General Development CVS, part of the glue that holds open source development together, shows its age. Many competitors have emerged recently, fixing misfeatures and adding new ideas. Shlomi Fish (of the version control comparison fame) explores several current open source version control systems that may be better than CVS for your needs. Email Shlomi on how to add info for your favorite VCS on his comparison page.

Subversion is in beta, so they are not redesigning the API. And there is no "absolute dependence" on WebDAV. You have the option of using WebDAV/Apache or the standalone server, which uses its own protocol.

The standalone server is easier to set up, but Apache/WebDAV has many advantages. For example, you can have an autoversioning folder that you mount from windows as a web folder. Then, whenever you create/edit/move files in that folder, it automatically versions everything.
