I'm pleased to announce new release of the Vertoo.

Vertoo is a tool that lightens developer's burden to maintain up-to-date versioning information across project's files. Vertoo provides simple interface to change the version (or it's part) and distribute these changes through the project's files. Configuration describes versions used in a project, each in arbitrary, user-specified scheme and formats for each of the occurences of the version's data in the project files.

Vertoo is designed to be as non-obtrusive as possible. To use it you just have to create a configuration file where your describe your project's modules, relevant files and version format used. That's all. No changes in your source files (like adding special marks or creating .in files) are requried. Files are modified in-place, as you would do it by hand. Now you could run vertoo, either by hand or by adding appropriate command to one of your Makefile's rules or release script. If you later change your mind and stop using Vertoo you'll just delete it's configuration files.

What's new in this release?


Get it from the project's web site:

Supported platforms:

Vertoo is written in Python and thus requries it to run (at least Python 2.1 is required). I successfully use Vertoo on Linux and Windows and it would probably run on other systems as well.
