Third Party SourceSafe Products

< rss xml
I have tried to collect here a complete list of every third party SourceSafe product, tool, utility, add-in and resource on the planet.

New tools from the international community are VssMon an alert utility by Ivan-Assen Ivanov (Sofia, Bulgaria), SourceSafe2Subversion by Kirit and Tai Saelensminde (FSL Technologies, London, England), and SQL to SourceSafe Scripter by Serkan Subasi (SBS Software , Istanbul Turkiye).

If you want to suggest a product that i've missed then please email me. I am particularly interested in products from publishers outside the US, in languages other than English.

'US$ GBP Euros' indicate a commercial license. Don't let this annotation put you off. Almost every product offers a free trial, and some offer free one user licenses.
'Free' - may imply GNU or other licence restrictions.
'S-W' - indicates ShareWare.
'MLS' - indicates multiple language support.
'SAR' - some assembly required.

If you found this page useful you might want to check out the companion page listing every third party Visual Studio Team System and Team Foundation System product, tool, utility, add-in and resource on the planet.
