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.

Distributed synchronization view... unveiled!

Here are the two screencasts I've just recorded showing one of the last features we've been working on during the last days: the distributed synch view.

You all know that Plastic SCM is a DVCS (Distributed Version Control System) and that we're trying to release the most complete possible DVCS toolset with 4.0. Well, the "synch view" is another step ahead: yes, you can ask the new Distributed Branch Explorer (DBrEx) to render remote branches and then pull from there, but we thought it would be really useful to have a "tree view" displaying the changesets (and branches) you need to push or pull between two different remote repositories... and that's how we started with the sync view.

It simplifies things so you see the branches you need to pull or push, the changesets on each of these branches, and you can even "diff" the csets to see what has been modified.

'Cause a picture is worth 1000 words... probably a video is worth 2000 :P, so here it goes, the long detailed explanation:

And a shorter one:

Remember you can already sign up for the beta version and also follow us on Twitter and Facebook.

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.
