Saros - Distributed Party Programming for Eclipse
The Saros Team is proud to announce the release of version 11.9.30. This
release brings you a couple of cool new features.
First up is "needs-based synchronisation" and very useful feature for those
of you collaborating on very large projects. With Saros you can already
choose to share a subset of files with your peers, so that you don't have
to spend time sharing huge amounts of data, but this meant that if you
wanted collaborate on unshared files, they needed adding manually to the
session. Now, with needs-based synchronisation turned on, Saros will monitor
the files you work on; when you begin editing an unshared file, Saros will
instantly and automatically share the file with everyone in the session.
And secondly, we've greatly expanded the functionality offered by the shared
whiteboard. With Saros you can draw lines, arrows, write text and add a
nnotations to your shared sketches. You can even draw in different colours to
make clear who drew what!
Additionally, you will find some important fixes. Check out the changelog below.
