Seapine Software Announces Surround SCM 3.0 – Complete Change Management Solution

Mason, Ohio—(BUSINESS WIRE)—August 11, 2004— Seapine Software Inc., a leading provider of software development lifecycle management solutions, announced today the immediate availability of Surround SCM 3.0 for software change management. Significant new features, including changelists and atomic transactions, support for Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) and Active Directory, and integration with Metrowerk’s CodeWarrior, give professionals even more control over their change management processes.“The release of Surround SCM 3.0 is exciting because it addresses the needs of both our enterprise change management and software development lifecycle customers,” said Richard Riccetti, president of Seapine Software. “Surround SCM 3.0 and the upcoming TestTrack Pro 7.0 release are lowering the hard and soft costs of change management by combining rich feature sets with easier deployment and application management.”Headlining the new release is the addition of changelists and atomic transactions. Changelists allow users to group changes to multiple files for later operations and historical reporting purposes. Atomic transactions preserve source repository integrity by ensuring actions performed on changelists either succeed or fail as a group.Surround SCM 3.0 also includes LDAP support, which simplifies user account management. Administrators can now validate user logins and retrieve user information from LDAP servers, including Active Directory. LDAP support also reduces user account maintenance by synchronizing directly with Seapine’s license server.“Flexible license management and easy administration are two strong attributes of our application development tools,” said Mr. Riccetti. “LDAP support in Surround SCM 3.0 and upcoming TestTrack Pro 7.0 makes it even easier for our customers to manage their user accounts—especially enterprise customers with hundreds of users.”Metrowerk’s CodeWarrior integration is another new version 3.0 feature. CodeWarrior users can now perform Surround SCM commands from within this popular Integrated Development Environment (IDE). Other new Surround SCM 3.0 features include Surround SCM integration with CruiseControl to automate the software build process, the ability to change usernames in the license server, improved file transfer speed for remote users, and much more.Availability and PricingSurround SCM 3.0 is available immediately. Pricing for Surround SCM begins at $595.00 for a Named license; Floating license pricing is also available.
