The most important thing I always get from our periodic MERGE conferences is surely all the great time spent with customers, whether listening to their presentations or just chatting between events. They’re literally at the heart of everything we do, because without them Perforce wouldn’t, nay couldn’t, exist.

Today's post is for those of us who still find ourselves spending a good chunk of our time at the shell prompt. Here are some of the minor features we've gained in 2016.1 to address common command line annoyances:
The --me option
#1237288 (Bug #79804) ** The new option '--me' can be used with 'p4 changes' and 'p4 clients/labels/branches' as a shorthand for '-u $P4USER'.
This simple little feature came out of the observation that we spend a lot of time typing "-u my_name", and if you're writing a script that wants to do something like it, you're probably spending even more time getting the script to figure out what "my_name" should be. Now it's just "--me"!

With over 400 attendees buzzing through the Parc 55 Hotel in San Francisco, Perforce's MERGE 2016 is off to a great start!

One of the most exciting elements of MERGE are the Versionary Awards. Now in their third year, the Versionaries recognize the boldest and the bravest in enterprise version control.
We received hundreds of worthy nominations from companies big and small, and selecting the winners was not easy.
