OpenMake Meister and Mojo 7.21 Take Flight

Meister and Mojo 7.21 to be released December 15, 2008 with enhanced workflow technology and pre-commit builds

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- OpenMake Software, a leading provider of build to release management solutions, today announced the general release date of OpenMake Meister and OpenMake Mojo 7.21. The 7.21 release includes close to 100 user requested enhancements, technology for nested workflows and pre-commit builds for improving the quality of continuous integration. 7.21 will be available for general release on December 15, 2008 and will be available for download from http://www.openmakesoftware.com/download/.

"Improving build quality is key, not only for agile developers in their continuous integration build process, but all developers looking to streamline and improve software quality" states Tracy Ragan, COO OpenMake Software. "Meister allows developers to 'test' their build locally prior to committing their changes to the team source repository." This pre-commit build allows developers to determine if they have made a source code change that has adversely impacted the team build, thus improving build quality.

"The 7.21 release fits well into the CA Software Change Manager r12 (CA SCM) release, particularly Meister's ability to support refactoring" explains Prajval Parthasarathy, Vice President, Software Change Management, CA. "CA SCM fully supports the refactoring process within the CA SCM repository. Meister automatically updates the build scripts to re-build after refactoring on the users local machine, pre-commit, or on the central continuous integration server, rounding out the refactoring process." Both CA SCM and Meister 7.21 will be demonstrated this week at CA World 2008 in Las Vegas.

The 7.21 release also includes improvements to workflow processing, included in both Meister and Mojo. The use of nested Workflows has been added to reduce the number of workflows that need to be defined to any single installation, streamlining the workflow process. Mojo is a free product offering from OpenMake Software that manages the workflow process. It can be downloaded from http://www.openmakesoftware.com/get-mojo/

About OpenMake Software

OpenMake Software has been an innovator of build and release management solutions for global 2000 organizations since 1995. By managing more build engines, such as MSBuild and Ant, OpenMake Software represents the natural virtualization of the application build process derived directly from popular IDEs such as Microsoft Visual Studio and Eclipse. Putting workflow on top of chaos does not solve the build problems. OpenMake Software provides free workflow management with Mojo, but addresses the entire build management challenge with Meister.
