See the difference

You can now view differences between current and previous file versions in the Surround SCM web client. See specific changes made between versions, and compare the current file version with the previous version or view differences between historic versions.

Enjoy performance enhancements

Several performance enhancements were made to Surround SCM 2015, including:
  • Improved performance when loading server databases and cached mainline branches, rebasing and promoting changes by label, viewing historical rebase and promote actions, and reordering TestTrack connections.
  • Administrators can access server options more quickly when several RDBMS connections are configured.
  • Users with limited security permissions can work with branches and view branch differences more quickly.

Get better Visual Studio integration

When working with solutions under Surround SCM source control, Visual Studio speed and usability is improved. You can now access solutions with a large number of projects more quickly and experience improved performance when working with web site projects.

Repair branches with duplicate root repositories

Administrators can now check for branches with duplicate root repositories when analyzing databases to repair corrupted branches that do not load correctly. Read more about this in the Surround SCM 2015 documentation.
