SOS is a design data management product built for hardware engineers. It allows version control for both binary files (eg. Schematic, Layout, Synthesis etc) and ASCII files (eg. VHDL, Verilog, C etc.) Furthermore, SOS provides design engineers to predictably create and re-create releases during tape-out. In addition to version control and release management, SOS has multiple features that enhance team collaboration and design productivity.
Aegis is a transaction-based software configuration management system. It provides a framework within which a team of developers may work on many changes to a program independently, and Aegis coordinates integrating these changes back into the master source of the program, with as little disruption as possible. Aegis supports geographically distributed development.
jCVS is a Java based CVS Client. CVS is a source code control system based on RCS and extended to handle complete projects as a whole, rather than individual files. The primary benefit of CVS is that it provides a server/client protocol which allows clients such as jCVS to be written. JCVS allows any Java 1.1 capable machine to be a CVS client, providing for a totally distributed source code management system.
cvsweb is a visual (WWW) interface for exploring a CVS repository. Its enhancements include recognition and display of popular MIME-types, visual, color-coded, side-by-side diffs of changes, and the ability sort the file display and to hide old files from view. cvsweb requires the server to have CVS and a CVS repository worth exploring.
CVS is a version control system, which allows you to keep old versions of files (usually source code), keep a log of who, when, and why changes occurred, etc., like RCS or SCCS. Unlike the simpler systems, CVS does not just operate on one file at a time or one directory at a time, but operates on hierarchical collections of directories consisting of version controlled files. CVS helps to manage releases and to control the concurrent editing of source files among multiple authors. CVS allows triggers to enable/log/control various operations and works well over a wide area network.
