Golden standard is git, which is a bit hard to understand without previous experience of source control and a bit too intricate to use, especially from command line. Also it's hard to see the benefit of git versus the still rampant zip file + changelog + diff when working alone or in pairs. Palce 3+ people on a complex project and the time investment in learning git pays, especially if aided by a good client (which is NOT the command line*).

* Command line git is powerful and it does make sense but it's a 10.000 levers and push buttons tools, awesome for a full time integrator but time consuming and error prone for a developer whose main competences are code, design, architecture of the product. If it was not for a particular git client, I would never have been sold on git itself. SourceTree is free and has a terrific log analyzer but the UI to manage the repository sucks, the tool I use (not mentioning because it's free only for personal use) has a less than optimal log analyzer but a perfect UI to manage the repository.
