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.

Visual improvements - OS X GUI

Saturday, September 10, 2016 Pablo Santos 0 Comments

We have just released BL775 and it includes a number of visual improvements native Plastic SCM GUI for OS X. They are small touches that help creating a more polished tool, something that is a priority for us since OS X is definitely one of our more important platforms.

The following screenshots shows the new syntax highlight in diff plus the line numbers. It also shows the improved selection in lists, with the white text on blue background.

Improved selection

We finally managed to set the right colors on the selection on lists as you can see on the following “before/after” screenshot.

White on blue is much readable and it sticks to the OS X standard (we don’t do this manually, we just enable the defaults on the system, something we failed to do before).

Syntax highlight and line numbers

The embedded diff just learned to display line numbers and syntax highlight, as you can see below:

We also changed the font and size so the overall diff is much more readable.

What’s next

We’re working on adding the full semantic capabilities to the OS X user interface.

And, as you can see, we are already testing on OS X Sierra.
