NXN Software has launched NXN alienbrain 6.0, the latest version of its asset and configuration management system. The company says that version 6 offers over 50 new features and improvements, most of which focus on the product's new software configuration management (SCM) capabilities for programming teams. The new release adds SCM tools like full branching, branch merging, sharing, structural history, atomic get and pinning features -- and these new features apply to the asset management aspects of alienbrain as well. Other features designed for programmers include:
  • Command-line tools for automated processes and shell scripting.
  • Event scripting to allow teams to modify the behavior of existing functionality to suit specific development processes. E.g., create a script that aborts an import if a file does not conform to a certain pixel depth or size.
  • Change reporting tools.
  • A customizable defect and request tracking module.
  • Integration with Microsoft VisualStudio and Metrowerks' CodeWarrior.
  • A new dedicated alienbrain "Developer Client" to complement the pre-existing "Designer Client" and "Manager Client" used by development teams.
  • A licence for Araxis Merge Professional, a third-party visual file comparison and merging tool. Developer, Designer and Manager Clients are available at $690, $990 and $1,990 respectively. A Japanese version is scheduled for late Q4 of this year.
