Pinned topic ClearCase v7.1

‏2008-07-03T08:08:04Z |
This has been on the cards for a good while now and I heard about it back in Feb this year, but still no sign of an official release date yet, although I've heard that it's likely to be the end of September.

There seem to be a few things being discontinued - the HPUX 11 v1 OS is of concern to my current client:
http://www-1.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21296799
http://www-1.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21295547
http://www-1.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21306477

If anyone has anymore relevant info on this release, please append to this thread for all to see.

Best Regards,
Graham Turnbull

    The list does not mention a CCRC command line interface. Wasn't that originally planned for 7.1, or was it 8.0?

    from what I saw at RSDC (if I remember it correctly) it is not in 7.1, but
    definitely firm in the eyes of the powers to be. Penciling it in for 8.0 is
    a good assumption, but then the numbering and everything may change ...

    We have the latest Beta Release, and we also heart of Novembre.

    But as a result of the tests with the software, well, I would say, a usable version might come next year.

    I noticed in some of the online documentations the supported Internet Browsers Microsoft IE 6 SP1 is listed but not SP2, does ClearCase and CCRC v7.1 support SP2?

    Good question. It is still there in 7.1 but it does make you wonder about the future of it. I could make some guesses but there really should be some statement of direction. Quite a few people have built things using it now.

    Those subscribed to the CCIUG maillist got the original message, so this will be a duplicate. Kenneth Ölwing posted this on Nov 26 but a gateway problem prevented it from being added to the web. I am doing this now manually. I apologize for the troubles. Marc

    It's funny in a way - while I know CCRC, the CM API and server, etc etc is the future, the one thing in this release that to me really feels like a 'woohoo, finally' is the Unicode support (new typemanagers).

    According to the following IBM document of changes in v7.1; "Rational ClearCase 7.1 represents the richest release of the product since Rational ClearCase 4.0".

    The Multisite admin console is certainly a sizeable new addition. Has anyone used this yet?

    Hey Raj,
    I installed ClearCase 7.1 , its very promosing with new features . I noticed there is no documentaion inclueded in the install especially with CM server configuration and CCRC . if you post the configuration guide for CCRC that would be really appriciated .
    thanks
