Subversion control (SVN)

Subversion is a free/open source version control system (VCS). That is, Subversion manages files and directories, and the changes made to them, over time. This allows you to recover older versions of your data or examine the history of how your data changed.

It is mostly used in web development (web project).

Installation on Ubuntu:
