Other major enhancements to TestTrack Pro augment the security options available to users and system administrators. Version 5.1 now offers the administrative option of password naming rules and encrypted data communications. Windows XP users will also appreciate TestTrack Pro 5.1's support for XP Themes.Surround SCM 1.2, Seapine's rapidly maturing source control tool, is equipped with additional security restrictions at the repository level.

Version 1.2 is also noticeably faster than previous versions of Surround SCM.AvailabilityTestTrack Pro 5.1 and Surround SCM 1.2 are available immediately to customers worldwide through Seapine Partners, Authorized Resellers and Seapine Software.
