Subversion 1.3.1, an open source version control system designed to replace CVS, has been released. 1.3.1 is a bug fix release. As I mentioned yesterday, I've already switched to Subversion for all my private work. The killer feature for me is that Eclipse (with Subclipse plugin) will worj with local repositories. For my public, open source work I'm still using CVS because that's what the hosts I commit to (, Codehaus, and Sourceforge) all use. However I expect that to change over time too.
