Codesion Steps Out From CVS's Shadow

There's a healthy array of choices in the world of code management services for the open source world. CVS the first big name one but others have surpassed it. In the case of Codesion, it's emerging from CVS's shadow. Developer.com finds out more.


There was a time when CVS (Concurrent Versioning System) dominated the open source, software-version-control landscape, but no more.

More modern systems like SVN (subversion), Mercurial, Bzr (Bazaar) and Git offer developers newer opportunities to collaboratively develop software at scale. One of the companies caught in the middle of the evolution of version control is hosting vendor CVSdude, with more than 50,000 users.

CVSdude is now evolving along with the market for version control, and this week is rolling out a new professional edition of its on-demand Software as a Service (SaaS) offering. The company is also changing its name to Codesion as part of the overall movement away from CVS, though CVS still continues to have a role in the global development marketplace.

"We've been CVSdude for the last 7 years," Codesion CEO Jason Seed told InternetNews.com. "The name change to Codesion signifies a name change both in the market and in the products that we provide. We've been focused on changing this company from being a hosted provider of CVS to really being a true enterprise-grade platform."
