CVS for Dreamweaver (free extension)

“Outstanding benefits for version and source code control”

Adds new functionality to Adobe Dreamweaver!
If you're using popular Concurrent Versions System, the dominant open-source network-transparent version control system, now you can use it inside Adobe Dreamweaver! CVS offers outstanding benefits for version and source code control. It's a useful tool for any professional developer - freelance, small to medium business or larger distributed teams.

Overview

CVS offers outstanding benefits for version and source code control. It's a useful tool for any professional developer - freelance, small to medium business or larger distributed teams:

  • Its client-server access method lets developers access the latest code from anywhere there's an Internet connection.
  • Its unreserved check-out model to version control avoids artificial conflicts common with the exclusive check-out model.
  • Its client tools are available on most platforms.

» Features include:

  • Direct access as a Dreamweaver extension, so it can easily Checkout, Commit, Add and Update files to/from CVS 
  • Create new module
  • Tag it a file
  • Branch a file
  • Release a project
  • Diff a file 
  • Command Line for specific commands
  • Authentication via all standard CVS protocols, plus Windows-specific SSPI and Active Directory (using CVSNT product)
  • Secure transport support via server or encrypted SSPI
  • Works with Windows-based CVS and Linux-based CVS
  • Professionally built and tested ( we built it because we use it ourselves. This product is continuously enhanced for constant professional development.)

says "free extension" but it's not...

It should say "free trial"

C'mon. If it aint free, say demo

I don't mind using demos for demo-ing (sp), but don't have me download something only to find out after it's not free.

As for "it's in the license field"; that's lame. you know as well as I that noone reads that before downloading. 

AND the link 404s

Now I wonder about anything labeled "Free" on the entire site.

Why piss-off people who otherwise like--and buy--your stuff. It genuinely weakens your brand
