Who we are

We are the developers of Plastic SCM, a full version control stack (not a Git variant). We work on the strongest branching and merging you can find, and a core that doesn't cringe with huge binaries and repos. We also develop the GUIs, mergetools and everything needed to give you the full version control stack.

If you want to give it a try, download it from here.

We also code SemanticMerge, and the gmaster Git client.

New style for Plastic SCM 3.0

Wednesday, May 05, 2010 Pablo Santos 2 Comments

The launch date for Plastic SCM 3.0 is getting closer and together with a full pack of new features and improvements (not yet public) we're going to apply some changes to the main GUI design.

David just sent me a few screenshots with several alternatives.

The first one makes a subtle change on the "workspace information area" to include details about the current task (pulled from the issue tracking system you're using, you know: Bugzilla, Mantis, Jira, OnTime, Rally and so on...).

The second one keeps the previous concept but resolves one request we've often heard from users: reduce the space above the 'view area'.

It also highlights the idea of 'tabs'.

I personally prefer the second one but I'd like to see the 'top area' even more reduced so the 'views' can get more screen space.

I've been leading Plastic SCM since 2005. My passion is helping teams work better through version control.
I had the opportunity to see teams from many different industries at work while I helped them improving their version control practices.
I really enjoy teaching (I've been a University professor for 6+ years) and sharing my experience in talks and articles.
And I love simple code. You can reach me at @psluaces.


  1. Looks good! Yes, less waste of vertical screen space is useful for widescreens!

    Can you give some more details/hints about other improvements? Maybe some kind of roadmap? (to keep customers informed about "what's cooking in the labs"?)

  2. We're working on a bunch of new things. Take a look at the annotate view at our Facebook site: http://www.facebook.com/PlasticSCM

    New features? Yes: things like integrated code review, a new commit view, huge performance increase, new sqlite backend, selector explorer, Perforce importer, new SVN importer, external data storage and a couple of new things that I can't unveil yet... :-)
