Surround SCM2015.1

21 September 2015

Manage/centralize files for workgroup projects.


Surround SCM is a full-featured version manager that controls who changes your files and remembers what they changed and when. Advanced branching and private branches faciliate concurrent development of products and versions. It provides a central repository to manage changes to your source files and facilitate team collaboration.

What's new in Surround SCM

Version 2015.1:
New Features
  • Run Code Review reports to view historical information about a code review and files in it. Use these reports to review unaddressed comments, review your code review process, or save process information for audits.
  • Create and run Code Review Coverage reports to view information about file versions in code reviews and if the files are approved or still in review. Use these reports to measure coverage of your code review process.
  • Show or hide files with different contents instead of only different timestamps in the Working Directory Differences dialog box. (Native)
  • Set minimum comment lengths for different actions in server options.
  • Set bookmarks to navigate to the repository or files in the branch selected in the Source Tree window instead of a specific branch. (Native)
