Visual Studio Plug In

Friday, February 02, 2007 0 Comments

Visual Studio 2003 users will be familiar with the following limitation: due to backwards compatibility with Visual SourceSafe, it is not possible to rename or move files inside the IDE.

Nevertheless, on version 2005, the IDE does support this functionality. VS2005 notifies the source control system about the moved and renamed items.

We made some fixes on the plugin to better support this functionality, and they are available since release BL047.5. Indeed if you have a look into Visual Studio integration, you will see how many other SCMs don't support moving and renaming yet. Just check Perforce, SurroundSCM, AccuRev, Hansky ...

The coming releases will improve VS integration, so we expect to make IDE users experience with Plastic even easier.

The improved VSS Plugin has some more benefits: now MSAccess version control integration is fully supported. You would only have to instal an Add-in provided by Microsoft, and install Plastic´s Visual Studio Plug In to start controlling Access development under Plastic.

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.
