CVS offers outstanding benefits for version and source code control. It's a useful tool for any professional developer - freelance, small to medium business or larger distributed teams:
- Its client-server access method lets developers access the latest code from anywhere there's an Internet connection.
- Its unreserved check-out model to version control avoids artificial conflicts common with the exclusive check-out model.
- Its client tools are available on most platforms.
» Features include:
- Direct access as a Dreamweaver extension, so it can easily Checkout, Commit, Add and Update files to/from CVS
- Create new module
- Tag it a file
- Branch a file
- Release a project
- Diff a file
- Command Line for specific commands
- Authentication via all standard CVS protocols, plus Windows-specific SSPI and Active Directory (using CVSNT product)
