Pulse Continuous Integration Server 2.5 Alpha!

Cobwebs may be creeping over the blog, but not over Pulse: we’ve just published the first Pulse 2.5 alpha build! The Pulse 2.5 series is focused (even more so than usual) on customer feedback. We’ve got plenty of great ideas from the Pulse community, and we’re folding in some of the best ones in this release series. Updates so far include:

  • Browse and dashboard view filtering (by project health).
  • A new MSTest post-processor plugin.
  • Increased visibility of build (and other) comments.
  • Comments on agents, to communicate with other users.
  • Properties on agents, for simpler parameterisation.
  • The ability to configure SCMs using resources.
  • A resource repository on the Pulse master.
  • A new option to attach build logs to notification emails.
  • Pre-stage hooks, which run just before the stage is dispatched to the agent.
  • SCM inclusion filters, complementing existing exclusion filters.
  • Inverse resource requirements (i.e. requiring the absence of a resource).
  • Smart label renaming.
  • A separate permission for the ability to clean up build directories.
  • Support for Perforce streams.

There’s plenty more to come in subsequent alpha builds, too. In fact, we’ve started the groundwork for some other larger changes already in 2.5.0.

To grab yourself a fresh-from-the-oven 2.5 alpha build, or just to find out more, head over to our alpha program page.
