Helix Swarm 2015.1 Released

Helix Swarm

Swarm is two years old this month!

It’s rewarding to think that just two years ago, our collaboration engine was only just getting into the hands of our customers. Fast-forward to today, where Swarm plays a big part in the daily workflows of so many innovative companies. With much of the functionality now matured, we wanted to expand Swarm beyond just our English-speaking customers.

With the latest release of Helix Swarm, we’ve translated the product into Japanese. It’s available through our exclusive partner in Japan, the TOYO Corporation. TOYO provides expert consulting and support to our Japanese customers, and Swarm joins the Helix Versioning Engine and our popular visual client, P4V, in the suite of Perforce products available in Japanese.

Localization Support for Swarm

The Swarm team spent the last couple of months creating a localization framework and translating the product and documentation into Japanese. The next languages on our list are Korean and Simplified Chinese. If there’s a language you’d like us to add to our list of localizations, please send us your request via the Perforce Swarm Forums or by emailing support and we’ll put it on our radar.

Aside from the localization support, other new functionalities include:     

  • Files and folders are downloadable as ZIP archives
  • Swarm now limits the number of files to display in a committed change to a configurable default of 1000
  • Configurable timeout sets thresholds for large commits
