About mercurial:
Mercurial is a new open source version control system based on the distributed model. In Mercurial, as in Subversion or CVS, developers work on a local working directory. However, unlike centralized solutions, Mercurial also stores a copy of the entire project history on each developer's machine. In this way, developers can work in parallel, even without a network connection.
