Black Duck Boosts Suite Usability and Performance With Enhancements to Protex

Protex 5.1 Offers Improved Search and Performance for Large Enterprise Code Sets, Builds on Expanded KnowledgeBase

WALTHAM, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/10/10 -- Black Duck Software, the leading global provider of products and services for accelerating software development through the managed use of open source software, today announced enhancements to Protex, the code analysis engine that is a core component of the Black Duck Suite, a comprehensive platform for managing the use of open source in a multi-source development process.

Protex version 5.1, available immediately, provides faster, more precise code search capability with significant performance boosts. Enhancements include:

-- Faster -- for enterprise users running code scans and analysis on very
   large data sets, performance enhancements will speed searches on
   computer-intensive activities -- such as calculating a Bill of Materials
   for a complex software application -- by up to a factor of five.

-- Improved search -- The Protex 5.1 Advanced Search function, based on
   Lucene 2.9, offers the ability to use leading wildcard characters and
   allows improved query structure. Named searches can now be 250
   characters in length.

-- KnowledgeBase enhancements to the Suite include 10,000 new projects, 600
   new sites and over 300 new open source licenses. This version also shows
   release dates for projects allowing users to more easily match their
   code with a specific release. With the most comprehensive KnowledgeBase
   in the industry, customers have increased confidence in the code
   analysis results versus competitive offerings.

"Enhancements to the Protex 5.1 module of the Black Duck Suite significantly improve productivity and speed of analysis," said Bill McQuaide, EVP of Products and Strategy, Black Duck Software. "Unlike other code analysis tools, the Suite can quickly search and analyze enterprise-scale code bases comprised of hundreds of megabytes of code. For our enterprise customers -- the majority of whom have chosen the Black Duck Suite -- the performance and search support enhancements provide a distinct competitive advantage."
