Comment: Seapine Surround SCM (Score 1) 326

by lammi (#15478622) Attached to: Document Management and Version Control?
Disclaimer: I happen to work for Seapine but we actually have something that could fit the original poster's request. Also, all these words/opinions are mine, they haven't been sent from marketing or sales or anything like that.

Surround SCM has all the goodies that one would normally associate with a source control tool. (Atomic check-in's, branching, diffing, merging, blah blah blah.) It also has some added features for document revisioning, particularly MS Word docs, that could be very helpful. It is actually integrated into Word so that check out's and check in's can be done without ever leaving the word processor. It also supports diffing of Word documents which I know we use a lot for all the reams of documentation we create.

There is both a full GUI client and a command line client and it comes on Windows/Mac OS X/Linux/Solaris. (For the curious it is written with Qt.) It might be worth checking out.

Backed up the system lately?
