Seapine Software, a leading provider of quality-centric application lifecycle management (ALM) solutions, today announced the release of Surround SCM 2009.1, its RDBMS-based software configuration management solution. Surround SCM’s flexible branching, highly granular security settings, and configurable file-level workflows have made it a popular choice of quality-driven software organizations.
In January, Seapine introduced Surround SCM 2009, which moved data storage away from Seapine’s proprietary database to standard relational databases—specifically Microsoft SQL Server and PostgreSQL. Surround SCM 2009.1 adds support for Oracle databases.
“Surround SCM 2009.1 continues our evolution away from proprietary data storage with the addition of Oracle database support,” said Richard Riccetti, president and CEO, Seapine Software. “With Surround SCM’s RDBMS support, our configuration management customers have incredible scalability, flexibility, and performance tuning options available to them.”
In addition to the Oracle database support, new integration features for Microsoft Office 2007 and Adobe Dreamweaver CS4 give Web developers and business users access to full software configuration management functionality, without needing to switch between tools. Support for integrating with Windows Explorer and Mac Finder also allows users to quickly add documents to Surround SCM and easily identify which files are new and which are out of date.
Surround SCM 2009.1 also includes annotate enhancements and support for copying images from the internal image viewer, among other new features. The new version is available immediately for evaluation at Seapine Software’s Web site and is a free upgrade for customers with current Surround SCM maintenance agreements.
