Developers working on the same project from different locations often face difficulty in merging their codes. Even if they are able to merge their codes, problems crop up while merging those codes.
Helping developers working from diverse locations to merge their projects, Dynamsoft has updated its SourceAnywhere version control software. According to the company, the upgrade comes with project branch and merge features. This facilitates improved parallel code development and management amongst teams.
Named SourceAnywhere version 6.0, this upgraded version enables users to name differing versions of code as latest version, a specified historical version, or a labeled version. With this, users can merge code changes from a source branch to target branch. The version also allows users to resolve any conflicts manually, thereby making it more flexible and useful than ever before.
Developers can use this version within various integrated development environments (IDE). This new version does not lag behind in one of the most important features for any developers, security for their code. The security features include built-in SSL and Blowfish encryption, password protection, and automatic encryption of source code and cache files during storage or transmission.
“Seamless collaboration is important at all stages of the code development process," said Amy Gu, Vice President of Dynamsoft. "So, naturally, anytime we uncover a way to add to SourceAnywhere's collaborative strengths, we pursue it. The branch and merge features made available today offer convenient ways to help developer teams better work together.”
Dynamsoft has been upgrading its other software services too. Recently, the company upgraded its Dynamic .NET TWAIN software development kit (SDK) to version 5.0. The upgraded version offered built-in support for Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF). This new version enabled developers to quickly build WPF-based applications for image capturing from TWAIN scanners.
