Merging nightmare

Thursday, May 04, 2006 0 Comments





Yesterday Borja and me, were working on some improvements on the merge code. Well, he designed all the most horrible merge scenarios you can think of, or at least some of them.

The image shows a nice and complex version tree with lots of different test cases.

Now we are able to handle multiple merges to a same revision, and solving correctly the common ancestor. We were already solving those cases but with some unsolved issues.

We develop Plastic SCM, a version control that excels in branching and merging, can deal with huge projects and big binary assets natively, and it comes with GUIs and tools to make everything simpler.

If you want to give it a try, download it from here.

We are also the developers of SemanticMerge, and the gmaster Git client.
