Dynamsoft Upgrades Its Source Control Software With Improved File Transfers and User Interface

SourceAnywhere™ 4.4 Improves Speed and Performance of Local File Transfers and Features a Revised User Interface Experience

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - Jul 8, 2013) - Dynamsoft Corp. today announced updates to its SourceAnywhere™ 4.4 version control software ideal for software development teams to more efficiently manage source code. Version 4.4 features improved file transfer performance for local development teams and an updated user interface (UI). As an SQL server-based version control tool, SourceAnywhere provides a cost-effective alternative to similar tools, such as SourceSafe. It is also ideal for any environment where file-level document management is essential. Dynamsoft is a developer of source control / version control software, scanner programming libraries and JavaScript webcam plug-ins.

In addition to its new features, SourceAnywhere 4.4 also has a "find in files" capability. This "find in files" capability filters file searches based on file types, size and check-in times. It can also be used to search content in a file. It helps developers navigate the source tree with accurate search results. This includes results for specific lines of code containing keywords being searched. SourceAnywhere 4.4 can also handle more than 500 concurrent global connections to provide seemingly limitless scalability.

"We've improved SourceAnywhere yet again with better file transfer capabilities and a better UI experience," said Amy Gu, Vice President of Dynamsoft. "Local team members can now get and check out files via a LAN faster than SourceSafe or similar tools. In addition, remote team members also have a better experience. This is because of SourceAnywhere's unique caching, delta transfer and compression mechanisms. We're providing a really good alternative version control solution that also has the advantage of cost savings. There's also a smooth migration and no learning curve if you're switching from SourceSafe."

The SourceAnywhere Cache Server is typically installed on the client side. SourceAnywhere Cache Server significantly improves remote speed performance. Because of file caching, server workload is reduced and client responsiveness is improved. Cache Server can appreciably reduce the inter-communication frequency between client and server over the Internet. This is best when multiple developers are working on the same project at the same remote location.

SourceAnywhere also boasts cross-platform support, scalability and reliability to support large software, application and web development teams. In addition to a GUI-based client, SourceAnywhere can also be used within integrated development environments (IDE). These include Visual Studio®, Eclipse™, Dreamweaver® and other IDEs compatible with Microsoft® Source Code Control Interface (MSSCCI).

SourceAnywhere's security capabilities include built-in SSL and Blowfish encryption to protect in-transit source code. It also features password policies, database encryption and cache file encryption. SourceAnywhere works with CruiseControl.NET and ANT to provide continuous integration and automatic build support. Version control convenience features include email notifications; pending check-ins; shelve / unshelve; and branch / merge.

In addition to providing an enterprise software edition, it is also offered as a fully-supported software-as-a-service (SaaS) hosted edition (SourceAnywhere Hosted).
