I put ClioSoft's new "Visual Design Diff" tool in the "best" category. The color-based views of schematic and layout differences should help the designer with some "eye-popping" visual queue's to the different versions. This is very helpful for solving human errors...

I was also impressed with ClioSoft SOS when I used it. The unbeatable SOS feature is its capability to version track *directories* as well as files. CVS poorly handles directories, you can't revert or track groups of files other than by tagging them or remembering a given date...
