SCM-Manager 2.0.0-rc6

Posted on 2020-04-01 by Rene Pfeuffer


One of the core features of SCM-Manager is its extensibility with plugins. Installing, updating and removing plugins requires a restart of the SCM-Manager. And to be honest, we would not have thought this would be so hard.

After trying to destroy the complete context of the…

SCM-Manager 2.0.0-rc5

Posted on 2020-03-13 by Rene Pfeuffer


Release 2 of SCM-Manager brings a lot of changes, some small, some big. Besides the most obvious change, the completely new user interface, there is the new level 3 REST API, which took us a considerable amount of effort to create.

Using the editor plugin it is possible, to add or change…

We migrated to GitHub

Posted on 2020-03-09 by Sebastian Sdorra


As mentioned here, we migrated the scm-manager core repository to GitHub: scm-manager/scm-manager.

Posted on 2020-02-05 by Rene Pfeuffer


Last week we stumbled upon an error in the plugin loader. If you have installed some plugins with dependencies between them, the may end up loading them in the wrong sequence and therefore running into an error. We fixed this error with SCM-Manager 2.0.0-rc3.

If your SCM-Manager…

Migration to GitHub

Posted on 2019-10-14 by Daniel Huchthausen


Because of the soon ending support for Mercurial repositories on Bitbucket (link) we decided to move all SCM-Manager repositories to GitHub.

Since there won’t be a major repository hosting platform left that supports Mercurial, it was inevitable for us to migrate the SCM-Manager…
