Affordable Version Control without the Hassle

Share Article

PrestoSoft has released FtpVC v. 2.4, a full-featured version control system that uses ordinary Internet FTP connections to communicate among project team members. Unlike other version control systems that require complicated installations and maintenance on version control servers, FtpVC runs on any standard FTP server, and uses simple FTP communications to ensure that all team members know what their colleagues are working on. FtpVC is ideal for software development and maintenance teams, architectural or legal projects, and any collaborative work where two people are at risk of unknowingly working on the same part of the project simultaneously.

Unlike other version control systems that require complicated installations and maintenance on version control servers, FtpVC runs on any standard FTP server, and uses simple FTP communications to ensure that all team members know what their colleagues are working on. FtpVC is ideal for software development and maintenance teams, architectural or legal projects, and any collaborative work where two people are at risk of unknowingly working on the same part of the project simultaneously.

FtpVC provides all of the version control functions that you would expect to find in a professional system. It's easy for team members to get files, check them in and out, and label them. When someone has checked out a file, other team members will be unable to check out the same file, and will be told who is working on it and why. All team members can share common files. Even on slow Internet connections, FtpVC provides fast file listings. The program sends email notifications on every version change event that occurred to the files that it controls.

The program maintains a complete file revision history. You can watch for a specific file, and receive an email notification when that file has been checked back in. It's easy to see the differences between different file versions, allowing you to monitor changes to every facet of the project. Recursive file management is supported. FtpVC supports multiple simultaneous version control projects.

FtpVC ensures that only team members have access to project information. Files can be compressed and encrypted, allowing users from all over the world to safely work together on the same project. Email communications from the system to team members can be done via SMTP email servers with authentication.

New features in v. 2.4 include the ability to roll back a file to one of its previous versions, and the tracking of CRCs and version numbers in the file properties dialogs.

Whether you're a project manager who needs to coordinate a team effort without worrying about installing complicated server components, or a business owner who needs a simple, effective way to collaborate with customers and suppliers across the globe, FtpVC has the tools that you need.

FtpVC v. 2.4 runs under Windows 95/98/Me/NT4/2000/XP/2003, costs $50(US) for each licensed user, and may be purchased securely online from http://www.prestosoft.com/. The FTP server can reside on any platform, on your business computer or on your ISP's system. Multi-user discounts are available.
