Downloaded the trial and installed it. Upon launching Peak Express, it started the BIAS Authorization Manager, which is needed to activate the trial. I tried the activation, but the Authorization Manager told me that it had failed to write to '/Library/Application Support' – not surprising, as my account is a non-admin account. I chown'ed the directory accordingly and tried again (as I had been told). The result: I was presented a dialog explaining me that the number of activations is exceeded, while at the same time Peak Express was still NOT activated.
Therefore the second result: I trashed it all and will not become a Peak user.

something that's not very uncommon nowadays

For updating large sites, you should use rsync, anyway. And if you don't have SSH access, there's still sitecopy.

While basically Version is nice client for the (mostly not very advanced) things I do with Subversion, I am increasingly disappointed at the speed of development, especially given the (comparatively high) price tag.
Versions works and is stable, but it still hinders my workflow in certain situations. For instance, it still only has an "Open" contextual menu entry, but not "Open with ..." (yes, I mailed the developer about it a long time ago). It still creates a text clipping containing the path when I drag & drop an item onto the Desktop (of course, the path is useful when dropping an item onto a Terminal window, but why whould I want a clipping in the Finder?) and does not export the item (yes, I know I can do it in the CM, but why not offer both?). When I select "Add working copy bookmark", it still does not add the bookmark below the repository bookmark currently selected, but somewhere else. And it still asks whether it should delete the filesystem folder for a bookmark I deleted, even that folder does not exist any longer in the filesystem.

Within the first 5 minutes of testing I found that:
- There don't seem to be shortcuts even for the most common tasks. You can't even press Cmd-F to get to the searchfield or Cmd-N to create a new task or project.
- I didn't find a way to delete projects or tasks.
- You can't reorder project or tasks.
- Some other minor issues

The problem is not that this application doesn't offer many features, but that the features are not well implemented and the app is incomplete. It looks like someone played around with CoreData and never really used this application. Anything I else I tried in the last two years in the field of project management / to-do management / GTD etc. not only offers more features, but also better usability-and I think that's devastating for an application that aims to be “clean an simple”.
[Version 1.0.1]
