the launch of our new PureCM 2009-2 release. Much improved
Visual Studio integration, as well as better supported server merging are
among the main features, but just read on to get the details.
A new release is always great motivation to look forward, which is why
you will also find some details about our roadmap in
this newsletter. What are your thoughts? Which features are you missing
most when working with PureCM? Let us know about your point of view and

about how to get started with PureCM. This is why you can now choose
your PureCM edition.

core, offering the features you need to control change, manage
your configurations and get an automatic audit trail - regardless
of where your team members are working.

such as issue tracking, reporting, caching servers for distributed
teams and better support for parallel development.

PureCM Roadmap - Have Your Say
There are a few features, which
are already in development due to popular demand. These are planned
to become available with PureCM 2010-1:
- Support for "SQL type" database backends:
SQLite, SQL Server and MySQL.
- A solution for simple task-based development,
allowing to focus on tasks only: raise, schedule, assign, resolve,
(merge), test, release. Contact
me to beta-test this feature!
Besides these changes, we're interested to learn about your point
