    New Forum!

    Hello everyone! I've started this new forum for news and discussions specific to BC version 3.

    We've been working on our BC3 prototype, code-named "Cirrus", for some time now. We're getting close to showing it off to a small group of users for feedback, then working up to a larger private beta group. By the end of this year we hope to have a stable, productive, public beta out.

    Watch here for more news concerning our beta signup!

    Yes! (in Marv Albert voice) I'm excited for BC3, like a Christmas present.

    BTW, if you need testing people, I'll help too if needed. I currently use BC in multiple nightly command line synchs (both local networked machines and to remote ftp sites), for integration use with TortoiseCVS, and general context menu ad-hoc compares. I could help with 3-way merge as well since I've needed to do some cvs branch merges for some time.

    I'd also like to be included in the v3 beta testing, especially the 3-way merge functionality.
    Beyond Compare is the tool!

    As I mentioned in my other post today, we're working on a BC3 for Linux version. Beyond Compare is written in Delphi, and from the beginning of our BC3 work we've tried to keep both VCL (Win32) and CLX (Qt) compatibility going.
    I'm really glad to hear you will have a Linux version of BC3. I've used Beyond Compare at work for years, and it truly is beyond compare. The only reason I've never bought a copy for myself is the fact that it is Windows only. My home computer is a Thinkpad running FreeBSD, and Beyond Compare is one of only a very few apps I miss from the Windows world.

    While I'd prefer a native FreeBSD binary, all I really ask is that you ensure your Linux binary is fully functional under FreeBSD's Linux emulation. You do that, and I'll cheerfully buy BC3 Pro Win32+Linux. My credit card is standing by...

    (Oh, and I found out about BC3 at donationcoder.com while googling for SFTP support in Beyond Compare. If you could toss that into BC3, that'd be swell, too.)

    Thanks!

    We're anxious to show off Cirrus also!

    We'll start by inviting some of our frequent contributors for a "technology preview". Then I'll be posting a signup link here (in a week or two), so we can put together a private beta group.
    I would like to register my interest in participating in BC3 beta testing on the Windows platform.

    This a repost of a previous post because I was not logged in when I posted and my name was not attached to the post.

    Even thought I do not post very much I use BC almost every daty. I beta tested BC 2 and would be interested in beta testing BC 3.

    Here's a Cirrus screenshot that shows a bit of the new file viewer with full-screen editing and syntax highlighting enabled. Notice that the matching lines hidden by the display filter can be expanded, to study more code in the vacinity of a mismatch.

    Have you thought about porting BC3 to (Intel) Macintosh or Linux? Ive tried all their file and directory diff/merge tools and nothing even comes close to BC2. Much less BC3.

    Publicly we're keeping it a bit under wraps for now, but I'll be posting more info here in the coming weeks, and perhaps I'll upload a screenshot or two.
