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.

Plastic SCM Release is out!!!

Monday, December 10, 2012 Amalia 1 Comments

We have removed this release from the downloads web page because we have detected a performance problem in the merge operation that could be noticeable when there are lots of items involved.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

We start new week, and we launch new release: this time we're announcing 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.


Update Merge Operation

The update merge was not handling the scenarios with changed xlinks or under the xlinked repositories.

Now, the update-merge operation can also work with writable xlinks when there are not conflicts in any of the involved repositories.


Checkin Comments

This small bug was share in our forum. Thank you very much to our active forum members, who are always starting interesting threads.

The checkin recent comments were not being read correctly (from the disk file) when the comments contained the '_', '#' or '@' characters.

Diff View on Linux

Some lines that contain some special characters that can be handled as prefixes (such as: &) were not being drawn properly on Linux by the Differences Tool and the Merge Tool. Plastic SCM team discovered it was mono's issue. Fixed!

The Folder Icons on Repository Browser View

The folder icon was wrongly draw as an special icon, under some especial conditions, : unit icon, special folder icon, custom icon... Now the folder icon is always the default folder icon.

Shelve and Locks

When a shelve was applied the locks were not taken into account.Fixed!

Shelve and File Attributes

Thanks for reporting this bug and share it in Plastic SCM forum.

When a file is left as checked out by the shelve operation the readonly permission is properly removed.
