CollabNet Desktop Visual Studio Edition 2.0 Introduced

CollabNet has introduced version 2.0 of its CollabNet Desktop Visual Studio Edition, which lets developers using Microsoft Visual Studio access the functionality of the CollabNet TeamForge ALM platform and the Subversion software configuration management (SCM) tool directly from their IDEs. CollabNet Desktop Visual Studio Edition will be compatible with Visual Studio 2010.

CollabNet Desktop Visual Studio Edition is available as an open source download, and Version 2.0 will be available when CollabNet TeamForge 5.3 is released in December, 2009.

The AnkhSVN component of the desktop solution enables developers to perform common Subversion-related tasks without leaving Visual Studio, including viewing the status of source code, updating a Subversion working copy, committing changes, and browsing repositories. Associations between pieces of code or between code and defects are made with drag-and-drop precision, eliminating the need for re-typing or cutting and pasting of defect numbers. Multiple issue and bug trackers are supported for end-to-end collaboration between developers and testers for defect management.

"CollabNet Desktop Visual Studio Edition serves as a hub within the IDE for all change management and version control activity for the Visual Studio developer," says CollabNet's Jim Ensell. "The new software links Visual Studio, CollabNet TeamForge, and Subversion tightly together to provide a complete platform for globally distributed and collaborative software development."

CollabNet is also releasing CollabNet Desktop Eclipse Edition 2.0.
