We are pleased to announce the availability of the 2012.1 beta release of P4VS,
the Perforce Plugin for Visual Studio. Now you can perform all of your daily
interaction with Perforce naturally, like checking in code and viewing file history,
directly from the IDE.

If you’re a power user looking for a bit more, P4VS won’t disappoint.
P4VS is fully compatible with Perforce Streams, and the Stream Graph
is accessible from the IDE, along with Time-lapse View and Revision
Graph. If you are responsible for branch management, you can merge
from P4VS as well.

And, if you work remotely or want to do a little private branching,
P4Sandbox can be configured through P4VS.

A Big Step Up

Many Visual Studio users have relied on P4SCC as their Perforce
integration, and P4VS will be a big improvement. P4VS is built using
P4API.NET, Perforce’s API for the .NET programming environment, and
is a fully compliant Visual Studio Integration Package. This means
P4VS will be faster, more stable, and integrate more tightly into the
Visual Studio environment. We also have more flexibility to add new
features, like our support for P4Sandbox.

Calling All Beta Testers

P4VS makes Perforce an even better fit in the Visual Studio
environment. P4VS supports Visual Studio 2008 and 2010 on 32- or
64-bit Windows operating systems, and works with a Perforce server at
version 2008.1 or newer. (Some features may not be available with
older servers.) Fill out our brief survey to let us know what you think.

In the meantime, if you’re interested in learning more about P4VS,
or you’re a Visual Source Safe (VSS) user looking for a better
solution as VSS reaches the end of mainstream support, check out this
webinar.

Thank you for trying our beta release.
