    BC3 "Editions"

    At this point, we're planning on releasing separate "regular" and "pro" editions of BC3. This will allow us to keep the price down on a BC2 replacement, while offering advanced features for a bit more. I'll post our tentative pricing info later on.

    Here's a rundown of the significant features we've planned for 3.0:

    Regular Edition
    • Virtually all BC2 functions
    • Full-screen editor with syntax highlighting, dynamic re-comparison, and undo after save
    • Dedicated folder sync sessions
    • Flattened folder compare
    • Full Unicode user interface and filename support

    Pro Edition
    • 3-way merge
    • Other miscellaneous advanced features

    Please be aware that the above is subject to change!

    Our tentative pricing scheme for a single user license is $30 for BC3 standard, and $50 for BC3 Pro. We will offer discounts for volume purchases starting at 5 or more users.

    We will post a full price list and upgrade information for BC2 users when we release a public beta of BC3.
    When will the new pricing be announced? Some of us just can't wait!

    The BC3 installer should have an option to create a portable install (for USB flash drives, etc).
    That's good news. Thank you.

    Re: Feature request (ssh/sftp)

    We are working on native SFTP support in version 3, and we have a workaround article for BC2:

    I second the sftp change, we are locking down our servers so ftp'ing to them is no longer an option.

    I want to add my vote and enthusiasm for Secure FTP in Beyond Compare. It will really make a perfect solution once its able to connect securely.

    Thanks for all your hard work!

    Sorry for the changing schedule. It looks like we're 1-2 months away from a public beta at this point.

    Re: BC3 \"Editions\"

    Our current estimate is that we're hoping for a public beta sometime in the third quarter of this year, with an official release towards the end of this year.
    So, now that "towards the end of this year" has passed, is there a new ETA?

    I'm really looking forward to this upgrade for Windows and having a native version for Linux!

    Re: Next beta?

    BC can work with filenames that it can understand. So, by changing your Windows settings to match the language of the files, BC2 can then work with them. If you want to run a synchronize, it will need to be able to understand every file in the base folders.

    Thanks, I had a look at the workaround link you posted. Without me having to test it, can you tell me if it just lets the filenames become visible or does it actually let BC work with them i.e. synchronise?
