“We are always listening to our customers and striving to improve the user experience,” says Jaclyn Barnard, Director of Business Development at Roundtable Software. “Our customers know better than anyone what features and functionality will help their business the most. We used this latest release to respond to their needs to ensure we are delivering the best user experience possible. ”

Roundtable’s ability to enforce task-driven development is a key feature that promotes developer agility and accelerates time-to-value. “11.8 has improved the Tasks view within the plug-in client to organize Objects by Product and Product Module. This significant visual improvement increases productivity for developers when working on multiple Objects within a single Task,” says Jeff Ledbetter, Roundtable Product Architect.

To satisfy unique client requirements, many of Roundtable’s customers create specific releases of their large-scale enterprise applications for each individual client. 11.8 has further improved and streamlined that capability. “For those Roundtable customers who are also application vendors that heavily customize their application, 11.8 now intelligently chooses Product Modules selections for Custom Variants, making the UI simpler and quicker to use,” explains Ledbetter.

Roundtable offers developers the flexibility to customize TSMS to integrate their own development life-cycle functionality tools. With new options entering the market at a rapid pace, 11.8 continues to support this capability so Roundtable customers can use the tools they want. “We added more integration points via hooks to make integration easier. For example, publishing context-menu creation now allows customers to more easily insert their own menu items into Roundtable, which gives them immediate access to their own tools,” says Ledbetter.

To improve system performance, Roundtable 11.8 also addresses potential bottlenecks involved with creating and storing impact analysis data during compilation.

A summary of all features and changes can be found in the 11.8 Update Bulletin.

“We pride ourselves on our strong, collaborative customer relationships,” explains Jaclyn Barnard, Director of Business Development at Roundtable Software. “Their feedback is incredibly valuable and will continue to play a significant role in the evolution of TSMS.”
