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Finder also allows users to quickly add documents to Surround SCM and easily identify which files are new and which are out of date.Surround SCM 2009.1 also includes annotate enhancements and support for copying images from the internal image viewer, among other new features.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.
