Mark Chaimungkalanont, lead developer on Bamboo, is going to be discussing our newest product on Thursday (you’re invited!), but he gave us San Francisco Atlassians a preview of it last Friday. I had seen some of it while the product was still in beta, but I hadn’t seen the latest version which includes a very cool feature for notifying users about a build’s status.
There are several options for notifications, one of them is instant messaging, ie, Bamboo will notify you via IM when a build breaks. That’s nice, but what’s even cooler is that you can reply in plain English back to the server to label the build result. Here’s a great video demonstrating how this works. Check it out, it’s really quite cool.
The developers have recently added other videos to the Bamboo page here.
Hope to see you on Thursday!
