Today we officially released Bamboo 1.0, our server software that automates the process of continuously building, integrating and testing software code. By automating the software build process and providing instant notification of problems with the software’s code, Bamboo helps development teams reduce project risk, improve productivity and enhance software quality.
We put our own twist on continuous integration by building into Bamboo build telemetry—Bamboo gives you heaps of metrics about your builds to help you see the big picture. From Mark’s post on the developer blog about the release:
But how is the project doing compared to three months ago? Are the builds still breaking as often as before? Which tests are broken the most often? When things get broken, how long do the tests take to fix? Bamboo’s Build Telemetry gives you the numbers and statistics to these questions and help you understand your builds over time. You can even run custom reports to compare different build plans.

SYDNEY, Australia–(BUSINESS WIRE)—Atlassian Software Systems today introduced Bamboo, server software that automates the process of continuously building, integrating and testing software code. Bamboo adds to the company’s set of lightweight enterprise software products, a new category of software that differs from traditional enterprise software in terms of cost, ease of use, and flexibility.
By automating the software build process and providing instant notification of problems with the software’s code, Bamboo helps development teams reduce project risk, improve productivity and enhance software quality.
“Builds are monotonous and painful for most software teams,” said Mike Cannon-Brookes, Atlassian co-founder and CEO. “Bamboo automates the process, and at the same time gives developers much greater insight into the engineering process than other build servers.”
Going beyond traditional continuous integration, Bamboo collates build metrics and offers dynamic reports and charts, providing greater insight into development processes. This insight, which Atlassian calls ‘build telemetry,’ helps team members spend less time tracking code problems, and helps managers identify trends, patterns and linkages across all builds.
Bamboo’s features include:
- Dynamic notifications — choose email, RSS or instant messaging
- Interoperability — integrate with Jira, Maven, Ant and other popular development tools
- Practical interface — find information quickly and easily
- Customisable reports — drill down on pertinent statistics
- Easy installer — get up and running in no time
