The SCM needs of the engineering department vary greatly from those required by the marketing and legal departments for example
Alameda, CA (Vocus) July 17, 2009
- Perforce Software announced the availability of release 2009.1 of its Software Configuration Management (SCM) system. The latest version features support for previewing web pages and multimedia files as well as the ability to customize the cross-platform interface to individual requirements.
With this release, web developers and artists can immediately preview changes to web, video, and audio content from within Perforce's cross-platform graphical interface, the Perforce Visual Client. A preview tab in the Perforce Visual Client automatically displays the version of the content selected by the user. See attached image.
"This advancement rounds out our visualization capabilities and gets us another step closer to bringing the full power of configuration management to everyone," said Nigel Chanter, chief operating officer of Perforce Software.
Customizing Perforce Functionality for Specific Departments and Users:
Administrators can now customize Perforce's menu options for specific departments or users (for example, artists, developers, testers, and administrators).
"The SCM needs of the engineering department vary greatly from those required by the marketing and legal departments for example," explained Chanter. "Through system customization we can optimize usability and offer the appropriate level of features and functions to each discipline or department throughout the enterprise."
