This is the best the author could come up with for major developments this decade?
Are you kidding?
> its fully centralized design is largely considered obsolete
> ...it is still widely used, maintained, and appropriate for a few use cases, such as for folks who require centralization and/or increased security controls for one reason or another.
Statements like this sour the whole book for me and makes me feel it's written by one whose experience is lacking.
"A few use cases" and "for one reason or another" both do sound dismissive, I agree.
For the rest most companies are using git in a way very similar to svn, but now Github/Gitlab/Bitkeeper whatever provides the role of a single authorative central server.
How many percentage of new projects use svn instead of git? That it a much better metric for how obsolete something is.
They aren't cool / widely used but definitely not obsolete if half the worlds financial systems still run on them.
