History

OVCC is a fork of VCC, the main objectives are :

  1. To provide a native version of VCC for Linux and Mac OS X
  2. To take advantage of UNIX shared memory support (obviously not in the Windows version)

The shared memory support provides a 40% improvement in efficiency and performance when compared to not using it. From a user perspective the experience was meant to similar and hence the similarity in user interface. Internally some major changes had to be made to accommodate a new GUI interface. This impacted both the core and loadable device libraries. However anyone familiar with the code of VCC could look at OVCC and see all the similarities.

Binaries for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and 20.04 LTS, as well as Windows are available.
