Vault 6 Roadmap

Posted by Jeff Clausius Thu, 01 Sep 2011 21:04:00 GMT

You’ve seen my post about Find in Files and the updated Vault notification system for Vault 6. But, what we’ve been quiet about is a new platform - Mac OS X!

Until Vault 6, users just had a command line client or the Eclipse integration component to run Vault on other platforms. However, with Xamarin’s Mono platform, you’ll have the full capability of a Vault GUI client on Mac OS X at your fingertips. Also note, the Vault GUI client should be able to work on other Linux variants that support the Mono platform as well.

Here is the link to the Roadmap for this and the other features within Vault 6 - Vault 6 feature outline

An update on Vault 6.0

Posted by Jeff Clausius Mon, 24 Jan 2011 13:23:00 GMT

Over the last month or so, we’ve been working on the planned features for Vault 6.0. There has been great internal discussion on which new features and customer requests to include in this release.

The official Vault 6 feature page can be found here at Vault 6 feature outline -

Here are some of the more noteworthy features that are tentatively planned for Vault 6:

    Content Searching - Vault 6 will have an index on repository file content. Clients will be able to search for files containing a given text string.
    Event Notification - A new event notification system in which users will be notified directly within the client of changes to the repository or a work item.
    Classic Client - Vault 6’s Classic Client will implement the latest specification for Microsoft Source Code Control Interface (MSSCCI).

For the Vault Professional users:

    Time Tracking - Functionality for time allocation within a work item to let you manage and track the time users spent working on a feature or bug.
    Work Item Audit Trail - Vault 6 will improve functionality around capturing and displaying modifications made to a work item’s details.

Some really cool stuff!

We’re excited about this release, and are tentatively planning a Beta program for Summer 2011.

Vault 4.1 / Fortress 1.1 beta 2 is released

Posted by Paul Roub Thu, 17 Jan 2008 08:27:00 GMT

The new betas are out! Fortress 1.1 beta 2 and Vault 4.1 beta 2 were released yesterday – see the release notes here, download Fortress 1.1b2, or download Vault 4.1b2.

Vault Changes since Beta 1:

  • VS.Net Context Menus: The VS.Net Client’s context menus were rearranged in order to provide easier access to commonly used operations.
  • Better progress indicators In the VS.Net client: The Add Solution and Check In commands now give status as to what is occurring.
  • Refresh Source Control Status: In the VS.Net client, there’s a new menu item in the File->Fortress submenu to refresh all source control statuses to update file icons in the Solution Explorer.
  • New Look: After 5 years with the same icons, Vault now has a new icon set.
  • 64 bit support: We’ve corrected the installer issue that was preventing server installs on a 64 bit OS. IIS will still need to be put into 32 bit mode.
  • Project Rename: Projects can now be renamed in the Visual Studio client.
  • Fix for an unregistered dll: Numerous people upgrading from the 4.0 client to the first 4.1 beta noted exceptions caused by an unregistered dll. This beta should fix those issues.
  • Fixed Eclipse 3.3 thread access errors: Eclipse 3.3 caused some problems on startup, giving a thread access error.
  • Other bug fixes: Lots of other minor tweaks and fixes to issues reported in Beta 1.

Fortress Changes since Beta 1:

  • New GUI based work item tracking window: The new work item tracking window allows you to query, add, edit, and browse work items without leaving the Fortress Client. Also, the new work item tracking window provides all of that capability while browsing for bugs to update with a source control check in.
  • Image Paste and Edit: The Image paste and edit functionality which was only available in the Eclipse client for the first beta is now available in the Fortress Visual Studio client and the standalone GUI. In addition, work item attachments can be added by dragging files onto the attachment control.
