Bazaar highlights

Bazaar directly supports both central version control (like cvs/svn) and distributed version control (like git/hg). Developers can organize their workspace in whichever way they want on a per project basis including:

  • checkouts (like svn)

  • feature branches (like hg)

  • shared working tree (like git).

It also directly supports and encourages a large number of development best practices like refactoring and pre-commit regression testing. Users can choose between our command line tool and our cross-platform GUI application. For further details, see our website at


If you encounter any problems with Bazaar, need help understanding it, or would like to offer suggestions or feedback, please get in touch with us:

Our mission is to make a version control tool that developers LOVE to use and that casual contributors feel confident with. Please let us know how we’re going.
