Can't imagine any development tool being created today without source control support (and I don't mean just the crappy MSSCCI), but who knows. Found no mention of that issue. Any chance WebMatrix could be used with source control tools like TFS, Mercurial,
Subversion and so on?
(Using the great Tortoise* tools is always an option when working with files, but I personally prefer IDE integration over Explorer integration)

Unfortunately there is no integration in the IDE for any source control tools. This is mostly for beginners, and I don´t think the tools are made for building a new Facebook (even it it´s possible).
If you want source control, I would suggest you to use SVN or similar separate.

I can't imagine any professional level IDE being built without support for source control either. But, as Mikael said, WebMatrix is most definitely not targeted at anyone who is likely to even know what source control is. If you are using source control,
put WebMatrix back in its box. It's not for you

Why is that so? I find it kinda useful for smaller projects, because you still have a power of .NET framework and you have more complete control over every aspect of application because you can made it directly from scratch.

You have as much control in both Web Forms and MVC, and it´s also easier to get control of more things using Web Forms and MVC.
If you want source control you can still use SVN or similar.

A PHP Ide that I use supports this in a fairly simple, straightforward way that web matrix should look at supporting. When you right click on any file or folder in the tree view, one of the menu items is "Shell Menu". When you hover over that, you get the
same context menu as you would get if you opened the file in explorer and right clicked on it there. That means that when you install things like TortoiseSVN, that adds SVN options to your shell menu, you can easily access it from the editor.
For the web matrix team, is this a possible feature, as it would solve many of the problems you could potentially have with adding items to the webmatrix context menu.

I have been building really small apps with some help from college buddies. We allhave grown to like (http://www.sourcegear.com/diffmerge/index.html) - it's free and its well built. Works well with web projects built using razor syntax and webmatrix goodies.
