Buddy v2.1.4 Released (05-06-2018)

New features:

  • From now on you can pass Environment Variables between pipeline actions and consecutive executions

Improvements

  • [Optimization] Pulling the branch list on the ‘Run wildcard pipeline’ view has been optimized. If the list had a couple thousands of branches the loading could take up to several seconds. After the optimization, it’s 10x faster
  • [Version control] You can now search branches on the ‘Run wildcard pipeline’ view
  • [Pipelines] Until now, some actions required a data check before they could be added or edited. For example, in the SFTP action we were checking whether we can connect to the server and upload a file to the given location. Since now, no verification is required. You can still check the data with the new ‘Test’ button, though
  • [Pipelines] Until now, values of encrypted variables were showing how many characters a variable had. Now, this number is a fixed value
  • [Updates] Heroku CLI has been updated to 7.0.60

Bug Fixes

  • [Android] The ‘Sign APK’ action was not working properly if you used a key that wasn’t secured with a password. Fixed
  • [GitHub] If a project synchronized with a GitHub repository was deleted, it was not possible to add this project again. Big thanks to Alex for pointing that out – fixed!

New build action: Scala apps

Complementing the already extensive stack of languages and framework served by Buddy, we’re pleased to announce that we now support Scala builds!

Scala is a high-level language that combines object-oriented and functional programming. It can be easily mixed with Java, allowing developers to build high-performance applications with huge ecosystems of libraries. Example use cases involve writing large-sized analytics and machine learning engines.

New task runner: Leiningen for Clojure builds

We’re pleased to announce that Clojure developers have officially become a part of the Buddy family: now you can use the Leiningen task runner to automate building and testing of your Clojure apps!

Clojure is a dynamic, general-purpose programming language which combines the approachability of a scripting language with an efficient infrastructure for multithreaded programming. It shines especially when the problem involves a high level of concurrency, or when processing large series of data is required.

Buddy's GDPR compliance

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will set a new standard for how companies use and protect EU citizens’ data. The regulation will become effective on the 25th May 2018. You can find all information about GDPR at https://www.eugdpr.org/.

We have worked hard to ensure that we fulfill its obligations and maintain our transparency about personal data processing. As a result, we can now officially announce that Buddy is compliant with the GDPR.
