  • This is provided by default I guess.

    When you are checking-in the user can choose to overwrite the existing version, instead of creating a new one. Doing so doesn't create a new version.

     

    Hope this is what you wanted.

  • Microsoft Office 2010 is actually quite smart and will not create a new version of the document regardless of how many times you save until you actually close the document.  You can see this in action when you are editing the document and click on the file menu, you will see that it has been saved multiple times but a new version number has not been created.
