Announcing Plastic SCM 2.9Plastic SCM turns 2.9 and it’s ready to download from our site: www.plasticscm.com.
It comes with a bunch of new features and also gets faster specially under heavy load.
Here are some of the new things we’ve included:
Well, and that’s basically it, together with a huge number of small tweaks here and there. We run load tests weekly on a 100 nodes cluster, and under really heavy load Plastic 2.9 is about 30% faster than its predecessor. Not bad! Remember we were already 10 times faster than SVN with 2.8 and make the math.
And the best thing: Plastic grows but stays easy to use and easy to install. Take a look at the following screencast: I install a Plastic server in less than 45 seconds!! And I make an initial code import after that (the first steps you’d probably do during an evaluation) during the next minute. Easy! Take a look at the latest TFS 2010 and tell me if you can set up the whole slow monster in 45 seconds!! :)
