VOODOO Server 1.0 Released –
Robust and Easy-To-Use Version Control for CodeWarrior Developers
Hagenberg, AUSTRIA, March-22-1999, UNI SOFTWARE PLUS GmbH is pleased
to announce the immediate availability of their new flagship version
control tool VOODOO Server 1.0.
VOODOO Server is a version control system for software developers
using Metrowerks CodeWarrior under Mac OS. VOODOO Server and the
corresponding CodeWarrior plug-in provide reliable and robust version
control without adding the administrative overhead that usually
accompanies version control.
VOODOO Server is the successor to the company’s award-winning
stand-alone version control application VOODOO. The new client/server
system was designed to combine the experience from the previous
product VOODOO with state-of-the-art technology (client/server
architecture, full support of the AppleEvent Object Model, etc.).
The modern client/server architecture (which is not available in
other Macintosh version control systems) forms the basis for a highly
efficient and robust multi-user environment and avoids the risk of
database corruption. VOODOO Server’s CodeWarrior plug-in offers a
user-friendly version control system that lets you track all your
files without having to deal with additional complexity and
administrative overhead, all from inside the CodeWarrior IDE in an
easy-to-use Mac-like style.
Using an innovative combination of delta storage and compression
technology VOODOO Server yields much better compression rates than
most other version control tools. The typical savings are in the
range 95 to 99 percent. These rates are achieved not only for text
files but for files of arbitrary type.
“We are excited to offer a completely new version control tool which
follows the slogan of the platform it was designed for – it IS
DIFFERENT. VOODOO Server is so easy to use that developers can put
their project under version control within minutes. We are most happy
that we have received already much positive feedback during our
public beta cycle. Developers who avoided other version control tools
because of their complicated administration and lack of efficiency
and robustness are now happy with VOODOO Server. They confirmed that
VOODOO Server is powerful and yet easy to use – just as Macintosh
software should be,” said Christoph Reichenberger, VOODOO product
manager, UNI SOFTWARE PLUS.
