Stash 2.8: branch-based workflows simplified

Last week, we unveiled tight integrations between Atlassian software development tools that guide your entire branch-based workflow from JIRA issue all the way to merge. Branches are a fundamental component of Git workflows. But choosing a good branch model is the key to making sure your Git workflow is a successful one. Just as the right cheese is crucial for a perfectly creamy mac n' cheese, streamlining how your team creates, names, and merges branches can affect how the team uses a workflow. In

In this post I'd like to highlight various features in Bamboo that were developed separately during the past year or so. If you combine these little pieces together you can make your Bamboo to be a powerful friend in DVCS-oriented software development. This time I'll focus mostly on doing CI on dev branches and merging. Next time I'll cover areas like test failures, quarantining, and a bit about JIRA. One of the main purposes of Bamboo is to build your code, run the tests against it and notify

This post isn't to rant on the benefits of DVCS over CVCS (faster working with code, advanced workflows, and lightweight branching and merging). This post isn't to debate the benefits of various DVCS options, such as Git vs Mercurial. This post is to say
