Codice Software Updates SCM Tool

Codice Software has released Version 2.8 of its Plastic SCM software change and configuration management (SCCM) tool. Plastic supports agile, parallel, and/or distributed software development. It tracks and maps the complete development history for every project component, giving developers click-through access to details. Plastic SCM 2.8 provides new merge and configuration capabilities, secures valuable source code, and includes an interactive 3D graphical version tree. It interoperates across Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux platforms and supports backend databases such as MySQL, SQL Server, Oracle, Postgresql and FireBird.

<"In addition to providing superior branch and merge capabilities, Plastic SCM adapts to the development methodologies and geographical layouts of the teams using it, across all of the popular platforms and server back ends," says Codice's Pablo Santos. "With a small footprint, the product is optimized to run anywhere, on servers or laptops, in vendor and strategic partner sites, from home, from the office or on the road."

Plastic SCM's branch management supports thousands of task-focused branches to enhance developer productivity, code stability, and the speed of product completion. Any combination of branches can be merged, maximizing configuration flexibility. According to Codice, Plastic SCM's small footprint allows installation not only on enterprise-class servers, but also on laptops and desktops, and it is designed for speed over both local and remote networks.
