Version Control - store history/timeline of revisions

It would be nice if there was a way to have multiple versions of a design living in one document. Right now we'll have a v1 wireframe and will be reviewing features for v2. I typically lock that version and then create a new file called v2 and start making changes. Would be nice if they could be linked somehow verses multiple file versions.

    Would LOVE to see this feature in some way shape or form. We currently version on our network using a naming convention and an archive folder. Allowing us to version in one document with the ability to comment on the version before moving to the next would be a dream.

    Any updates on this? This feature would have come in handy today. =(

    Version control concerning file versions and shared links needs good management atm. The "older shared links" kind of disappear and cannot be edited. Also would be awesome to have a "link to current state" and links to "shared states" that act as frozen history.

    It would be nice to have an idea when this feature will be shipped? It was introduced years ago at an adobe conference.

    Do you have the release of this feature planned for 2019?
    Currently working for a big company that is wondering what software to choose.
    Versioning is pretty much a game changer...

    This feature is much needed one. Please consider this and the must-have features like rulers and this version control

    +1 to ScottCs comment. Fell in love with the concept shown at adobe Max a few years ago but realizing now it’s too limiting. Need more documentation to what has been done, when and by whom. A concept for branches is probably needed to in order to be used by a team (unless that’s solved in a smart way with live collaboration).

    Tricky one for sure 😊but very excited to see the solution and being able to convert people from the Abstract app.

    Hey Demian, when do you think the feature will be available in XD? :)

    (as my request "Git friendly linked symbols" has been merged with this)

    I was not asking version control. My request was about flexibility of workflow with linked symbols. For example, Photoshop looks for four locations to find a source file and keeping relative path is enough to keep objects to be linked.

    Could you undo the merge as I believe my request had got some votes.
    Thanks!
