San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) December 3, 2008
ThoughtWorks™, the pioneering Agile IT consultancy and Software Company, today announced the availability of Cruise 1.1, an upgrade to its Continuous Integration and Release Management tool. Cruise 1.1 offers support for Perforce and Git, role-based security for approvals, the ability to re-run builds, and UI and performance improvements. With the release of Cruise 1.1, teams can get more visibility into and control over their build, deploy test and release process.
Cruise 1.1 provides enhanced features to support deployment management processes, such as the ability to re-run stages. This allows teams to roll back their testing or production environments to a known good build at the touch of a button. With Cruise 1.1's new role-based security, administrators can also control exactly who is able to run manual processes within Cruise, so that only authorized users can perform builds and deployments within Cruise.
An improved user interface provides increased visibility into which parts of your build, test and release process have been run for the different versions of your software. Cruise 1.1 also comes with support for Perforce and Git, two popular and widely-used revision control systems, and includes performance enhancements that allow a single server to run thousands of builds a day on build clouds built from commodity hardware with unparalleled reliability.
"Many companies suffer from complex, time-consuming and error-prone build and release management processes that give team's feedback too late, if at all. The new features in Cruise 1.1 provide teams with superior control over their deployment process, and opens up Cruise to users of two world-leading version control systems, making it easier than ever for teams to get their build, deploy, test and release processes under control," said Jez Humble, Cruise Product Manager at ThoughtWorks.
Cruise is a part of ThoughtWorks' Application Lifecycle Management Suite which also includes the recently launched products Twist (Collaborative Testing tool), and ThoughtWorks' flagship product, Mingle (Agile Project Management).
Cruise 1.1 is available immediately for purchase under both perpetual and annual subscription licenses. In addition, community licenses are available for not-for-profit institutions, academic use, and open-source projects. For a free trial visit: http://www.thoughtworks.com/cruise
