    DevTalk: Avoid Git Bloat and Submodule Hell

    Git Fusion’s goal is to give Git and Perforce users an uncompromised experience using the version control tool of their choice while still being able to work together seamlessly. The 2013.2 release gets us closer to that goal and, at the same time, makes Git Fusion easier to administrate and use.

    Introducing Support for Git Tags

    Prior to this release, any tags that were pushed to the Git Fusion service would only be preserved as long as the Git Fusion repository was intact. Now tags of commits are preserved in the Perforce depot, which allows them to be rebuilt if the need arises, as in the case of repopulating the Git Fusion repository. The commit tags can be either annotated or lightweight; both are preserved equally well.

    edge server

    Distributed teams face unique challenges when they practice Continuous Delivery. For example, it’s critical to keep remote teams up-to-date with the latest code changes within an expected response time—past-due changes can cost the team valuable time and money. Similarly, new features require continuous integration via build and test automation, so that developers can receive immediate feedback, and can rapidly, reliably, and repeatedly launch new features. Network latency and bandwidth, and version management server capacity also become critical bottlenecks for Agile distributed teams, severely impeding Continuous Delivery. These challenges slow down the mainline, the team, and ultimately, the business.

    The Perforce server's Spec Depot feature is very handy. If you don't already have a Spec Depot, you should!

    The functionality described in this blog entry is "undocumented", meaning that it is in some respects a work in progress, is subject to change in future releases, and should be treated with a bit more caution than "documented" functionality. With that disclaimer out of the way, let's take a look at how you can now version the character sets for individual Unicode files!

    Swarm is designed to help software teams ship quality software faster and every day we add new, useful functionality. We recently got many requests to further enhance our JIRA integration and so we added a couple of enhancements which make life a whole lot better for those using both JIRA and Swarm.

    Perforce Insights Overview

    As a Perforce user, what kind of reporting on your development projects do you have? Are you tracking the rate of change in your files? Which files are changing most often? How stable is the project?
