Disappointingly, we continue to see development teams embrace the practice of feature branching to isolate work and defer integration. Feature branches commonly cause significant pain and unpredictability during late merges, but more importantly prevent the continual design improvement necessary to maintain high quality software. We recommend continuous integration and branch by abstraction as an alternative to feature branching.
