  • CatLight 2.8 - Acknowledge build state

    catlight · 0 · Posted

    Sometimes the build is going to be red or yellow for a while. In CatLight 2.8, you can acknowledge it in context menu and focus on other builds.

     

     

     

    You can use this feature to see up-to date status of other builds in a tray icon. When all broken builds are acknowledged, tray icon will show a yellow outline cat. If new build breaks down, tray icon will turn a solid yellow or red. This will remind you that you have new things to fix.

     

    Other changes in this release:

    • Performance optimizations for Work Item monitoring in
  • CatLight 2.7 - Jenkins improvements (performance + branches)

    catlight · 0 · Posted

    We have a new Jenkins adapter implementation in CatLight 2.7. It has several improvements:

    • Faster polling times when only small number of jobs is monitored.
    • Reduced server load on Jenkins server that has hundreds of jobs.
    • Better integration with Multibranch Pipeline and GitHub organization plugins. CatLight will now show branch-jobs as branches. You can select top-level job in monitoring settings, and CatLight will automatically monitor child jobs for active branches. You can fine-tune branch monitoring in global app settings.
  • Open protocol for integration with continuous delivery servers

    catlight · 0 · Posted

    Introducing CatLight Protocol 1.0 - an open standard for continuous delivery servers. CatLight app can now connect to any server that implements this protocol.

     

    New protocol is a replacement for obsolete cc.xml format that was created over a decade ago, and no longer meets the feature set of modern build systems.

     

    CatLight protocol has native support for branches, folders, consistent build history, authentication, caching and selective loading. It provides enough information for CatLight app features like build investigations, automatic branch tracking and personalized build dashboard.

     

    We invite developers of continuous delivery servers to implement this protocol to

  • CatLight 2.5 - Monitor builds for Git branches

    catlight · 0 · Posted

    CatLight 2.5 now works with Git branches, and will show a separate build history for each branch.

    We divide branches in four categories:

    • Primary - they will be always visible on the dashboard. They include branches like master, develop, trunk, etc.
    • Short-lived - those are branches for pull requests. CatLight will show them for one day on the dashboard.
    • Other - this is a category for feature, bugfix and release branches. They will be tracked while they are active, and had at least one build in the past week.
    • Ignored - those branches will not be monitored. You can hide

    VSTS is going to have a breaking change in the API: unique account id will have a different value in a couple of months. We are rolling out an update that will make CatLight compatible with this change.

  • New tray icons for acknowledged status

    catlight · 0 · Posted

    CatLight 2.2 adds a new set of tray icons. You will see a colored outline icon when something is broken, but it does not need your attention.

    For example, if the build is broken, but somebody is investigating it, you will get an colored outline icon in tray.

    Another example is acknowledging a list of work items.

    catlight · 0 · Posted

    Exciting news - CatLight 2.0 beta is here! 

    Work item status tracking

    CatLight can now track work items in TFS 2015 and VSTS. You can select an existing query and choose a tracking mode:

    • Show all - use this for queries that should return empty result when everything is ok, and for queues of short-term work. For example: "Important open bugs", "Urgent tasks", "Bugs to verify today".
    • Show changes - use this to track changes in long-term queues of work, like "My tasks", "Backlog", "Recent bugs".

    The app will run the query every minute, check for changes, and notify you

  • Support for HTTP proxy with authentication on Windows

    catlight · 0 · Posted

    In Catlight 1.5 you can use HTTP/HTTPS proxy that requires authentication. To do that, in main menu, go to edit/settings/proxy tab. 

    By default, Catlight will use system-wide proxy settings, so the manual configuration is needed only for proxies that need username and password, or if you don't want to change the proxy settings in OS.
