Git 2.1.3 / 2.2.0 RC 1

A reliable, free and open source distributed version control system specially made to help you to efficiently and easily manage large and small projects
Git is an easy to learn and versatile control system that has a small footprint with lightning fast performance.

Branching and merging made easy

Thanks to Git you’ll be able to handle everything from small to large and complex projects with the help of features like multiple workflows, convenient staging areas and cheap local branching.

All your local branches can be independent of each other and you can quickly and effortlessly create, merge and delete the lines of development.

Thus, you can create test branches, commit a couple of times, apply patches, switch back to the original version all merge it all in. You also have the option to create separate branches for production and test purposes.

Take advantage of the feature based workflow

Moreover, you can create new branches for all new features you plan to implement and easily switch back and forth between them before deleting the ones that get merged into your main line. Another advantage provided by Git is that you can choose what you share and push only the selected branches to a given remote repository.

The great thing about Git is that if you are using a centralized workflow, then every users will have a full backup of the main server. Consequently, each of the available copies can be pushed up in order to replace the main server if the server crashes or gets corrupted.

Preserves the cryptographic integrity of your project

Furthermore, Git’s data model is capable to ensure the cryptographic integrity of every part of your project and, as a result, every file and commit is checksummed and retrieved by its checksum when checked back out.

With the help of Git’s “Staging area” / “Index” you can format and review your commits before completing them. In other words, you can stage the change you need for a given commit and stage the other change for another commit.

In conclusion, Git is a source control system that provides all the tools and features required to manage small, as well as large projects with ease.
