Frontend server process
Frontend server functionality has been added. The frontend server is a process that listens on a port capturing all network requests and then sending them to a plasticd process running on the same machine. Connections are negotiated through the frontend.
If a backend dies, the frontend launches a new one. It can also kill the backends if they grow larger than a certain amount of memory. The following example launches a backend in console mode:
plasticfrontend --console --publicport=7070 --frontendport=7071 --remotingfile=remoting.backend.conf
New panel on "Branch Explorer" View
The branch explorer now shows a panel with the branch/label/changeset properties, when you hover on an object with the mouse.
Thank for suggest this new feature in UserVoice. We're glad to help you.
"Branch Explorer" exception
Branch Explorer: A null reference exception was thrown sometimes when deleting changesets. Fixed some concurrency problems.
Script in Debian
Now, the "plasticsd" script in Debian does not show the annoying "too many arguments" warning.
