Problem:

What features have been introduced in StarTeam Server between versions 2008 R2 and 2009 R2?

Resolution:

Features include:

Online Purge
A process that runs in the background, reduces server downtime, purges everything deleted before the last server restart.

Change Packages
A container that aggregates the set of changes committed during a VCM session, and supports propagation across views.

Traces
Bi-directional links from StarTeam items to other StarTeam items across servers, projects & views, and between StarTeam items & non-StarTeam items. Unlike StarTeam links, Traces are versioned and can be branched and shared.
