Hagenberg, AUSTRIA, September-22-1999, UNI SOFTWARE PLUS GmbH is pleased to
announce the immediate availability of the new version 1.1 of their
flagship version control tool VOODOO Server.

The AppleScript examples not only show VOODOO Server’s powerful scripting
capabilities, but can also be used as they are. Some of them can be invoked
from CodeWarrior’s script menu, and others can be used a droplets for
performing version control tasks from the Finder.

For Newcomers – the Quick Guide to VOODOO Server!
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.

The package includes a tutorial that teaches all important aspects within
just a few hours.
Availability and Pricing
VOODOO Server can be ordered online directly from UNI SOFTWARE PLUS as well

VOODOO Server offers a floating license scheme, which does not force you to
buy one full license for every computer. Instead, one server license
entitles you to install and run the server on one and the client on any
number of computers. The number of client licenses you purchase determines
the number of concurrent client connections the server will allow.
