“Disco” Dirk Nowitzki approves of release 4.1

Howdy, Concourse community. James Ma is still enjoying his much deserved time off, so I will be taking over the weekly update today with an assist from Alex Suraci. Short week for the Concourse team with the office closed for Labour Day on Monday, but there was still a lot happening.

Here’s what we’ve been up to:

Concourse 4.1.0

As promised in last week’s update, Concourse v4.1.0 was officially released last Thursday afternoon. The release had a bunch of valuable pull requests from the community, which was great to see. While the core team were mostly focused on fixing bugs, the community contributed a lot of the key features within the release. Expect 4.1.1 out early next week with more fixes.

UX

  • Started on an update that allows users to insert a token manually during login when running ‘fly’ from a remote shell #2464
  • Continued on a design enhancement to prioritize pipelines from teams a user belongs to over publicly exposed pipelines within the Concourse dashboard #2427

Core

  • Continued ahead on #2386
  • We’re working on extracting the migration library which was introduced in 4.1.0 into a separate package that we can support for open source.

Runtime

  • Mostly completed effort on a feature to emit build logs to an operator configured syslog destination. #2104
