SourceAnywhere™ 4.0 Enables Source Control / Version Control via its GUI-based Client or Within Leading Integrated Development Environments
Dynamsoft Corp., a developer of source control / version control software and TWAIN™ SDK (software development kit) solutions, today announced SourceAnywhere™ 4.0. The software is the company's newest version of its enterprise-class solution to provide source control (AKA, version control) for web, software and application development teams. Version 4.0 adds key features that include a "find in files" capability. It will be made available this month - the same month Dynamsoft celebrates the five-year anniversary of SourceAnywhere Hosted.
The new "find in files" capability filters files based on file types, size and check-in time and can also be used to search content in the file. It helps developers navigate the source tree with accurate search results to a specific line of code containing keywords being searched. Also, “Regular Expression” and “Windows Index Search” features greatly speed up search processes. In addition to the new fast file and content search engine, SourceAnywhere 4.0 can now handle more than 500 concurrent global connections.
"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, Vice President of Dynamsoft. "This makes it also ideal for CIOs to ensure efficient project management throughout the lifecycle of development and support."
SourceAnywhere also comes with an added software component, SourceAnywhere Cache Server. Typically installed on the client side, SourceAnywhere Cache Server significantly improves remote speed performance. This is done by caching copies of requested server files which reduces the workload of the server, in turn improving client responsiveness. When there are multiple developers working on the same project at the same remote location, Cache Server can appreciably reduce the inter-communication frequency between client and server over the Internet.
