+VersionX was first developed in December 2010, and I have since then learned a lot about proper addon development, however this addon does not yet meet those standards I set for my own work.
+It may seem contradictionary, but unless you are a developer I would suggest against using this addon at this point. It is *not* stable and while it may not hurt your website or installation, it simply doesn't do what it should and can make you pull out your hair.
+VersionX works better in 2.0.x than it does in 2.1 at this point.
+A full rewrite is planned for whenever I have time - there's a lot that needs to be rewritten from ground up, such as the database structure and the filesystem. This rewrite will not only increase the stability and the functionality, but will also make sure the code doesn't become as outdated as it is now.
+If you still want to try it out, here's some information...
VersionX is a basic versioning Add-on for the MODx CMF. It keeps track of changes
-to resources, and starting in VersionX 1.1, also chunks and snippets.
+to resources.
Versioning is a much requested feature which is what sparked the development of this
addon. Please check out the information linked to on the Wiki for more information
