Displaying Reports Earlier

We’re changing how you can view Solano CI’s processing of events that trigger builds, for example like the webhooks sent from GitHub. An event can be a webhook, a push from the command line, a “build now”, or a scheduled build. We’ve always tracked incoming events (e.g. pushes) separately from viewable Sessions (i.e. Builds), and there hasn’t […]

Changes to Configuring Language Versions

In the past, Solano CI users were able to set language versions directly from the command-line using the solano gem. These versions would be saved (or read from our system default), to be used by the repository for future builds. Starting on June 15th 2015, users will only be able to set language versions using the […]

New Feature: Configuration Validation

We’re happy to announce a new feature of Solano CI: validated solano.yml configurations. One of the most common support issues we see is configuration mistakes.  YAML is a much friendlier format for configuration files than, say, XML, but it comes with its own set of gotchas.  If your editor helpfully converts whitespace to tabs, that’s […]

New Feature: Organizations

We’ve just released a major update to user and billing management, along with streamlining changes to the main “dashboard” view. Our concept of “organizations” should be familiar to users of other popular products, and its introduction should be seamless for all of our existing users. Instead of belonging to a single “account”, a user can […]

Tddium for JRuby

Here at Solano we’ve run over 13 million tests since Tddium launched.  We hear on a regular basis that a fast, automatically managed continuous integration platform changes the way our users develop software.  We’ve also heard from folks that want the power of on-demand testing and CI with Tddium but use JRuby.  We’re therefore pleased […]
