Branch-based deployments – new in Bamboo 5.2

Shipping a new feature always brings a mixture of emotions, no matter your role in getting it out the door. The sense of accomplishment is sweet, albeit tempered by the knowledge that there are so many cool things that aren't shipping in this iteration... but you also get that spike of anticipatory excitement when you think of shipping those cool things in future iterations. The whole thing is like chipotle-spiced dark chocolate with PopRocks (this actually exists, and should be its own food group). So

RebelLabs cooks up a continuous delivery pipeline with Bamboo

The mad-scientists-turned-provocateurs over at RebelLabs have released yet another stellar (and entertaining) report for software makers, Release Management for Enterprises.
