    The new 2.0.3 Early Access build now supports source controlling your databases with Perforce.

    To get the new Early Access release please visit the following link:

    Please note that we don’t support accessing the history directly from within SSMS when using Perforce.

        @Mike - it's been available for some time. If you're on the latest version of SQL Source Control, select Custom from the link dialog and you'll find Perforce in the dropdown. Another approach is to use the "Working Folder" option, which means that SQL Source Control reads and writes to a Perforce working folder, and you use the P4 client (or command line) to do the interactions with version control. This is desirable if you need to check in database changes alongside application changes, for example.

        Is Perforce now available for general release or must we use the early release for our tool evaluation

        We could really use a tool to source control all of our databases to Perforce. We currently use SQL Compare to generate the scripts and then manually integrate them into a production brach of code. Using a tool like source control would make this process seamless and help us out a bunch!
