Version control (Git, SVN, ...) now functions with Server projects
Designer now mirrors connected remote Server projects on your local disk, allowing you to put the local copy under version control.
With this you can have remote Server projects directly under version control, you no longer need to keep a versioned local copy of the Server sandbox separately.
Version control operations such as pull, push, commit, merge, etc. work directly with the files in the local copy of the project, so you can use any standard version control tool, including built-in Eclipse plugins for Git and SVN. Designer then transparently synchronizes all changes to the Server sandbox.
