FtpVC 2.5 Release!

I'm pleased to announce that we have finally released FtpVC 2.5, the long-awaited update to our popular serverless version control system.

As you open FtpVC 2.5, you'll find that the user interface itself looks more modern now and features more customizability: the Folders and Output panes are no longer fixed, but can now be docked, floated, and hidden at will. (Note that the following screenshots have been taken in Windows Vista, which FtpVC 2.5 fully supports.)

Another improvement in usability is that FtpVC can now be minimized to the system tray. Simply check "Minimize to the Taskbar Notification Area" under Settings | Misc, and when you minimize FtpVC, its icon resides quite snugly in the tray:

This release isn't short of function, however! Most importantly, we have completely overhauled the Find Checkouts and Find By Status features. They are no longer restricted to a single directory; instead, when one of them is selected, FtpVC enters a new mode, denoted by special folder icons, as shown below. Under "Find mode," all directories are filtered to display only the type of files that you are looking for, and to exit the mode simply refresh.

Other new features include the ability to copy main view items and History items to the clipboard, a project option for comments to be required, improved support for SMTP and Unix symbolic links, and a much faster file compression algorithm.

I hope you all enjoy FtpVC 2.5!

ExamDiff 1.8 Release!

We are pleased to announce the release of version 1.8 of freeware ExamDiff! This release introduces several important new features to make ExamDiff easier to use.

First, the Compare dialog now features an Autopick feature like the one in ExamDiff Pro: if you type in the name of a file that you've compared before as the first file to compare, the second file in the dialog automatically changes to the last file you compared the first file to.

We also added separate Copy and Copy with Padding Lines options, a View/Edit command that is accessible via the context menu, and an improved difference navigation marker that now displays the entire difference, like in ExamDiff Pro, rather than just showing the first line in the difference. Finally, ExamDiff is now fully compatible with Windows Vista.
