Developers working with streams or classic branches can now create and use task streams for bug fixes and new features. Task streams can also be archived upon completion of the task to declutter the stream graph.
"As development teams become more distributed and their release cadences more rapid, they need greater support from their software management systems," said Christopher Seiwald, CEO of Perforce. "[We] focus on two critical areas for software developers — codeline task management for greater workflow flexibility and advanced replication to support distributed teams."
Along with task streams, shelving functionality provides a flexible way to work on, review, and promote shelved changes with quick approval. Shelves can be submitted directly or unshelved to another branch.
This new release also includes various administration improvements, which allow users to fine-tune their site maintenance and configurations using command and proxy diagnostics, as well as properties for site-wide configuration, including support for IPv6.
