The Security Scanner is Now AlphaScan™

AlphaScan finds and alerts managers and administrators to hard-coded passwords and access keys left in the source code:

  • Scans commits to your repository and tags any found security vulnerabilities

  • Indexes the entire repository, protecting the entire code base and not leaving anything up for grabs

  • Works in any language and on any text file because it doesn't use syntax to find vulnerabilities

Adding Non-Perforce Users to Perforce Plans

Perforce Cloud customers who wish to add non-Perforce users to their plan at a lower rate to access the Project Management tool are now able to do so from their Account page. If you are the payer of your account, you can add either Perforce users or non-Perforce users by selecting upgrade on your Account page and then using either the Perforce users or non-Perforce users dropdown to select the number of users you would like to add to your account.

Git Code Browser Updates

We are excited to announce a few updates to our in-app code browser! Users can now edit their text files & commit their changes from the Assembla Web App. For more information, check out our help center.

Extended Diff View

Assembla's diff view on commits and merge request has been expanded!

Now, if a user has submitted a file with a particularly large or spread out diff, reviewers can expand the field of view to show more lines of code - all the way up to the entire file if necessary!

Git Security Upgrade

In light of recently-discovered security issues, Assembla has upgraded its version of Git and now runs on Git v2.17.1

Security Release: 2FA & Code Scanning Tool

Two-Factor Authentication: Use a second authentication device with your user profile to verify identity on login and/or require all users in your portfolio to use two-factor authentication when logging in to their Assembla account.

Merge Squashing

Sometimes, when merging a long list of changes from a development branch into the master, it’s useful to squash those commits into one change for ease of review and to declutter the repo’s commit history. Assembla now offers the option to squash all of the commits in a merge request into one commit after the merge is approved and completed.

This feature is only available for Git repositories. To learn more, check out our help article.

New Features Released

Advanced User Permission Controls
This highly requested feature gives account admins granular control to assign access rights to everything within a project including code, tickets, and more. With this, admins can significantly reduce the amount of time they spend managing their teams.

Bulk File Uploads
Assembla users no longer need other tools or to log into the command line to commit new files, saving time and allowing more to get done.

Infinite Scrolling Users will see files automatically populate while scrolling through the code browser. As a part of this new feature, the previous limit on the number of files that can be viewed in the code browser in the webapp.

Time & Ticket Tools Bug Fixes

Issues fixed:

  • "Worked Hours" and "Work Remaining" updated in Ticket comment, but "Time" section doesn't update at all
  • "Worked Hours" and "Work Remaining" updated in Ticket comment, but "Time" section requires a browser refresh to update

Limits for Tree Files Removed

With the introduction of infinite scrolling on our new Code Browser UI, there is no longer a need to limit the number of files in a tree. So, we've removed that limit. Feel free to upload files to your heart's content.

No published changelogs yet.

Surely Assembla will start publishing changelogs very soon.
