  1. Add Gluon support for Linux

    Our entire team are going Linux only for development since Epic now support it with Unreal 4, so support for Gluon on Linux would be wonderful for us.

    • use windows taskbar api

      It is possible to show a progressbar within the windows taskbar.
      It would be nice if you could implement this for all progressbars within plastic. For example check-ins or workspace updates.
      This would mean I can minimize plastic for this time to work on someting else and still be able to see the progress.

      This is what I mean: https://funkjedi.com/w/wp-content/uploads/2009/01/windows7-toolbar.jpg

      You would need to use this: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/dd391692(v=vs.85).aspx

      I've already send Carlos an C# sample file for the implementation ;)

      • Customizable Views for integration in thrid-party applications

        It would be nice if plastic had a web-service which provides graphical HTML5 reports / views for interagtion in thrid-party applications (primarily issue trackers)

        I think of the following:
        - Some branch-explorer like view focusing on one branch (task-branch) which displays the check-ins and merges to and from this branch
        - A list of check-ins to a specific branch (like the history view?)
        - A view showing all changed files in a branch in total
        - you name it. there could be way more!

        This service should have a REST-full URL API where the view and branch path are defined…

        • 'cm merge --to' needs --comment

          The cli command merge needs a --comment parameter when used with the --to parameter. Now, all these merges have no comment at all.

          Also: It would be nice if the merge-to wouldn't need a workspace, when called with fully qualified src and dest.

            • remove "from version control"

              Pending changes view DELETE menu, add option to "remove files from version control"

              IN Workspace explorer/files, Delete has two options, "delete files on disk" and "remove file(s) from version control".
              In Pending changes view, Delete will only delete on disk. However this is IMHO the more likely place you would discover files that are controlled but should be excluded!

              This thread should explain: http://www.plasticscm.net/index.php?/topic/1991-how-do-i-ignoreexclude-directories-that-have-already-been-checked-in/

              Windows GUI and gtkplastic 5.4.16.918

              [ I can't fully test exact behaviour right now because my server is offline at this moment installing updates. Lots of updates... ]

              • Add a connection and license monitor

                When server maintenance is due, it would be great to know if any client is still connected to the server.
                You may add a new cm-command for that or you implement a shiny info screen on the server.

                • Add ignored files without unignore

                  Hi,

                  there is this user voice item:
                  https://plasticscm.uservoice.com/forums/15467-general/suggestions/4230341-add-ignored-files
                  which is about adding ignored files. We have the exact same situation from time to time.
                  The way to unignore the files leads to a crowded ignore list with lots of !xyz.dll entries. Although one could remove that entry once the item is versioned this is often forgotten and the ignore list is updated with the unignored item.
                  Another drawback is that people simply don't understand why they cannot add certain items. Especially when using the explorer context menu for adding items or folder structures there is no action at all. It…

                  • Reduce tab text to fit within tab shapes

                    Reduce the length of the text on the tabs such that it always fits within the shape of the tabs.

                    In the attached Plastic SCM 6.0 screenshot, you can see tabs with names such as:

                    "Items in workspace Freed..."
                    "Pending changes in works..."
                    "Branches from repositorie..."
                    "Branch Explorer for re..."
                    "Cloud repositories"

                    If these had shorter names, which exactly matched the button names, I would be able to mentally identify the tabs quicker:

                    "Items"
                    "Pending changes"
                    "Branches"
                    "Branch Explorer"
                    "Cloud Repositories"

                    The long tooltips with all the details are still useful.

                    • "Touch" files to be able to submit them to a single changelist for merging etc.

                      The Atomic nature of Plastic is really frustrating for Artists and general users who just want to share files.

                      To work around this restriction can you add an option that will "touch" selected files and then they can be submitted to a single changelist in your branch and then pushed, pulled easily to/from other branches.

                      • Improve "Cherry pick from changeset interval" range

                        The "Cherry pick from changeset interval" is a bit confusing to me.

                        For example:
                        I want to cherry pick from changesets cs10 to cs15.
                        So, I intuitively select cs10 and cs15 and do a cherry pick interval merge. But then, I notice, that there is no cs10 involved. The merge begins at cs11 and not cs10.
                        So, when I want cs10 included, I have to select cs9. But that is very unintuitive to me.

                        It get's even worse, when I click on the merge arrow afterwards and it shows me "Changeset interval (9 - 15)".
                        That's wrong, because there is…

                        • Make all Branch Explorer colors customizable

                          In Branch Explorer, the alternating date-background color can be changed via a variable in a .conf file, but none of the other color schemes.

                          There is also the Themes feature in Preferences, but those seem to leave the Branch Explorer unaltered (even leaving it light for the dark themes)!

                          What we do have is the ability to color branches by attribute (conditional format) and to color changesets by user/replication-source. (But sadly, the color by replication source feature is currently broken.)

                          My request is to expose all the border, fill, background, selection and font colors to the user, either via .conf…

                            • "Cherry pick" to

                              Just like the "advanced merge to", allow the user to cherry pick to any branch.

                              This allow the user to avoid switching to the branch he want to cherry pick to, which can be very time consuming (reimporting workspace in a game engine for exemple).

                              • Line wrap (word/character) in embedded diff view

                                This is a very useful feature for diffs with long lines.

                                Now that we have matching inside a line, this would be a natural follow up. With this, there would no longer be any need for horizontal scrollbars in diff view.

                                  The tree view in Pending Changes gives a much better overview/visual structure to the things that were modified. However, per default everything is always collapsed. So for each new change one needs to click-open every single hierarchy level by hand, to reach the assets that were actually changed...

                                  All other tree views (Items, Branches, ...) are affected similarly, and would greatly benefit from such a hotkey.

                                  I suggest to use Alt-click, as for example, Unity uses that same method to selectively and recursively collapse/open subtrees.

                                    • Advanced LDAP Support

                                      Plastic currently only supports basic LDAP integration.

                                      In real-world scenarios, things aren't as clear cut and simple.
                                      I propose extending LDAP support in the following ways:

                                      1. Support secure LDAP (LDAPs). Including self-signed certificates on the LDAPs server.
                                      2. Ability to specify Root DN.
                                      3. Ability to specify User search Base.
                                      4. Ability to specify User search filter (ie, something like sAMAccountName={0}).
                                      5. Ability to Specify Group Search Base.
                                      6. Ability to Specify Group Search Filter ((& (cn={0}) (objectclass=group) ))
                                      7. Group Membership definitions (can optimize with memberOf property).
                                      8. Configurable Local Caching of credentials, TTL etc ....

                                      • Add support for running external tools on selected item(s)

                                        This is an extension of the Custom "Open with" feature, to be able to run external tools/scripts with the selected branch/changeset(s) etc as input arguments.

                                        For inspiration, see the "Tools - External Tools..." implementation in Microsoft Visual Studio. In that dialog, the user can add custom commands to a list that is later displayed in the menu. For each command, you can specify Title, Command Line, Initial Directory and Arguments. For the last two you can use placeholders like $(ProjectDir), $(CurLine) etc. In Plastic we could have placeholders like %wkspace_path, %repo, %selected_changeset etc...

                                        • Allow non-checked out files in changelists

                                          Only files that are checked out can be moved to a changelist. The Checkout-Edit-Checkin workflow isn't required, so this shouldn't be the case.
