Seapine Software Ships Surround SCM – Complete Change Management for
Cross-Platform Development Teams

Mason, Ohio — (BUSINESS WIRE) – September 5, 2002 — Seapine Software,
Inc., a leading provider of software development lifecycle management
solutions, announced today the immediate availability of Surround SCM, the
company’s cross-platform software change management solution.

Surround SCM provides complete control over source code changes to software
development teams that require remote access, integrated defect tracking,
and advanced branching and merging capabilities, without sacrificing price
or ease-of-use.

Surround SCM is a cross-platform solution with client and server support on
Microsoft Windows, Linux, Solaris, and Mac OS X operating systems. Graphic
user interface clients are available on all supported operating systems, a
feature unique to Surround SCM. For distributed development teams, Surround
SCM transparently supports remote access over TCP/IP networks, including
the Internet.

Complete change management requires strong organization of source code
modifications, development issues, defects, and change requests. “Surround
SCM’s tight integration with Seapine’s defect management solution,
TestTrack Pro, provides a software change management solution competitive
with Merant’s PVCS Professional (NASDAQ:MRNT) and Rational’s ClearQuest
(NASDAQ:RATL) only at a much lower cost,” said Richard Riccetti, President
of Seapine Software. “Surround SCM fits perfectly with our strategy of
lowering the costs of managing the software development process and
improving quality.”

Indeed, Surround SCM’s branching and merging features are comparable to
products costing more than twice its price. Using Surround SCM, development
teams can easily model their development and build processes to ensure
changes are managed completely at each stage of a project. For example,
each engineer can work within their own workspace, isolated from each team
member’s changes, but still taking full advantage of the benefits of a
client/server source code repository.

Surround SCM is also a full replacement for Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) Visual
SourceSafe and integrates fully into Microsoft’s popular development
IDEs-Visual Studio 6 and Visual Studio .Net. To help customers make an easy
transition, Seapine includes a migration program to move files and their
change history from Visual SourceSafe into Surround SCM. And, Seapine’s
competitive upgrade is priced equivalent to a SourceSafe version upgrade,
making it easy to justify moving to the more powerful and capable Surround

Surround SCM is available immediately to customers worldwide through
Seapine Partners, Authorized Resellers and Seapine Software at ( . Surround SCM is priced at $395
for a single named user license. Surround SCM is also available in a bundle
