Like their competitors around the globe, most companies in Japan, Korea and China are under considerable pressure to release products faster and at high levels of quality. While the use of English language tools is tolerable for many developers in these countries, a localized user experience (UI, documentation and error messages) means faster, more productive and—let’s face it—happier contributors. Simply put, with localized products, users are unhindered from translating back-and-forth in their heads as they go.

As of the 2014.2 release, the ability to limit your view of the depot by changelist number, previously only available to import paths in streams, has been extended to "classic" client specs with user-defined view mappings.

We’re excited to announce that we’ve refreshed the UI of our flagship visual client, P4V. Not only did we update more than 200 icons, we also stripped the UI of gradients, shadows and color (where it isn’t meaningful) to make P4V look and feel lighter and cleaner. The user experience is also improved with significantly faster rendering. Don’t worry, though, we preserved P4V’s functionality so these improvements to the UI come at no cost to your productivity. Perforce developers and beta customers alike told us they were able to upgrade without any disruption to their workflow.

At the MERGE 2014 conference, I had the pleasure of presenting with Sven Erik Knop on the topic of P4Search, our popular new web service for content-based searches across your Perforce environment. Our talk explained the inner workings of P4 Search, its setup and applications, and explored ideas on how to extend this great and essential tool. You'll find our presentation here.
Our presentation was limited to 30 minutes, and there were many interesting topics we could not get to. One such topic was the P4Search API, which I'll elaborate a bit on here.
