Buildbot 0.7.9 was released a couple weeks ago. Today I will be importing it into our CVS tree, upgrading the aging 0.7.7 code. Before doing an import I will branch the current tip of trunk as BUILDBOT_0_7_7_BRANCH. This will let us easily checkout 0.7.7 code and if necessary, land 0.7.7 specific fixes.
Any checkouts of mozilla/tools/buildbot on HEAD will update to the new code with 'cvs up'. If you don't want this to happen you should delete your checkout and get the BUILDBOT_0_7_7_BRANCH ('cvs co -r BUILDBOT_0_7_7_BRANCH').
Here's some of the more exciting fixes and enhancements:
- The /buildslaves page now highlights disconnected slaves, making it easier to see that information at-a-glance
- Build properties can now be passed via a Scheduler
- Build properties can be set with ShellCommand's through the new 'SetProperty' BuildStep
