VCS best practice for development vs production

Hi Das,

Thanks for your feedback!  Having two different versions of Omnis would help in this case - you can't accidentally open the VCS in the wrong version of Omnis I would imagine.

When you say "regularly update the v11 libraries from the 4", do you mean that you build them in Studio v4, then open them in Studio v11 and check those into the VCS?  I'm curious about the mechanics of how that would work.
