Re: is subversion useful for mainly binary projects?

Kay,

I did read the book. It offers nothing for situations like ours. We can't
allow two programmers to change the same Filemaker file at the same time.
There is no way to track their changes. They may have moved a text label 2
pixels to the left, scaled a graphic, or deleted 20 layouts, each with many
fields, and dozens of graphics, and so on.

Until SVN offers check-out/check-in facilities it is quite useless for this
kind of work.

Pity.

Anyone know if check-in/check-out will definately be in version 1.1?

Any word on when a 1.1 beta with that in it may be released?

Thanks,

Terry
