Version control systems allow you to compare files, identify differences, and merge the changes if needed prior to committing any code. Versioning is also a great way to keep track of application builds by being able to identify which version is currently in development, QA, and production. In a typical scenario where there are multiple developers working on the same project / functionality, it works as a central repository for team to keep their work updated along with detailed log time.
There are various types of versioning software available, such as Subversion SVN and git.
Subversion SVN is a free, open-source version control system designed by Apache. It is reliable, easy to use, and can handle small and large scale applications.
Git is also a free open-source version control system that is more common for Mac users. Git is especially useful for handling multiple local branches. It allows you to have different code versions simultaneously that you can independently choose to share. This means that developers can work on different requirements separately without having to do a lot of work later to merge the versions.
