CruiseControl.rb 1.1


#1

Dear all,

CruiseControl.rb 1.1 is out of the gates.

CruiseControl.rb [http://cruisecontrolrb.thoughtworks.com] is a
continuous integration tool. Its basic purpose in life is to alert
members of a software project when one of them checks something into
source control that breaks the build.

Version 1.1 is a follow-up release to 1.0, mostly consisting of bug
fixes and usability enhancements. Growl notification plugin, RSS feeds
for individual projects, an ability to run as a proper Linux daemon
and to peacefully coexist with non-English Subversion installs are the
most noteworthy features of this release.

List of changes in version

  • individual RSS feeds for each project
  • documented options configurable through config/site_config.rb
  • added a “from” option to EmailNotifier configuration
  • added Growl notifier to available plugins
  • email notices can contain either full build log, or a link to the
    dashboard
  • builder does not clear RAILS_ENV environment variable before
    calling custom tasks
  • builder always sets RAILS_ENV environment to ‘test’ before calling
    default tasks
  • “cannot connect to Subversion” situations, plugin errors and other
    problems that occur outside of a build loop are
    now displayed on the dashboard
  • custom project settings are displayed on the build log page
  • [bugfix] Fixed cruise start --daemon option
  • [bugfix] Removed incomplete builds from RSS feeds
  • [bugfix] CC.rb can now live with localized (non-English) Subversion
  • [bugfix] Fixed problems with CCTray introduced in 1.0 by adding a
    new build status ‘incomplete’
  • [bugfix] Corrected documentation to say “[cruise]/projects/”
    instead of “[cruise]/builds/”
  • [bugfix] Recognize Solaris as a platform
    Upgrading from 1.0

There are no changes in data storage format, so upgrading from version
1.0 is easy:

  1. Rename the old installation: mv ccrb/ ccrb.bak/
  2. Download from http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=2918 and unpack.
  3. Move to the path where the old installation was: mv
    cruisecontrolrb-1.1.0/ ccrb/
  4. Move projects/ directory: mv ccrb.bak/projects ccrb/
  5. Copy site_config.rb over: cp ccrb.bak/config/site_config.rb
    ccrb/config
