Seapine Software Delivers Surround SCM 2.0 with Advanced Change Management Features

Mason, Ohio -- August 27, 2003 -- Seapine Software, Inc., a leading supplier of integrated software that manages the software development lifecycle, today announced the immediate availability of Surround SCM 2.0. Version 2.0 of Seapine's cross-platform software change management (SCM) tool includes integration with Borland JBuilder and Macromedia Dreamweaver MX, enhanced expandability and process control, improved communications with email notifications, and security and usability improvements."Developers prefer powerful software change management tools that do not encumber the coding process," said Richard Riccetti, president of Seapine Software. "Surround SCM 2.0 delivers a complete set of change management features that seamlessly integrate with popular development environments and give developers the expandability and control they crave."Seamless integration into integrated development environments is important for an SCM tool's acceptance by the development team. Surround SCM 2.0 doesn't disappoint, providing full integration with Borland's (Nasdaq: BORL) JBuilder, the leading Java™ application development environment. Developers can access Surround SCM's change management features from all operating systems supported by JBuilder, including Windows, Solaris, and Linux. In addition, Surround SCM 2.0 integrates into Macromedia's (Nasdaq: MACR) Dreamweaver MX. Recognizing that change management is a critical component of Web and e-business development, Surround SCM 2.0's Dreamweaver support lets users easily manage, share, and protect Web content in Surround SCM repositories.Triggers and email notification support give developers expandability and improved control over their development process. Triggers are small programs that run before or after various file actions (e.g., check in, promote, delete). Using triggers, developers can extend Surround SCM's functionality to better fit their company's specific change management process. Surround SCM 2.0's email notifications accelerate the change management process by automatically notifying users of file changes or other file actions based on user-configurable rules. For example, a Web designer can automatically notify marketing of Web site changes for review, prior to publishing."Email notification support is an exciting addition to Surround SCM and is sure to be a popular feature," said Mr. Riccetti. "Automatic email notifications enable push-based change management. Pushing change from one user to the next streamlines your workflow, eliminating the need to constantly monitor the source repository for changes."Other Surround SCM 2.0 features include the ability to share user accounts with Seapine's TestTrack Pro issue management tool, the ability to rename and delete files, repositories, and branches, enhanced security with 512-bit encrypted client/server communication, a utility to import data from Borland StarTeam, additional password security options, support for floating licenses, and more.AvailabilitySurround SCM 2.0 is available immediately to customers worldwide through Seapine Partners, Authorized Resellers and Seapine Software.
