Dear SCM-Manager community,
it has been some time since we have released the last version of the SCM-Manager at the end of last year. This was over four weeks ago. Rest assured we were not in hibernation but used the time to tackle some larger features which we now proudly present to you.
We built upon the rudimentary export functionality we implemented for subversion in the last release. Now it is possible to export repositories of any type, subversion, git and mercurial. Optionally you can export the repository compressed and/or with additional metadata. Please be aware that the export with metadata is still experimental and should not yet be used for backups.
An exported repository archive contains additional repository-specific data. Through the metadata-import this data can be imported.
We created a new plugin which extends our markdown renderer by allowing you to write PlantUML codeblocks that will be automatically rendered in the markdown view.
This is very useful for visual documentation of processes and interactions.
It is now possible to create a permalink to the active path in the source code view, may it be file or directory, by clicking the button on the left-hand side of the breadcrumbs navigation. The created link will be automatically copied to your clipboard. For all your sharing needs!
The transition to Gradle as our primary internal build tool has taken quite some time. It is a major improvement but there is still some way to go. Some of the benefits include much better performance of our build pipeline and increased usability for our development team. Any plugins which are still written for Maven can be migrated towards Gradle with our dedicated tool.
Are you still missing an important feature? How can SCM-Manager help you to improve your work processes? We would love to hear you most needed features!
