New Octopus build, website and screenshots
New builds of Octopus are available immediately from my CI server, and can be downloaded from the Octopus downloads page. Every couple of weeks, though, I'll publish a short list of what's going on.
The last couple of weeks saw a lot of new features added.
- A dashboard, to give you a high level overview of which projects are deployed to what environment.
- Edit release notes for releases that have already been created.
- Scope variables on a per-package basis, in addition to per-environment and per-machine
- A more streamlined release user experience
A number of bug fixes and tiny enhancements are also included, from a quick list of projects that appear when you hover over the Projects tab, to correctly uninstalling old NuGet packages.
Below is a screenshot of the new dashboard - you can see larger versions of this screenshot and more on the Features page of the new Octopus website.
Welcome, my name is Paul Stovell. I live in Brisbane and work full time bootstrapping my own product company around Octopus Deploy, an automated deployment tool for .NET applications.
Prior to Octopus Deploy, I worked for an investment bank in London building WPF applications, and before that I worked for Readify, an Australian .NET consulting firm, where I was lucky enough to work with some of the best in the business. I also worked on a number of open source projects and was an active user group presenter. I've been a Microsoft MVP for WPF since 2006.
