Git As Latest Generation Of Version Control Systems

Git is an open source version control system rapidly growing in popularity.
Git handles very large projects, focuses on speed, effectivity and real-world usability on large projects.
If you often work offline, using Git allows you to:

  • make local commits that you can reorganize and upload later
  • have your own copy of the entire history of the project which you can peruse at your leisure
  • serve code and its history to others
  • have changes you want to share
  • work on several issues in parallel
  • save some of those experimental changes after all
  • create, merge, clone and otherwise manipulate branches cheaply and offline

"Git was initially written by Linus Torvalds with help of a group of hackers 'round the net. It is currently maintained by Junio C Hamano."
