Here's what's new from Perforce.

P4Connect 2.7
P4Connect is a free, open source Unity plug-in for the Helix Versioning System. It is faster and easier to use than ever before, enabling developers to perform version control operations entirely within Unity. Features include:
  • Unity 4 and 5 (Personal and Professional editions)
  • 64-bit and OSX support options
  • Workflow enhancements for setup and configuration

P4Eclipse Source Code Released
We have open sourced our popular P4Eclipse plug-in. Developers can build P4Eclipse in a Linux environment with the following prerequisites: Java 6 or higher, Ant 1.6 or higher, Maven 3.x and Eclipse Luna (4.4).

P4Java Source Code Released
Aan open source version of P4Java is now available. This Java API makes it easier for Java applications and tools to access Perforce’s enterprise version management system in a Java-native way. P4Java is targeted for use in: standalone apps that access Perforce services from within the app, plug-ins for Java tools such as Eclipse that need to talk to Perforce servers and J2EE apps where P4Java can be embedded within a servelet or used as a web service.

Perforce Piper 2.0
Perforce Piper is an open source desktop client that is designed to be simpler and easier to use than P4V. It’s been redesigned to be much simpler and faster than ever. Piper is available for Mac and Windows platforms. This mega update includes over 50 new features and bug fixes, including:
  • Added services menu for Adobe Illustrator integration
  • Keyboard shortcuts for Illustrator integration
  • Mac Finder integration: contextual menu items, managing Finder favorites in sidebar, ability to edit files in a folder, etc.

Support Chat Now Available
A couple of months ago we quietly launched live chat on our website, enabling customers to initiate Tech Support cases with the click of an icon. To see it for yourself, just look for the Support bee.

Using Support Chat is very straightforward. Provide your name and email, then enter your question. You’ll be connected directly to one of our Tech Support Engineers via chat. The TSE will have visibility into any previous or current cases, license status, etc. The Support Chat icon indicates when this channel is available (green) or not (red).

New Versioning Course for Designers
Perforce’s video library now includes a new course that is designed especially for graphics and game designers, illustrators and video editors. It provides an overview of how to use P4V to version digital binary assets, such as an After Effects file, MP4 movie file, Camtasia project file, Photoshop PNG and more. Other topics include how to use the Image Diff Tool as well as how to version digital assets directly from your graphical application (Maya, 3ds Max, SoftImage and Photoshop) using Perforce’s P4 Graphical Tools plug-in (P4GT).
