The launch of PureCM 2010-1 already seems to have happened in the distant
past, but actually it's just three months ago! And now comes PureCM 2010-1d,
labelled 'PureCM 2010-1 SQL Server' for very obvious reasons.
This is certainly great news for customers already working with SQL Server,
as it allows them to leverage existing skills and infrastructure. So the
question is "what option should I choose? and why?".
To help you answer this question, you can find tutorial links below that
compare SQLite and SQL Server, including an in-depth performance comparison.
But first, read on to learn more about our latest release or the best
practice 'SDC' blog.
PureCM 2010-1d has arrived
...and it comes with SQL Server
After introducing SQLite as its default and embedded database with
PureCM 2010-1, the latest 2010-1d release now adds support for SQL
Using existing infrastructure? Assuring scalability? Making use
of the powerful database management tools? All this becomes available
with PureCM 2010-1d.
We've created a few articles to compare the currently supported
database system should I use?

Usability enhancements in 2010-1d
PureCM 2010-1d is much more than
'just' support for SQL Server. Here's a summary of what else you
can expect with this latest release:
- We've also made it easier to work with the new projects layer,
adding the merging and manage components wizards
to the 'Projects' view.
- Introducing the 'Release Finder', which lists
the releases that included a specific task.
- Working with projects, it's also possible now to switch
a workspace with changes (automated shelving/unshelving)
or even to move a feature branch from one version to another.
- Finally, development managers will find new report templates
being added, starting with the task burndown and developer status
reports in this release.

CM Crossroads, the leading experts
portal on configuration and release management, has featured PureCM's

New SDC blog series has been a success
We've completed our first 'Solving
Development Challenges (SDC)' blog series that was started with
the launch of PureCM 2010-1. The blog covers developent challenges
and links them to solutions in PureCM in an easy to digest way:
one challenge, one blog.
Traffic on these 13 episodes has been great, proving that the topics
such as 'Branching patterns', 'Working with a work
item hierarchy', 'Implementing code reviews' or 'Project
status reporting' are indeed relevant.
If you were wondering about the advantages of the PureCM 2010-1
release and haven't visited our blog yet - this is the time. We'd
love to hear from you, so feel free to comment on the articles to
share your view!

Did you know?
...that feature streams are highly
automated in PureCM 2010-1?
Isolating features on their own stream keeps the development version
(or stream) release-ready, giving you some much needed flexibility.
So far, using feature streams resulted in additional overhead -
but not any more!
me about the details
...that you can share folders between projects?
Shared folders greatly facilitate working with component-based
development, as changes to a component are automatically applied
to all linked locations.
