I say, pragmatic, advice and information. An excellent book in its own right and a worthy addition to the Starter Kit Series.
