March 21, 2005 - (HOSTSEARCH.COM) - Software development tools maker, BitMover, announced today the release of an Open Source BitKeeper Client. The client provides the same functionality as the update command in CVS, i.e., it may be used to track the changes to a project maintained in BitKeeper.

This client enables anyone to participate in a BitKeeper managed project. It also demonstrates our commitment to the Linux Kernel development and the Open Source community."
The client works with any of the hundreds of projects maintained on http://www.bkbits.net.
