Source Gear Fortress Upgrade

In my migration to VS2010 I found an issue with my current source control provider version.
I am a current Source Gear Fortress customer and running 1.1.1 without a current support agreement.  I checked the Source Gear website about an upgrade to Fortress 2.0 and found it would run over $3000 for my team to upgrade.  I called and spoke to sales and they informed me of an offer they have until June 15th. 

I have been using them for several years and been really happy. While I am considering moving to TFS (with all the positive changes in TFS2010) I will be using Fortress for a while longer.

If you're a current Source Gear user and cannot switch to TFS right now you should look into this offer.

This is the offer they have for a limited time:

Last week Microsoft announced the release of Visual Studio 2010. For the next 60 days, you can upgrade to Fortress 2.0 for just $149/user.

Why upgrade? Fortress 2.0 fully supports Visual Studio 2010 integration. Even better, $149 is $10 off the usual upgrade price from version 1.1 ($249).

You don't need to be a VS 2010 user to be eligible for the discount. If you've received this e-mail, you can upgrade to Fortress 2.0 for just $149.

There are lots of other great reasons to upgrade, including:

•    New VSS Handoff
•    New Shelve Feature
•    Web Client Redesign
•    Email Settings Improvements
•    WebDAV connections enable cross-platform support for DreamWeaver

It's easy to upgrade. Login to the SourceGear Customer Service Portal [CSP] using the link below to see our product catalog. You'll see an option to purchase a new Fortress 2.0 key for $149 for each license registered under your name:


This offer will expire on June 15, so don't delay.
