Amazing app, especially at $0! Blows the pants off of the MySQL GUI tools for sure. Thanks for this app!!

This app isn't ready for prime time, I don't think. Major functionality such as branching and merging isn't present. Furthermore, some operations are just plain confusing, for instance, the "rollback" feature. I choose rollback to revision 23, for example, and I can see that 3 files have been affected, yet when I commit, nothing happens.

Besides that, I should mention that it's rare for a developer to do a rollback *to* a specific revision. It's not common that we're at r312, and we say "oh hey, we should roll back to r287, and trash all the work we've done from r288 through r312." It just doesn't happen. More common is to look at, for example, r308, and say "yuck, r308 really botched some of the network functions, let's pull it out." On the command line, a simple "svn merge . -c -308" (reverse merge) followed by "svn commit" does the trick, and reverses anything done in r308 so it's almost as if it never existed. Or if r308 and r276 are bad, "svn merge . -c -308,-276" will pull out both. Versions can't do any of this.

Between the lack of branch/merge, and reverse merging, I just can't justify dropping the money on this application yet. This is way overpriced given its current feature set. I hope the developer will continue to work hard on Versions to make it the best it can be.

I didn't care for Hydra, to be frank. I took different shots, some of them with 3-bracket ranges, others with 5-bracket ranges. The results that Hydra spit out were poor, weirdly saturated (kind of a "candied" look to it), or underexposed.

I took the same exact photo sets and ran them through Bracketeer (GUI frontend for Enfuse), and the results were stunning. With some tweaks, they looked even better.

Can't recommend Hydra. Go for Bracketeer, save a few bucks, and get a better performer too.

I have to say, I found this app to be amazing. With default options, you can drop in 3-5 bracketed shots and it looks great! Mess with the settings (especially sigma and hard mask) and you can get some really dramatic and creative effects.

Well worth the $30, this blows away some of the competitors. Hydra is $60, and given the same photos I fed into Bracketeer, it did a pretty bad job on cranking out a good looking result.

Good stuff!
