Introduction

Object of the JEDI VCS project is to create an open source VCS system, based on the existing FreeVCS. This will allow current FreeVCS users to migrate to JEDI VCS, while continuing to use the existing server portion.

Although the original name for this project was freevcsclient, the successor to FreeVCS will now be called JEDI VCS, short for JEDI Version Control System.

07-February-2010 JVCS 2.50 Beta 3 released!
The JVCS team is happy to announce JEDI VCS 2.50 Beta 3, which is the third beta version of the second JVCS release.

This beta version targets experienced JEDI VCS users which are interested in the branching functionality and adds more functionality for a manual branch - change - merge cycle.

Beta 3 also adds the new VCS browser possibilty which allows viewing the repository content in a directory manner in addition to the known project/projectgroup structure.

Another important change is the decision to focus only on a few SQL based database management systems which will allow to focus more on the improvements in the JVCS functionality.
Due to this decision the final 2.5x release will only support Firebird, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server and MySQL database systems.
A migration tool is already existing for those who are using other database systems.

Improvements over 2.50 Beta 2:
- fixed 400 errors in the Firebird server port
- added an upgrade procedure for Firebird to add indexes to speed up project loading
- added RO option for command line client
- speeded up checkin preperation
- branches can be removed now
- new compressed Diff added to more places
- new VCS browser if client is connected to a 2.5x server
