    Release Notes: In Perforce Server (P4D), the "p4 move" command was added to move and rename files in client workspaces, and the "p4 logtail" command gives administrators remote access to server log files. In the Perforce Visual Client (P4V) and Perforce Visual Merge Tools (P4Merge), depots can be managed in the Admin Tool, and HTML, audio, and video files can be previewed. Diffed files can be edited in P4Merge. The appearance of Perforce Visual Client (P4V) can be configured. A Java-native API for accessing Perforce was added. A plug-in was added for Eclipse and WebSphere Studio (P4WSAD).

        Release Notes: Client workspaces have a new "SubmitOptions" field that allows users to specify how unchanged files should be handled on submit. "p4 submit" can also now detect files opened for branch/integrate that have been modified in the workspace. Submits can be up to 40% faster thanks to improvements in the database locking and buffering of the journal file. Several changes have been made to improve the management of remote depots, including better lock support and MaxScanRows/MaxResults support. The new MaxLockTime group property allows admins to limit the duration of locks held by members of the group.

          Release Notes: The Perforce server can now log individual file access to an audit logfile. When this is enabled, the server logs every time file content is transfered to a client. The "p4 integrate" command was rewritten, leading to better performance, better recognition of previous integrations (resulting in fewer merges), and better base selection (resulting in simpler merges). The merge algorithm was also rewritten and produces fewer conflicts to resolve, making automatic merging ("p4 resolve -am") more likely to succeed.

              Release Notes: This release includes a number of performance related changes, introduces support for external authentication schemes (e.g. LDAP/ActiveDirectory), and adds the many forms of UTF-16 to the list of supported client character sets. The main performance-related changes are optimization of head revision operations, speedup for the "p4 integrate" command, early release of db.working/db.resolve during sync, server performance tracking, and speedups for workspaces with many opened files.

                  Release Notes: This release includes performance enhancements to "p4 dirs" and "p4 obliterate", passive btree reorganization, and a new "spec" depot (previously undocumented) that versions metadata objects in the repository. Partial filetypes are now supported (e.g. "+l" instead of "text+l" or "binary+l") both on the command line and, more commonly, in typemaps.

                      Release Notes: This release adds new mid-submit and post-submit triggers to supplement the existing pre-submit triggers. Three types of "spec" trigger are executed when users create, read, or modify Perforce "specs" (clients, branches, labels, etc.). Indirect integration is now the default, and "p4 integrate" may now select a common-ancestor for the merge that is not a revision of the source- or target-file. Filepaths containing "@#%" can be added to the repository. Smarter merge logic reduces the number of conflicts in merges.
