I am considering using Kiln as version control software in places of Microsoft VSS. I have a couple of questions which I haven't managed to find answers for.

1) Is it compatible with Delphi files, I haven't found any discussions of which languages it works with.

2) How hard is it to migrate from VSS to Kiln without loosing file histories?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Do Copy/Paste (yuck) or else the answer to 'without loosing histories' is not currently possible.

Update: Please try our "Import your existing Subversion/Git/Mercurial repository (or even a plain old directory of files on your local machine) into Kiln" tool by clicking the "Download and run the Kiln Import tool" link on any Empty Repository page.

We do not currently have plans to support more esoteric version control systems such as Visual SourceSafe or Vault. In the case of those systems, you can either create a new Mercurial repository and copy your source over, losing your history, or you can write your own tool to handle the conversion. We are aware that this solution is suboptimal, and hope to have a better solution available in the future.
