PureCM Announces New Visual Studio Client With Its Latest 2010-2 Release
19th October 2010 - PureCM.com Ltd, the change and configuration management specialist has announced a major update of their Visual Studio client as part of their latest 2010-2 release.
The reworked Visual Studio client enhances the existing version control capabilities by giving full access to the PureCM task tracking and release planning functionality. Users can now manage their development lifecycle within Visual Studio, including scheduling and assigning tasks, creating team and private branches, checkpointing code changes and checking on project progress.
"Being able to perform all relevant development tasks within Visual Studio is a major productivity factor for development teams," said Stephen Worthington, Development Manager at PureCM. "Traditionally, Visual Studio integrations have focused on version control tasks only, such as checkout/checkin and file history. This is no longer sufficient, as agile teams want to work with integrated task tracking and flexible branching and merging to support ever shorter iterations."
Strong focus on performance improvements for large teams
Significant development time was also invested into achieving performance enhancements for large teams. PureCM Professional facilitates parallel development and encourages private branches with its auto-creation and customisable auto-merge support. The latest performance enhancements now allow teams to work with thousands of branches and keep them up to date automatically thanks to the new background merging functionality.
Additionally, support for 64 bit installations on Windows has been added. 64 bit installers for PureCM 2010-2 are now available for all supported Windows and Linux operating systems. Taken together, these performance improvements further improve scalability, complementing PureCM's built-in support for leading database systems such as SQL Server or SQLite.
