ACCUREV ANNOUNCES ACCUREV 3.5, NEW VERSION OF ITS BREAKTHROUGH SOFTWARE CONFIGURATION MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

ACCUREV ANNOUNCES ACCUREV 3.5, NEW VERSION OF ITS BREAKTHROUGH SOFTWARE CONFIGURATION MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

AccuRev(R), Inc. today announced the release of AccuRev 3.5, a new and enhanced version of its breakthrough software configuration management (SCM) system that provides developers and administrators with increased flexibility and functionality for complex, enterprise-wide software development projects. Among the new features of AccuRev 3.5 are change packages and full integration with the Eclipse integrated development environment (IDE).

AccuRev 3.5 is built on AccuRev's unique, stream-based architecture, which overcomes the inadequacies of other file-based software configuration management systems. AccuRev's enhanced StreamBrowser(TM) provides a comprehensive, graphical view of the entire project, including all streams or branches, snapshots or baselines, workspaces, and other elements. This new release provides functionality to further enable massively parallel development projects and many simultaneous releases, helping time-pressured developers manage multiple changes to the same software. AccuRev's TimeSafe(R) technology assures that any state of the project is always available, no matter the number of developers working on the project or the number of tracked items involved.

"AccuRev continues to lead the movement for innovation in the SCM market, delivering new capabilities that extend the boundaries of software configuration management," said Damon Poole, CTO and founder of AccuRev. "AccuRev's stream-based architecture is the first breakthrough in software configuration in more than 20 years, and with this new release, we're providing greater functionality and flexibility that developers need to manage today's complex, multi-platform e-business projects."

The new change packages functionality with instant verification provides improved tracking capabilities, and addresses the enterprise need to boost efficiencies locally or closely manage offshore projects. With change packages, developers can easily track changes that have been applied to a particular development effort from project to project, across releases or teams, with greater insight.

"Kronos has a large development team with hundreds of users, including remote developers, who need to work in true parallel development," said John Morris, Director of Quality and Release Engineering at Kronos, Incorporated, an AccuRev 3.5 beta user. "With the new features in AccuRev 3.5, we are able to tightly integrate source control with our project tracking application and eliminate hundreds of hours per year of manual cross-correlation work."

AccuRev now integrates with Eclipse, Sun Java Studio, NetBeans, MS Visual Studio (.NET) and Rational Rose. This complete IDE and tool support enables more developers to work more seamlessly across a broader range of platforms.

The new features of AccuRev 3.5 strengthen AccuRev's built-in best practices, the essential processes that help maximize efficiency and minimize disruption through all stages of a software project. With these best practices, AccuRev enables large enterprise development teams to more efficiently create, modify and maintain highly complex development projects with ease.
