People, Friends, Packagers,
are you ready for another set of great features for your free software packaging needs? We are with version 2.5. of the Open Build Service(OBS)!
With this release you can plug OBS into your continuous integration/delivery chain thanks to the new token API that let's you trigger builds from revision control systems like github. 2.5 further merges the Web UI and API into one single Ruby on Rails app, so it is easier for you to maintain, easier for us to extend and most important way snappier to use for your packagers.
This release also begins to unify the various places where you can configure things into the OBS API, introduces an integrated comment and notification system and saves your OBS servers some cycles by automatically cleaning up left over branches. As you can see our team never tires to be awesome! Read on for more, in depth, information about OBS version 2.5.
