The new DVCS for Visual Studio
Embrace the power of branching and merging.
Fully integrated: everything inside VS
All the views that you find in the Plastic SCM GUI client are available inside Visual Studio, and you can arrange them as you like.
All the power of the Distributed Branch Explorer is there: compare changes, create branches, switch to them, explore remote servers...
Your history, enhanced inside VS
You are editing a file and suddenly something looks strange. This method didn't look like this last time you saw it. Sounds familiar?
That's method history: right click on the method and look at the changes of just that method. Stay focused.
The best place to invoke annotate: right click on the file you are seeing and see who made what.
Move between projects
Plastic SCM supports moving files between projects seamlessly. Just drag and drop your file to another project, Plastic SCM will recognize it.
Sounds like this is what you would expect, right? Well, that's what we think too, yet many SCM tools out there fail to do it.
As you'd expect, when you modify a file, it is automatically checked out by the Plastic SCM Visual Studio integration.
Checking out files can speed up the perfomance of the pending changes calculation and having Visual Studio doing it for you reduces the time you spend waiting.
