No matter whether you work alone, or in a small team, ChangeVue can adapt to your needs.

Using version control is an indispensable safety net for any professional developer, regardless of programming language or file size. Not only does version control provide an inherent backup mechanism by storing versions of any file you add to a repository, it also provides an effective means of coordinating who works on what in a team.

Version control is not limited to developers. System and network administrators should use version control to manage their library of production scripts. From the single administrator who needs a backup and versioning solution to a team that wants change control so that there's no confusion about who has the latest version, ChangeVue is an easy to use solution.

Any professional software developer can tell stories of how a version control solution has changed their lives. But all of these solutions have one thing in common: they're typically too complicated for an individual developer or administrator, or even for a small workgroup, that just wants basic version control capabilities without having to deploy a SQL Server instance or other complex components.

That's where SAPIEN's ChangeVue comes in: it's a simplified version control system with very few pre-requisites. It integrates directly with PrimalScript, Visual Studio, as well as any other SourceSafe compatible editor, or can be used entirely on its own. It follows the basic model of check-in / check-out, and automatically retains old versions of checked-in files and allows you to review and retrieve older versions at any time.

ChangeVue: Version control for the rest of us.

Key Features

Simplified Version Control

ChangeVue was designed to be fast and easy to use. No complicated setup procedures. Whether you use standard security or the enhanced security, our 3-step setup wizard walks you through the process. There are no arcane commands to learn. Add files and folder with a single command.

Multiple IDE Support

Keep your existing development tools. Add simplified version control. ChangeVue supports Microsoft's Source Code Control API (MSCCAPI). This support allows ChangeVue to plug into many major IDEs such as Visual Studio, PrimalScript and a number of other popular editors.

Synchonization View

ChangeVue's exclusive Project Compare (folder/repository synchronization view) visually informs you about the status of files in your repository as compared to the files on your local drive. Missing files, missing checked out files, mismatched files, etc. are tagged to make updating your local environment easy and quick.

Multiple Repositories

Keep your source documents organized. With ChangeVue you can connect to multiple source control repositories at a time. So if you have different groups that have no need to see another's documents, you can create multiple repositories and keep each group separate. If any group needs to cross over and have access to another repository, it is simple to give them access and they can have simultaneous access to any repository.

Multi-document Interface

A tabbed multi-document user interface allows you to view and edit multiple file histories, difference views, search results, text and binary editors and more, all at the same time.

Drag and Drop

Not only are our commands easy to use and remember, but ChangeVue's simple drag and drop operations make moving or copying files, folder or projects easy and fast. You can even create a new project folder or add files to an existing project using drag and drop.

Built-in Editor

Sometimes you just need to make a quick change in a document without the hassle of starting your development environment. ChangeVue includes an integrated syntax coloring editor that makes minor changes in your source easy and effortless.

Built-in Differencing Tools

Its easy to determine if a local copy of a file is different from the one in the repository. ChangeVue includes flexible difference tools which makes it easy for you to view local vs repository file differences with syntax coloring.
