Upgrading to Bamboo 3.4
Git Submodule Support
By supporting native Git clients in addition to its embedded Git implementation, Bamboo now unlocks the full power of Git while still making it easy to get started. The new support for Git Submodules allows you to structure your projects the way you want, and makes it easy to build multimodule projects.
It is still simple to get started with Git. If you don't have a native Git client installed on your agent, Bamboo will automatically fall back to its embedded Git implementation. To use the improved Git support, simply let Bamboo know where the Git executable is located.
In Bamboo 3.3 we made it easy to add multiple repositories, and now in 3.4 we make it easy to share them. Are you using the same repository in multiple plans and are tired of keeping them all in sync when the configuration of the repository changes? With Shared Repositories you can define repositories globally and share the configuration with as many plans as you want. When you update the configuration, the change will automatically be picked up by all plans that use the repository definition. More...
Agent Security Improvements
Bamboo 3.4 now provides a way to verify that remote agents are allowed to connect to the Bamboo server. Bamboo prevents unknown agents from connecting to the server. Agents now need to be manually approved by an administrator before they can communicate with the server in any way. Note that Elastic agents do not have to be approved. This improvement means that sensitive information on the Bamboo server is now much more secure. More...
New Email Templates
We've made the Bamboo email notification a whole lot easier on the eyes. The new design makes the emails much easier to read and allows you to see all the important information about the build at a glance.
Elastic Bamboo support for Microsoft Windows®
If you've ever wanted to use Elastic Bamboo to test your application in Internet Explorer 9, or for testing .NET applications, Bamboo is able to help you do this quickly and cheaply in the Cloud using Amazon EC2. Start the new Windows 2008 64bit server Elastic Bamboo image with a single click, and get testing on Windows in minutes. More...
