Who codes there?

Black Duck Software has released Version 4.3 of ProtexIP. This program reviews large repositories of software code and binaries to identify the specific versions of open-source packages within the collection.

This function is useful for understanding what open-source programs and code fragments were used in a particular project, said Douglas Levin, president and chief executive officer of the company.

An agency can see if contractors have delivered what was promised or ensure they aren't misusing intellectual property.

Version 4.3 features a new code label feature that summarizes the contents of a package.
