JAPANESE VERSION OF VERSION CONTROL TOOL VOODOO AVAILABLE
Hagenberg, AUSTRIA, October-07-1998, UNI SOFTWARE PLUS GmbH today announced that a Japanese localisation of the company’s award-winning version control tool VOODOO v1.8.1 is available now. The Japanese version is functionally identical with the English version but fully localised for the Japanese language.
“It was always our understanding that the Japanese market needs well localised software, but it was also clear for us that a Japanese localisation can never be done without a good local partner. This is why we are especially happy that we found K’s Room as a competent and reliable Japanese partner company which did the localisation for us,” said Christoph Reichenberger, VOODOO product manager, UNI SOFTWARE PLUS. “We are looking forward to better serving the Japanese market with our version control solution”.
“When I first came across VOODOO it took just some hours to know that this is the version control solution we want to use for our software projects. After having used VOODOO for some weeks I knew that this product is a must not only for developers but for all Macintosh users who have to deal with different versions of files. This was the reason for us to start the localisation of VOODOO as a co-operation project between UNI SOFTWARE PLUS and K’s room,” said Ken Ishimoto, President & CEO of K’s Room. “Now that the localisation is complete and the Japanese version is available we are even more excited about the product and are sure that the Japanese version of VOODOO will help many Japanese Macintosh users to keep track of all the different versions of their files with even more ease”.

The Quick Guide to VOODOO!
VOODOO (Versions Of Outdated Documents organised Orthogonally) is a stand-alone version control tool, with a neat graphical user interface. It offers simple and clear access for managing 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 organisation of revisions and variants leads to a much clearer arrangement than in other tools which use trees for organising variants and revisions.
VOODOO uses delta storage for storing different versions, which can yield 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 is suitable for projects of any size, from small (an individual author) to large (many developers). A flexible locking mechanism ensures data integrity when several users work on the same project.
VOODOO At A Glance:
* Stand-alone version control tool for all sorts of projects
(software development, Web publishing, design, CAD, documentation, etc.)

Integration with Alpha to follow soon.

projects (not only of single files)
* Easy-to-use graphical project browser gives access to all

non-text files) gains savings of 95 % and more
* View differences between versions not only for text files (currently

* Administration of users with hierarchical access rights
