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.

Update progress

Wednesday, September 17, 2014 Pablo Santos 0 Comments

The update operation is the responsible of downloading files and directories from the repository into your workspace. It can be a time consuming action if there’s a high number of files to be downloaded (or updated) or if the overall size is big. The equivalent to “update” in Plastic is “checkout” in SVN and Git jargon.

We added a new “update progress” so that when there’s a lot to be downloaded you get more precise feedback:

The progress is updated in 4Mb blocks which is the transfer unit we use. It can be a chunk of a big file or a group of small files summing up to 4Mb.


This feature is only available in version 5.4 ( - Jun 26th 2014 and higher). 5.0 won’t get this one merged since the code is built on top of some other changes and improvements developed for 5.4 only.

I'm the CTO and Founder at Códice.
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.
