TortoiseSVN is an easy to use SCM / source control software for Microsoft Windows and maybe the best standalone Subversion client there is. It is implemented as a Windows shell extension, which makes it integrate seamlessly into the Windows explorer. Since it's not an integration for a specific IDE you can use it with whatever development tools you like.

Another advantage of this shell integration is that not only web or software developers can use it but all the people who don't have the development tools installed, for example translators, doc writers etc.

Big Picture

*Can create a graph of all revisions/commits.

*You can then easily see where you created a tag/branch or modified a file/folder.

*Graphs of commit statistics of the project.

*Easy comparing of two branches or tags.

Since TortoiseSVN is a Windows shell extension, it integrates in the file explorer. That means you can use it with the tool you are most familiar with.

all commands are available directly from the windows explorer.You can choose which entries TortoiseSVN should show in the top context menu and which it should put in the submenu.

only commands that make sense for the selected file/folder are shown. You won't see any commands that you can't use in your situation.

As a Subversion client, TortoiseSVN has all the features of Subversion itself, including:

*Most current CVS features.

*Directories, renames, and file meta-data are versioned.

*Commits are truly atomic.

*Branching and tagging are cheap (constant time) operations.

*Efficient handling of binary files.

Wow, so you know about SVN? :whoa:

Not many non-developers know about source control management systems.

Software like TortoiseSVN is useful for advanced computers users and developers who either would like to collaboratively work on a software with other developers, or would like to fetch the latest development source code from the the development source tree and compile it from source to live on the bleeding-edge. :yes:

Great software for advanced users and developers. Not for mortals. ;)
