VOODOO 1.7 – NEW RELEASE OF THE POPULAR
VERSION CONTROL TOOL VOODOO AVAILABLE
NEW RELEASE OF THE VERSION CONTROL TOOL VOODOO –
MACINTOSH DRAG AND DROP SUPPORT MAKES
VERSION CONTROL PLEASANT
Hagenberg, AUSTRIA, May-1-1996. UNI SOFTWARE PLUS announced VOODOO 1.7,
a new version of its popular version control tool for the Macintosh.
The new version offers Macintosh Drag and Drop support,
locking of local files and printing of the project history.
Besides that, it provides an assortment of other usability and
performance enhancements, as well as some minor bug fixes.
“One of VOODOO’s great advantages always was its ease of use.
The easy-to-use graphical user interface makes VOODOO suitable
not only for programming projects but for projects of any kind.
The support of Macintosh Drag and Drop for maintaining the project
structure as well as for check-in as a further step in making
version control not only feasible but pleasant.” said Christoph
Reichenberger, VOODOO product manager, UNI SOFTWARE PLUS.
Another unique feature of VOODOO is its amazing delta
storage of arbitrary files with space savings of 95% and more.
In version 1.7 the delta generation process has been improved
again and is up to six times faster now.
VOODOO (Versions Of Outdated Documents Organized Orthogonally)
is a stand-alone version control tool with a neat graphical user
interface offering many features for the simple and clear management
of projects in which files evolve in numerous versions. The tool
manages not only variants and revisions of single files,
but of whole software projects (multiple files, multiple users,
multiple variants, access rights, project structure,
project history, etc.).
VOODOO differs from previous source code control systems in its
orthogonal approach to version management. This means that for
every component of a project hierarchy you can not only store
its revision history but also different variants of the same
component.The orthogonal organization of revisions and
variants leads to a much clearer organization than with other
tools which use trees for organizing variants and revisions.
VOODOO uses delta storage for storing the different versions with
savings of about 95% (up to 99%). It is not restricted to text files
but also handles files of arbitrary type (desktop publishing documents,
databases, libraries, applications, etc.)
VOODOO proves suitable for projects of any size, small (one developer)
to large (many developers). A flexible locking mechanism ensures
data integrity when several developers work on the same project.
VOODOO At A Glance:
* Clear organization of variants and revisions
* Efficient delta storage of arbitrary (text as well as non-text)
documents (about 95 % savings)
* Management of users and access rights
* Management of versions of components as well as versions
of the project structure
* Neat graphical user interface
* Easy to use
A single license of VOODOO 1.7 is priced at US$229.
Special prices for site licenses are available.
VOODOO can be ordered directly from UNI SOFTWARE PLUS as
well as from selected retailers (Apple Computer/Apple
Developer Catalog, XPlain/MacTech) in the U.S.
