SmartVersion is a tool for storing multiple versions of your files inside
SmartVersion Files (SVF files). You may then send these SVF files to your
end-users. Your end-users can use SmartVersion to extract the version
they desire from the SVF files and update their product. You may also
customize exactly which versions are delivered to your end-users.
SmartVersion uses intelligent compression and file comparison algorithms. Only the changes between the different product versions are stored in the SVF files. This eliminates redundant data in your SVF files and makes sure the patches you create for new versions of your products are as small as possible.
SmartVersion, unlike other patching schemes, is not limited to working with software products, or providing single version upgrades.
