    Here at Tula Technology, we develop fuel efficient technologies for gasoline powered automotive engines. We adopted Perforce over two years ago for source control of Dynamic Skip Fire (DSF) technology running on a coprocessor of the Engine Control Unit. During that time, we have used Perforce successfully on multiple automotive projects and it has been the key to our success in a complex development environment.

    The 2015.1 release adds a new command, "p4 switch," that is designed to make it easy to switch between different streams when you're in the middle of a pending change. In a previous blog post we looked at a simple example of using "p4 switch" to make a quick change in a dev branch; I thought I'd talk a bit more about what exactly is happening when you run this command.

    On May 1st, 2015, Perforce will officially cease development on P4Web, P4Sandbox, and the review daemon. We will also end support for these products on the same date. The most recent builds of P4Web and P4Sandbox have been archived in the Perforce Workshop for folks who need them. The source code for P4Web is available in the Workshop, and the P4Sandbox source code will be released in the coming weeks. The review daemon source code remains available as before.

    The 2015.1 Helix Versioning Engine release brought one of my favorite Git features to P4D; the ability to quickly make disposable branches for experimenting. Today I’m going to walk you through a time where they recently saved my bacon so you can see if they may help with your work.

    Here's a chance for some face time with a Perforce engineer. We're sending a few off the Island for a few days. We're even buying the beer!

    I recently had the honor of participating in the Version Control episode of #c9d9, the Continuous Delivery (CD) 'Continuous Discussion' series hosted by Electric Cloud. Along with panelists from Macy's, GoMidjets, Sonatype and Electric Cloud, we asked four questions about version control and CD: 

    1. Who should use/what should be in version control?

    2. How does version control affect your CD pipeline?

    3. How will version control evolve?

    4. What are your version control horror stories?
