Do you use CVS or Subversion?What do you Think?

I have only been exposed to using CVS for version control and find it pretty straightforward and useful. The server was easy to setup on Linux and the maintenance of it has been pretty good.  However, I have been told and reading that Subversion is CVS on steroids and just wanted to get a public opinion before I start messing around with it.  Has anyone used both and can comment on the pros and cons of each?

Is it easy to setup on Linux? Does it mesh well with Eclipse, any Mac GUI? 

The usual questions!! Thanks and have a great day today.

Lighthouse Pro by Raymond Camden

I just recently downloaded LightHouse Pro by Raymond Camden. Lighthouse pro is a ColdFusion bug tracking application. It is incredibly easy to install and best of all it runs on a MySQL backbone. Actually you can also use access and MS SQL.

It can create different project loci and assign the loci to the projects. You can create different users that will be involved in the projects. Every time an issue is created/revised, emails can be send out to different users. A great statistics page where you can see the QA progress of your projects.

Overall this utility has organized all my debugging and enhancements for my projects. I truly recommend this utility in order to better organize yourselves in your software development.

It is very hard to loose track of bugs and enhancements over the life time of a project and this utility really brings this issues to a close.

Keep up the good work Ray!! I am a true fan!!

Eclipse and CFECLIPSE in use.

I finally have made my complete move for CF development to eclipse. Yesterday, while I was installing a fresh copy of eclipse, I realized the new updated download of ftp and web-dav support.

Eclipse's support for FTP has been moderate of some sorts, but it seems that now they got it.

I finished my installation of CFEclipse, connected to my dev server and started working.

This is a great development platform for true developers.
