:Unsure: 7.1b released today? I thought we were already there! Perhaps I need to pay a lot more attention to those updates. I think Git is trying to take over the world its all I ever seem to hear about now.

I assumed it was released today because of this tweet. I can't find a release date anywhere to verify, though...oh, here it is, yeah the beta was released today. Yes, Git/Github seem to be very prominent. SVN and Mercurial - not so much. I'm still figuring them out though. Found some excellent resources today: Mercurial: the Definitive Guide (PDF download)Pro Git (PDF Download, also)Version Control with Subversion

Thanks! I was meaning to ask, have you tried using versioning with your documents as well? I'm still kind of structuring my development environment and I heard that some people use Mercurial and SVN to track document changes (pdf, text files and so on).

Beyond README files and changelogs, I have not used my VCS like that before. But I've thought about it before because I really like the idea of having a central remote repository and being able to edit and update files from anywhere.

It is a good idea especially if you can find a document editor than is vcs aware. Libre Writer mentions version control in the manual but I'm still clueless on usage. I noticed that most vcs providers provide some kind of wiki service (mostly the paid version) for note taking though.

Yeah, I guess you're right. Both BitBucket and Github offer a free wikis with your projects. I'm not sure if they can be updated via VCS though. That would be interesting to find out.
