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.
In this week’s release, we introduced document history for cloud documents, which enables you to review previous saved versions of your document within a window, and label and preserve these versions in perpetuity. If you have suggestions for improvements on this experience, please do file them as separate tickets!

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.
When will this versioning be available?

@Demian, we're nearing a year later now - are we near seeing this released?
Martin Klausen commented
When using sketch and abstract together it’s hard to convince your team to move to XD 😓
Dominic Barnard commented
This is promising stuff - but are we still months or years away from this?
Hey Demian, when do you think the feature will be available in XD? :)
This should be more of a feature in creative cloud than as a separate plugin.
Make it happen, and yes, Git integration would be cool!
+ 1 for Git integration

+1 for Git for XD

Please, this is really needed. When do we expect this feature to be rolled out?

(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.
I really liked the linked symbols as an MVP! As one of the next steps, what I'd like to see is a better support for a Git based workflow such as,
- manage all xd documents with Git including a single source of truth
- when checked out, all linked symbols are automatically linked to their originals
When I tried links were broken and had to be fixed manually. My feeling is using Git (or other version control system) is not rare among XD users, and many people will benefit from this enhancement.
