Share Article

AccuRev Inc. today announced at SD Best Practices Boston its latest breakthrough in software configuration management (SCM), AccuRev 4.6, and two new partners that bolster the Company's application lifecycle coverage and enterprise services reach. (Read more about AccuRev's two new partners announced today at http://www.accurev.com/accurev-news.html).

AccuRev continues to solve the problems of today's complex and changing software development environments, bridging the needs of both developers and managers for improved productivity with a lower total cost of ownership. Our focus remains to offer more value than existing SCM tool sets for organizations with geographically distributed and outsourced teams managing multiple releases in parallel.

    AccuRev 4.6 will debut new functionality that addresses the productivity requirements of developers while meeting the process, visibility and cross-platform needs of managers. This release builds on AccuRev's award-winning SCM solution for today's complex software development problems by providing the following new features:

-- Change Package Dependencies - This latest breakthrough in AccuRev change packages enables developers, release engineers and team leads to visually identify and manage the issue dependencies between code changes throughout the AccuRev stream hierarchy. Issue dependency adds greater support for large scale software projects spanning multiple teams.

-- VersionSlider - This new feature enables a developer to quickly see how source code files have changed over time in a dynamic, graphical display without the need to perform separate history, annotate and diff operations on previous versions of files. Developers can quickly perform code reviews, view file diffs and determine what changes were made and when, just by adjusting the slider.

-- More Flexible Symbolic Links - Enhancements to symbolic links help release engineers to manage complex code and project dependencies in AccuRev by supporting UNIX platforms and improving cross-platform capability to share files across projects.

-- AccuWorkflow Enhancements- Development teams now have the ability to define, design and ensure compliance with an issue-based lifecycle workflow directly within the AccuRev SCM tool. Teams can incorporate and test new development processes, and can gradually update and improve their existing process. The result is a unified view of project status, issue data, and task assignments combined with the ability to manage releases through compliant and flexible process integration. AccuWorkflow provides project level management coupled with interfaces that allow individual contributors to see their impact on the larger context of a release train.

Lorne Cooper, president and CEO, AccuRev said, "AccuRev continues to solve the problems of today's complex and changing software development environments, bridging the needs of both developers and managers for improved productivity with a lower total cost of ownership. Our focus remains to offer more value than existing SCM tool sets for organizations with geographically distributed and outsourced teams managing multiple releases in parallel."
