Changes, updates and tidbits from the Buildkite team
Posted March 18, 2016 by Tim
We’ve just released Buildkite Agent v2.1.8 (Triantiwontigongolope 🐛) 🎉
What’s new since v2.1.6? A whole slew of bug reports have been closed, including an important fix for running multiple commands, improved build log streaming performance, and a few handy new features:
BUILDKITE_S3_ACCESS_URLenvironment variable to point to your own S3 proxy host (such as s3auth.com or aws-s3-proxy) to view your private artifacts in your web browser directly from the links in the Buildkite web interface 🎉
BUILDKITE_GIT_CLEAN_FLAGSenvironment variable to configure the flags passed to
git cleanon every build. By default we don't specify
-x, which can lead to unexpected files being left around from previous builds if they’re in your git ignore list. In the future we're making
-xthe default, but in the meantime you can add
export BUILDKITE_GIT_CLEAN_FLAGS="-fxd"in your agent’s environment hook and enjoy pristine checkouts.
armhfarchitecture, allowing you to run the agent on platforms such as Scaleway.
A big thank you to everyone who contributed bug reports and GitHub pull requests ❤️
These releases have 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.
