DTS vs SSIS

In DTS packages when you right click on it, you find "Versions..". What is the equivalent of that in SSIS? When you save a package as a file, you really dont have different versions in SSIS. Is there a way to do that or save that?

I was not talking about those Versions. I am talking about like in SSIS you have version number stored after each time you save a package you get assigned a different version(can be seen under Properties window in SSIS package the lower most window)
In DTS you can call your older version(Can u?) or it just stores version numbner. File attached.

If you click on Versions, does it stores different DTS packages each time you modify a package or just history and different version numbers?

When using SSIS you can use any version control application such as Visual SourceSafe which is integrated with SSIS.

A new version of a DTS package is created when you save it. Package versions (files) are stored in the sysdtspackages table in the msdb database. Each version is stored in its own row in this table. You can delete unnecessary version from Enterprise Manager (Versions...) or directly from the sysdtspackages table.

In SSIS 2005/2008 packages you have some properties for storing version number (major, minor, build). But for storing old version you have to use version control system.

I use open source: Subversion and Ankh plug-in for Visual Studio.
