    You may have noticed already, but this past weekend we moved from a self-hosted idea gathering site to a new one hosted by aha.io. Aha! is a product management tool that our PMs have moved to in the past few months. While our self-hosted P4IdeaX has been extremely useful over the years, there was always a bit of an air gap between the site and our product management team. With the move to Aha! all your ideas and votes will be right in front of them on a day-to-day basis.

    When starting a complex project, it's wise to verify you aren't re-inventing the wheel. With the wealth of available open source projects it's likely there are useful components (be they libraries, a web server, etc.) or if you're particularly lucky, a product that is close to what you need.

    We’ve built a lot of different tools for our users over the years, but two of the most popular have been P4Java, our pure Java API for Helix, and P4Eclipse, our native IDE integration.

These two tools have been a big win for our Java using community.

    I recently did a DevTalk introducing the new distributed version control system, or DVCS, features we’ve added to Perforce Helix. If you missed the DevTalk, you can see our new features in action by watching the on-demand version. I got a number of really good questions at the end of these talks, so I thought I’d take the opportunity to provide some more detailed answers here.

    Perforce’s own Chris Hoover and Charlie McLouth recently hosted a webinar called ”Learn How to Stop Data Theft Before It Happens,” which gave a great overview of the features and advantages of our Helix Threat Detection capabilities.  As you might guess from the title of the webinar, Helix Threat Detection…
    • Detects anomalous user behavior against the assets stored in Helix repositories. 
    • Eliminates false positives by using advanced math models and machine learning to categorize high-risk users and projects. 
    • Detects internal theft and compromised accounts early enough in the process that you can respond before harm has been done.
