StarTeam was the last project I worked on at StarBase, and we use it
here at Expersoft. It will give you version control for any files
you can create or store on Windows 95 or NT -- binary or ascii.

In addition to version control, it'll give you password-protected
access, defect tracking and threaded conversations that you can
attach to projects or specific files, charting and reports, and an
audit trail.

I've already cashed in my stock options, so I don't have a vested
interest in the product anymore (other than as a user), and the
interface and docs have changed somewhat since I worked on the
product, so I can't claim those anymore either. But it's a handy
piece of software to have on hand and I heartily recommend it.
The 2.0 release provides remote access modules, so you can check
docs in and out over the Web. 3.0 is due out soon.
