Version 7.3.1 Released
Complete review of core server routines and updates to improve overall performance. We have also begun creating a .NET interface to the server process to allow development of future interfaces to code repositories and to improve the number of ways client applications can access them including, but not limited to, REST services.
On the client side, we've included several performance improvements and a new Quick Filter feature to allow filtering of projects so that multi-product/project repositories can quickly be filtered to show what is required.
Version 220.127.116.11 Released
Update to fix an issue with the last version of the TC Server. The issue caused the server to occasionally shut down without warning. This issue was only reported by a few users using version 18.104.22.168 of the server and has been resolved in this release.
On the client side, as well as fixing a few minor issues, we have improved the 'New Files' panel in Version Manager. The New Files panel can now recursively search all subfolders of the selected folder and find all files that need to be added without the user having to add each folder individually as currently. This means that you can now add all files matching the New Files Filters in a single step.
Users can now also define their own folder for storage of settings and cached data. This can be found In the Tools/Options/Other page of both Tracker and Version Manager. Definition of this path can include environment variables.
In addition, the issue where, under 64-bit Windows, the individual panels in Version Manager and Tracker did not resize correctly when the main window was resized has now been fixed.
Remember that the client updates are always free, and will run against version 7.1 of the server. If running against a 7.2 version of the server, additional functionality will be available.
Development is continuing on the 64-bit (Windows and Linux) versions of the Server. If you would be interested in beta-testing either the Linux or Win64 versions, please contact us.
If you are waiting for the Rad Studio XE2 IDE Integration, we are currently working on it and should have something available in the next couple of weeks. In the short term, you can download the source code for the IDE integration from:
and build it yourself.
Version 22.214.171.124 Released
Minor update as part of our ongoing conversion of the code base to support 64-bit Windows and Linux. During the process we have made some changes to improve performance both on the server and the client.
Other than the changes mentioned above, the following changes have also been made:
- Version Manager - Added the ability to get/checkout by date.
- Tracker - Added the ability to query by 'Requested By' field.
The conversion is an on-going process (Server/Command-line first, then the UI client), and we will be making fairly regular updates to the 32-bit version of both the client and server in the process, so keep an eye on our site.
The installer has also been updated and, for the server, now creates the default repository in the Windows AppData folder to avoid UAC issues.
If you would be interested in beta-testing either the Linux(32/64) or Win64 versions, please contact us.

In addition, includes minor bug fixes.
Version 184.108.40.206 Released
A maintenance release to fix the occasional Access Violation messages encountered while using the GUI Client, especially when left open all the time.
More importantly, for Tracker, we have improved the query performance when using queries that include a Project filter.
Version 220.127.116.11 Released
This release adds Rad Studio 2010 IDE Integration support for Version Manager, and fixes an issue with recursive gets in the SCC API integration. It also fixes a fairly major issue with the 'Tidy Revisions' function in Version Manager (deletion of the wrong revisions when certain criteria were specified).
For Tracker, we have added the ability for issue types to be redefined. As well as being able to modify the type names, the visual icons can also be changed
Also included are the usual minor fixes and performance enhancements.
To access the ability to redefine issue types, you will need to update the server as well.
Version 18.104.22.168 Released
This release fixes an Issue with the Shadow Folder addin, and also makes that addin View-aware. In addition, with the Server update, the ability to allow CheckInOut users Add rights now extends to Deleting Folders and Files (optionally).
In Tracker, we have added the ability to define an offset when initially creating Issues to define how the CompleteBy field is set, and fixed some issues with the exported XML.
As well as the above, a few other minor issues in the UI have been resolved.
The client-side update is free for existing registered users of the relevant modules of TeamCoherence, regardless of the server version.
