Bamboo 5.0 Release Notes

15th July 2013

The Atlassian Bamboo team are pleased to announce the release of Bamboo 5.0.

The cornerstone of Bamboo 5.0 is the inclusion of deployment projects, which allow you to automate the building, testing and deployment of your software products with the click of a mouse.

Learn more about the advantages of Bamboo 5.0 in the Bamboo 5.0 release announcement blog.

We've also fixed over 87 bugs in this release. Please see the 'Updates and fixes in this release' section below for details.

Bamboo 5.0 is of course free to all customers with active Bamboo software maintenance

If you are upgrading, please read the Bamboo 5.0 Upgrade Guide.

Improvements and new features

We prioritized the improvements and features voted for by you, including:

  • Bamboo 5.0 programatically combines JIRA versions and release candidate builds of your application for better tracking from the planning phase through to development and release
  • Bamboo’s release versioning provides a unique identifier for the build that’s being deployed: know exactly which release version is running in which environment, and see which issues informed that release
  • Improved communication helps tame the beasts known as software releases. Commenting on release candidates, broken or approved tagging, and other Bamboo 5 features make improved cross-team communication a reality
