The Atlassian Bamboo team are excited to release Bamboo 5.7.

If you are upgrading, please read the Bamboo upgrade guide.

The Bamboo 5.7 changelog is at the bottom of this page.

Control storage demands of deployment artifacts

As part of our continuous improvement of the deployment and release capabilities of Bamboo, you now have much more control over the storage requirements of your deployment projects.

Global deployment expiry allows you to schedule the deletion of deployment results and release artifacts, so your Bamboo system need never run out of storage space again.

Take charge of build and release variables

We've made variables much more useful in Bamboo. Now you can pass values between stages and from a build plan to a deployment project. You can also inject values from a file, and print build variable values to file.

Even better, you can control the scope of those variables. If you give them local scope they cease to exist when the job finishes. If you give them result scope they persist and are passed into subsequent stages or related deployment releases.

Manage remote Bamboo agents with Docker

Docker is a great way to manage your remote agents. You get:

  • Automated management – you can script the creation and maintenance of your remote agents.
  • Fast duplication and distribution of changes to remote agents.
  • No requirements conflicts when running multiple remote agents on the same host.

We've published two images to the Docker Hub to make it easy for you to get started using Docker with Bamboo.

Use Bamboo with your Node.js projects

Now it's easy to use Bamboo to get continuous integration and deployment for your Node.js projects.

Bamboo 5.7 has new Node.js tasks you can use to run your Node.js scripts and applications.

There are tasks to let your build plans interact with npm, Node.js, Mocha, nodeunit and Grunt.

Quickly find your projects and plans

We've improved searching in Bamboo. Now, Bamboo suggests search results as you type the name for build plans or deployment projects.

Use the '/' (forward slash) shortcut to shift focus to the search tool from any page in Bamboo.

Microsoft SQL Server 2012

Bamboo now supports SQL Server 2012.


Support for Java 6 is deprecated

Bamboo support for Java 6 is deprecated. See the End of support announcements for Bamboo.


Legacy Stash integration features removed in Bamboo 5.7

As previously announced, the following two features are removed in Bamboo 5.7:

  • Stash repository viewer
  • Stash build status notification

You should use the Stash repository type instead, which has both those features built in, and is much easier to set up.
