Tracking Changes in Surround SCM
Surround SCM 2011 includes the ability to track changes across branches. This feature allows you to easily find out if a change made it to a specific branch. It also gives you a level of traceability that should help streamline your development efforts and save time. The type of changes that Surround SCM now tracks are:Email sign up
- Defect Number
- Duplicate Changes
- Add Branch
- History Window - Select any two versions of a file and see if the 'change' was incorporated in another branch.
- Tools Menu - Investigate if changes associated with a Defect, Changelist, or Label were incorporated in another branch.
- Duplicate Changes Window - Double check where the change was incorporated before you duplicate it (maybe it's already there!).
Keep in mind that you must upgrade to Surround SCM 2011 to track changes.
