Version Control

Versioning is a system for software developers to support collaborative development in a team, and track changes to source code over time from multiple developers. MPLAB® X IDE supports version control through a variety of third party tools. Below are several links to help you get started with these tools. This list is by no means comprehensive but should provide a good starting point.
