The Subversion Project: Buiding a Better CVS
The release of Subversion 1.0 currently is planned for the beginning of 2002. After the release of 1.0, Subversion is slated for additions such as i18n support, intelligent merging, better changeset manipulation, client-side plugins and improved features for server administration. Also on the wish list is an eclectic collection of ideas such as distributed, replicating repositories.
A final thought from Subversion's FAQ: “We aren't (yet) attempting to break new ground in SCM systems, nor are we attempting to imitate all the best features of every SCM system out there. We're trying to replace CVS.”
If in three years Subversion is widely presumed to be the standard SCM system in the Open Source community, then the project will have succeeded. But the future is still hazy. Ultimately, Subversion will have to win this position on its own technical merits. Patches are welcome.

DevOps represents a profound change from the way most IT departments have traditionally worked: from siloed teams and high-anxiety releases to everyone collaborating on uneventful and more frequent releases of higher-quality code. It doesn't matter how large or small an organization is, or even whether it's historically slow moving or risk averse — there are ways to adopt DevOps sanely, and get measurable results in just weeks.
