Changes public beta

Skorpiostech has released a public beta of Changes, its new directory comparison and file differencing utility for Mac OS X. Changes is designed to make managing differences between files and folders fast and efficient by leveraging the power of Leopard's new Core Animation and Quick Look technologies, providing a smooth workflow that handles complicated synchronization and differencing needs. Changes beta is available for free during the testing period, and will sell for $30 upon shipping before migrating to its actual price of $40. The software requires Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard.

"A wonderful replacement for Apple's aging FileMerge utility, Changes features a CLI utility, TextMate integration, and F-Script support, making Changes incredibly extensible, powerful, and easy-to-integrate into any developer's workflow," the company said. "Changes also supports subversion and many other popular SCM systems."

An improved differencing algorithm and a Core Animation-driven interface accompany optional support as well as integration for FTP and SFTP shares via MacFUSE.
