New Octopus build, website and screenshots

This is an old post and doesn't necessarily reflect my current thinking on a topic, and some links or images may not work. The text is preserved here for posterity.

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.
