Before launching our 2.0.0 release we decided to optimize and modernize our infrastructure. One of the first notable changes is the new packages.scm-manager.org Nexus 3 instance replacing our old Nexus 2 instance on maven.scm-manager.org. With this migration most paths have been…

Change in ownership

Posted on 2020-04-15 by Sebastian Sdorra


In Fall 2018 Cloudogu and I announced a cooperation for this project. Ever since then, a lot has changed in the background. We established a permanent SCM-Manager team at Cloudogu, which I am the leader of. That allowed us to pick up speed in the development of SCM-Manager and to…

SCM-Manager 2.0.0-rc6

Posted on 2020-04-01 by Rene Pfeuffer


One of the core features of SCM-Manager is its extensibility with plugins. Installing, updating and removing plugins requires a restart of the SCM-Manager. And to be honest, we would not have thought this would be so hard.

After trying to destroy the complete context of the…

Issue restart

Over the years, SCM-Manager received a lot of attention and a lot of people had questions. Some of them led to issues on BitBucket, which were migrated to GitHub not long ago. With the release of SCM-Manager 2 getting closer, we would like to get rid of old issues, because we…

SCM-Manager 2.0.0-rc5

Posted on 2020-03-13 by Rene Pfeuffer


Release 2 of SCM-Manager brings a lot of changes, some small, some big. Besides the most obvious change, the completely new user interface, there is the new level 3 REST API, which took us a considerable amount of effort to create.

The new REST API allows scripts and other applications to “navigate” from the top level REST resource (/scm/api/v2) to every resource available and to change them: repositories, sources, configurations, and items from plugins like pull requests. Using the editor plugin it is possible, to add or change…

We migrated to GitHub

Posted on 2020-03-09 by Sebastian Sdorra


As mentioned here, we migrated the scm-manager core repository to GitHub: scm-manager/scm-manager.

We decided to do so due to the removed mercurial support from Bitbucket. This is no statement whatsoever against Mercurial, we will continue to support Mercurial, Git and Subversion…

SCM-Manager 2.0.0-rc4

Posted on 2020-02-14 by Rene Pfeuffer


For some time, the incompatability of SCM-Manager 2 with Java 9 or above has annoyed us. Now we can happily announce, that this is history. With the new version 2.0.0-rc4 SCM-Manager can run on Java 9 and above.

A little error though has not made it into this release: If you are…

SCM-Manager 2.0.0-rc3

Posted on 2020-02-05 by Rene Pfeuffer


Last week we stumbled upon an error in the plugin loader. If you have installed some plugins with dependencies between them, the may end up loading them in the wrong sequence and therefore running into an error. We fixed this error with SCM-Manager 2.0.0-rc3.

If your SCM-Manager…
