Download of the day: Bazaar Distributed Version Control System

There are many really good VCS tools such as Subversion and Git. Bazaar is a decentralized revision control system. Revision control involves keeping track of changes in software source code or similar information, and helping people work on it in teams.Bazaar features
=> Reliable
=> Ease of use
=> Portable software (Works on *nix / Windows)
=> Flexible
=> GPL Code
=> Good performance
=> Safe with your data etc

The program is simple to deploy. It doesn’t require a dedicated server. Any Web server that includes ftp will work as a Bazaar server. Canonical also states that because developers can commit their code locally whenever they want, they’re less dependent on the central code base.
