ViewCVS, a web application for browsing CVS and Subversion source code control repositories, has become ViewVC — the name change VC = Version Control is fitting, since ViewCVS (the beta version, at least) has supported Subversion for quite a while. And, the ViewVC project has moved from SourceForge.net to Tigris.org, which is an interesting move. I bet that this means there will be more and better support for Subversion, which is also hosted by Tigris.org. I am pretty happy about this, since WebSVN (which I am currently using) seems to have died off about a year ago, and it didn’t quite seem “finished”. Another interesting event is that the CVS Development has moved to GNU.
If you know me, you’ve probably heard me mention how much I love Subversion and TortoiseSVN. If you don’t use source code control, you simply have to try TortoiseSVN. You don’t need a server, or anything like that — just create a local repository on your computer. If you don’t use Subversion because your employer makes you use something else, which is a pain to use… well, I won’t go there
