I program in small increments, test the increment, then give the source code a version number, do a "SaveAs" to archive it, and program another small increment. That way, if one of my enhancements crashes the North American Grid, I can always go back to the last working version and proceed more cautiously.
In RB Personal, the process involves an external editor, and endless "Open Project" steps. I see a workingversion.xml file and a "versions" directory in each project directory. That tells me there is an automatic versioning function somewhere in the IDE, but I can't find it or figure out how to trigger it.

The versioning will be in the pro version, but perhaps I can do something to accomodate your development style.
I admit that I didn't realize this would be an issue, but I can see that it is. Here is an idea. How about each time you save the project it saves it twice. One copy will have date and timestamp info in the name, like:

Then we can add a "browse old versions" button.
This does seem like sort of a hack though. :/
I would not consider this a hack, but a useful feature
So light versioning with the personal edition and full versioning with the Pro edition. I like Assist very much, has saved me hours.
Please include light versioning.
