Perforce Updates SCM Tools



Perforce Software has announced availability of release 2009.1 of its Software Configuration Management (SCM) system. This release features support for previewing web pages and multimedia files as well as the ability to customize the cross-platform interface to individual requirements. The Perforce Visual Client, is available on Windows, Solaris, FreeBSD, Mac OS X, and Linux.

With this release, web developers and artists can immediately preview changes to web, video, and audio content from within Perforce Visual Client, Perforce's cross-platform graphical interface. A preview tab in the Perforce Visual Client automatically displays the version of the content selected by the user.

"This advancement rounds out our visualization capabilities and gets us another step closer to bringing the full power of configuration management to everyone," said Perforce's Nigel Chanter. He went on to say that "the SCM needs of the engineering department vary greatly from those required by the marketing and legal departments for example. Through system customization we can optimize usability and offer the appropriate level of features and functions to each discipline or department throughout the enterprise."
