Bug

The fast-update operation failed when file system permissions of a directory were changed. Now it's fixed.

Bug

The merge operation failed with the error '{path} is not in a workspace' when it had to apply changes under a cloaked directory that was loaded previously on disk at some point (i.e. has out-of-date contents), and those changes are now under a different path.

Bug

Windows: Plastic got stuck when displaying the form to get archived revisions on disk. Now it's fixed.

Bug

Windows gluon: Selected checkboxes seemed disabled due to a grey color. Use normal color instead.

Internal and public releases

The Plastic SCM development team works in short iterations delivering frequent releases.Our goal is to have at least one new release every week, with new functionalities, bug fixes and performance tweaks.

Every 'weekly' release is not published to our customers, but we like to detail each of them in the release notes so users can easily follow what we achieved on every short iteration.

The releases marked with the word "public" are the ones we do publish on the website. The ones marked as "internal" are the releases we create in-house to keep the project moving week after week.

Version numbering

Starting in Plastic SCM 4.0 the version numbering schema has been modified:

  • major.minor.compatibility.buildnumber

  • Sample: 5.0.44.511 means:
    • 5 -> major release number
    • 0 -> minor release number
    • 44 -> compatibility -> all clients and servers with "44" in the compat number are compatible, even if the build number changes
    • 511 -> internal build number
