VOODOO SERVER VERSION CONTROL FOR CODEWARRIOR – v 1.2 AVAILABLE
HAGENBERG, AUSTRIA, July-17-2000 — UNI SOFTWARE PLUS GmbH is pleased to
announce the immediate availability of the new version 1.2 of their
flagship version control tool VOODOO Server.
“The new version of VOODOO Server introduces a feature that was often
requested by our customers. Files are now compressed and encrypted before
they are transferred between the client and the server. The results are
considerable performance improvements especially over slow communication
lines together with higher security when using VOODOO Server over the
Internet,” said Christoph Reichenberger, VODOOO product manager. “The other
good news is that VOODOO Server now comes in form of an installer
application. This makes it not only easy for existing users to upgrade to
the new version, but also further significantly reduces the startup efforts
to implementing version control.”
New features at a glance:
+ VOODOO Server now transfers files in compressed and encrypted form
between the client and a remote VOODOO Server.
+ VOODOO Server now comes in form of an installer.
+ AppleScript templates for fetching whole projects
have been added.
+ VOODOO Server no longer requires user interaction when the
database is being closed via AppleScript.
+ Some other minor fixes and enhancements have been made.

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. Check

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 simultaneous client connections the server will allow.
