Roundtable Software Announces Availability of Roundtable TSMS 12.4

Adds security options, further expands audit trail

Franklin, TN – Roundtable® Software has announced the availability of the next release of its industry-leading software configuration management solution Roundtable TSMS 12.4.  With 12.4, Roundtable has added more security options, expanded its audit trail, and improved the developer experience.

“Roundtable TSMS continues to be the solution that Fortune 500 companies to SMBs worldwide trust to manage their OpenEdge enterprise applications. While the principles of the software configuration management do not dramatically change over time, security and audit requirements certainly do,” says Jaclyn Barnard, Director of Business Development at Roundtable Software.

“As with our prior release 12.3,” Barnard continues, “12.4 not only equips our customers to meet those increasing demands but also recognizes that not all may be subject to them at this time. (Who wants to change their password every 60 days? Not me.) With many of these new features also comes an on/off switch. With 12.4, you are prepared but are not forced into implementing anything until you are ready. In the meanwhile, you can continue to benefit from many of our other new enhancements.”

New enhancements include:

More Security Controls

Roundtable TSMS 12.4 continues to add to the trajectory of security improvements launched in the prior release. With 12.3, Roundtable strengthened its security options, allowing managers to implement stricter password rules as well as more granularly distribute administrative duties with the introduction of the new Security Administrator role and new permission groups. With 12.4, managers may set password expiration days, choose to allow/disallow local credentials for login, and track last logins.

Roundtable Product Architect Jeff Ledbetter explains, “Many of our customers have strict compliance requirements across the entire application lifecycle. Their auditors not only want to see stricter security controls and auditing in their own applications, but also in the tools they are using to manage their application development.”

More Audit Data

Roundtable TSMS 12.4 continues to add to the trajectory of audit data as well. With 12.4, Roundtable captures audit data for Workspace and System changes. With the addition of security controls, Roundtable has added corresponding login data to user reports.

“As one of our customers put it, ‘we [developers] are in and out of Roundtable every day.’ It is where they live. It is where all substantial development work occurs. The possibilities are practically endless for capturing audit data,” says Barnard. “We have been working with our customers to identify what they want or need that they are not already seeing and ensuring this data is readily available to them.”

Improved Object Searching

Among a series of other usability and performance improvements, Roundtable TSMS 12.4 extends the Eclipse open resource dialog in the plug-in client for improved object searching.

“We wanted to give our users a more integrated feel with the Eclipse (Progress Developers Studio) environment. Extending the open resource dialog provides a more native platform experience for searching and opening objects from Roundtable.”

In addition to these updates, Roundtable TSMS 12.4 includes other GUI client, plug-in client, and server enhancements. To learn more about Roundtable TSMS 12.4 and to see the full list of new and enhanced features, read the Roundtable TSMS 12.4 Update Bulletin.
