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.

A new week, a new release: this time we're announcing (Build 372 as we name it internally). It is a new release of the 4.1 version, including a big number of bug fixes and new features!!

While you can read the detailed release notes, this blogpost will highlight the most relevant features and bugfixes.

Remember you can find the latest installer here


Visual Studio Package: Create a Visual Studio toolbar

Now the Visual Studio plugin includes Toolbar showing the most common views available in Plastic SCM GUI: Pending changes under solution, Branches, Branch Explorer, Labels, Changesets, Repositories,Synchronization, Workspace explorer, and Pending changes in the workspace., Repositories,Synchronization, Workspace explorer, Pending changes in the workspace.

By clicking on these buttons the corresponding Plastic SCM view will appear, the same behavior as clicking on View -> Plastic SCM menu.

Visual Studio Toolbar

In addition to that, shortcuts have been added to open these views:

  • Pending changes view -> Alt+Shift+P
  • Branches view -> Alt+Shift+B
  • Branch Explorer view -> Alt+Shift+E
  • Labels view -> Alt+Shift+L
  • Changesets view -> Alt+Shift+C
  • Repositories view -> Alt+Shift+R
  • Synchronization view -> Alt+Shift+S
  • Workspace Explorer view -> Alt+Shift+I (Items)
  • Pending changes on workspace view -> Alt+Shift+W (Workspace)


  • From VS2005 to VS2008, toolbar can float, but in VS2010 and VS2012 toolbar appear docked in the main toolbar section.
  • The first time that the plugin is loaded (open a project in Visual Studio) after Plastic SCM installation the toolbar will appear automatically, so that users will notice it. Then you can dock it somewhere or hide it.
  • You can customize the toolbar to show only the buttons that you prefer, as usual with other toolbars.

Thanks all for suggest this new feature in Plastic SCM user voice. Enjoy it!

Show changeset example, “Show Diff View of changeset number 7”
