Dynamsoft Corp. has announced the SourceAnywhere 4.0 source code control and version control software. This version adds key features that include a "find in files" capability to filter files based on file types, size and check-in time and can also be used to search content in the file.
NOTE: Obviously sometimes referred to as one and the same thing, both core source code and version code may indeed be managed separately in some instances, especially where rapid iterative development is seen in Agile and/or web-based environments.
The tool is designed to help developers navigate the source tree with accurate search results to a specific line of code containing keywords being searched. "Regular Expression" and "Windows Index Search" features speed up search processes.
"With the capability to support 500 or more concurrent connections globally, SourceAnywhere lets developers better manage source code versioning and enables seamless local or distributed software, application, and web development team collaboration," said Amy Gu, VPof Dynamsoft. "This makes it also ideal for CIOs to ensure efficient project management throughout the lifecycle of development and support."
SourceAnywhere also comes with SourceAnywhere Cache Server, which is typically installed on the client side to work caching copies of requested server files and reduce the workload of the server, in turn (in theory) improving client responsiveness. When there are multiple developers working on the same project at the same remote location, Cache Server may be able to appreciably reduce the inter-communication frequency between client and server over the Internet.
