    I have heard that there will be and that it will be much improved. However I cannot remember where I heard it or what those improvements might be.

    Sorry

    Korby Parnell is the expert, and I think he's blogged about it a couple of times.  http://blogs.msdn.com/korbyp

    well, I saw that sourcesafe in whidbey got something for Internet also.. so I guess that we will be able to do internet source safe also.. I was missing this feature a long time ago.. I am not sure that its exactly what I am looking for.

    unix?

    Does anyone know if there will be branching support in the new Visual Source Safe version ?

    I sure hope so.. the "tagging" ability of CVS would be a nice addition to SourceSafe IMO. I've often encountered the need to create a "test snapshot" of a repository that is accesible through the vesioning software. Caveat: I am not confident that my experience with VSS is sufficient enough to warrant that it doesnt allow me to accomplish what I point out.

    There seems to be a webcast about VSS and whidbey by Alfredo Mendez (Program Manager in Visual Studio, working on the Visual Studio Core Source Control Services and Visual SourceSafe)
    :
    http://msevents.microsoft.com/CUI/EventDetail.aspx?EventID=1032251078&Culture=en-US

    focuses on the new features under development for the existing Visual SourceSafe product that will be released along with Visual Studio® .Net codename "Whidbey.The webcast will consist of a series of live demos of these new features, including: SourceSafe Web Service Configuration, Remote Access via HTTP, Performance Improvements, Globalization, Visual Studio Integration: Rename/Deletes, File Dialogs, Asynchronous open.



    will look at it next week.

    Say J: Have you tried the Label command in VSS? This allows you to name a version of code just like the tagging in CVS (I think - it's been a couple years since I've used CVS Smiley ). 

    Sometime in the future you could pull code by label to recreate a specific version of something you might have shipped. You can also list differences between two labeled versions. Korby posted a script from a newsgroup user to do this. I have some experimental C# code to do the same here (in Longhorn!).

    Awesome.. thanks for pointing it out. I was pretty sure that I just didn't know how to do this, hence my cover my arse clause Wink
