VOODOO SERVER VERSION CONTROL FOR CODEWARRIOR – PRICE REDUCTION
HAGENBERG, AUSTRIA, MAY-15-2000 — UNI SOFTWARE PLUS GmbH announced at
Apple’s World Wide Developer Conference a new offer that makes their
flagship version control tool VOODOO Server available at a dramatically
reduced, limited time, price. This special limited time offer is designed
to make professional version control tools easily available for single
programmers and version control newcomers.
In its debut year VOODOO Server has earned acclamation and established
itself as the premiere version control system for software developers using
Metrowerks CodeWarrior. With this special offer, UNI SOFTWARE PLUS is
making VOODOO Server available to first time purchasers for only $79
(regular list price is $229). This will be a limited time offer.
“We are thrilled at the numbers of developers who have adopted VODOOO
Server during its first year. But, we also know that many more are
hesitating to apply version control for two reasons: version control can
seem complicated, and many developers don’t appreciate the time and
resource savings version control offers until they’ve used it,” said
Christoph Reichenberger, VODOOO product manager. “Making VOODOO Server
available at this special low price, means we’re giving every Macintosh
developer a chance to apply version control to their projects — to see how
easy it can be, and how dramatic an effect it can have on their programming
habits and productivity.”
“Version control is one of those crucial aspects of a development project
that many developers just don’t think about. We all know we need to do it.
But it can be a hassle, so we convince ourselves regular backups and the
UNDO command are good enough. Then we end up loosing days, weeks, even
months of development time because we can’t find the right version of that
crucial piece of code,” observed Nick DeMello, Editor of MacTech Magazine.
“The power of VOODOO Server is it makes doing the right thing easy, you
find yourself managing complex projects, revisions, and project variants
without having to think about doing it.”

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 included
CodeWarrior plug-in provide reliable and robust version control without
adding the administrative overhead that often accompanies version control.
VOODOO Server is the successor of 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 unique client/server architecture 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 Macintosh 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.
VOODOO Server offers a floating license scheme, which does not force users
to buy one full license for every computer. Instead, one server license
allows you to install and run the server on one machine and the client on
the same computer or any number of others. The number of client licenses
you purchase beyond the first one (included with the server) determines the
maximum number of simultaneouos client connections the server will allow.
Additional client licenses are available for only $119 each.
