New Razor Release Coming in March!

A new release of Razor (the version number is currently TBD because we're working on a new, improved approach) is planned for March. This release incorporates changes to last Fall's major v4.2 release. Notable among the changes are:

--- Extension of Razor password length to 16 characters. This will give Razor users more flexibility and security by providing up to 16 characters for passwords.

--- Correction of the Versions uncheckin function via command line. The command 'razor -c un_co -f -g ' was not working properly in v4.2 and is now fixed.

--- Correction of the Versions Attributes Edit. In v4.2, editing a Versions Attribute could produce an abnormal Razor exit. This has been corrected.

--- Support for NT/2000 servers with multiple interface cards. Razor will now search up to 60 interface cards looking for a non-zero MAC address. In v4.2, if a user has multiple interface cards and the first one returns a zero value, Razor is not able to produce the correct license information.

Technical Tips

Razor SCC

Razor SCC is an exciting option that first became available for PC users with the introduction of Razor 4.2. RazorSCC runs on Windows 95/98/NT/2000 and incorporates a variety of software development tools within one program (an editor, compiler, linker, debugger, etc.).

To successfully install RazorSCC, you must already have an API in place.

Razor 4.2 supports version 1.1 of the SCC API and fully integrates with the Visual Studio suite.

How to "Rename" a Thread

While there is no "rename" option per se, you can duplicate the thread and give it a new name. After the duplication has been made, you can delete the old thread or use it as a backup. Here's the command for duplication:

# razor -c dup -f <name> -g <group> -n <new name> -t <title> / [-i <issue[:<issue group>]>]
