Atlassian eyes agile teams with Bamboo tool upgrade

Continuous integration server technology upgrade adds deployment capabilities

Eying agile software development teams, Atlassian will release on Wednesday an upgrade to its Bamboo continuous integration server that adds continuous deployment functionality.

Bamboo 3.0 enables developers to automate the build process and spur software testing. Agile development teams can reduce hours from their software development times, identify problems, and gain insight into development practices, Atlassian said. Continuous deployment in version 3.0 adds to previous capabilities for building and testing code, said Giancarlo Lionetti, product marketing manager for development tools at Atlassian.

The product leverages the notion of continuous development going on in an agile shop, Lionetti said. "The idea here is this kind of plays into that whole continuous deployment, continuous development process," he said.

Also featured in Bamboo 3.0 is the ability to integrate with the Mercurial distributed version control system. The product already had limited support for the Git version control system but improves upon that, the company said. Other new capabilities include a new UI, to make it easier to find information about a build; software artifact-sharing, for saving on build time; tighter integration with Atlassian's bug tracker; and bug fixes.

Bamboo has been used with Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud to scale large builds in a cloud environment, Atlassian said. The company also is revealing that it has acquired two plug-ins: Jira Workflow Designer, which plugs into Jira and visualizes a workflow, and Bamboo Release Management, which links to Bamboo and combines Bamboo and Jira to automate software release management. The plug-ins were acquired from Sysbliss and will now be offered for free. They had been commercially sold before.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
