Mercurial

Mercurial

Mercurial is a fast, lightweight Source Control Management system designed for efficient handling of very large distributed projects.

Mercurial's major design goals include high performance and scalability, decentralized, fully distributed collaborative development, robust handling of both plain text and binary files, and advanced branching and merging capabilities, while remaining conceptually simple.

The software includes an integrated stand-alone web interface.

Mercurial is used by a number of large projects that require fast, reliable distributed revision control, such as Xen, OpenSolaris, Python and MoinMoin.
