Desktop Client Version 1.0.0.1 Released

A new version of the DART desktop client has been released today.

The new version will no longer archive files that have not been updated. For example, if the file "Readme.doc" is archived and the user attempts to archive it again, the program will inform the user that the file has not changed.

Moreover, when at least one Pro/E versioned file is archived, relevant Pro/E versioned files are archived as well. For instance, archiving wheel.prt.1 will also archive wheel.prt.2.

This client can be accessed from a menu entry named "DART" inside Pro/E. The client can archive files and export Pro/E files to many different file formats, increasing the chance that the files will be readable in the future.
