Not on the current edition
This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the Radar Understand more

Adopt ? We feel strongly that the industry should be adopting these items. We use them when appropriate on our projects.
Starting from a challenge posed to the Linux community to stop using commercial version control, Git has proved itself. Git embodies a well architected, high performance implementation of distributed version control. Git is powerful, so it should be used with respect, but that power enables agile engineering workflows that simply cannot exist with other tools. Git’s popularity is supported by the existence of GitHub. GitHub combines public and private Git repositories, social networking, and a host of other innovative tools and approaches.

Trial ? Worth pursuing. It is important to understand how to build up this capability. Enterprises should try this technology on a project that can handle the risk.
In previous radars we recommended Distributed Version Control (DVCS) tools in general while mentioning Git and Mercurial in particular. In this edition we narrow our recommendation to only Mercurial and Git as these two have become the clear front-runners. Due to its success and the associated network effect GitHub remains the recommended option for enterprises that want to interact with the open source community.
