Hi everyone,

The new Plastic SCM GUI (alpha) is now available as of our latest release! It will be included along with improvements in each Plastic SCM releases moving forward. It is now the default GUI for MacOS and Linux and is discoverable in the bottom left corner of the Windows GUI.

The new Plastic GUI will eventually replace our Legacy GUI. It is cross-platform, includes a dark theme and provides better syntax highlighting. Many more improvements are coming soon, including Gluon support!

Try out the new experience and switch back to the Legacy GUI at any time. Feel free to share your feedback with us in our Early Adopter Program forum, which we are actively monitoring for issue reports and feature requests.

Thanks!

Dear MarieChristine

Thank you very much for the new interface.

I selected to switch to it in Plastic SCM Windows Cloud edition, version 11.0.16.6757 running on Windows 7.

Unfortunately Plastic immediately crashed and would not restart.  On trying to restart it gives an error message. The error message is:

"The program can`t start because api-ms-win-core-winrt-l1-1-0.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix problem."

I checked and this file is indeed missing from my system, even though I think I have all the MS redistributables I can run installed. Possibly because I am running Windows 7. I tried reinstalling Plastic (with settings retained) but that did not help as it seems to retain the alpha interface setting.

Is there any way I can set it back to the original interface without a complete reinstall please? (My setup would take quite a long time to reproduce). Or easily install the missing file or files. Happy to change a registry setting if that will resolve.

Kind regards

Mouse

OK found the answer myself!

In C:\Users\Mike\AppData\Local\plastic4\plasticgui.conf

Change:

UseLegacyGui=False

To:

UseLegacyGui=True

I have reported the issue in the Early Adopters forum:

Kind regards

Hey!
I really like the new dark_theme. It only lacks the option to hover over the changset for fast commit info. 

Anyway, I would like to change some of the colors to fit me better. I know where all the themes configs are stored for Legacy GUI but I couldn't find any new config for dark_theme. Can you help me with this? I know it's not fully suportted and maybe never will but I really want to customize it :D

Kind regards

All features that are present in the Legacy GUI will be put into the new GUI. Unfortunately, it is just a case of prioritisation.

Hope this helps!

 

I started using new GUI few days ago, everything is great, I have only one question.

It took me some time (was working on branch alone) but I noticed this GUI is centralized mode only, inferring from your answer distributed mode will be included later. Can you, please, confirm it?

Cheers

A local repository and a sync view can be created in the new GUI. Meaning you can work in a distributed workflow. What exactly were you missing from the GUI?

Every check in automatically pushes to cloud, I would like to have an option to keep change sets locally until I will push them by myself
