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.

Two new Plastic SCM versions are out today

We're happy to be releasing two new Plastic SCM versions today:

  • A new 4.1 super-stable version is out: including an improvement when dealing with LDAP passwords and a few bugfixes in code reviews, the TeamCity plugin, shelve from GUI and update.
  • The super-new first public 5.0 release under the labs section where you can enjoy the new features of the upcoming Plastic SCM version.

As an extra bonus, we published an article in this month's DVCS special at DDJ titled "The paradigm shift" that you can access here.

Plastic SCM 5.0 initial release is available in labs

Long story short: 4.2 has been under constant evolution for more than one year now and released to multiple teams all over the world. We have decided to rename 4.2 and call it 5.0 once it received the latest pack of big changes including a refreshed look and feel.

Anyone looking for the latest Plastic found 4.2 as a great option since it has been stable for months but always including new stuff (new security system, improvements in Xlinks, improvements in diffs (able to filter out changes coming from merges) and many, many more.

We're still working on a proper launch on the website, but meanwhile feel free to start moving to the new 5.0 release and enjoy the refreshed GUI appearance.


There are more features to come to 5.0 such as the renewed method history based on semanticmerge technology that we expect to be releasing quite soon.

A very short list of what is new: new security with path based permission support, a Java based CLI (useful for HP-UX and similar environments), new replication triggers, improvements in JIRA, clean diffs functionality able to filter out merges, IntelliJ support for more versions, improvements in branch explorer, GitSync, TFSSync, editable diff, multi-xlink support and xlink expansion rules to mention a few. We will be detailing each one to get ready for the official launch day.
