TortoiseSVN is a popular SVN client that is used to communicate with the SVN server. It is a revision control, version control, and source control software for windows. It is based on a top Apache product 'Subversion'. It provides a splendid and easy user interface for the SVN.
It is developed under the GPL (General public license), which means it is open-source and free. The source code of the SVN is also available, so we can also develop our version.
Since it's not an integration tool for the IDE's like Eclipse, Visual Studio, or others, we can use it with any development tools we like, and with any file.
