Seapine Software, Inc., a provider of adaptable application lifecycle management (AALM) solutions, announced the immediate availability of Surround SCM 4.0 for software change management. Version 4.0 of Seapine’s cross-platform SCM solution adds features such as full WebDAV and Unicode support, improved branch management, and enhanced reports.
Surround SCM version 4.0 offers full support for WebDAV. This feature gives users access to the most recent versions of their files from any Web browser. WebDAV support also enables users to integrate Surround SCM into Microsoft Windows Explorer, Mac OS X Finder, Linux davfs filesystem, Adobe Photoshop 7.0, and additional applications.
To accommodate development teams and users developing products for markets outside North America and Western Europe, Surround SCM 4.0 includes full Unicode support, allowing users to work with files, labels, and comments in any language. All Surround SCM 4.0 clients on all supported operating systems are Unicode enabled.
In addition, Surround SCM 4.0 users can now view differences between selected file versions or all file versions in a selected branch. The resulting differences report is generated in standard diff format for use with third-party file patch utilities such as the open source tool GNU patch. Other enhancements in Surround SCM 4.0 include new branch attributes, automatic software update notification, and more.
