ANNC: Reliable Software LLC Advances P2P Version Control technology by including a P2P Wiki and Bug Database with the upcoming release of Code Co-op 5.0

P: n/a
SEATTLE, Washington. - July 12, 2006: Reliable Software® announces
the upcoming release of Code Co-op® version 5.0. Code Co-op is an
affordable peer-to-peer version control system for distributed
development enabling collaboration through Email, LAN, or VPN-no
server required.

The upcoming release of Code Co-op 5.0 is due out this fall. With this
release Reliable Software continues its track record of innovation by
introducing peer-to-peer Wiki support and an extensible Wiki-based
database. This release will also round out Code Co-op's base feature
set by including branch and merge support. For email collaborators,
Code Co-op 5.0 will support SMTP/POP3 as an alternative to interfacing
with MAPI email clients. Extensive improvements have been made to the
GUI to simplify the review of incoming changes and historical change
records.

The Wiki functionality allows team members to create local Wiki sites
in their projects. These sites may contain notes, to-do lists, design
plans, or any other documentation, ranging in form from pure text to
richly formatted documents. Creating, editing, hyperlinking, and
embedding pictures in Wiki pages is easy and intuitive. The pages are
automatically versioned and shared between team members using Code
Co-op, without the need for a web server. These sites are navigable
using a built-in, full-featured Internet Browser Control.

Version 5.0 includes a flexible bug tracking system built on top of
Code Co-op. Each bug report is a Wiki file which contains a combination
of database fields and free-form Wiki-formatted text, with links,
screenshots, preformatted code and more. Using a simplified version of
SQL that is built into Code Co-op Wiki, bug reports can be displayed
and organized based on their properties. This mechanism is general
enough to let the user create and manage arbitrary text-based
databases.

Previous versions of Code Co-op had limited support for branches. This
release introduces intuitive branch merging using pluggable external
tools.

The addition of SMTP/POP3 support introduces the ability to collaborate
using almost any email system that supports these protocols. It also
means that the distribution of change scripts is completely hidden in
the background. Many popular free email hosts like Gmail, Yahoo and
Hotmail support SMTP/POP3.

The GUI improvements include the addition of split-pane history
display, which makes it very easy to view, save, compare, and merge
historical versions of files. Selecting a project version in the
history pane brings up the list of changed files in the file pane.
Specific changes can then be viewed by double-clicking on each file.
The same convenient UI is used for reviewing incoming scripts before
synchronization.

Changing the subject, isn't this stuff just as bad as job postings?

The product announced in the parent is one that I'll make it a point not
to use or recommend.
