In a previous post, we saw how to connect Plastic with Discord.

Let's see now how to connect Plastic with Slack and receive Plastic events on our Slack channel thanks to webtriggers.

We just released Unity ID support through OAuth. Now, you can strengthen the security of your Plastic Cloud organization by asking users to login using Unity Id with two-factor authentication.

Do you want to receive Discord notifications from Plastic SCM like the one below?

Follow me; it's easy!

It's official! Códice Software, the company behind Plastic SCM, has been acquired by Unity Technologies!

This is very good news for all our users. We'll now have more power to expand and grow to make Plastic the best version control system available, which is what we always wanted to achieve.

Docker is a fantastic virtualization tool that became a game changer when it was released a few years back.

Initially Linux-only, it's now a powerful system that enables users to save time setting up test environments regardless of the OS they use. That's a remarkable feature, especially when you're working with an extensible, multi-platform system such as Plastic SCM.

The Plastic SCM integration with Microsoft Office lets you diff Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, and even PowerPoint presentations.

Since version, when you diff Excel files (.xls or .xlsx) in Plastic and Gluon, we now launch Microsoft's Spreadsheet Compare tool by default.

Visual Studio Code is a nice little editor by Microsoft that is incredibly popular at the moment. StackOverflow 2019 survey ranked it as the most used code editor: more than half the respondents claimed to use it! Besides, it has a really active community and boasts a powerful set of extensibility options.

We use it here at Códice Software, too. Our websites, the Plastic SCM Server WebUI, some client plugins... All those are often modified and extended using Visual Studio Code.

So, one day we asked ourselves, 'Wouldn't it be nice to have Plastic SCM information embedded in this wonderful editor?' That was the event that triggered the birth of the Plastic SCM extension for VS Code.
