Mercurial 2.9

A fast, distributed, Open Source and lightweight Source Control Management system
Mercurial is an open source, free, lightweight, fast, and distributed Source Control Management (SCM) system specifically designed to efficiently support handling of very large distributed projects.

Mercurial offers an easy-to-use and intuitive interface, and it is currently used by a wide range of projects that require reliable, distributed and fast revision control, such as OpenSolaris, MoinMoin, or Xen.

Mercurial is also very easy to learn, and it just works. Two quick start tutorials about how to clone a project and push changes, as well as to create a project and commit, are provided on the project’s homepage.
