  1. Please make all release notes findable on your website

    Many times I find that the most complete, or the ONLY, documentation on some features in Plastic SCM can be found in the release notes. (Example: the "multi-screen diff" feature is mentioned but nowhere explained.)

    Additionally, on forums and uservoices etc a specific release note may be mentioned for reference.

    Unfortunately, it seems that many of the in-between release notes disappear from the web after a while, or at least they are very hard to find.

    With all this in mind, please make it easy to find every Plastic SCM release note ever issued! ;)

    • Add ways to disable Diff auto-updating on changeset

      The new "multi-screen diff" in Plastic 6.0 is excellent. It was introduced in 6.0.16.884; if you have the Plastic SCM main window open on part of your screen, and open one diff window on another part of your screen, then the diff window's contents will change when you move around in the Branch Explorer.

      (Slightly related uservoice: https://plasticscm.uservoice.com/forums/15467-general/suggestions/15615156-show-diffs-in-branch-explorer-and-changesets-views )

      However, this has a few flaws related to cases where you don't want the "Diff changeset" window to change. To stop the Diff from updating when you click a changeset, you need more than one Diff window open. This is OK…

      • Integrate with Wrike project management tool

        Want to be able to select a wrike task from within the Plastic SCM to link a task to.

        Would also be handy to automatically create wrike tasks when a code review is created and for it to assign the the user.

        • Refresh pending changes before check-in 'option' and prompt if new changes available

          Sometimes I forget to refresh when I submit my check-in so I end up making two changesets with the same comment.

          I'd like the check-in to either prompt me and tell me it's a partial check-in since I don't have everything select

          or

          it does a refresh before I check-in and prompts me if there are added, modified,or deleted files newly listed in the pending changes window and if i'd like to proceed with current check-in.

          • Drag and drop files into workspace

            You can currently drag and drop files from your pending changes into a folder which is really handy when you've really stuffed up and can't shelve your changes (like deleting a changeset that you have currently selected).

            But it also be nice to drag and drop files into the workspace so I can utilise the awesome search feature and replace the files I just stuffed up in the above example.

            • Permiso de borrar changeset propios

              En vez de solo permitir/denegar borrar changeset, tener la opción de ser más flexibles, y permitir activar la opción de borrar los changeset propios, un usuario podría borrar sus propios changeset, pero no los de otro

              • improve the image diff tool to include a threshold for pixel values

                It would be nice to improve the image diff tool so that small differences in pixels can be ignored with a threshold values. For example for JPEG images that just have a small difference in compression artifacts.

                Maybe something like this could be implemented?https://github.com/mapbox/pixelmatch

                • request for cm diff command option to be able to see path info for xlinks

                  We need to be able to do a diff on a repository on a server (without workspaces) and then get the OLD version of a file through any xlink.

                  cm diff OLD NEW

                  You don’t get the path on the remote repository from a diff on current repository.

                  If I do a cm diff in the first repository, There is NO path information through the xlink. And ALL the information is related to the NEW changeset.

                  So you can not do a simple diff using the FIRST repository’s information:

                  $ cm ls '/one/two/My link with spaces/bird/file1.txt' --tree='24@00000000_99_TEST_REPO_3a@myhost:8087' --format="{revid}"

                  Can't resolve…

                  • Don't show expansion rules info popup when unnecessary

                    When the expansion rule has already been created and the dialog has already been shown, or when the Xlink is read-only, this dialog becomes an unnecessary nuisance.

                    • Jira integration should be able to transition issues through Jira workflow and maintain all data

                      Jira integration should be able to transition an issue once it is checked in to PlasticSCM with a tag like [FIXED], and then this will move the issue in Jira to the 'Ready for QA' column in the workflow. It should maintain in the information who committed the change, the changeset, any details available.

                      • 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.

                        • 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/

                              • 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:

                                  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…
