What’s new and updated in Buildkite
Buildkite Agent 2.1.5
Posted February 29, 2016 by Samuel
We've just released a new Buildkite Agent stable version: 2.1.5 🎉
This release fixes a few minor issues we've seen since the previous stable version, including:
- Amazon Linux upstart was killing agents too aggressively, causing spurious build failures when auto-scaling (#244)
- Timeouts were always sending a SIGTERM instead of any configured signal (#215)
- Fetching specific git commits doesn't fetch refs and was causing checkout failures, and some other minor git fetch issues (#243)
This last issue has been cropping up for several users. It usually looks something like:
$ git fetch -q origin abc123 2> /dev/null || git fetch -q $ git reset --hard origin/my-branch fatal: ambiguous argument 'origin/my-branch': unknown revision or path not in the working tree. Use '--' to separate paths from revisions, like this: 'git <command> [<revision>...] -- [<file>...]'
This release has been published to the Buildkite package repositories. For instructions on upgrading your agent please see the Upgrading section in the corresponding section of our installation documentation.

Happy building! 😁
