As a special service "Fossies" has tried to format the requested text file into HTML format (style: standard

1 Buildbot 0.6.4 was released 28 Apr 2005
3 ** major bugs fixed
5 The 'buildbot' tool in 0.6.3, when used to create a new buildmaster, failed
6 unless it found a 'changes.pck' file. As this file is created by a running
7 buildmaster, this made 0.6.3 completely unusable for first-time
8 installations. This has been fixed.
10 ** minor bugs fixed
12 The IRC bot had a bug wherein asking it to watch a certain builder (the "I'll
13 give a shout when the build finishes" message) would cause an exception, so
14 it would not, in fact, shout. The HTML page had an exception in the "change
15 sources" page (reached by following the "Changes" link at the top of the
16 column that shows the names of commiters). Re-loading the config file while
17 builders were already attached would result in a benign error message. The
18 server side of the PBListener status client had an exception when providing
19 information about a non-existent Build (e.g., when the client asks for the
20 Build that is currently running, and the server says "None").
22 These bugs have all been fixed.
24 The unit tests now pass under python2.2; they were failing before because of
25 some 2.3isms that crept in. More unit tests which failed under windows now
26 pass, only one (test_webPathname_port) is still failing.
28 ** 'buildbot' tool looks for a .buildbot/options file
30 The 'statusgui' and the 'debugclient' subcommands can both look for a
31 .buildbot/ directory, and an 'options' file therein, to extract default
32 values for the location of the buildmaster. This directory is searched in the
33 current directory, its parent, etc, all the way up to the filesystem root
34 (assuming you own the directories in question). It also look in ~/.buildbot/
35 for this file. This feature allows you to put a .buildbot at the top of your
36 working tree, telling any 'buildbot' invocations you perform therein how to
37 get to the buildmaster associated with that tree's project.
39 Windows users get something similar, using %APPDATA%/buildbot instead of
40 ~/.buildbot .
42 ** windows ShellCommands are launched with 'cmd.exe'
44 The buildslave has been modified to run all list-based ShellCommands by
45 prepending [os.environ['COMSPEC'], '/c'] to the argv list before execution.
46 This should allow the buildslave's PATH to be searched for commands,
47 improving the chances that it can run the same 'trial -o foo' commands as a
48 unix buildslave. The potential downside is that spaces in argv elements might
49 be re-parsed, or quotes might be re-interpreted. The consensus on the mailing
50 list was that this is a useful thing to do, but please report any problems
51 you encounter with it.
53 ** minor features
55 The Waterfall display now shows the buildbot's home timezone at the top of
56 the timestamp column. The default favicon.ico is now much nicer-looking (it
57 is generated with Blender.. the icon.blend file is available in CVS in
58 docs/images/ should you care to play with it).
