Version control software for professional teams
Bitbucket supports Version Control Solutions for Git and Mercurial.
What is a version control system?
A version control system or VCS, also know as revision control or source control system, is a software utility that tracks and manages changes to a filesystem. A VCS also offers collaborative utilities to share and integrate these filesystem changes to other VCS users. When operating at the filesystem level, a VCS will track the addition, deletion, and modification actions applied to files and directories. A repository is a VCS term which describes when VCS is tracking a filesystem. In the scope of individual source code files, a VCS will track additions, deletions, modifications of the lines of text within that file. Popular software industry VCS options include Git, Mercurial, SVN and preforce.
The benefits of version control tools
Integrating a VCS into a software development project enables a variety of organizational and management benefits. By default, a VCS on its own offers the previously discussed technical benefits of team conflict resolution and collaboration aides. A hosted VCS service wraps a default VCS and gives enhanced features. This 'enhanced VCS' is incredibly powerful and gives a transparent view into the software development process, which can traditionally be an opaque creative endeavor. The following points are some high-level benefits a hosted VCS offers.
