What's in the Latest Release of P4V?

The 2017.2 release of P4V adds rich features to the already intuitive developer interface, offering flexibility within any product development workflow.

Visualize Empty Changelists

Helix Visual Client 2017.2 simplifies the search process by indicating collapsed, empty changelists in blue.

URL Handling in Jobs

Helix Visual Client (P4V) now recognizes URLs and provides links to files associated with a Perforce job. Streamline your work by cutting out the middle man — your bug tracking software, for example — when you need to complete jobs associated with user’s crash report files, software design change recommendations, or database dumps.

Shortcuts in Custom Tools

Ditch your mouse (and the Tools menu) and trade them in for your keyboard. Helix Visual Client lets you access your custom tools via keyboard shortcut to boost your productivity with streamlined workflows.

Incorporate Code from One Feature Stream to Another

Move a feature stream from one parent stream to another simply by dragging it over to the new stream as a child. You can also shelve the specific files that you want to migrate by moving the stream over, unshelving your files, and incorporating the code into your first feature.

Specify Stream Depth from P4Admin

Struggling to manage large depots and lots of streams? 2017.2 allows you to organize streams into logical hierarchies as you see fit by specifying stream depths from the Admin tool when creating stream depots.

Include Integrated Changelists on a Directory

The next time you branch or move a directory, opt to see the entire integration history of a folder so that you can see the list of submitted changelists that affected it prior to its change in location.

Raise Your Dashboard Limit

2017.2 empowers users with the ability raise — or even lower — the limit on the number of files they can view from their dashboard. Administrators can rest easy knowing that the global property allows them to retain overall control over users who set their limits too high or the ability to allow specific groups certain limit rights.

What's in the Latest Release of P4V?

The 2017.1 release gives developers unprecedented freedom to work with project files and version their work in any way they choose.

Leverage DVCS Functionality

DVCS functionality makes it easy to work—and version your work—from a personal server. You can initialize a personal server from the New Connection dialog or from the P4V toolbar. Quickly clone by context-clicking in the P4V depot tree or using a remote specification. Fetch changes and resolve conflicts easily. Push changes to a remote, shared Helix server with a single click.

Manage Remote Mappings

The new remote mappings tab lets you create and edit remote mappings on your personal and remote Helix servers from within the graphical interface. Put time back on the clock by setting the maximum number of revision archives to receive from your Helix server and reduce the time it takes to sync large binary files with revision history.

Integrate Helix Core with Helix ALM for Full Lifecycle Coverage

Helix ALM is a single, integrated solution for centralizing and managing requirements, test cases, issues, and development artifacts. This flexible, end-to-end application lifecycle management solution integrates seamlessly with Helix Core to cover your entire development process.
