Last year we announced support for Mercurial, and today we are proud to announce that the next version of codeBeamer comes with support for both of the most popular distributed version control systems, Git and Mercurial!
Consider this as an addition to the centralized version control systems which codeBeamer already supports, most notably Subversion and CVS. While these two traditional VCS’s already gained industry acceptance, more and more of our users keep asking for DVCS options. This is possible now. In case you want to learn more about why you should give DVCS a try, the Wikipedia article distributed revision control might be a good starting point for reading.
codeBeamer 5.4 with git and Mercurial additionally to Subversion is online from 13th of May 2009 on codeBeamer.com, a downloadable version is also available for qualified beta testers. If there is significant interest, we will provide options for Git and Mercurial also on our free Javaforge project hosting service.
Let us know (comment here or send an email to support at intland.com) if you have any questions or would like to see Git or Mercurial available on Javaforge.
