We’re off with a bang this week, starting to roll out several new core platform features, and showing off how StackStorm can integrate into systems of all types.
We love showing off our platform, and this week we’re releasing the Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery Canary Pipeline. How about that for a title? We’ve just been lovingly calling it ‘the canary’. The aim of showing this is to demonstrate the flexibility of StackStorm as it integrates into many different tools and workflows. The code itself is pretty opinionated about how it works, but much of this code is built to be reusable, and we’re including all of the infrastructure components necessary to build and deploy the pipeline itself so you can take a look. We’re hoping it gets your imagination going, so please check it out, and let us know your thoughts.
This week, we’re pleased to announce the release of StackStorm v0.7.0! Several notable features to mention with this release:
Cannot forget to mention all the fun stability improvements this release. Grab the latest code from the backpacks of our panda friends* at http://stackstorm.com/start-now/.
We are kicking off this week the beginning of a series of actions around Automated Troubleshooting. Over the next several weeks, additional actions specifically focused on gaining introspection into a system will be finding their way toward our repositories.
We mentioned these last week, but always worth repeating! We’ve been busy out and about over the last few weeks, and recorded some videos for you to enjoy in your favorite office chair or home recliner.
In addition to all of the above, we are continuing to work with partners on integrations of StackStorm tailored to their specific use-cases, learning more about the power of our platform and ways we can continue to grow it. If you haven’t already, we invite you to check out our product by installing StackStorm and following the quick start instructions — it will take less than 30 minutes to give you a taste of our automation.

Until Next Time!
