Revisions Control, a WordPress plugin for managing revisions

Starting with WordPress 2.6, whenever you update a post or a page, a copy of the previous version of the content is automatically saved as a “revision”. While this is a very useful feature (as you can at any time compare the current content to a previous one and revert if it’s the case), WordPress does not give any means of managing these revision.

With the help of the Zebra Revisions Control WordPress plugin, you can either deactivate the feature entirely or instruct WordPress to always keep only a limited number of revisions per posts/pages.
