New Release: Plastic SCM 2.5 is out!

Friday, July 18, 2008 0 Comments

We are happy to anounce that we have just released Plastic SCM 2.5 which provides with a whole new world of possibilities for your configuration management needs!



The new release includes:



  • The demanded trigger system, which allows the execution of user commands for tasks such as enforcing branch creation policies or creating formatting rules.
    “After” and “before” event triggers automatically initiate actions when the events occur. The system provides with both workspace triggers executed by the workspace server (create workspace, set selector, add items, check in and check out) and repository triggers which are executed by the repository server (create branch, attribute, marker and repository) on the server side, and update trigger on the client side.



  • Smart branches system: The new branch system included on Plastic SCM allows users to implement any working pattern, as they "remember" their starting point whenever a user switches to a branch he does not have to set its base...and even further...a branch properties can be changed but its history will be stored. You can visit our "smart branches slide" by clicking here.




  • Attributes system: It allows users to include additional information to any system object. This is a very powerful and highly customizable system, as developers can choose to add any attribute and any values to those attributes...and then perform queries using the attributes (as find integrated branches, being the value integrated and the attribute status; or find labels submitted to customers A and B, etc).




  • Plastic SCM extensions with task tracking tools (Jira, Mantis, DevTrack, OnTime, VersionOne and Bugzilla) have been improved: As you can see on the image below, we have included an extension button on the GUI where the task information is displayed. And furthermore!, the extensions now support two different working methods: Task on branch and Task on changeset!




  • Improved performance on several operations, such as add, check in and check out, when executed in blocks, which have now double their speed, resulting on an even faster system.



  • System enhancements on Eclipse integration, CVS importer and Plastic SCM installer.



  • A number of bug fixes.



A great release as a result of a big effort on our development team!
