    7 Buildbot 0.7.11 was released July 5, 2009
    8 
    9 Developers too numerous to mention contributed to this release.  Buildbot has
   10 truly become a community-maintained application.  Much hard work is not
   11 mentioned here, so please consult the git logs for the detailed changes in this
   12 release.

   14 ** Better Memory Performance, Disk Cleanup
   15 
   16 Buildbot handles its memory usage a bit better, and can automatically purge old
   17 history to keep memory and disk usage low.  Look for eventHorizon,
   18 buildHorizon, logHorizon, and changeHorizon.
   19 
   20 ** Password Protection for Force Build and Stop actions
   21 
   22 It is now possible to require authentication to force build and stop via the
   23 WebStatus interface. To use this, set the 'auth' field of WebStatus to a valid
   24 IAuth implementation. Current implementations are:
   25 	BasicAuth with a list of user/passwords
   26 	HTPasswdAuth with an .htpasswd file
   27 By default, the unauthenticated behavior will occur.
   28 
   29 ** Web Status changes
   30 
   31 The "Graceful Shutdown" feature, as a kind of "force", now obeys allowForce.
   32 
   33 The waterfall and other pages are more deeply interlinked.
   34 
   35 Pending builds can be individually cancelled, or cancelled in bulk.
   36 
   37 ** Fixed Transfer Steps
   38 
   39 Transfer step classes are more reliable; DirectoryUpload and DirectoryDownload
   40 use tarfile instead of manually framing files.  The DirectoryUpload step also
   41 now supports compression.
   42 
   43 ** Conditional Steps
   44 
   45 Steps now take a doStepIf parameter which can be used to implement simple
   46 conditional execution of a step.
   47 
   48 ** Colorized Steps
   49 
   50 Steps are now hilighted with a color in the build view to indicate their
   51 success or failure.
   52 
   53 ** Improved build prioritization
   54 
   55 Bugfixes and fairer scheduling
   56 
   57 ** Transposed Grid
   58 
   59 Similar to the grid view, but with the axes reversed and showing different
   60 info.  Located at /tgrid.
   61 
   62 ** Trigger steps improvements
   63 
   64 Trigger now supports copy_properties, to send selected properties to the
   65 triggered build.
