Local History in MPLAB® X IDE

Local History fills the void between version control systems and doing nothing at all. Whenever you save your project or build your project (which automatically saves it), the IDE takes a "snapshot" of all your source files. The Local History feature enables you to look back in time and compare the current version of a file with its previous incarnations, each with a time and date stamp. The built-in diff utility makes it possible to add or remove differing parts or even to revert the entire file to a previous state. By default these snapshots are saved for 7 days, but you can easily extend that to 999,999 days if you wish.
