It is my distinct pleasure to announce SubFox is officially a new project on VFPX and David Holden and Dale Zimmer are the project managers. 

Regarding Subversion:

  • Simplify and automate the enumeration of which files are “versioned” within a project.  Although this sounds simple, most Subversion users learn that accidentally including “extra” files in a project leads to major headaches.  It is unwise to merely take “everything” in a folder.

Regarding Tortoise:

  • Automate the encoding and decoding of source files triggered by events (aka hooks).

Regarding Visual FoxPro:

  • Interact with Subversion directly from inside the Integrated Development Environment (IDE).
  • Fulfill all day-to-day interactions with Subversion via Toolbar and/or the VFP Main Menu.
  • Develop with VFP native language to allow developers to “add hooks” for their custom environment whenever needed.

The code and release information will be sorted out soon by David and Dale. If you want to be involved in working on this project in any capacity please contact Dale: dzimmer AT ipsdev DOT com

Thanks David and Dale.
