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.
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 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.
Being time zone aware and transferring data in encrypted and compressed form between the client and the server, VOODOO Server is the ideal tool even for scattered work groups who are connected via the Internet.
VOODOO Server offers a rich set of version control functionality in form of an OSA compliant API. An extensive AppleEvent dictionary makes it easy for you to write your own AppleScripts to automate arbitrary version control tasks.
VOODOO Server follows the slogan of the platform it was designed for - it IS DIFFERENT. It is so easy to use that developers can put their project under version control within minutes. Even developers who avoided other version control tools because of their complicated administration and lack of efficiency and robustness are now happy with VOODOO Server. They confirmed that VOODOO Server is powerful and yet easy to use - just as Macintosh software should be...
