Middleware developer Mogware is releasing a developer bundle for its FileHamster backup and archiving tool, hoping to offer developers tools to track local iterations of files without manual check-ins.
According to the company, FileHamster enables users to monitor specific hard drive files and create incremental backups whenever modifications are made. Developers can also make notes about changes to files in order to track individual revisions.
The company will offer the developer bundle with the +Plus version of FileHamster alongside its script, FTP and report plugins with the intention of offering savings over separate purchases of the components.
Mogware also notes FileHamster is used in many kinds of digital media production outside of the game industry, and that it is used in over 140 countries worldwide.
“We’ve all done it at one point or another... worked ourselves into a hole where we wish we would have checked in our local changes or just made a quick backup," says Mogware president John Renstrom.
"This bundle includes the ability to easily roll back a developer’s local files allowing them to get out of any hole."
