CollabNet SourceForge Enterprise Now 'TeamForge'

CollabNet has introduced CollabNet TeamForge 5.2, a successor to its CollabNet SourceForge Enterprise. This version of the company's core product contains enhancements, including new features for Subversion management, lab management. and cloud provisioning capabilities, and an Agile-ready plug-in for the Hudson continuous integration engine. CollabNet TeamForge 5.2 is available here as a free trial download.

TeamForge 5.2's role-based access control provides distributed software development teams with increased management visibility, governance, and control of mission-critical software in Subversion repositories. TeamForge 5.2 also provides granular, path-based permissions for even more flexible Subversion repository access control, enabling organizations to manage employees', partners', and contractors' access to particular code trunks or branches.

CollabNet TeamForge 5.2 provides development services to support software development in the cloud with its new lab management capabilities. This lets developers define and modify profiles and software stacks and provision these profiles on both physical and virtual build-and-test servers from any public or private cloud. Users can access servers from CollabNet's OnDemand Cloud, Amazon EC2, and their own private clouds. TeamForge 5.2 also includes Hudson's continuous integration capability, enabling Hudson users to provision and access build-and-test servers from any of these clouds.

CollabNet TeamForge 5.2 provides enhanced support for the Agile software development methodology by integrating with the Hudson continuous integration engine via a CollabNet plug-in for authentication, permissions, and automatic uploading of build results. CollabNet TeamForge also supports every other development methodology, environment, and technology, making it the most flexible and open ALM platform available. The new Hudson plug-in increases the speed and flexibility of software development, enabling developers to share build results as part of their workflow. CollabNet has contributed the plug-in as open source to the Hudson community.
