What’s new and updated in Buildkite
Agent v3.45.0 and AWS Elastic Stack v5.18.0 release
Posted March 23, 2023 by Narthana
The latest agent release includes the job-api experiment, which enables an HTTP API within the agent, allowing jobs to inspect and mutate their environment without using bash. This is a big step towards supporting hooks and plugins in other languages.
Other experimental features include:
- allowing spawning agents with a descending priority, rather than the default ascending priority
- artifacts can now be uploaded to S3 compatible endpoints such as MinIO.
Other updates to this release include:
- the AWS Elastic Stack has been updated with a newer version of buildx
- the managed secrets buckets created by the stack now have public ACLs explicitly blocked
