VSoft Technologies Pty Ltd is pleased to announce the immediate availability of FinalBuilder 3.1, the award winning Automated Build and Release management tool for Windows software developers and software release engineers.Canberra, Australia. April 15, 2005 -- FinalBuilder 3.1 is an incremental upgrade for FinalBuilder 3, which was released in February this year. The major changes in 3.1 include integration with Seapine Surround SCM and a console version of FinalBuilder. In addition to the major features, many minor enhancements have been made including upgrading support of 3rd party tools such as XenoCode 2005 and Wise Installer 6, and a new action that attempts to fix COM interop references in C#, VB.NET, or J# Visual Studio project files.FinalBuilder 3.1 is a free upgrade for all existing FinalBuilder 3 users.The new console version of FinalBuilder allows the build process to be run without the overhead of the Windows GUI. This can dramatically increase the speed of the build process and frees up resources on the build machine. The console version is only available in the Professional edition of FinalBuilder."We're very pleased to be able to add Surround SCM integration to FinalBuilder. We already had FinalBuilder actions for a number of other version control systems, and our customers were telling us they wanted Surround SCM integration. We listened, took the time to get to know Surround SCM well, and the result is some very happy customers. Seapine was very supportive of our efforts, which made the integration possible in a very short timeframe." says Vincent Parrett, CEO VSoft Technologies.Seapine Surround SCM integration allows the FinalBuilder build process to interact with the Surround SCM source code repository. Surround SCM is a full-featured version manager that controls who changes files and remembers what they changed and when. Advanced branching and private branches facilitate concurrent development of products and version. FinalBuilder supports the following Surround SCM actions: Get, Check Out, Check In, Label, Create Branch, Freeze Branch, Unfreeze Branch, Check Out Report, and Generic Report. More information about Surround SCM is available at www.seapine.com/surroundscm.html.“Developing quality software requires the ability to rebuild exact duplicates of any version of your software. Surround SCM's integration with FinalBuilder provides an exceptional solution for automating and managing this critical process,” said Richard Riccetti, president of Seapine Software. “We are pleased that VSoft has added direct support for Surround SCM into FinalBuilder 3.1.”FinalBuilder 3 is an end-to-end build and release management system that dramatically accelerates the software development cycle by automating the build process. It can be used to automate everything from integration with version control systems to compilation of source code to burning a CD or DVD.
