We recently found this interesting bit of news that’s relevant to all AccuRev customers. It was buried deep in the recent interim shareholder report from Micro Focus.
It appears that Micro Focus has agreed to acquire AccuRev.
Interestingly enough, we haven’t seen any other news concerning this event. Both companies have been very quiet on the acquisition. It is easy to see that Micro Focus are making the move to bolster their solutions for application lifecycle management as the company continues to focus on the legacy markets.Posted In:

As of the 13.2 product release, a new P4 Connection toolbar is available in P4VS. This handy feature displays your current connection information within the IDE environment, including the server, port, user, workspace, and stream (if applicable). It allows you to switch between your 5 most recent connections, create new ones, and disconnect from the Perforce server.
In addition, the toolbar includes a changelist selector. This shows all pending changelists associated with your current workspace, and allows you to create new ones. When you make changes to files in your solution, they will be checked out in the chosen changelist. This way you can easily group your edits as you work.Posted In:

'Tis the season where those of us here in the States gorge ourselves on pie and potatoes, watch football, and take some time to ponder what we're thankful for. Friends, family, and good health go without saying, so I'd like to take a moment to reflect on the things I'm thankful for as a software developer in 2013.

The Perforce motto is "Version Everything". But few people include database code in “everything”. That's why DBmaestro TeamWork™ and Perforce complement and complete each other.
Working with files and scripts is very different than working with a database. For example, a database is a centralized and shared resource that must be synchronized among the entire team. And database objects have their own syntax for creation and modification. These differences are quite important, and must be carefully considered.Posted In:
