Subject: VOODOO Personal 2.0 Released –
The Version Organizer that Saves the Evolution of Your Work
San Francisco, CA (MacWorld EXPO 2001), January-9-2001, UNI SOFTWARE PLUS
is proud to announce the immediate availability of VOODOO Personal 2.0.
VOODOO Personal 2.0 is the much improved successor of VOODOO 1.8 which won
the MacWorld/MacTech Eddy award in 1997. “We are extremely happy about the
new sibling in the VOODOO family of version control products. VOODOO
Personal will finally solve the problems of many people working in a broad
range of different areas, from web publishers to designers, from book
writers to musicians.” said Christoph Reichenberger, VOODOO product
manager. “With VOODOO Personal you can store all versions of your documents
and restore previous versions whenever you want. And since VOODOO
Personal’s efficient delta compression technique gains savings of up to 99
%, this does not even cost you significant extra disk space.”
“For years, programmers have used a variety of methods of version control
to track versions and changes.” said Neil Ticktin, publisher of MacTech
Magazine. “Now, this process can be used on all kinds of work product —
whether you are a musician, writer, lawyer, publisher, or virtually anyone
who works on projects through a process of different versions. And VOODOO
is some of the best technology out there to do exactly that.”
Besides new features and improvements, VOODOO Personal 2.0 is even easier
to use than its predecessor. Storing files in the VOODOO Personal archive
is as easy as dragging the files to the VOODOO Personal window. Besides a
smooth integration with BBEdit, CodeWarrior, and Alpha, VOODOO Personal
comes with a Contextual menu plug-in that makes its functionality instantly
available in a broad range of applications including the Finder. The
documentation has been completely redesigned and a tutorial section has
been added that gets you started in less than one hour.
Once you have seen how easy it can be to protect your creative work against
loss and accidental changes, you will never want to start modifying a
document before you know that the current version is saved in a VOODOO

For Newcomers: The Quick Guide to VOODOO Personal
Have you ever deleted a document by mistake – or made a change to a
document only to find that you would like to undo the change a few days
later? Or did you ever want to know what a document looked like two months
VOODOO Personal protects your documents against accidental deletion and
unwanted changes. It stores all versions of your documents and lets you
restore previous versions whenever you want.
The neat graphical user interface lets you easily browse your version
archive, view the history of your documents and retrieve earlier versions.
But archiving earlier versions of your documents also leads to an
additional advantage. For selected file types (including text files and MS
Word files) you can even investigate the differences between two versions
of a document.
VOODOO Personal’s efficient delta compression technique stores only the
differences between the versions and saves up to 99 % of disk space. VOODOO
Personal achieves this amazing compression rate for most types of documents
including files created with MS Word, Quark XPress, Freehand, Canvas,
FileMaker, 4th Dimension, etc. In addition to the files themselves, VOODOO
Personal also keeps track of the folder structures containing the documents.
VOODOO Personal can also handle different users with hierarchically ordered
access rights. If you are working in a group, the problem of simultaneous
updates of the same file by different users can be avoided by means of a
flexible locking mechanism.
